I find this pressing to be very powerful-sounding, but certainly not perfect. Overall I was pleasantly surprised though. And the album is of course one of a kind.

Beautiful sound over a quiet backdrop on my 4AD. Nice clean thick sound. An excellent pressing.

Agree with some others here. This is the copy to have. Brushing noises are still present on side-b for my copy but far, far less noticeable and much less frequent. Surface noise on this pressing is night-and-day better than the US version. The cover material is thinner however which is the only drawback, but I'll take that with a much better record any day.

This is a wonderful album and my 4AD issue has a wonderful sound! No cracks, no shit, just pure hunting cabin sounds:)

Perhaps I misunderstand the complaints of others, but my copy of this edition does not have any particular audio artifacts. It sounds remarkably like the digital copy I listened to previously via Spotify, in that both are what I consider the poorest recording I have had the pleasure of listening to in recent years.
Please do not misunderstand me - I love this music. But it does not sound like a professional recording.
I would hesitate to recommend the purchase of this on vinyl, simply because the gain from moving to vinyl is minimal at best for this album.
