Apologies, but did nobody of those 1000 members owning this record make its efforts to include the matrix runouts of this release? Just bought a sealed copy at my record store (2021). Matrix numbers match the test pressing from 2020. However, the barcode matches the 2009 release. Can anyone owning definitely the 2009 issue add the matrix runouts? Doesn‘t make sense to add wrong matrix runouts, that‘s the reason I didn’t add or added a new release yet.

However, my record is flat as hell. No crackles or likes. Unfortunately the sound itself is a bit „muddled“. I have to raise the treble a bit. Other than that, sound is fine. Hope Schnitzel or whoever will offer a great sounding Vinyl box of the whole catalogue within the near future. That would be a no brainer.....

So...there seems to now be a 2021 pressing of this floating around. Sadly still on Plain. Anyone got one yet who's a serious Ween fan that can comment on the sound quality?? At this point I'm getting desperate and worried that Schnitzel or a proper label won't be reissuing/remastering the later records in the discography anytime soon unfortunately. I hope they prove me wrong though!

To echo, hit or miss. Some of this sounds ok, and some like crap, the gunk melded into the grooves that ruins the 2nd and 3rd tracks notwithstanding. The whole mix sounds muddy and low, compared to the cd. This is only for the completists I guess.

I really didn't want to pile on here as my Mollusk and 12GCG records sound good. Two outta three.

Seriously tho, these 3 records need to be emancipated from Plain, remastered, and repressed with at least some respect.

Picked up a new copy of this, knowing about Plain's reputation - but willing to take the risk. First thing I noticed was this record was so badly warped that the sight of my needle moving up and down was unsettling. It seriously sounded like there were trippy effects I never noticed before on CD or MP3. That, and the pops. This thing went back to the store for a credit slip before making it through the first song on each side. And going by my other Ween gamble on Plain records - this label is only worth using as a realtime teaching tool for anyone who needs to hear an example of what a lousy pressing sounds like. My record store credit got me two USED Floyd albums, which sound amazing - and really make me want to hear Ween on a real record label. Plain is nothing more than cheap junk for people who don't know better so they can say "Cool, look... I got _______ on vinyl!" And I am far from some audiophile snob. Most of my records come from other people's basements or the $3 bin - and they ALL sound better than Plain pressings. Currently listening to a scratched up 30 year old album that was used by a former party DJ then stored in a pile on his basement floor for many years. And sounds cleaner than the brand new Ween on Plain that I just listened to. Sorry to say, this label sucks. The only positive thing I can say is that they make it obvious that there is actually a record inside the jacket - brand new and there was already ring damage. Can't even get the packaging right. It's almost like I sat down at my dining room table with a laptop and a bottle of wine and thought "I bet I can be a real good record label..."

From what I've read, Plain pressings seem to be hit & miss, so I was a bit hesitant to buy this album. However, I'm REALLY glad I did because it sounds INCREDIBLE! So, if you're on the fence with this one, take a shot because I'm pretty sure you'll be pleased, like I was. My particular copy is perfect, with no flaws whatsoever.

My copy sounds good, except for some nasty gunk stuck in the grooves (or possibly damage) in the middle of the excellent first track. VPI cleaned, but still present. Not thrilled. Plain is so hit and miss.

Considering it's a Plain Recordings pressing it's quite excellent. Presssing is relatively quiet and the sound is nice and dynamic, with a sort of smooth "vintage" EQ (bass not as boomy as many modern records). Got this sealed from a shop and was relieved to find it's an early black vinyl pressing of this issue, I can't imagine colored vinyl from worn stampers would sound better.
