Side B sounds a LOT better than Side A, it’s honestly shocking how much better it is. Otherwise, this isn’t too bad. Side A suffers a bit especially during Mothers Talk, but the rest sounds great

Aside from some dust (which was easily cleaned off) good, flat pressing with excellent sound. Current pressings have no download code anymore.

Just purchased and sounds excellent, good dynamic range and doesn't sound compressed or brickwalled at all

Utter dogshit pressing, some clown filtered out all the bass. What a waste of time and resources.

Dish warped.

Another sub-optimal pressing from Optimal.

Will try a replcement and then give up.

No way am i going thru 4 copies the way i did for all their non-filled write off 2021 versions of Jimmy Smiths Chicken Shack.

Sort it Optimal!!!!

Great mastering and pressing - crisp and clean. My copy is slightly warped but not noticeable to impact playback. I used to own a flimsy copy of this from the 80s - this is some improvement to put it mildly!

This 2014 remaster of one of Tears for Fears' best albums from 1985 sounded vibrant to my ears. I didn't encounter any surface noise or major scuffs on the record, the LP plays fine without any issues. Highly recommended for the modern day vinyl collector!

I've seen several sources around the Internet claiming this to be the Steven Wilson remix from 2014 - There's nothing indicating that in packaging or on the label. Can anyone verify? I think it's likely, as I doubt Universal paid for two separate remix/remasters in the same year of the same album, but I just don't have any evidence.
