distorted, continuously crackling sound in the right channel on 4 copies tested. this release seems to be one big missprint unfortunately. and I see I’m not alone having the same problem. it’s really pitty, love this excellent album and have been waiting for a long time for repress. hope tgere will be correct reissue i future.

Solid Press and good album, not closer to Mezzanine or Blue Lines but certainly worth having.

Horrible crackle and distortion on right channel, especially in the beginning of each side, even after ultra sonic cleaning. No same problem with other records so it is just this pressing. (My set up:Audio Note Three turntable + Audio Note IOII MC cartridge) Too bad as the music is great and cover too.

Amazing reissue, packaging, sound, dynamics, been waiting for this a long time. Initial track "Pray for rain" sounds the band is playing in your living room, grab this while you can.

Paradise circus back ground is very distorted . As with other tracks .. Had to recheck my stylus as I thought it was fluff causing this .... bad pressing.

Got my copy from Canada but looks like my cart was jumping on every first track on each side like crazy, skipping etc... So, I got a replacement and this happened again :) Third item is on the way. I can't just stay without this album on wax so I'm trying to find a good copy for my collection. Also, my cart is Benz LP on VPI Scout and setup fine. Table is leveled. Has anyone noticed the same issue? Hope it's not a bad batch that amazon.ca got.
