RE: Not always but

finding a normal production (not necessarily first pressing) that is in near mint condition will usually beat the new pressing hands down and it costs a lot less than the 180g rip offs. New pressings often sound dark and closed in comparison. But this is not always the case. Sometimes you will buy a new pressing that will sound fantastic. I always look for a good near mint first or second pressing. Unless it is a rare record, it costs less and sounds better to me than 180g new pressing.
