I was getting warned. But I deceided to buy the 3-LP-Set.
It was brandnew and factory sealed. The Vinyl shows marks and whith white veiling all over. 1 LP is little warped.
Where was the quality control ? Drunken or asleep ?
Besides this, the positive:
The Vinyl sound quality is really excellent ! Only very little baclground noise in silent passages.
All 6 sides are enjoyable.
Perfect mastering.

Came with the correct albums. Music is uniformly excellent and well-mastered. Vinyl pressing quality is above average. Side 4 has some occasional surface noise but nothing deal-breaking. That said, pressing plants need to focus more on quality control. I have the feeling I got lucky with a decent pressing.

Bought a copy and its missing LP3 but has two copies of LP2. I returned it for another one and this one has the same issue! Two copies of LP2. Also vinyl does not look clean for both separate copies.

Horrible pressing, but the sound behind pops and crackles seems to be quite good. Its a shame, they ruin their fine and complex mastering work with an idiotic low quality pressing.

I have three new iterations of this lp including this "complete masters" 3 disc set And each one is a terrible pressing and very frustrating to attempt a listen. Really makes me wonder why? Especially the quiet section between part 1 acknowledgement and part 2 resolution. The noise floor is inexcusable. The visible marks and marring on the pressing leave one wondering if there were any quality control at all during the pressing. (Did I mention the warp as a bonus?) Guess I'll just continue to enjoy it in the digital format, but a well pressed vinyl sure would be lovely to have.

Any comments on the overall sound and pressing quality?? Any idea where this was pressed?

Thanks in advance!

I just bought this record sealed, I kid you not, I open it up and its missing the 2nd and 3rd LP. Only contained the 1st LP. The second insert sleeve was completely empty. WTF?! Luckily, the seller was super cool and opened another copy they had and sent the replacements. But man, how does this happen?
