Great sounding record. It sounds beautifully flat and loud. All though there is a crapton of sibilance during TTHHEE PPAARRTTYY. The record arrived dirty as hell, but that's to be expected. Music wise, a classic.
really good record. literally no surface noise as far as i could tell. had some really deep bass and sounds even better than the digital version. but.... side c and d are swapped around. stress is on side c when its post to be on side d. not a big issue, at least not enough for me to return it.
For those commenting on the high level of compression for the vinyl and digital releases of this album: that was done with intention. The J.U.S.T.I.C.E duo wanted to give the album a lofi grit, so they compressed the hell out of it.
MPO never lets you down and this is definitely no exception! Great pressing, flat as a coin, very dynamic, good separation L-R, powerful sound, loud, clear, crystal clear mids and nice top end, fat bass. Love this pressing with zero surface noice ??
