Great 12" if you want a collection of great songs, but mine skips on the first track of side B, so that gives it 2 out of 5 for me, as it seems a common problem, so shit production. But still, I do love the songs.

I really don't understand why people would spend money on this thing

My copy of this fine release played absolutely great. It's really nice to hear this material again on vinyl. Better open up my Earls Court discs,sounds like many people had issues with that release!

I’m experiencing skipping on the first track of side b as well. the parts that play of that track sound terrible almost the entire song. Otherwise it’s a good album. I hope a spinclean fixes this - or adjusting the weight, but that’s not really great for the record or needle

No skipping on my copy, but I did experience some non-fill issues with the b-side of this album. Ripping noises, alternately in the right and left channel, and most disturbingly in both channels at a certain point in Weeping Wall. Did anyone else have similar experiences?

Great release. Love the white vinyl, and the sound on mine is amazing. I am not experiencing skips or jumps like some other reviewers here, however I am wondering what type of turntable is this happening on (manual vs.auto tone arm)? I play mine on a manual players and always re-calibrate my anti-skip once every 6 months or so.

My first copy jumped a lot on Side B. Have to change it for a new one. Sad to know that I'm not the only one with this problem. :(

Looks like I've got one of the ' special side two jumps badly' copies. Not happy.

Hey everyone, I experienced the skipping issue too, but after adjusting the anti-skate it worked fine :) . I believe it has to do with the bass of many of the songs on the record, so try adjusting some settings. This is a great pressing!

No skips here. Please don't let this be another "Heroes" "Issue" :-/
