Beautiful album and this pressing sounds gorgeous, full of depth and pure clear sound with very few crackles

I really don't get it.... there seems to be crossover information regarding US vs EU versions.

I bought mine because I thought it was the EU version. The bar code is 602537649747. The small text next to it says "Manufactured in Germany by Furnace MFG / The Pallas Group for Capitol Records", but also says "Made in USA" and then "B001983901".

The US listing on here has all the same info/notes as the EU listing. Both say Germany? Do both have the "Manufactured in Germany" line? Is there a US version that doesnt say that? I really don't get it.... there seems to be crossover information regarding US vs EU versions.

It seems like the only actual difference is the "Made in..." line... EU vs USA. Is there a version that DOES NOT say manufactured in Germany by Pallas? Can someone give a clear response?

It's an absolute sonic masterpiece - instruments come out of nowhere, deep bass, fabulous articulate acoustic guitar work, Beck's singing is so smooth, such attention to detail on producing enveloping stereo harmonies. Everything about his record is so deep and rich, but let's not forget the Bob Ludwig / Bernie Grundman magic here as its getting all that fabulous production to effortlessly float into the room. I have the German Pallas pressing and it too has a few clicks and pops so I have run it through the cleaning machine twice and its all gone.

I'm in the US and bought both the US and the EU pressings. The US pressing is pretty bad and the EU pressing is pretty excellent. Vinyl quality and mfg process control at Pallas beats almost every mfg we have over here-- and especially Rainbo and United-- which seem to press a very disproportionate share of bad vinyl. Get the EU pressing. Oh, and if you like Beck's "Sea Change" album, this is a continuation of that project. A masterful and beautiful work of art.

A fine pressing, though there's some heavy pops with mine.

Is there a difference between the two LP-versions? Just bought one, but can't really tell which of the two it is.

Just listened to this last night, very clean pressing, states "Made in Germany" on the record label. Pallas pressing plant. Love this album.

Lovely sounding slab of 180 gram vinyl, but sadly no download card in mine...
