    This is how a repress should sound, it's absolutely perfect. Not able to find a single flaw

      Does anybody know if there are unofficial versions of this? I went to a store the other day and saw a copy with a different yellow sticker on the cover. The text reads:

      AUDIOPHILE
      180G VINYL
      Newly Remastered from
      Original Analog Tapes
      00602547924469

      The sticker doesn't mention the download card at all. I didn't buy it cause I wasn't sure it's the real thing.

      The sticker looks like the one on this: https://www.hhv.de/shop/en/item/soundgarden-down-on-the-upside-493244

      Any idea?

        Sounds fantastic - I confirm! And all the extras in the gatefold made me even more happy.

          The print quality of the envelopes is good. There are also leaflets with information. Vinyls are in paper envelopes with cellophane inside. Everything is good in this part.
          But the sound is a little muddy. The tools stick together. The vocals are heard well. It's still better than the popular streaming sites. But all my AIC from MOV sounds much cleaner. I recently bought a new reissue of the first Pearl Jam album. Its better too.

            My two cents worth: After listening to a 1996 Euro original that I own and this version I'd say this is the better sounding. Don't get me wrong the original sounds great, just this one is a bit more dynamic, Bob Ludwig has done a good job here. 1996 Original - 8/10, 2016 Remaster - 9/10.

              Have the original cd since 96 and I must say this vinyl reissue sounds a bit better to my ears. No great difference anyway, just some improvement in sound depth. Very quiet too.

              I have read on the internet that this pressing beats the first 96 clear pressing, which apparently came also from a digital source. Unfortunately can't compare.

                Fantastic pressing. Just received from the UK and on side 3 and I am impressed.
                Great sound, flat, nice sonic dimensions.

                  Having heard the original I think this master is not as good it's to bright in all the wrong places and dosnt have the same low punch sounds very mid high, could have taken a little better care tbh.

                      After "Louder..." I gave a spin to this one as well. The mastering, pressing and vinyl quality are all ace. Sounds fantastic, better than the original, which I own. I only wish that Universal had reproduced the original printed inner sleeves...
