My most-played record since it came out in 2010 - so many different ways of packing a punch. Major step forward from the first record, and, for me, it hasn't really been bettered since... We've all got our own late night songs but Suffocation is up there for me - raw charged emotion - probably one of their more accessible tracks I guess, but also has a distance and loneliness to it...

My copy has a Parental Advisory label on the lower left hand corner of the cover also, but no poster. It came wrapped in plastic brand new, so I don't think the record shop swiped it. But with all the mess-ups related to this pressing, I'm just glad I got A/B & C/D, not B/B & C/D.

The first time I heard this LP I initially glossed through the tracks and hated it. Tried again a little while later and dismissed it. Sometime later, someone had it on as background music in the car and I really started enjoying it. It took me awhile to get used to it considering this one has a much darker sound than the first LP. Personally, I really like this style much more than the first LP and I always seem to come back to this one on late nights with headphones on. Great stuff!

Not only did my copy had the B sides pressed on both sides of the first LP, the second LP had the D side on both sides of the second LP. Also, the grooves on second D were pressed in a weird way and the record wont spin/play correctly. I got my copy from amazon and they will send me a new copy pretty soon. I just hope I get a good copy this time. What a letdown!

If anyone has bought a copy with a mispress as such: the B side being pressed on both sides of the first disc, a release has been created for it: Crystal Castles - Crystal Castles

How prevalent is the pressing error in this version? I just got a new copy and sides A and B both have side B tracks on the vinyl. So I have sides B, B, C, D. I'm surprised I haven't found more information about the error other than one guy's Amazon review about his similar experience.
