I listened to my copy for the first time since buying and on dropping the needle was surprised to hear such poor sound during the "Wind On Water" track, however, this soon evened out and was a good listen for the rest of the record.

Unbearable surface noise on my copy as well.
New King Crimson reissues on Panegiric are superb pressings, rivalling the originals on many fronts, this is a bad surprise.
Not worthy.

The US Edition EG press is pretty damn quiet. Go 80's.

Lovely album. Not as great as No Pussyfooting, whose ambition and execution lead to a grander achievement. But the pressing question is the relevant one. I found this better than the DGM pressing of No Pussyfooting, which was lifeless. This is full and engaging, great tonal range, impressive weight to accentuated tones. Surface noise is less of an issue for me. "Dead quiet" is not vinyl's strong suit, and it doesn't last if you're lucky to find it. I know it is common to remark on this, but to my mind, it verges on a category mistake. Vinyl remains the supreme format for other virtues. That said, surface noise is a matter of degree and relative to the cost of the LP. My pressing of Evening Star is a bit noisy, but well within acceptable -- i.e. not distracting, and only slightly audible between tracks. Any word from Fripp on this, btw? No one can consider either repressing industry standard let alone exemplary.

Oh my. Well this is completely disappointing. I'm sitting here sort of stunned at how much surface noise is here. Side One was *not* good at all, and now that I'm hearing side two... this is very, very close to unlistenable. Looking this up online, there are plenty of complaints. I wish I had looked it up first before I jumped. I bought it online from a vendor so I can't return it... it's not the vendors fault. Unbelievable that this record passed quality control. It's awful. Buyer beware.

This is a 1977 reissue. Polydor reissued the whole existing King Crimson catalog at that year, along with the two Fripp/Eno albums.

Same here. I tried on two different set-ups, with 3 different cartrigdes, and even with micro-line AT 440 MLa sufrace noise is still there just at a bit lower level.

My copy of this new reissue is, without any exaggeration, the most surface noise-ridden new record I've ever bought. There are moments when the surface noise seems louder than the actual music! Side A is bearable, but side B is just unlistenable: the hissing lasts through the entire track. Does anyone else have this problem? The recent (No Pussyfooting) vinyl reissue seems to suffer from the same problem.

What a great release this is ! Fripp & Eno at their best . It is interesting how the mood changes when you switch sides on the lp version . Side A sounds sweet , relaxed & so promising , you can't help but listen over & over again . "An Index Of Metals" spans through side B , what a drastic change !!! One of the most haunting music themes ever ... imagine , early morning hours , alone in a dark room at low volume level ... it literally changed my life when I first auditioned it at the age of 18 !!! All in all , the album is placed on top of the list of ambient , avant-garde releases of all times :-0
