This is one is cheap and is worth 10 dollars for sure. However, don´t kid yourselves, it is coming direct from CD or from some inferior source. You can clearly hear an unavoidable hiss at the end of songs and at the start of others. "Life´s a gas"... See full review

Good pressing. Quiet vinyl and punchy sound. However, there is no inner sleeve! The quality of the cover production is terrible. Some new re-isues have serious probIems with the reproduction quality of the cover art. This is an incredibly blurry and... See full review

Sides one & two are perfect. Sides 3 & 4 have some pops. (Comment below mentions same problem). In any case, not a serious problem, and on the whole, on sides 3 & 4 there are only one or two clicks heard only when music is quiet. Doesn´t disrupt the... See full review

Just bought Michigan by Sufjan Stevens "3 times" and had to send each copy back. Absolutely TERRIBLE pressing. Dirty, smudged, at times scratched. Pop, crackle, hiss, click. Really terrible quality control form this pressing plant.

One word, TERRIBLE! Sufjan Stevens has great music but the vinyl LPs that his record company issues are consistently the worst you will buy. I have now bought my 3rd vinyl copy of Michigan. All rotten. Crackle, click, pop. Vinyl DOES NOT need to sound... See full review

Seems this is the pressing plant that made Violator by Depeche Mode. One of the best quality pressings I have bought. Dead silent, not one single click or crackle on the whole album. Wish all records could be made this well.

Comparing this to original UK Fly edition. Good thing is, it sounds great. Bass very tight and defined. Bass drum punchy and cymbals bright. Backing vocals very clear. A criticism is that it is not as “cohesive” as the original UK pressing. Overall,... See full review

No stress. This will be manufactured in bulk... I have the 2018 issue, and at that time there were not so many websites offering it. I got it directly from the MBV store. This time there are loads of stores selling it. Sold out today, but they will be... See full review

One of the best reissues out there. The original album sounds stunning. Really clean and dynamic. Two additional albums with it!! Absolutely NOT a ripoff. I think my cost about 23 euros. Great job. Highly recommended.

I bought it in advance directly from the MBV website and it was shipped from the UK to Germany on the day of release. I am pretty sure it was 17 euros (or maybe 17 pounds, certainly not much more). Shipping charges were about 4 euros extra. It sounds... See full review

Nice pressing. Well worth the purchase. The vinyl is not 100% silent. In some quieter parts maybe there is a bit of background noise, but it shouldn´t be enough to disturb. I send back any new vinyl that isn´t perfect or close to perfect. This album I... See full review

This 2020 reissue sounds great. Pick it up if you can. You won´t regret it. Very clean vinyl. Dynamic sound. Really good pressing. It is the same as the issue in the 2018 box set but sold individually in 2020.

I think the 2020 reissues come from the 2018 box sets. So, they are a continuation of the 2018 box sets but released individually in 2020. They sound great in any case.

Great pressing. Clean vinyl. Dynamic sound. A definite buy. Got mine for 16 euro. It is worth a lot more. Have 3 of these "we are vinyl" Clash pressings. They did a great job re-pressing them.

This version sounds great. Don´t hesitate to buy it. It is a really clear pressing, and of course it is a double album. For the price, I picked it up for 21 euro, it can´t be beaten.
