  1. Both this 1999 US original release and the 2014 EU Reissue of Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy’s debut album — I See A Darkness sounded excellent. It is hard to tell them apart without critical listening. Both are beautifully mastered and well pressed. Noise floor is also similar. If I need to pick one only, I would choose the 2014 EU Reissue for just a slightly better pressing with gives just a slightly better defined sound and slightly quieter.
