    Surface noise everywhere, not silent at all, sounds super flat. Also, dust and marks everywhere even if the album was sealed. Couldn't finish listening to it. Tried playing before and after cleaning and couldn't even finish the side A before packing it for return. Worst vinyl I've ever owned (at least for 20 minutes), sadly. Its unfair such a masterpiece receives such a shameful treatment. Save the 15 bucks.

      Contains the 1987 mix, which the release makes not really clear (ok, copyright says 1987, but otherwise no indication). The 1987 mix is good, but if you're looking for the original, this release will disappoint you. Pressing quality is mediocre at best. Also the bonus tracks on cover are actually not on the record. Not recommended...
