Another frustrating pressing. The music sounds great, well mastered, but the record has too much surface noise. I returned my first copy; the second seems a bit better, but I could see scuffs on both records (probably from the paper sleeve). I'm keeping this one because I found it cheap online, but the pops and ticks can be annoying (yes, I wet-cleaned it).

Sounds amazing. Miles better than my 4men with beards pressing (though I preferred the font on the cover and track placement of You and Your Sister on that one, but I’ll still be selling it haha)

I just wanted to know if anyone's blue vinyl
decided to "warp itself"
and now be unplayable,
despite not being anywhere near direct sunlight ... (I realise this is strange, but I've never trusted colour vinyl)

This translucent blue vinyl reissue sounds fantastic!
Dead quiet pressing with great dynamics.
No sibilance present.
Perhaps the best this album has ever sounded!

No holds barred review since I along with many others have had nothing but frustration with this record on vinyl:
First thing I notice is scuffing from the inner sleeve on side 1. Luckily this is not a huge deal as the noise level remains pretty unaffected throughout by this scuff. There is still surface noise and crackle on occasion but nothing nearly as bad as previous pressings. The hot button issue is the sibilance on You and Your Sister that plagued other pressings. You'll be happy to know that there is no such sibilance on this pressing! Don't let the pretentious buffoons say "Nah, it's your setup." Clearly not the case. Don't go out buying a couple hundred dollar cart. This is as good as it has been for this beautiful album.

Received my copy today. No surface noise, recording sounds solid throughout. Can't opine on other pressings since I've never heard them, just thankful to finally have this repress in my collection.
