    Sound is just plain muddy. Was worried that my cartridge had reached the end of its life or that I messed up the VTA or settings on my phono. Glad to see that others experienced the same issue and its not my system...though not happy that they put out such a bad pressing.

      I don’t have many of the distortion issues others mentioned, but I will say the sound is a bit muffled/ poorly mastered. My copy is mostly dead quiet though which is good, but it certainly doesn’t sound near as good as this album is capable of sounding. Not the worst press I’ve owned, but a little disappointing to be sure.

        The music is the best, but the press is terrible.

          I hope the record label works on a new master cut for this very nice album. It is a shame. As other have described, there are songs that have heavy distortion that I found more noticeable in high freqs.

              There needs to be a reissue of this album pressed at QRP or RTI... the digital version sounds fantastic but the current issue has more distortion and sibilance than almost any record I own. The right channel hi frequencies are extremely distorted throughout the entire record. This is one of my favorite records and deserves a better treatment. Saddle Creek, perhaps a 10 year anniversary double 45 RPM audiophile pressing reissue? Or just use a plant with quality control .

                What a god awful pressing. High end distortion to no end, and quite muddy as well.
