Björk album pressings are quite known for not having the best audiophile quality out there, actually most of them don't do justice to the music that they contain... but wow. I beg to differ with this pressing, phenomenal, breathy pressing. It's dead quiet, clear of clicks and pops, dynamic & grand. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoyed the album as much as I did.

My first record it's domed, not completely flat. but sounds great. Isn't usual with Optimal pressings...

Does someone who owns both this and the peach colored one is able to compare the listening experience? I mean apart from the color feature ... are there any differences at the sound? Thanks
