Flimsy thing, breaks way to quickly. Don't understand why they didn't go for a jewel case here.

Wow this sounds amazing to me. Really nice, quiet pressing. Listen to "Bobby In Phoenix" for the best proof.

Mine sounds really good, no issues. I love the photos on the sleeve, and the vinyl sounds perfect.

Good album, didn't need a regular repressing though. Neither did Demon Days, we could've just lived with the limited reissues cause it kinda destroyed the values of the og pressings, especially since there's nothing distinguishing them really (physically speaking) from the og pressings. My copy of this sounds pretty fine, with this disc was a lot lighter green like in the promo material. Jacket is kinda thin though and I was worried that it'd be destroyed in the mail. Tracks 1B and 2B are unfortunately full of skips, and considering those are my favorite 2 on the album, I'm a little disappointed. If more care was put into this release, I'd be all over it. But if you have the funds and you're all about quality, I'd say just for for the og release. Same thing with Demon Days, as for the reissue of that they cut all of the transitions between tracks out for whatever reason, and the sound quality is lower

Now I feel bad for the person who paid $119 for the numbered edition of the same standard black pressing :(

The transitions on this are horrible, but otherwise it's a quality pressing.(The joplin spider ends, put on side B and it plays the last 2 seconds of it due to the beginning of The Parish of Space Dust)

My copy didn't have any skips, but it did have an awkward gap between "The Parish of Space Dust" and "A Snake In Dallas" that ruins the transition.

My side A was pretty decent, but the B side is unreliable as hell. Lots of skipping on 8 and 9, some skipping on Amarillo too. Shame.

to those with the skip on B1, it might be worth checking your turntable. I had the problem, then decided to check my cartridge alignment, anti-skate and tracking force and voila the skips seems to be gone! The pressing does look a little wobbly though, so maybe if things aren't just right you'll get the skip... All that aside it sounds great and looks great!.. good luck...

Mine came with a dish warp, but the Vinyl Flat took care of that after a good cleaning on the RCM. No pops, clicks or issues, sounds great and it's a great album. Happy to have grabbed it.
