This sounds awesome, though there's a ton of sibilance on my copy which sucks.

My copy came with a lot of scratches and some kind of residual blue plastic dust,unfortunately.Haven't played it yet though
It's a beautiful piece,but with all the problems I'm not sure it's that worth it.I only bought it because I really like Lorde and Melodrama is a fantastic album,besides being a gorgeous vinyl.

I finally received my copy from Amazon today (7/31/2018). It had been on backorder for so many months I had forgotten all about it. Noticed it was pressed by Cheesy (GZ) Media so I was immediately alarmed at what I was expecting to hear-- the usual mix of loud random pops and non-fill distortions that they have become so well-known for over the years. What a surprise! GZ actually did a good job on this baby! The mastering is solid, a great overall pressing. Very nice packaging including a Stoughton tip-on gatefold jacket, lyrics booklet and set of art prints. This is well worth owning if you like Lorde. I always machine clean new records and resleeve before playing. Not doing this is a common reason for complaints about surface noise.

the deluxe blue version was pulled and repressed by the record label. the final version is perfection, not a skip or scratch...of course, i'm not sure if you're buying secondhand how you'd know what version you were getting. I didn't receive mine until mid-july 2018.

There's little to no surface noise on my LP, it's quite punchy, dynamic, the tracks breathe it seems.
I have the standard version, I compared them... the difference is minimal: the deluxe version has more punch added to it also it is a bit clear in terms of master layering of the tracks which makes sibilance invalid on my LP.
Though both LPs have a few pops on certain tracks.

Minor ticks and pops along the way but the pressing is beautiful in terms of clear vocal reachability, crisp and just about dynamic beats... My copy is almost flawless.

tight and punchy bass, clear highs and no surface noise at all. no sibilance, even on the inner tracks that feature heavy vocals and a lot of "S" sounds. 10/10, great mastering and pressing. super impressed. this is how pop vinyl should be done.

Definitely required some cleaning and anti-static brushing after opening, but sounds great! It's full and punchy but everything still sounds very clear. I'm hearing a lot that I never noticed when just streaming it-- this pressing sounds surprisingly organic for such a digital-sounding album. No skips or pops on my copy and only minimal surface noise. The worst thing I can say about it is that the bass response could be a little better, but it's still satisfying.

However, for a record retailing for >$25, the overall package feels pretty cheap. The vinyl isn't very heavy, the outer sleeve is unusually flimsy (no gatefold like Pure Heroine), and the printed inner sleeve is thin and clung to the record with so much static that I thought I wouldn't be able to pull it out without ripping the sleeve. Hopefully these are not issues with the deluxe edition.

I bought the deluxe edition of Melodrama from SoundStageDirect.com and I am always satisfied with how they package the records. The sound on the vinyl was massive and very clean. The packaging is really nice with the 6 photographed inserts and the lyrics booklets. To others complaining about the sound, perhaps clean the vinyl with a record cleaning solution and a brush.
