I recorded myself a series of videos from the PS1 one:

I believe they have all scenes and moments from the game. If you skip to 5 minutes from this video, taken from the PS1 version:

The first thing you’ll notice about the backgrounds is that they look polished. Maybe it was some sort of filter applied to epSXE while playing, yet definitely the scenarios looks better than what we see in the PC. On the other hand the characters look much better for the PC version.

I took two pictures to show you what I mean:

Is this what I am complaining about?

To be honest I was a little disapointed with the way these backgrounds look in the PC because all the rest is perfect.

Maybe I wanted some sort of MOD that could artificially make these backgrounds look like that PS1 screenshot?

The PC version has a hard time filtering some of the 2D graphics, that’s why they don’t look as “good” as on ePSXe and plugins that boost filtering. It is possible to achieve similar results but not with the current display driver.
