My copy of this definitely has the whooshing that others have noted. These 2008 pressings are dicey. Buyer beware...

My copy sounds quite nice. Mostly silent and fairly dynamic. Little bit of inner groove distortion. Some minor pops but nothing that diminishes the listening experience. No brushing or whooshing sounds as noted on some other pressings. I would recommend this pressing.

Pressing on both sides with bass heavy vibrating background noise. Too bad :-(

I have a slightly different Matrix / Runout: My side A has what is listed above, minus the "RE-5" and "RJ Sterling". So it just reads "JAG-115LP-A". Same thing for side B: only "JAG-115LP-B". Anybody know if this is a different pressing? Or...?

This is a 4.5 star pressing. Probably the best one out there at the moment though. I love this album and it sounds great on vinyl, but there are some slight clicks/surface noise especially on side B where you notice it in the quiet sections. Still, if you love this album you can’t go wrong with this pressing.

Having owned this for a year or so - the sound is so much better than the original vinyl. No comparison at all - also the sleeve quality is really really nice. However if you love this LP, I would recommend forking out for this re-issue compared to an original.

No issues with my copy. Barely any surface noise and only a few noteworthy pops especially considering what a quiet album this is. SETUP - Technics SLDD33 (LP Gear CFT4PSE cart. tracking 1.5g) Pioneer SX 737, Klipsch R51M.

For those wondering how this compares to the first press of this album, I finally got around to listening to this, and it sounds better. However, it still is pressed by Jagjaguwar, who after almost 25 years in the industry, still hasnt learned to press a good record. As such it is horribly off centered and noisy in a few spots like every single record they have ever made. So it definitely isnt a great pressing, however, a tiny bit better than the first one, though in my opinion still sounds very small and not open and airy (could just be the nature of the recording, considering it was recorded in a small cabin).

Also, just an FYI, this is still available for purchase on Bon Iver's official webstore for $25.

Unfortunately had to get rid of the record shortly after buying it as it sounds horrible. Surface noise is very overpowering. Great album but not worth buying on vinyl.
