Avoid! Same as others - opened up brand new and incredibly dirty along with tons of bad scuffs and other marks all over both sides. Garbage quality piece of vinyl.

Bought brand new. Does have some occasional surface noise but not as terrible as some other albums that I've bought recently. Listenable. The music is excellent, pressing quality is average at best.

Purchsaed brand new, sealed. There's a few spots throughout both sides that are very noisy and scratchy for just a second, that won't go away without cleaning. Makes it very annoying to listen to, not worth the money.

Bought it brand new and there was significant background noise and significant skip in Goodbye Pork Pie Hat. Bringing this one back.

This relevant to the 2013 180g release. There were several skips on side 1 (a problem I don't think I've ever had on new vinyl). High noise floor. And the surface looks dirty, as if it has mold-release compound on it. I'll give the LP a wash and see if things improve, but I'm not really impressed with this release of an otherwise excellent album.
