    Absolutely nothing wrong with the Rhino Records pressings. I have the 2009 vinyl pressing and it sounds fantastic on my set up, and I also own an original pressing from 1982 to compare it with.

    I think people just want to complain about everything anymore.

      There are Samhain "unholy passion" 12" boots circulating who are mispressed, and contains the "walk among us" tracks in more or less bad quality. My copy is on orange translucent (but there are more: see "unholy passion" page) and looks very much like this:
      also the matrix/runout is same, the jacket is semi-gloss.
      Not sure if i need this - actually played it once: if someone is interested just drop me a line.

        I have the very original 1988 pressing of the CD. It sounds quite bad to my ears. Puny, especially the guitars. Can anyone tell me if the 90s/2000s CDs have a better sound to them?

          I just received a Clear Turquoise or Blue Vinyl version with the yellow Ruby Records labels but can't find it here. Did I miss the entry?

            The creature in the Background is from the movie: The Angry Red Planet (1959).

              Well I placed an order for the Earache 2018 reissue hoping it'll sound nice on my system. I am a little sceptacle about how it will sound after doing some digging. I always found the album to be the best produced Misfits album, however it always lacked full clarity and punch, the volume has always been a little off and I fear this may still be an issue with the coming reissue. After checking various misfits discographies, it seems the album was originally mastered in 1982 for the three or four times it was originally pressed in 1982. By 1988, CD had come along, so it was time for a reissue and with the reissue another mastering (one of the Misfit sites seems to confirm this with acetates cut by Bernie Grundman Mastering in the summer of '88) for CD. This would be the master being used for the Earache pressing. Earache has images of one of the tape boxes on their site, the label reads Bernie Grundman Mastering 7/29/88. It states it is not an original master (a remaster for CD?) but includes Dolby noise reduction (could this be why the volume takes a hit) "equalization, limiting, etc. used in disc production". The generation notes on the box confirm it is not an "original master" nor a "1:1 master". I know there are many things that can effect the final product from tape to vinyl, but I have a feeling this still won't be the true reissue of the original album some (myself) are hoping for. We shall see. I guess I'll be the Guinea Pig.

                I honestly cannot stand misprints on albums and there are a lot on this album
