        I think this release sounds pretty good all things considered.

          Look at that wack ass cover rip-off. Horrible.

            Listening to it now and seems fine throughout. The opening to Brown Skin Lady was a little distorted, but I'm on Thieves In The Night now and its not sounding so hot. Its not horrible, but I would probably stay away from this release.

              Both of mine are clear vinyl, too. I also have a lot of ticks throughout the album, but no distortion. Sound quality sounds mp3-ish so I'm not really all that impressed with this release.

                  Anyone else here have an issue with noise on side B? It is most noticeable during "Brown Skin Lady" and "Respiration" (unfortunate, since that's probably my favorite track on the album). The beat is fine throughout, but the vocal tracks seem to get pretty unbearably distorted...
