I got mine just today, but holy hell, Storm had an ear piercing noise on it and it killed me on the inside. Since I got this at my local record store I can just re-order another one, thankfully.

All the comments are about the sound quality and the material used for listening, nothing about the music itself. It's a bit weird...

So, should I upgrade from my old John Golden pressing?

For some reason my copy is absolutely fine but side 4 is slightly too fast. Is anyone else having this problem?

The magnum opus of Godspeed You! Black Emperor deserves all of the praise it receives. This work is about as moving and intense as any old classical work. Lift Your Skinny Fists is one of the greatest pieces of music conceived, it exists because of a disregard for genre and tradition, it was made solely to be music.

Amazing album, there's a bit of surface noise on my copy but nothing that distracts too much from the songs. Beautiful packaging and artwork.

this is a great repress with KP matrix etched runout (1st time on 180 gram vinyl), much better than the John Golden repress, this reissue sounds much more open with more details. Anyone who knows what KP stands for, please feel free to comment.

Re-review 2 years later: Listening to this album in several setup variations, I can say for sure the mastering sounds just right. Not a shower, but the details are still there. If anything, it's just as "muddy" as the digital version. Crackles is still sorta present in my copy, haven't wet-cleaned my copy yet to see if they vanish.
