My disc 2 is not (light)grey, but white.
Sound quality of first disc is fair, got background noise like a cassette tape without dolby :-)
Second disc sounds better.

My copy is perfect, I also compared it to my peacefrog 2005 copy!

horrible horrible sound issues with my copy as well, was looking forward to this oh well go back to store

Has anyone received a copy without noticeable background noise or ticks?


November 24, 2018
Mine has a scratch on the first track that pops for firt 10 seconds and then again during the chorus, most of the rest of side a has a few pops here and there, side b much cleaner, sides c and d no issues. Crazy

Yes, a lot of surface noise on sides C and D. I would say it's more than minor. Unfortunate as the songs are acoustic and mellow so surface noise is very noticeable. Great album. Maybe avoid this pressing?

Any sound issues on anyone's copy? Mine has some fairly consistent minor surface noise and some "ripping" tics on revolutions on early side C.

Color on the first disc is beautiful, wishing the second disc had the same color. Sounds good so far. This album still holds up after 1t years of on and off obsession. Acoustic folk that comes off very much like soothing ambient music.
