This pressing is certainly not as bad as I expected it to be. As someone mentioned before, there's some light popping for some reason, but it's never really terribly invasive. The sound is definitely 'warm' - almost too much but it is still an enjoyable listen. If you must have this record, probably go with this pressing.

I really enjoy this album, but the pressing has a lot of background noise (popping/static).
The "warmer" sound they decided to go with isn't bad, but isn't to my taste.
The extra stuff (artwork, lyrics, etc) I felt was lackluster too.

Weird to see everyone gravitating to the other UK/EU pressing. I have both the UK copy and this EU version with MATT @ ALCHEMY and I think this pressing sounds much clearer.

Huh, mine has this label code but doesn't have the misprint. I feel jipped, frankly!

Dull pressing. It sounds flat, lack of separation and high frecuency. Is a really compressed mix on any format, but the vinyl sounds even more.

This is Coldplay's best album in my opinion. As far as the sound quality on this, I A/B tested it against a CD copy and have to disagree with the "muddy" and "shit" verdict. A double album pressing is what this deserves and whilst the mix is very different to the cd, I would say it's warmer and to a certain degree the sound stage isn't as clear, I'm happy with my purchase.

Anybody know the release/pressing date on this? It states 2008 on the label but clearly a re-issue

Easily Coldplay's best album. It's no coincidence as Brian Eno was on board to guide their vision. This pressing (at least the one I got) is problem free and I think it sounds great.

Is the cardboard wallet contained inside the standard 4-panel sleeve? If not, where does the barcode come from? Please update to include runouts if at all possible. Thanks!
