It's not Wasting Light, it lacks that certain magic. But a very solid vinyl album. There's something great about ALL of the Foo Fighter albums I own: they're all very quiet, with almost zero static at (even in my dry climate).

I'm experiencing some surface noise, but also bought on clearance from Target so it's no that big of a loss. Foo's really need to simplify again as there is sometimes too much going on in the songs that it's hard to connect to the music in the way that we(fans) connected to the first 4 albums.

This particular pressing sounds very very thin on my setup. Feels like there is no depth to the music whatsoever. It's quite disappointing, but considering i bought it on clearance at target for half price, i guess it wasn't that big of a loss. Whomever mastered this particular pressing did not do a very good job.

Not Foo Fighters best album but after a few listens it starts to sound quite good. I do feel however that this is Foo Fighters trying not to sound too much like themselves. For me personally this sounds like foo fighters trying to replicate the sounds of bands such as Beatles, Queen, Pink Floyd etc and failing to bring all the influences in an exceptional way. It's almost the sound of a band trying too hard to sound great when all they really need to do is just be the Foo Fighters in order to do so.

Concrete and Gold does have some great moments and others which leave you slightly underwhelmed and feeling it's all a bit average.

The album is generally produced to the point it almost has too much going on at times and I would recommend listening to it on a descent system to get the best from it. Overall I do like this album but it's definitely not a 5 star album.

The pressing is good. No distortion or surface noise.

This pressing is well done.

Is anyone experiencing repeating/looping on some of the sides (B C)? I'm going to test on another turntable once I can hook it up to a receiver, but I haven't had any problems playing other records on my Crosley player before.

What's about the Black In Black edition? They sold them in their London-based Pub

I can't decide if I like this album or not. The first few listens were from a digital source and I wasn't impressed, but when I played the record for the first time at volume some of the greater moments on the album started to shine. Meh, still I'm I'm unconvinced though. There are some cool moments and good songs, but it's no Wasting Light. I respect the band for what they're attempting to do, but I have one nagging thought, "Are they trying too hard?"
Nice pressing though! If you're going to buy this album on vinyl, buy this one.

Can someone verify if the European pressing has a small inscription to the side of the M in '.COM' on the D-side etching?

Too much reverb on this album. Pop producer's do not work well with rock bands.

Does anyone know where this version of the record was pressed?
