      Super clean pressing. Everything sounds perfect and spot on. No need for remasters or vintage releases if you own such a copy.

        Love this album so much! Nothing beats a vinyl copy. Play it loud! Released the year I was born!

          Excellent repress, really compliments the sparse and clean arrangement, making the synth bass shine. Title track is a killer and makes the album worth just on its own
