Thank you for the reply. I’m glad to hear that it sounds good and may be worth the investment. Did you get the original 2001 release or the 2012 reissue?

Excellent pressing. I’m happy to see this much care being taken with a first time vinyl release of an older album. Same with the rest of the recent Cardigans vinyl releases. The sound quality is excellent and the artwork on the gatefold jacket looks... See full review

Nicely done all around. Very good sound quality with hardly any surface noise and no IGD. The vinyl is definitely “clear as heck”. The LPs look good and come in nice lined sleeves, but both LPs have extremely rough edges that detract from the... See full review

Generally good, but unfortunately, not great. The sound quality starts out pretty close to excellent on each side, but gradually degrades a little toward the centers. There was just enough IGD to be llldistracting. There was no background noise, but... See full review

Nice little release. This appears to be the first time that this soundtrack/score has been on vinyl and I think they did a very good job with it. The sound quality is surprisingly good and the presentation is very nice. The artwork on the gatefold... See full review

Good sounding pressing with a cool looking and unique gold color. Nice mix of songs from heavy to soft, which Filter has always been good at. Definitely recommended.

Terrific presentation. Nice box with two heavy duty gatefold jackets to hold all 4 LPs. The LPs are all well pressed and stayed clean in their poly sleeves. The sound quality is very good with just a slight degradation in quality toward the center of... See full review

Fantastic sound quality. No background noise. Really comes alive with every well mixed track. Beautiful gatefold jacket and printed sleeve. My only complaint is lots of paper specks stuck in the grooves that I had to scrub out before playing. Otherwise great. See full review

Nice quiet pressing with no major issues. Rich full sound, although a few songs could use a little more treble and a couple of songs have a touch of sibilance, but nothing major. This album has a stripped down demo sound to it, so it is tough to tell... See full review

A beautiful album and a terrific pressing. MOV did another fine job with this one. The album art does look crappy, but there is quality where it counts and I’m happy for that. Grab this one before it’s out of print. I regret not picking up a copy of... See full review

I truly wish that I could have been able to give this one a perfect score. The presentation is great with a nice gatefold jacket and sweet looking splatter vinyl. And the songs are all masterfully written and performed. But, my god, the sound quality... See full review

Excellent quality pressing all around. Nicely mastered and pressed. Good quality gatefold jacket and lined sleeves. Some songs could use a little more presence to brighten them up, but this could just be by design in the original recordings.

This one is a rare miss by MOV. Both sides of the single LP start off strong and sound excellent until about 3/4 of the way through when some unpleasant IGD distorts the last few songs on each side. Also, the entire way through the record, digital... See full review

Nice little release with a handful of great live performances. Well pressed and sounds good. I have yet to listen to the extra songs in the download, but I’m sure those are good too. You can’t go wrong 7, 10, or 12 inches of Ben.

Nice reissue of a classic album. Well pressed and clean. Very good sound quality with plenty of bass in spite of being crammed onto one LP. It is a little quiet and has some constant background noise, but it is not audible during the music.

No complaints. The sound quality of this reissue is plenty good enough for a casual listen of this eclectic collection of songs. The jacket and pressing quality are above average for a cheaply priced reissue.

I’m sorry to say that this pressing is a great disappointment. For such a terrific album to be pressed on vinyl for the first time ever with such a lack of care is a travesty. The cheap non-gatefold sleeve and crappy, blurry, banged up center labels... See full review

Any opinion on the sound quality? It is such an expensive album on vinyl that I would hope that it at least sounds good.
