    Pulled this out for spin and I have got to say, I have got no complaints. The wax is flat, no noise click/tick/whirl, and it sounds damn good/dynamic.

      Presents on my system with a large, transparent soundstage, and super wide dynamic range. While I found the 2020 digital re a really lovely listen, this AAA pressing sounds warmer and the artists sound like they are in the room (the digital...more of a high end reproduction). My copy is flat, centered, and extremely quiet...bottomless noise floor...blown away every listen and look forward to affording a quality OG to compare (would love to see the dynamic ranges side by side).

        Great sound ** Clean and virtually noise free out of the sleeve and dead Flat. Came in a very nice protective sleeve in addition to the replicate inner sleeve. Really great quality from Optimal pressings recently.

        **I have no other previous reference except a vintage 1980's RCA "Changes One" which was very bright / edgy in comparison

          I don't understand.
          Pictures of the back cover & labels here state this is a digital remaster...
          Could it be a mistake from someone who owns the 2020 press and uploaded them on the wrong page? A mistake from the record label?

          Can someone with a copy with the same matrixes listed here look at the text at the bottom of the back cover and the labels and check if there is any mention of 'digital remaster' too?

          Thanks!

            Find a clean 1972 original. You won’t be sorry…no contest.

              Believe the hype. This thing slaps. One of the best sounding records in my collection.

                Please guys stay clear, nothing can beat an OG or an U.K 80's press obviously.
                On the other hand, if you are short on money, this press is a fantastic opportunity to get this gem album, it plays wonderfully on my system (Sansui 666+ jbl 36+ ortofon black cartridge)
                I've got 4 other press to compare, a lot higher in price, but this one is cheap/affordable.
                Sound quality isn't like 2000's digital shit, i mean even if not the best it's a really good deal.

                    Just bought this and someone sent me the 2020 version. All these seem sealed if anyone has a NM and can confirm the matrix # I would gladly buy it.

                      Beautiful album! Fantastic pressing. The audio quality is absolutely superb. It’s a great remaster.
