I dont have previous pressings, but wasn't that also a complaint about the other pressings too?

the original pressing is still the best sounding. the 2012 2LP from hot topic sounds horrible. I think the new pressing is an improvement from the 2LP but this one just sounds flat and dull.

well, this pressing sounds pretty bad. pressing quality is fine, but sounds like it's just the cd/mp3 masters. not surprising. 

Yeah, this thing sounds like early 2000s MP3s slapped onto vinyl. I went from listening to a film score to this and the quality was so different and I had to mess with all my settings just to get it to sound decent. Glad to finally own it, but not exactly happy that it sounds like butt

That’s shitty to hear especially since the description says ‘Reissued here in remastered audio’ 🙄

Yea the biggest of buzzwords in the vinyl industry today that mean little to nothing.  I think half the time they just thrown that on any reissue to make people buy it again and think it is going to sound better.

This is currently on sale for 20.99 with free US shipping. 

Of course it is, since I finally caved and ordered last week.  It never popped up anywhere else and it wasn't eligible for site promo codes, so I expected it to be excluded from any BF sales.  I saw both Something Corporate records sold out, and decided it wasn't worth risking and waiting any longer for another retailer to stock it.

Listen, I hate lazy compressed vinyl mastering with everything I've got, but being remastered isn't mutually exclusive with sounding terrible. Most of the time I try to go for the original masters these days since so many modern remasters just sprinkle Jack Shirley dust all over the mix until there aren't any dynamics left.
