Very good press, a lot of detailed, layered sounds. It's hypnotic. Huge bass. No clicks or pops during play to speak of. Sounds amazing and I'd think any noises or other anomalies are inherent to the recording given that it was recorded under very lo-fi circumstances iirc. The album itself is one of the best ever. I'm glad to own this.

Can anyone tell me how to distinguish this pressing from the 2013 one? All the identifiers seem to be the same...

This is an amazingly detailed repress - a really crisp and dynamic recording and he wax is dead quiet too. An essential purchase.

XTAL does have some noise issues. I compared it to a digital version and it is noisy also, so some noise was meant to be there. It's just on the vinyl the noise is a bit more pronounced. Everything else is perfect.

Incredible pressing. No problems whatsoever... doesn't even seem to have the "Xtal" problem that others have complained about.

Best sounding electronic record I own. I had no problems with pressing errors. Most electronic records coming out today can't get their music in this quality I'd say it's a must get.

Wow, this 2018 pressing sounds amazing. I'm not usually picky about that sort of thing, but it just sounds incredible. It actually blew my subwoofer and I'm not even mad.

FWIW, I just picked up a copy where Xtal is perfect. Nice and loud with no unwanted noise.
