    Before you comment on the quality of this pressing, do your homework on picture discs. It seems most of the newbies here have no idea they are for display purposes only. Pic discs will always sound like garbage.

      Snap! crackle! pop! This album is noisy as all hell. It looks nice but really bothers me. Compared to the 12” singles i have the mix otherwise sounds pretty faithful to the OG but everything is a bit lower.

        Wonderful looking album, but the master is noticeably low volume. Bummer pressing for such an epic album.

          I bought the new version from this year and the Matrix / Runout of side B is different ("RE" at the end). Maybe they fixed the problems? Should it be a new version on discogs?

            Picture disc style has pretty bad side effects. My pressing's play of "Twice Inna Lifetime" is looped by record damage about halfway through. Very unfortunate, I won't be buying picture discs again after this experience. Avoid this press if you can

              Overall sounds nice, but definitely side B is crackly and has some noise.

                Mine loops on Thieves in the Night. Otherwise, it plays great. Wasn’t expecting such a dynamic pressing, but it was. Definitely a good buy.

                  Definitely hisses and crackles on Side B. Volume is a lot lower on side B as well. Side A sounds fine.

                    Amazingly good album...but as for the pressing with the stars...mine had some lumps of shit on it that were kinda like dried super glue. Couldn't clean it off so it skips on a couple of joints.
                    4 stars for the album
                    1 star for the pressing .

                      I was very cautious about buying this pressing because it's a picture disc, but I'm pleasantly surprised with how it sounds! It's quite clear with some very minor crackling every so often. At the time of writing, these seem to be the only copies circulation so I would recommend.
