Absolutely love this album. Just recieved my vinyl version of it through rarewaves-ca on Amazon. Maybe not a good idea to order albums from the UK to Canada during COVID and a heat wave. It took 5 weeks, and while the package arrived in very good condition, the disc itself is pretty warped. Thankfully, I can't notice any sound distortion other than in between tracks.

Sounds great! Surprisingly good soundstage. Full sound. Clean flat pressing.

I've got 2 copies with the same pressing mistake. At the beginning of the first song there is a hardly visible scratch that causes disturbing clicks in every turning for 20 seconds.
