    While I have no other versions to compare it to, my copy is clean and flat. The playback has no noticeable pops or noise. The sound stage and dynamics are great. Technics 1200/AT VM540ML/Mani 2.

      Very poor pressing, It sounds quite distorted and the sibilance is noticeable.

        I have a VG original pressing of this and this re-release. Though haven't compared them side by side (in different countries - hate moving vinyl) this re-release sounds bloody fantastic too. You won't be disappointed.

          It's sourced from a digital master. This and unknown pleasures since 2007 at the very least. Let's face it, would the original master tapes even exist at this point? Probably not. I have an original pressing and it's nothing like this. The original is not as dynamic and loud as this. Mind you from that time none were like the sound we get now.

            Excelent sounding record! Great quality and dynamic pressing. Totally recommended.

              Absolutely fantastic sound. May have been sourced from a digital master, but that isn't a big deal as this is a very full release. Super dynamic soundscape present, which is great for the all-encompassing nihilism present in this album

                No issues with my copy. Quality of sound is good very little humming or popping at all. Cover and sleeve are both good quality and in good shape when purchased. Overall happy with this one.

                  My copy runs very smooth. I like this well sized inner sleeve but I hate not knowing wich side I will listen to. It´s not mentioned on label and I´m not willing to put on glasses and a spotlight to read the damn runout.

                    Can someone tell me what version should I get? The 2007 Rhino release, this one or the new 40th anniversary? I'd rather not get the last one since it is clear (I'm a black vinyl kind of guy) but if it's the best than I'd rather have the best.
                    Thanks!

                      No issues with my copy of this. No skips and it's mostly quiet. Dynamics are good. No complaints.
