Good to know. I will have to hunt that one down also.

It's kinda good and powerfull (maybe much bass but not distant in any way). Anyway the reissue is easy to find on Amazon and cheap at the moment.

Fates Warning – The Spectre Within on Metal Blade 2012
Terribly dull sound, no highs (especially on the solos) whatsoever, everything seems to be cut off. Pressing is a joke, dozens of non-fill defects but blue-sprinkle-on-my-ass-vinyl. It does not end there. The gatefold is damn cheap, the ''liner notes'' just some fanboy babble, the bandphoto on the backcover is badly photoshopped with half of the heads cut off...
Well, seems the average Roadrunner 80s pressing will have to do it for now.

Maybe it was intended as a compilation, but why the hell did they include all the tracks from the album except one, and mix up the tracklist with songs from the later EP's?!
