how is the sound quality??? is it remastered how is it pressed?
IMO it's a good sounding reissue. The guitars are kinda thin ,but the rhythms and vocals really come through. Considering most of us will NEVER hear an original (and I'm gonna assume the master tapes are long gone or not in good shape) You gotta take what you can get. Stunning album regardless.
sounds a little more futzed with than the 2012 reissue
Unlike the 2012 reissue this release doesn't say remastered on it (or anything sound restoration), but it sounds good to my ears. Pressing seems fine, I've got a pretty good turntable (Thorens TD 321). But I've got nothing to compare it against and the actual recording is comparitively lo-fi and not the best use of stereo (a lot of the guitar comes out of one channel).
