Forgot to post this, but back in November I asked Low on twitter if there were any plans to repress "I Could Live In Hope" on vinyl, and they replied with this:
"Maybe in the next year..." followed by a space invader emoji. https://twitter.com/lowtheband/status/1062965056684613634

So just hold off on buying from the resellers for now. There's a decent chance that this album will get the 25th anniversary treatment.

Is there really any difference between this CD and the one posted as Low - I Could Live In Hope - The numbers claim to be different on the other listing but there are no photos and I've never seen those numbers on that release. If folks could merge those that would be great!

Okay. I'm randomly just browsing through Discogs and I decided to check out Low and specific issues of their albums.
My eyes almost bulged out of my head over the fact I see this going for at thew lowest (no pun intended) of $130 to $180!
I bought this years over five years ago at an HMV for around $35 or just a little over!

Ok so it came. This pressing is absolutely fine, sounds great. I have a good cart and can't notice what people say about the S's in slide. very worth picking up. Score 1 for Plain records, just 1 tho.

as far as plain recordings go, this one isn't too bad.

Aside from the sibilance issue on "Slide", the rest of the album actually sounds pretty good on my setup. This is the only Plain record I've heard that doesn't sound like total garbage. Glad I picked it up new for $24 seeing as it's going for $100+ these days.
