Overall a fine pressing; not hearing the issues others are. Playing off vpi Scout w/ DV cart.
I'm no audiophile, but mine sounds fine. Three more words.
My pressing of this sounded like it was underwater. Stay away from this “reissue”. I’ll make do with my CD until someone does this beautiful record justice.
My pressing sounds like garbage. Stay away from 4 Men...
Strange, not that I am any advocate of this label, but my pressing is totally fine, and infact sounds pretty good. For those not willing to shell out for an OG, might be worth the risk if you love the record.
Did the same. Promised myself years ago i would never buy again from the digital to analog warpy records hipster masters... but gosh, how to get that record otherwise?
The pressing is poor, sound is poor... but even better: side 1 was misprinted on mine and is unplayable!!! (Never had that before and i bought thousands of new lps...) 25e for that?! Ever heard of a Test Press, guys??
4 clowns with half an ear...

This is very sad because this record is an absolute masterpiece...
I finally bit the bullet and picked up this reissue from the notorious, digital to analogue shysters 4 Men With Beards. The pressing is indeed pretty poor. Lots of surface and recorded hissing. This lyrical tour de force is crying out for some quality remastering treatment.
