    This sounds good! Not the very best of my collection, but the instrumentation has more depth than the digital, and the album is just mixed so well that it really comes to life! Would recommend! And give it a good cleaning. The vinyl itself is a tad flimsy and was dusty and it hadn’t even been opened before!
