I was really afraid of buying this on vinyl, but my copy is really good so I guess I was lucky

Can somebody explain to me what's particularly "deluxe" about this release?

Let me start by saying that I have loved this album's mp3 version for years. I enjoy Animal Collective's brand of art/psych/experimental music and was ecstatic to buy this album on vinyl.
Unfortunately, this pressing is not well done. Actually, its pretty terrible. I purchased an unopened, mint condition version of the album only to be disappointed.

A1-"In the Flowers"; B2-"Daily Routine" both have one skip/distortion each
C2-"Taste" has two skip/distortions.
C1-"Guys Eyes" has at lease 6 areas during the song where it skips/distorts.

On top of this, the audio just sounds off in a few different songs.

BUYER BEWARE---Domino botched this up something awful.

Anybody else get a ridiculously distorted horrible copy of this on vinyl? One of the best albums I've ever heard and the pressing sounds shocking! Needles are brand new too. Real shame that the best version I have of this masterpiece is an mp3 download.

This is it so far for 2009 for me.
For me it´s like a session of aphex twin and brian wilson
impovisating on beatles song having a big trip.
The total killer is "brother sport" followed by "my girls".
Only time i saw them it was just a noisy wall of sound ending up after an hourin: i just called to say i love you by stevie wonder.
And it´s a good thing to buy the heavy 180g double vinyl
and get the digital versions for mobile devices for free.
