  1. Editors’ best album – The Back Room unfortunately sounded compressed and harsh on this reissue, pressed by GZ Media. I wonder if the original Jonz Loud’s cuts sound any better? There is also a newer 2018 reissue which I am very curious about its SQ… It’s not the worst record I have ever heard but I just wish the mastering was done better…
