my copy is pretty bad, contains terrible noise in the right channel on the first record, and the second record has some crap on it that I can't remove, causing the first minute or so to be unplayable.

The sound quality of this 45rpm release is pretty good, but my copy did have some surface noise in several obvious places. However, why is "Earth Intruders" edited down? They removed the intro slushing noise in the beginning and the foghorns at the end. It can't be because of running time because there are only two songs on side A! And yeah, it's just noise, but it's still part of the album.

Anyone got a defective copy? As in the hole wasn't punched right in the center, so the record got stuck while spinning. My red LP is like this and I can't get it to play. Frustrating.

Well I for one appreciate her ability to push herself. It doesn't always have to work, when experimenting that's part of the result sometimes. There's next time to try and get it right if wanted. With that said this is a really good album. The influence of 1970's as in the minimalist track "Pneumonia" and the Malian grooves in "Hope" are 2 quick standouts. And that's my take as I'm actually listening to the album (Side D) as I type my opinion. I suspect I will like the album even more after a couple of more listens because the tracks vary in sound and style. But that's Bjork for you or at least for me it is..

Thankfully, my copy had the sticker applied to the left flap only, instead of the middle, so you can open the digi without tearing the sticker.

Was quite upset that this repress didn't come in a gatefold, especially after the absolutely stunning designs featured on the Vespertine and Medulla ones. Also, the inner sleeves are particularly thin.

This sounds way better than all of the other represses but it spins very oddly I don't think the hole is like directly in the middle because it looks like it could slip off at any minute but jamz super glad I got this
