Love the music, but as others noted, this pressing doesn't sound very good. It's not nearly as bad as the Polyvinyl "Antisocialites" PRC-334 yellow I should have mailed back (too lazy). That is darn near unlistenable...….seems criminal to put out such bad representations of such exceptional music. I will avoid Polyvinyl like an urgent care waiting room. They are very pretty though....haha :)

clean the record with an RCM or a wash might make a difference.

No popping on my copy but very poor mastering indeed. Still a great record.

Does anyone else's copy sound really muddy and flat? It sounds great digitally. Is it the goddamn colored vinyl or the mastering dude? Noticed AC - MPP sounded crap too.
