If you're on the fence about buying the LP because of record quality issues, I wouldn't be. My copy has surface noise. Normally this kinda thing on a new LP would drive me nuts and I'd take the hit; sell it right back to the record store for store credit.

None of that matters; this record is too good to not own and not play over and over and over. It's a modern day masterpiece, bottom line, end of story. You will not regret this purchase. It is required ownership for soul/jazz/funk lovers of all inclinations.

I think I got lucky with my copy. The whole album sounds incredible on wax. High quality pressing and a high quality album!

Saw all the reviews complaining about quality, but I guess I lucked out as well. Got a copy from my local record store yesterday and it sounds great. No surface noise or defects.

I must have gotten lucky with my copy. Not a single scratch and the there is little to no surface noise.

I'm on my third copy from amazon, all have surface noise and one had a glue/resin drop on disc one.
Three bad ones in a row are unlikely unless there were quality control issues---kamasi deserved better.

Awful surface noise throughout, quality music as this deserves better pressing

I might be one of the lucky ones that has a very clean copy. It's not uncommon for new records to have dust on them. Factories are dirty places. If you want pristine sound, take your records to be professionally cleaned. It's worth it for shit as majestic as this.

Gorgeous music. My copy is next to pristine, with only a single, next-to-silent instance of periodic clicking at the end of side D. Sounds amazing.

My brand new copy came with dust, scuffs and minor scratches on all 3 LPs. Sounds very good overall, but there is some surface noise on most sides. Brainfeeder seriously needs to get their sh*t together.
