    Just wondering why folks waste so much money for Japanese pressings. This japanese MoP inferior to US or Europe releases, with flat "bright" sound, lack of bass and presence. Sometimes japans did great pressings (mostly not rock music) but not in this case.

      This pressing good, do not get me wrong but it has it’s flaws. Lets me explain this as I can. I did not have the “Obi stripped” so I was bummed about it. The vinyl is dead quiet I say it’s more quiet then the Columbia House pressing. For how the Japanese make their vinyls it comes no surprise. I don’t know if the CH and Allied pressing spoil me but I had high hopes for this pressing. It is still one of the better pressing compare to 20 + out there.
      When I say it’s quiet I’m not referring just the surface noises, I’m referring to the material itself. It’s not ominous. It has crystal clarity sound. You can max out the volume and still not enough to fill the house.
      That opening to Battery had a “oof” instead of “BOOM”
      The quietness of bass and mass noticeable.
      There is no filth, just pure cleanliness. If that’s what you after then this is a must have. I believe MoP getting the Japanese makeover wasn’t needed.

        People tend to say that Japanese Pressings sound brighter than others, but the Japanese version of Master of Puppets is absolutely killer. I don't find it sounding bright at all.

            Great pressing. As good as the Elektra/MFN60 pressings. Grab one now!
