No problems with my disc or pressing. Very quiet & sounds as good as source allows. Thought it might be MPO press, but confirmed it is this pressing. No sign of MADE IN CZECH on shrink though. Purchased from local record shop (END OF AN EAR).

This anniversary issue isn’t bad. I had no problems with my disc. Plays dead quiet. No scratches, surface noise or paper debris. Sound isn’t mind blowing but the drums and bass really sound nice. Lots of punch. It doesn’t sound thin but does sound somewhat compressed at times, moreso in the vocals. Nice low end though. Pretty big sound. Can be played loud. Not horrible. Will do since I don’t have this album on vinyl yet. Not a bad version to grab for $25.

Seeing a lot of mixed reviews here. I have gotten some dodgy GZ pressings lately: dirty, jagged edges, and/or non-fill.
Could some of you be getting the MPO pressing instead and it sounds better? No one has reviewed that one yet.

First play was horrendous, crackles, distortion and hiss, was going to take it back. Cleaned it and now sounding all good

Just played mine that I got from Amazon. Vinyl is clean. Dig the color! Used roller to remove surface debris from paper sleeve and manufacturering. Cover and insert are good. Minus the edge warp that is only noticeable on Side 2 (DNAP), this pressing sounds good! Lots of punch and full sound! I'm happy with it!

General Gear Idea...

My copy sounds good. I have the cassette and digital to compare to but no other vinyl pressing. A little bit of surface noise but I didn’t wet clean it.

There is nothing wrong with this record. Clean your needle and balance your tone arm.

Another classic pressing from GZ. More words for no reason
