This album is just so so great! But I wish I'd buy a regular black version, not deluxe one... It's amazing and I love it - the packaging and color of LPs (I think this is the best deluxe I own), but I'm sick of deluxe versions getting worse sound... I'd be ok with black color and no additional stuff, really. Some sides are fine, some have a lot of static, noise, pops, distortion, skipped a couple of times... Not unlistenable, but no big pleasure too, so you better buy a regular one if this is what matters to you.

My copy has a decent amount of pops and clicks on A1-3, not unlistenable. There is some clicking on the rest of the album but it does not negatively affect the listen. All around a good purchase. Audiophiles should stick with the standard black pressing.

I was lucky enough to pre-order and get the bonus 7". My US copy, although slightly off-centered, is very quiet and sounds great (no distortion, very few clicks). Both inner sleeves arrived with seam splits The color of the vinyls are beautiful metallic, marbled (aluminum & copper). I do see there is a version listed with a sticker of FJM caricature with a cellphone included in addition to the tarot card.

My pressing is pretty good, though some sides sound much better than others. A lot of noticeable distortion in the vocals during Leaving LA. Skipped on side A and side D. Consistent static and noise but it's more apparent when using headphones, not so much on the speakers. I'm not incredibly picky about these sorts of things but I do think they're worth noting when considering the purchase. Packaging is incredible and unique.

My copy is fine until the last track (pops/static, but is also last track). Good, solid record on beautiful wax.

Amazing album. A good amount of noise and clicks on my copy. A touch of distortion on his voice here and there, but it's not unlistenable. It's hard to find perfect pressings of modern recordings, but there's something wrong when "deluxe version" recipients get lesser sound quality pressings than the standard version buyers. I'd rather have black LPs with quality sound than fancy metallic discs with distracting noises.

I have had a lot of static issues, love the songs but it sounds like someone else played them 200x before i did.

My first side is extra noisy. I tried everything to get it clean to no avail. Songs are great, would sound better without all the white noise, other 3 sides are good, but first side has a lot of static.

Finally got around to listening to my copy - super noisy, especially Side A. Record skipped twice during "Total Entertainment Forever" too. Emailed SubPop, fingers crossed they will send me a replacement copy.

Great vinyl color and packaging, despite the horrible seam splits on all three corners of both of the inner sleeves.

Just out of curiosity: did everyone's holographic card have the "Despair" image? Mine does, and the pictures for this release has the Despair one as well. Anybody get anything different?
