I've known this album since it came out and was lucky to see the album live on the original tour, and also the anniversary tour in the O2. This is in my top 5 albums of all time, and the 2013 pressing is absolutely killer. Del Naja's production is nothing short of genius and the vinyl pressing does it justive 100%. The bass is incredibly low, the atmospheric samples and instruments pop through the sound stage clearly, and even the scratchy samples seem to hang in the air with space around them. A flawless masterpiece. Played on a Rega RP10 / Aptheta II.

Well made, bassy and punched sound, completely enjoyable and great sounding pressing, my favourite massive attack album

My copy was bought in the US, and has a “made in Germany” sticker on the back. Catalog #’s match this release. I was happy with how it sounded overall. Quiet, flat discs

How can one tell the difference between this repress and the 2013 repress?
The jacket, inners and runouts appear to be identical in most ways

Do you guys have a misprint on the paper print of the vinyl? It sais side D on both sides C and D

4+ reissue. Sound is brilliant, high level mastering. But the mass is little bit noisy.

Even though the second record has a scratch that makes pops on the first 6 seconds of Side C also the record has three to four clicks all throughout... It sounds phenomenal, jaw-dropping dynamic audio all around this LP! I think this is their most superior pressing of "Mezzanine".

Wow factor of 💯. If you want to test your sound system - especially the lower frequencies, then this is your test record.

Fantastic. Proper amount of bass but gorgeous detail at the same time.

My copy had a sticker "made in germany" on the back. It has some slight differences in the etched runout. I'm not sure if this is it. But it sounds really good.
