  1. Quite a terrible pressing. My first copy was very noisy and warped but the second copy faired better. No warps and it actually is a quieter one than their self-titled 2017 EU Cigarettes After Sex original release! However, there’s nothing to be excited about as Paul Gold’s mastering sounded very muddy on this reissue, the echoes and reverbs sounded too tubby. Not surprising after I read that the EP was recorded in a four-story stairway at his alma mater, University of Texas at El Paso.

    I am still desperately trying to get hold of one of the 45 rpm releases.. Perhaps that would sound better but I highly doubt it.
