I mean wow. Like wow. Just listened to this record for the first time and was not expecting the clarity and mixing of this album/pressing. This was my first time listening to Suzanne and the mixing itself sold me. Bravo Shelly Yakus at A&M for the mixing and bravo Stephen Marcussen at Precision Lacquers L.A. for the Direct Metal Master for this press. (Names were found on the inner sleeve credit text.)

Mine is a translucent brown vinyl, like my copy of Suzanne's S/T. It sounds phenomenal. Superb music too. Crystal clear vocals, lots of punch, and a really nice depth and clarity. Great dynamics too. I concur with everyone else on here- this really is an audiophile press.

Sounds exciting. This is a true audiophile recording and press. Fantastic songs although.

This is my go-to album to test my equipment. If i change out my stylus or move my speakers around or get a new receiver/amp, whatever, I put this on. The quality of the vinyl is nearly flawless and the recording is amazing. Very clear vocals with no backing instruments on Tom's Diner followed a very dynamic full band and even an instrumental at the end. My copy even has a tiny flaw that will let me no if my anti-skate is out of wack because it'll skip. The song writing is genius and, I'll admit, heart-breaking at times. I love this album for so my reasons!
