Juno has a repress dated 12 Feb 2019, hopefully this is better quality than those mentioned below!

Surface is fine and sounds good but is totally dished on side 2. A weight should help.

Just opened and played my copy - exactly the same "shocking" experience adorevinyl and zdkaiser describe. Obviously there are many copies of this reissue affected - this press is a shame! I would avoid buying this edition and try to catch the original ltd....somehow : /

Absolutely shocking press... I've had two copies and sent them both back. If they weren't sealed I would not believe them to be new, full of surface marks and play with lots of surface noise. Second one also got stuck on a loop on b-side and would not play hidden track as a result... I decided to clean it, in an attempt to fix the issue, it didn't fix the fault but revealed the record to be absolutely filthy... I've had cleaner records from car boot sales! Such a shame, I love this band and want a decent copy.... Third time lucky!?! 🤔.... I'm not sure if I'll bother!

I've gone through two copies. Both have had an abundance of fine lines and micro scratches even in a poly inner sleeve. Not the best pressing, an abundance of pops/clicks on my copy. Probably poor QC at the plant.

Great album that you can tell was mixed & mastered with love. Nice wide channel separation. It basically sounds like a live venue without an audience. Nice tight sound from every instrument and extremely good overall balance. The noise floor is just a little high and is the only thing keeping me from giving it an even better rating despite being generally unnoticeable outside of quieter passages - 8.5/10.

There is nothing coming with this edition. Only a heavy black record : no inner sleeve, no download code (what a pity) not even the band members name anywhere. No studio name, nothing. Well, I'm happy that I can finally listen to this record. Very nice production, sound and pressing though but the production of the second album is even better. That being said, here is very, very good.

Hmm. My copy was new but did not have the download code.

Otherwise a solid sound though I like the second LP even better.

Copies currently being sold for $20 on tour. If you think their albums are hot make sure you see ‘em live. Just caught a show last night and it was perfection! I’m hoping a live album or ep is in the works sometime soon...
