Universal should never have put these for sale. This is an expensive album but it hasn't been taken care of properly. On two copies already I found that the discs are hollow in the centre, meaning that if you play side two, the hole in the middle of the disc rises almost to the top of the centre spindle (classic Technics 1200). Same goes for the second disc.
