I had to exchange this a couple times before I got a record with a manageable amount of warp. It’s very loud, to the point where you can hear some portions clip. Disappointing to say the least. The 2017 black vinyl sounds excellent.
The green looks cool though.

Although it states it is 'traditional', Hark The Herald Angels was actually written by Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy. The words are over 100 years older.

Mastered very loudly by someone with an ear for other styles (I'm guessing?). Good at any time of the year, there's some real gems on this album.

A truly exceptional Christmas album. Just magical! On this particular pressing, it sounds pretty good, though I found it to be mastered very loudly. I have to turn the volume down about 10 increments from where I normally play vinyl. Still, it looks beautiful and makes the holidays all warm!

Generally a quiet pressing, but very harsh on the high end - sounds to my ears as if it's been over-compressed,,,or over-enthusiastically digitally remastered
