    This is a good album. It’s a week since I listened so I can’t be too specific, but the quad mix is better than usual for QS and had some great tracks. Musically interesting but some tracks better than others. The LP rip is excellent, there were a couple of places where noise intruded but otherwise this is as good as LP gets.

    This is by far the best version I’ve heard yet of the quad version of this album. The mix leaves a lot to be desired but when it’s good it’s awesome (I’m hearing instruments in Bodhisattva I never realised were there). And this is such a wonderful album. Thank you OD, another magnificent reissue!

    Pearl of the Quarter still sucks (what were they thinking?), but this is a nice improvement over the 2 other versions I have. What I really want is for Scheiner or Wilson to give this the proper 5.1 (or even 4.0) treatment. This album deserves it. A writer for Paste Magazine called this the best Steely Dan album recently. It has always been my favorite.

    Curious how this compares to DS253f.

    Do you know if the mix matches the Q8’s? Either way I’m…betting the source is superior.

      Not heard the Q8’s, but i’d imagine it would… unless you know other wise

    I’ll feel like the king of the world when I hit “play” on this one!
    Thank you!
