Mine came with "extra bonus surface noise" - gave it a wash, doesn't helped much. Pity!

Not the biggest fan of the artwork quality here. But, I must've gotten lucky with the wax as mine has no issues.

Beautiful presentation and the remaster sounds otherworldly. My copy bately has any pops & crackles. Either I got lucky or there's been a second batch pressed already.

Either way, I am pleased to finally own the soundtrack on vinyl.

The mastering is dynamic and robust, that part was done well. The front cover art is sharp. The artwork on the inner gatefold and one side of the inner sleeve is indeed very grainy, the inner gatefold in particular looks absolutely horrible. The record does sound good, not weak or compressed-- quite dynamic. But whoever approved the gatefold image is negligent, honestly they would have been better off leaving it a single sleeve and reducing the price or at least doing a few small high res screenshots from the film & liner notes from Christopher Young. Anything besides that blurry disaster they put in.

This has to be one of the worst pressings I've heard in a while. I'm listening to it right now and the sound quality for something that is supposed to be "remastered" is absolute garbage. Wow! There's tons of surface noise, pops, crackles and the tracks sound compressed and weak. Check this out...I opened it and the record sleeve they used did that "vacuum seal" thing where it sticks to the album. Great. Getting it out of the sleeve was a pain in the ass and caused the album to scrape against the sleeve. I put it on for a spin and I'm not kidding here - side A sounds like a dollar bin record at the flea market - HUGE skips where the needle dragged halfway across the record! Twice! WTF! I took the album off and tried cleaning it, did a thorough wash and put it back on. The skips are gone, save for one, but the sound quality is total shit still. Side B sounds better but this is not a good pressing and I'm disappointed because this was one I've been looking forward to for a long time. I guess I'll try and get the Mondo copy now? Ugh. Anyone else having these issues with this pressing? Normally, Lakeshore presses pretty good stuff but this one sucks ass for such an iconic score. Wtf Lakeshore??

Oh! I'd also like to add the the photos they used on the gatefold and the sleeve suck! It looks like they took images from the original VHS and blew them up for this record.

*Update: I cleaned side A again to see if it would help. I mean I drowned it it fluid and then very carefully wiped it clean. It helped. Side A is now at least listenable. What the hell though? How dirty are these things coming from the pressing plant? I shouldn't have to sand blast a new record. :/

*UPDATE: 11/16/17
I just received my replacement record. It took over a month to get it! Wow! Ok, so here's the verdict on my replacement - it sounds better than the original one. There's still some surface noise but not nearly as bad as the other copy.

Aaaaand it has a slight warp. Lol...fuck. Can't win. Really wish this would have come with a download card. :/
