Mark Hollis ‎– Mark Hollis

Notes:
The sole solo album by former Talk Talk frontman Mark Hollis, released on January 26, 1998. Despite being released as a solo album by Hollis, it was originally intended to be credited to Talk Talk, under the name "Mountains of the Moon."

An early promotional CD-R retains both of these features; an early promotional cassette also retains the original title, but uses the finalized release's attribution of the album to Hollis alone.

I'm very happy with my copy. Of course it's not perfect, I have a few ticks here and there, but none of them detracted from my listening experience. Disc is dead flat, and both sides are properly centered, and it sounds amazing overall. Too bad for the faulty copies out there, extra care is required for this album during manufacturing.

If date of purchase matters, I got my copy from Boomkat on the 4th, it was probably the last copy before it immediately sold out, but now it's back again.

Listening to the second copy now. Had to take the first one back. This one is faulty too. Fuck the fuckers who did this.

One of the worst contemporary pressings I have heard - appalling - and on such a quiet record too - it is unbelievable - avoid

Of course Uni had to shove this off on Optimal. Their quality is slipping more and more by the year.

My copy has much to much background noice. But no pops and clicks though. I’ve cleaned with my Okki Nokki but it didn’t help. Lovely sound though.

Had 2 copies so far, recording is great
Pressing in full of pops & clips
Completely spoils the experience

My copy is flat and mostly noise free. It has a few ticks during the beginning of side A, but silent the rest of the way.

I have cleaned this twice with my Record Doctor and Side 2 still pops and clicks. The mastering is great, but I'm really frustrated with the pressing. Will clean once more and then send this back if it doesn't fix the issue. Too bad because I've had decent luck with Optimal in the past.

My copy is unplayable on Side 2. The cartridge is bouncing all over the place all the way across the entire side of the record. This is the first time I've had an LP with this sort of issue. Weird. Going back for a replacement and will report back.
