    Put the wrong label on the record. Both of them say side 3 and side 4. Pressing sounds good tho

      Absolutely silent throughout and the balance seems great to me. Not getting the overly bright sound or too much high end. But maybe that's just me...no complaints whatsoever though. Fantastic album and super happy to add to the collection.

          Did a direct comparison with the original pressing I acquired after owning this one for years. The original pressing (noted by the matrix and the Epic logo on the back cover) is definitely a different master, confirmed by listening and observing the spacing between tracks. The original press is cut louder but also with more dynamics. This repress is a bit more compressed. Most notable in the bass, the original sounds like a subwoofer has been turned on, also more crankable. Original is also warmer but the treble is a little clearer at the same time. This press has the upper mids and treble sitting a bit more forward in the mix, but they sound a bit congested/blurry sometimes. Not going to get into the analogue/digital debate or speculate whether this is the CD master. This is still a great sounding pressing. Some may even prefer the more forward sounding presentation on their system. Mine is free of pressing issues, quiet, and still sounds excellent for this type of music. If you have a keen ear and a good hifi though you might find the original worth it at current prices (£50).

            Great álbum, pressing sounds good, maybe a little too bright

              My matrix numbers and label text are identical to the ones here with one exception. Right after the E-287125 there is a Roman numeral “II”. Was this a miss? I’ll admit it’s etched a lot lighter than the rest matrix number so I’m thinking it’s a miss. Anyone else notice this?

                Looks like the most recent version (currently available) as of 2022 is this pressing, as it has the dreaded circle-U and WG in the deadwax. Sounds good overall but I did notice some noise throughout side 2 (and yes, cleaned it) and some "knocking" at the end of side 3 on Blame it On The Tetons.

                Kind of annoying that this pressing is $40 new and there's even slight defects. United Record Pressing, get your shit together.

                  Not sure if this is an unpopular opinion but I really wish they would release a vinyl without the bonus track. "The Good Times Are Killing Me" is a perfect closer track.

                    Side A played beautifully. Side B has a slight issue with Bury Me With It. It’s legitimately only the first few seconds of the song. It skips over a handful of words in a few places.
                    “We were shootin’ at a mound of dirt. Well nothing was broken nothing was hurt” plays as “We were sho-nothing was broken nothing wa-”.
                    Then it does it again at “But I probably really should have been at work. But if my freetimes gone, would you promise me this? That you please bury me with it” plays as “should have been at work- free time- promise me this-”
                    I have cleaned the vinyl to make sure it wasn’t just dust and it does it in the same places every time. My TT played multiple albums before and after this with zero issues. I absolutely love this album and the rest seems great so far, just this one track is wonky. Bummed out, but it’s still listenable.

                      So this is definitely a HUGE improvement over the CD I've been listening to years. That said, it's not perfect. There's some congestion in the upper mid-range (sounds more like a mixing choice than a mastering problem) and a considerable amount of sibilance in the inner grooves that can be harsh and distracting. Even after an ultrasonic cleaning there is still some surface noise but not enough to be annoying. Still, at the current price point you can't go wrong with this and I'm more than pleased. Buy with confidence if you love the album.
