Any one else notice the volume drop midway through Only in Dreams?

Not sure if it's because my copy is above the 30k mark but I am not very impressed at all... The top end is particular underwhelming (cymbal crashes sound like static)... A fair amount of surface noise but not enough to really distract. However, my pressing does have a nasty skip during the build-up to the climax in "Holiday". Overall, sounds kind of dull on top of the other issues. Bummer.

Mobile Fidelity Sound lab killed this one as they pretty much always do. Mind you I purchased this album quite a few years ago when this version was first released. I would have to say out of my entire record collection, that even though this is not my favorite album (it's one of them), that it is most certainly one of the, if not the best sounding album in my collection, and I buy a lot of vinyl reprints.

Just wanted to add that there aren't any real problems with volume on my new copy. Certainly not the loudest LP I've heard, but no cause for complaint.

I got 29,517; must be a high print run...anyway this sounds fantastic. I've owned about 5 different copies of this album since it was released when I was a teenager. Hope it'll be the last copy too.

Just bought a copy, #029565. At least it's under 30k haha. Very satisfied with my purchase, the price I paid was very reasonable too.

First of all, like someone else here mentioned, the volume/output is WAAAY too low and sounds way too tame. Even after cranking the volume, it's still barely sufficient IMO. Sonically, there are definitely things I do like, I think overall, they did a fantastic job on the mastering, etc.. very full, nice low end, decent separation, acoustic guitars sound stellar, just enough clarity, although, it could stand to be a tad more generous on the top end which would've helped give it a more open sound but all in all, it sounds great, very natural for the most part, not amazing but really good.

As far as surface noise, my copy unfortunately has some minor ticking/popping throughout which for the most part is cancelled out by the music, but in the quieter passages i.e. "Say It Isn't So" and in between songs, it's very present(ugh) again, not horrendously noisy but for a pressing that supposed to be "audiophile" quality and for the money I spent, I'd expect that to NOT exist at all like most of my Music Matters pressings. But again, I suppose I can live with it since I don't hear it at all times.

And yes, like it's been mentioned, the best thing about the pressing is indeed the packaging. The cover itself is top notch and super sturdy as usual. I've never had an OG pressing so I can't compare it to this one, but looking really closely at the image on the cover, it doesn't look as sharp and clear as it should be, but again, I don't know if the OG press is the same. I just know that most reissues these days really fall short when it comes to the artwork being blurry and the colors being off. But having said that, I've definitely seen a lot worse. All in all and for the money I spent, it's not bad and for the most part, it's an enjoyable listen but could definitely be better IMO. I feel that MOFI in my experience, has always and continues to be kind of hit and miss but when you find the right one, it will be worth the money you spend. For now, I'll probably keep this one but seek out an OG UK press for the superior listening experience based off of what I've heard about those pressings but again, I think for a lot of people, this MOFI pressing will most likely suffice.

Quick question: does it say "Original Master Recording" on the shrink wrap or on the actual cover art? Thanks in advance!

#27012, not quite a "limited edition", however it sounds Amazing. Warm tones, thick bass, and those nerdy themes. It's F'n brilliant and I love the packaging.
