Visual: MINT -
Outstanding 'factory-fresh' playing surfaces which retain all of their 'as new' deep-glossy shine and are unmarked in strong daylight. Closer inspection beneath halogen light reveals nothing more than a few faint inner-sleeve removal marks and a sparkling rainbow shine. No upgrade necessary.
Played once only with care on high-end equipment, the sound quality on this disc is as good as it gets. All tracks play flawlessly with no trace of any groove/playwear or even a single tick, click or other such distraction. Aside from a hint of normal vinyl background on the run-ins and quiet spoken intro to 'Exp', we think this is the finest sounding example of this pressing you will ever find.
Cover: EXCELLENT +
A vivid, vibrant & fully intact example bearing light storagewear rubbing to its high-gloss outer panels but no heavy creasing or spine bends. There is slight shelfwear to the lower corners and to a 3cm section of the non-opening edge as if someone has tried to open it. The real opening edge is in perfect condition. Both panels inside the gatefold are immaculate. The unworded spine is unworn and all seams are smooth & unstressed.
Lyric Insert: MINT -
Perfectly clean, flat & uncreased.
Inner-sleeve: MINT -
Slight age-toning to the paper only.
