    I'm relieved to report that despite the reviews below I went ahead and bought this lp and it is fine - a tiny bit of non-fill at the beginning of side 2 that is quite listenable, silent otherwise. I do miss a bit the dark and murky atmosphere of the original but this one is clearer and the bassline is much easier to follow. The anthemic chiming guitar at the end has never sounded as triumphant. All in all, one of the very rare worthwhile reissues, most of which is thanks to the fantastic tube equipment and mastering chops of the estimable Bernie Grundman in my opinion. So it is back to anthropocentrism city for me and the Pink Floyd and I'm wondering just how much Orwell they read in the 70s?

      I have a UK pressing with HMT etched on the dead wax and see that it says it's similar to this pressing but wanted anyone's second opinion?
      Thank you!

        I played a brand new copy tonight and the sound is very good as has been reported. There are a few pressing glitches though. The first tracks on Sides 1 and 2 have crackling noise, light though. There is a series of continuous clicks on the track ‘Sheep’ on Side 2 which is unacceptable. I’m just guessing here, but could this be due to a damaged stamper? It is remarkable how consistent the reports of pressing defects are. So much effort went into the packaging on this release that it defies logic that the record is packed in a horrible unlined sleeve?? There are marks on the surface as well which could be from the cheap and nasty inner sleeve or maybe the stamper? Interesting too how Analog Planet reported pretty much the same issues in its review. Pending a repress, I will probably buy the SACD version. It is a Warner release and that bodes well for a repress if purchasers voice their disappointment with the pressing quality to Warner. By the way, my copy had been wet cleaned and rinsed on a VPI RCM before being ultrasonically cleaned on my Klaudio unit, before playing.

          2nd remix copy arrived yesterday...as bad or worse than the first one. Gonna try one more time...

            He comprado la edición europea. Lamento decir que es un prensado muy deficiente, realmente parece que estás escuchando un disco ya usado muchas veces, además, no es plano.
            Respecto al sonido, encuentro este remix más velado que el vinilo original UK y con menos dinámica. Sinceramente, no creo que aporte nada o mejore nada respecto al original.

              Just picked this up, FINALLY found a decent copy for less than a mortgage payment! Easily VG+/EXC both cover and vinyl, already cleaned and MOFI inner swapped, can't wait to test play and compare to my other 2 copies, especially the 2016 reissue which I'm quite happy with! This one, if plays and sounds well, I'll consider to be a grail in the collection. This is variant 6 according to Discogs, A2U/B3U.
              UPDATE: critical test played, agree with general concensus on here and elsewhere, if you can find a pressing in good shape then this is the one to have. Clear and punchy, great, deep bass but not overly boomy! All instruments and vocals shine with little sonic competition between them. Moosey likee veree muchee!

                      Very glad to acquire a Near Mint Copy of this. I’ve had the 1st U.S Press and a Later U.S reissue with the barcode for years. The first U.S Pressing while very balanced, lacks the punchy bass that the U.K pressing has. This is definitely the one to own.
