Unfortunately I didn't read this page in time. Disappointed that my brand new, sealed copy also has a lot of pops and cracks on the b-side. it's really annoying. I'm not a stickler about this kind of stuff, but it detracts a lot from the music so much so I have a really hard time enjoying the record. Don't purchase this

Pops throughout first half of side B here, pretty annoying :( Good pressing other than that.

Excellent pressing. Beautiful sound, quiet, lush. What more can you ask for?

My copy of LP PFLP 006 WRWTFWW019 also very quiet, no pops. Seems I got lucky.

I purchased Through The Looking Glass (LP, Album, RE) PFLP 006, WRWTFWW019
It plays very well but not perfectly. It is easy to be swept away in the music, but there are consistent background pops. My copy was sealed. The music itself seems fine and of proper range and depth. Basically a brand-spanking-new record sounds like it's already been owned a while. I cleaned it with fluid and a dust bar. It sounds the same, neither improved nor harmed. I like the album quite a bit. The presentation is fine. The music is lovely. It maaaaaay be better to get this on CD, but I don't own a CD player.

I bought it new on release day and the first 10 minutes of side B are unlistenable. There's constant loud crackles/distortions throughout that completely distract from the music. I can't see any scratches on the record itself so it has to be down to the pressing. Has anyone here had any luck getting a replacement copy sent, or am I asking too much?

Just picked this up. No pressing problems. Sounds beautiful and quiet.


January 19, 2018
my copy is perfect too. And it sounds very good too.

Maybe I'm lucky (probably), maybe they've fixed the problems, maybe other commenters are overreacting, but my copy sounds wonderful. Very silent vinyl for what is often very quiet music. A couple very small pops, a couple very small clicks, but no distortion, well mastered, very nice packaging. Would reccomend, but make sure you get it from a place with a good return policy lol

My copy only has one pop on side A. I knew what I was going to get when I bought it because the seller had already opened and listened to the LP. I recommend potential buyers to try and get a used copy, otherwise, you won't know what kind of condition the LP is in. Because of this reissue's mediocre quality, I'd rather not take chances with an unused copy.
