My copy of this has two pristine vinyl slabs. No dishing, and very, very quiet. They sound great.

As a heads up - I bought this double LP last week (Dec 2017). Both discs are noticeably dished. The vendor told me this pressing was a faulty batch. I don’t know whether every single copy will be dished but it’s something to bear in mind when considering grade - dished copies are not mint and should be priced accordingly.
