This is a super clean Original German Fiction Records pressing. The sound is very good -- clean, clear, and punchy -- and the vinyl plays very quietly. I've had a pretty hard time finding great sound for The Cure's albums over the years but thought this one was pretty darn impressive.
Allmusic: "From short instrumental pieces to robotic pop, Seventeent Seconds is where The Cure shed all the outside input and became their own band."
Vinyl: EX (super close to Near Mint)
Cover: VG (Tiny creases and some slight tearing on the front. Still looks great, see pics)
Play notes: Great sound and very quiet vinyl
We prefer to overdeliver and therefore grade conservatively. Our scale runs Near Mint (NM), Excellent (EX), Very Good Plus (VG+), Very Good (VG), Good Plus (G+), Good (G).
