Really an improvement in pressing quality and sound. Still not perfect. The center holes of both discs aren't exactly in the center. This album would deserve the perfect treatment and being pressed in a high-standard pressing plant like Record-Industry ... See full review

The pressing is superb and far better the the European release from 1987. The sonopress pressing from back then was pain in a.... Optimal did a decent job on this one, however the vinyl housed in a rough cardboard inner sleeve is still a no go. You've ... See full review

plain white inner sleeves, missing lyrics and credits are a real downer. Hey, that's what makes a whole package. But this is cheap, it's a scam.

agree, they sell us a premium product, so they say, for real music lovers. But especially with optimal media pressings, you often have minor quality. Made in Germany Haha

Just received the box today. I'm wondering why the original inner sleeve with lyrics from "Close To The Edge is missing?

This is just a typical problem with Optimal media pressings. They're got a serious problem with their prodution quality. Dirt particles in sleeves, fingertips, decentered label. The whole range.
Two scratches on my copy right out of the sleeve for the ... See full review

My copy is nice as well. Not perfect though, but definitely not sub-standard. It comes frm MPO. Not the best pressing plant. Had problems with some MPO pressings as well.
