    This far better and clearer than the MOP release by the Blackened mob. Haven’t listened to the original but it’s better than any CD copy or digital release I’ve heard.

      I’m not sure what you’re all hearing as opposed to myself. This pressing lacks dynamics massively. I’ve played it loud, I’ve played it quiet, I’ve played it a bunch. There’s no punch in the bass, nothing cuts through anything. It’s all just there. I’ve got a technics 1200mk2, shure m97xe through a luxman amp. It’s not throwing the sound like I’d expect such a ‘great’ pressing to do

        Great sounding no complaints! Some of the best metal songs of all time

          I have the OG UK version which blows this one out of the water. I bought this first and it sounded flat. which is not what I remembered back in the day when I had this album. So I invested in a original release which cost me about $40 a couple of years ago and it was well worth it.

            this sounds really good way more vibrant and living then the mop remaster i wanted an original but this sounds great

              I have a defective copy unfortunately, there's a MASSIVE electrostatic on the left channel for the entirety of side A, and on side B just as Call of Ktulu comes on. For the parts that do not have this issue, it just sounds pretty medicre. Can't really recommend this one, but i might get that Walmart Electric Blue edition to see if it sounds any different.

                Good pressing. No pops/clicks, quiet background between tracks. Flat, centered. I recommend this.

                  Sounds awesome :) Got a bit confused at the beginning, though, but it turns out my copy has the side one label on both sides :)

                    I have the original Megaforce pressing and I have to say this remastered reissue is as close as you are going to get to it. You will also save a lot of money. I did a side by side comparison and the difference is so slight, it’s a really good, flat, dead quiet copy. I didn’t hear much “remastering”, maybe a little more separation of the guitars. What I don’t like is the graphics are terrible on the cover, it really looks like instead of locating the original files, they just scanned an already printed copy as the highlights are blown out and the shadows are gone. Sad. But the music quality of the pressing has much improved over all the rest of those awful Warner pressings and I guess that’s the important part. Rock on.

                      20 bucks for a great sounding record! What a steal! Amazing album all the way through, couldn’t recommend this pressing more for the price.
