Sounds fantastic, not sure why others are complaining about the release. Either this record is a hit or miss depending on the copy, or the people complaining have poor audio setups. Using a serious HIFI and an extremely efficient pre-amp I hear literally no crackles or pops on my copy.

Similar to the other Twin Peaks release on Death Waltz, mine sounds acceptable, and the packaging and overall presentation of the release is particularly nice. However, the Warner Bros Records reissue sounds superior, though I am glad to have both and will certainly be holding on to this one.

I must have good luck with Death Waltz reissues bc this sounds fantastic to me, w/ the exception of slight crackles that fade into the music easily.

Top packaging but copy sounds like shit : a reissue to avoid.

i ve got both pressings because the death waltz was first (it is a bad joke to issue a good reprint with the original artwork a couple of month later) and a high end setting and for my ears there are no differences concerning dynamics and mastering etch except the death waltz pressing has lots of side noises which is the problem with so much pressings today. a tip from an boring old fart and graphic designer who buys vinyl since 1979: avoid reprints and always look for original pressings (or reissues from the 80s) to get less surface noises (even if VG+ with surface marks!) and which is also important: get the proper artwork with sharp images and sharp typo which so much reprint releases today lack of with their shitty bootleg feel... and where does that stupid 180 gr dogma came from?!

Last time i've purchased from Death Waltz it was Twin Peaks but the original soundtrack to the TV show. Horrible. I had to replace it and second copy was not "all that". Now Rhino has reissued both soundtracks and they're fantastic (and cheap). Go get them and avoid this one.

The music itself sounds fantastic but as many have mentioned there is an obnoxious amount of surface noise throughout; I'm sure this is largely due to the gimmicky "cherry pie" coloring. It would be great if Death Waltz would put out these releases in standard black vinyl as well, for those of us who care about the music more than fancy packaging.

I guess it's luck but mine sounds absolutely fantastic, a really wonderfully clean pressing. Maybe it's karma after purchasing Mondo's bogus Fountain release!

First copy I got was terrible: surface of side A had visible (and audible) marks all over it. Took it back to the store and got another copy, with exactly the same issue. Similar problems have been reported extensively with the soundtrack to the series, but I guess I was lucky when I got my copy. Very bad quality control... Shame!

My sounds great too. It was remastered from the original master tapes. From reading the comments here you would expect it to sound awful but it sounds perfect. Maybe people have poor audio set-ups, shitty needles or bad speakers or they got unlucky with the press. Either way there are many factors when it comes to vinyl. The Rhino repress is not sourced from the original tapes so I have my reservations about that. David Lynch and Angelo Badalamenti supposedly worked on this remaster so.....
