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.

Pretty bummed that my THE FALL is almost unplayable. There is some skipping on side A and side B is completely fudged. From reading these comments its clear to me that this is a manufacturing issue. Where is the quality control? I'm in the process of attempting to return the record(bought from a seller here) and gonna take my chances on AMAZON and re-order. Wish me luck!!!

Inspecting the outer sleeve, it seems that the cardboard is as basic as it can get, with glued flaps on top not perfectly lined up with the edge.
Other than that, there is no indication from the outside that this is a 2019 RDS record, with the only date being listed is 2010 on the back. Even the record has no indication of it being made in 2019.

The inner sleeve has small illustrations of different things, I'd say it is one step up from a basic inner sleeve. Although I might prefer an antistatic inner sleeve than this cardboard pocket.

The record itself is very pretty to look at, I would call the color a dark olive green, looking at the picture on the listing here, it looks lime green, my copy is way darker, with swirls. I like it.

When it comes to the quality of the sound, my copy was flawless when it came to the A-side, but upon switching to B-side, the skipping starts immedeatly, with 4+ skips on parish of space dust ALONE. The record is also a bit dirty with fragments of dust covering this side slightly more than the others. This really bothers me as Parish is my favorite song on this side.

WHY could the skipping not be on the yodel song.... why......oh god why!?!?!
No, it had to be on my favorite song, of course!

Although, glad I got it!

Got my copy today. When I removed the lp form it's sleeve it appeared to be a bit dirty. But dispite that, there were just a few skips and pops. I don't really mind that, all that matters to me now is that I have The Fall in my collection! Totally happy with the record! And nice colour too.

No warp or skipping on mine. A bit of unwanted surface noise, but nothing I can’t stand. I might’ve just been lucky enough to get a good copy. 🤷🏻‍♂️ For any interested buyers, I’d ask the seller to play test it and inform you of any warping. That’s probably the best option instead of just chancing it and buying a sealed copy.

I've had 2 copies of this and they both skip on "The Parish of Space Dust".

My copy is flawless. Happy to have this in my collection

My transition from Parish to Snakes has a gap and Joplin Spider ends too early, I’m considering replacing it

Well, I guess I was one of the lucky ones; my copy is flawless! Flat, clean, and no warps at all. Beautiful dark olive green record, too. Picked it up at Newbury Comics on RSD.

poor QC on this one - returned a dish warped copy to get a replacement...guess what...which was also dish warped!
