OK, so I have the US vinyl in the Rough Trade sleeve...I bought it new in the UK. Does this make me unique or was there a mix up at the shop...?! Am I alone in this universe?

This pressing is generally good except theres definitely some inner groove distortion on the last tracks of each side. Pressing: 3.5/5. Music: All time classic/5

My absolute favorite arcade fire album! Every song is just as good as the last one.
