Nothing wrong with the pressing quality. Brilliant as usual. Sounds great

Essential companion to Syro in my opinion, otherwise this album isn't fully complete.

so TIL aphex twin records at sample rate of 96k.

Not gonna lie, I messed up the speeds the first time playing it (I thought b was the 45 side) and I love the way the A side is at 33 1/2, I recommend giving that a listen. I hear complaints about crackling, mine sounds just fine but hey that's Aphex Twin fans for you.

No problems on mine either. Great little ep. The only problem was looking up the speeds for either sides but that can be explained by usual afx asshattery.

I have three copies of this to sealed and one opened the one I listened to sounds absolutely amazing. Not sure what people are talking about with the sound quality? Mine sounds great however I used a 1200 techniques turntables and a decent sound system to play this out of. Check your needles?

Many people have reported problems with this pressing. Gladly my copy sounds dead quiet and absolutely fine. Leaving aside the pressing issue, I think the slightly muffled sound is intentional for an aesthetic purpose, not a mastering issue. RDJ has been aiming for that sound in many songs of his latest releases. I think these are great versions of already great tracks. I am really happy with my copy and would recommend anyone to pick one up. Good luck!

My pressing sounds okay overall but once you get to the inner grooves, it starts to crackle and spew static like firecrackers in a frying pan, quite disconcerting but it's nothing that can't be fixed through digitisation and extensive crackle removal.

Edit : this is true for both sides.

I checked my pressing as soon as I received it and there were no obvious issues with it, although I was playing it on a temporary setup so maybe I will check it again properly and update as necessary. I think the marketplace is the place to get this record to ensure no dodgy pressings.

My pressing didn't sound right. Made some samples, let Bleep have a listen and they said keep it, we will send you a new one. All good now. :)
