The 7 inch single skips on both sides when played with my shure v15 iii vn35e, I can see the cantilever getting bent over the groves. However, with AT440mlb, the single plays fine, probably due to the high compliance micro line stylus.

My copy sounds very nice!! No skipping or surface noise on either side of the LP. The only sort of complaint that I have is that side A of the 7" does sound a little bit harsh. Other than that, stellar release!! Glad to finally own this on vinyl as it has been one of my favorite albums since I was a child! :)

My labels (on the LP) are switched. Does anyone have the same issue?

I bet most if not all of the people complaining about skipping have Crosleys....

My LP is skipping on Side A at The Last Song a lot! I return this product back.

No skipping on my Project SE2.
But... has to be said, I can't tell the difference between this and the CD. CD is a bit louder. Problem with the album is that it's quite bass heavy, as a result the LP on my set up sounds a bit muddy and dense at times.
