I don't know about other versions of this LP, but this European one is pretty bad. I just got one and it seems to be suffering from too many tracks with too fine grooves, especially on side one. Plays with a lack of clarity and skips occasionally only to self recover and play through. This came out when vinyl was dying and if the pressing quality here is any indication of the quality of the time period, then it needed to die and be reborn. Time for a proper 180g+ rerelease. This album especially has a lot of long quiet sections and requires a good clean pressing.
