I finally got my copy, completely flat and it sounds outstandingly clear. No surface noise, no pops, cracks nor skips. The entire mixing is fantastic. The artwork and inner sleeve deserved a better treatment, but hell, this is grunge!!!!

Edit: As I always do, I took a couple of minutes to clean this vinyl up, it was pretty dirty.

High quality packaging though the artwork isn’t the best quality print, especially on the back. though my copy has consistent white noise throughout every song exept “All Apologies” the mastering itself is really great, it sounds super punchy and detailed and warm and a lot more aggressive and grungy than the digital version. I normally don’t say vinyl truly sounds different in a good way to it’s streaming release but I much prefer the way this pressing is mixed, everything feels more present than what we have on streaming. Almost feels like I’m seeing then live. Not the best vinyl pressing but the mastering is some of the best in my record collection, truly magnificent.

The whole album sounds different from my original CD, and not just the Litt single remixes. The whole thing is... (dare I say?) GRUNGIER. Vocals are deep in the mix, drums are at the fore, guitar is up and down, and bass is almost at Raw Power levels of "feel it more than hear it." Cobain's guitar and voice both distort when they go into the red, and yet quiet parts seem quieter.

Since the mix of the original release is all-Albini except for "Heart-Shaped Box" and "All Apologies," I guessing the rest of the difference is due to it not being the official master by Bob Ludwig, but the same beast as the 2003 UK and 2008 B2B releases. The matrix would seem to indicate that, but my ears do as well.

The digital download is the standard CD version. Seems identical when I A/B it with a rip of my old CD.

Eh on the pressing. Low quality. Could be much better.

Nirvanas best album with a nice reissue. Not seeing the distortion on the cover like people are saying...

I say ignore those equalizer settings if you have a powerful amp. Like no way was it needed on my luxman r-1030 through jbl lx55

Pick this up if you see one under $40, and even if you find one above $40, it’s probably the best you’ll have without paying a huge amount. The 320 matrix really sounds awesome, but you’ll have to clean the record before playing. HSB sounds like the original Steve Albini mix. I have an ORG press which has the Litt mix, the double tracked voice is obvious on the Litt mix while this 320 release has no double tracking in the vocal.

My copy has a bit of surface noise but it’s much better after a good clean. I think this copy sounds amazing, but one thing to note is the suggested equalizer settings for the bass and treble that it shows on the lyric sheet/sleeve. When you change your setup to match the suggested configurations it sounds immediately better. It brings out the vocals and the real rawness of the record.

No problems here. Low surface noise, no skips, etc. The liner says Litt versions of HSB and AA. Sounds like them to me.

This pressing uses the same stampers as Nirvana - In Utero and Nirvana - In Utero.

Much like the "320" pressing of Nirvana - Nevermind, this pressings is very dynamic but with slight surface noise, if not a little on the low volume side.

It comes in a cardboard sleeve, so expect to give it a good clean before playing (which is advised practice for new vinyl not in a polyline inner). I did get a skip from a build up of paper fibres, even after using the Spin Clean. Best give it at least two manual washes or use an automatized cleaner.

The artwork isn't as detailed as the original 1993 vinyl. Detail is lost and the rear cover has been zoomed in and cropped (one can assume they didn't have access to the original artwork, scanned a '93 cover and cropped out the barcode and old copyright details).

I can confirm that this version DOES use the 1993 Steve Albini mixes of "Heart-Shaped Box" and "All Apologies" the record company originally rejected in favour of Scott Litt's later remix
