i just opened the a new purchased sealed (outside Mint) Awaken, My Love! Box and i am shocked! Sides A & C are not even VG. Both are heavy Audible scratched, Side D has some strange remains of a kind of sticker. The whole release sounds not good at all and everything is full of fingerprints, looks like 2nd hand (but it was sealed and afrom a good record store) - the Download code for mp3 files is one more dissapointment i thing at least FLAC files should intended to this kind of release... in short: not really "we are committed to preserving it in a way that honors its important place in musical history" [quote from urpressing(dot)com] - is there any option to exchange/replace the vinyl?

Purchased mine from Amazon UK, absolutely brilliant condition and all 4 sides sound amazing. Sucks that people got bad pressings, seems like the release was a bit iffy for certain retailers.

Logged into this account just to back the reviews. Although, it seems I got luckier than most. No print issues, but some damage to the sleeves for the records. TONS of surface noise on all sides, pops, cracks, skipping, the whole deal. Ruins the feel of the album for me because this production sounds incredible on vinyl.
I was very skeptical as soon as I opened and saw a booklet full of photos and not lyrics. Plus, it's very obvious your $50-$60 was paying for the app access and cardboard headset.
Not real happy with this one, would've hoped for more out of Donald's team.

I had 2 copies of this box. Every vinyl were played so terrible. A lot of skips and surface noise. Two vinyl were horrible warped. Where is the quality control in factory for this price?

Mine is perfect, no noise of loss in quality. There might be difference between the US and International Versions in terms of quality, but since I've only heard the quality of the International Version then i'm not one to comment.

Contact United Pressing on their FB page and complain about their notorious lack of quality.

Go ahead, check all your worst sounding new/current pressed albums, and you will see that "U" etched in a circle.
UNITED IS THE WORST. I knew this album would be pressed there because Gambino and the demographic, are hipsters and not audiophiles. This is how United makes their money. Pressing shit for people with low standards.

Exactly the same as previosly described. Side C is very-very bad, Side D is so-so until the final song. Side A and B are OK. Very sad, that this nice thing is so badly pressed. I returned my copy to shop and got CD instead.

On my copy side A/B sound perfect, but side C is not good; has a lot of noise throughout. Side D is fine until the final track (the untitled bonus live recording) which has a bit of noise.

All the packaging on my copy looks great. The lps had numerous scuffs so I ran them through the spin clean and upon play everything sounded fine with the exception of some minor surface noise throughout. No snaps crackles or pops.
