    This is quite a quiet pressing, but once you turn it up it’s one of the best sounding albums. Strangely, the run-in grooves are much longer than any album I’ve seen, which also means that the run-out grooves are short. Luckily theres zero IGD to be heard!

      I have a mispress of the CD (7243-8464-2921) Unfortunately its Gobbie Williams 'sing when youre winning' cant imagine this bein worth much!

        The mastering on this (fantastic) album isn't great for the vinyl pressings... I bought a copy back in 2005 and the volume was *far* too low - especially the first track of each side... So I decided to go again - some 15 years later - and picked up a copy in 2020... The *exact* same issue... It says it was pressed at MPO... I don't think it's the pressing plant's fault for the low mastering? I'm astonished no one has addressed such an obvious issue...
