Have now gone thru 2 copies both of which have the same sound issue at the same spot in Fluffy Tufts :(

A gorgeous album and I have just received the reissue. I have the original 45rpm version which is now rather crackly and worn out, hence me jumping at the chance for this reissue. My copy sounds excellent, silent and not distorted at all.

However, it is a bit disappointing that playing the 45rpm album at 33rpm is no longer possible. The "two-in-one" album this created was a nice, although unintentional, touch. Playing the new 33rpm record at 45rpm doesn´t work for me though.

Unfortunately, I've had pressing errors on two copies, both of which I have now returned to my ever patient record dealer - shout out to Norman Records, UK.

On both the copies, the A side has been covered in the worst non-fill I've ever seen on a record. Sometimes, you get a few streaks of it to an isolated area of the disk but, in this case, both copies looked like they had been sneezed on. The result being distortion throughout, not at all desirable on a quiet record like this.

A great shame because Victorialand is a fantastic record.

My copy of this is a bit noisey, with distortion on B2, but otherwise rather pleased to just actually have a copy. Packaging is very nice

Off-white stationary. Interesting. 45 speed. Interesting. No drum machines. Interesting. This artifact feels like handling a piece of soapstone. I give no review of the music itelf, just give it a whirl and hearsee for yourself. But no, really, this gets slated into the "indy/prog/exp" (? d:o\) top 10 from me as well. agreed.

This is in my top 10 albums of all time, and my favorite from the Cocteau Twins. Put on a good pair of headphones, close the curtains, maybe light a few candles, lie down somewhere comfortable, and be prepared to drift off into another universe. It's some of the most genuinely "psychedelic" music ever recorded, at once alien and familiar; it's just as cold and crystalline as the album's name and artwork suggest, but will leave you feeling warm and fuzzy. It's just a perfect record from a band who were at the top of their game when it came out. They released Victorialand, Love's Easy Tears, and the Moon and the Melodies all in the same year! I hope I live long enough to see another band come along who are as prolific, consistently good, and just utterly SINGULAR in every sense of the word as the Cocteau Twins were.

I believe the first pressing comes with a poster inside.

I know the Ireland pressing of this album is apparently translucent when put up to light, but is it true with the UK pressing as well?
