I have a feeling this may be plated only at RTI (I believe Kevin Grays facility is close) but then pressing done by Jagjaguwar whose own pressings are notoriously bad. I don’t have a copy but I’m just speculating and may be wrong but just my suspicion having seen these reviews.

Terrible pressing. Static throughout the album, mastering is really bad, just a general all around terrible pressing that can be picked up on Amazon.

I'm surprised this isn't a bootleg copy.

I'd love to know how to get a good pressing. I have the same brushing sound and can't even listen to this album anymore because of it.

My pressing isn't so bad on the A side except on the second track I get the brushing sound in the quieter parts. Very minor crackling remains after cleaning and anti-static gun + cf brush. B has the brushing throughout the first two tracks and it diminishes from then on out. Louder tracks like "For Emma" remain listenable/can't hear brushing sound.

I've got the same horrible brushing sound on Side B as well. My copy is the recent clear vinyl repress. Just really disappointing. Was going to send back but now I'm dubious.

Just received this version from Amazon. While all my previous purchases have been fantastic with no problems, this particular version is awful. I thought something was wrong with my TT but looking at these reviews makes me feel better. I too had a wooshing/brushing sound throughout the entire album. Shame since this is a wonderful album but this pressing is subpar. I will fork over for the better pressings I guess.

On my copy of this release the second side was the wrong speed! I emailed the label and they sent me a new one though, they were pretty friendly about it. But yeah, it's a shame they didnt invest in getting a better quality pressing
