This is an absolutely gorgeous album, and the vinyl has perfect sound... seriously. FLAWLESS. WOw. The packaging is impressive too: embossed cover artwork (glows in the dark too), then the inner sleeves have their own inners holding the records, like a Russian nesting doll. Highly recommend.

One of my favorites from Beach House. A lovely record overall, and it actually sounds really clear on my copy of the vinyl--not warped at all! The packaging is a little underwhelming, though, as it would have been nice to get it in a gatefold edition. Still though, I am really liking my copy!

Both records warped. Another user commented on a locked groove separating the last 2 tracks. Seems like the concept is something of a secret track that you have to manually move the needle to? On top of the records being warped, it seems more of an annoyance than anything else. Sound quality despite all this is great.

Got this new off of amazon. It came warped, so I got it replaced. The second copy was not warped. Wouldn't take chances on a used copy of this

Very warm sounding album, although I'm pretty sure it could have fit on a single vinyl.

Mine too came warped. Not too bad, doesn't affect playback. Sound is really good!

In theory this should be great since it's pressed at 45rpm across two LPs. Unfortunately both LPs were warped right out of the packaging, probably due to the records being crammed into a thick double cardstock inners into a too small outer jacket. Mine are also off-center - definitely not what you want for music like this. To top it off, one side has some bits of non-fill. Disappointed overall. The hi-rez download that came with the LP set actually sounds better than the LP set itself. Not sure who pressed this, maybe Erika since the label seems to send a lot of work there? Whatever plant it was, they need to get their act together.

The locked groove totally had me fooled. I walked over to the turntable ready to put the record away after a great listen, then I noticed that there was still another AWESOME track. The locked groove is so effective, as it essentially separates the main album from the bonus track, leaving the bonus song feeling like a beautiful epilogue to the record. The sound of this pressing is very solid BTW. Very full, warm, and sweet.

It's worth noting that each of the discs has two card inner sleeves, the first have colour images, the second (which fit into the first) have lyrics.

Also, the outer sleeve has an embossed front face with glow-in-the-dark printing on the light bulb pattern.

Lovely packaging overall.
