The sound quality is terrible, very noisy. Firelink Shrine, my favorite track, is so spoiled by noise that I can't enjoy it.
I'm giving it 2 stars because it still has some value for those who love the game, like me.

Without an official statement on the vinyl all Im left to look at is the Matrix runout. From that I can pretty safely tell that it was pressed at GZ media, one of Europes biggest pressing companies and the mastering was done at GS mastering and post. This is why it gets complaints, there is little care put in, the cheapest alternatives were used and they just ride on the name Dark Souls to sell.

Have to say, for my first purchase from SPACELAB and owning one of the 100 pressings of the Blue Eye Orb variant, they're not winning me over with this copy. My set is rather flawed. There's clearly audio degradation on the later tracks on all sides of each disc, and I'm unlucky enough to have near-unfixable skipping by the end of Side A. Note: Near. It can be somewhat resolved by scratching through the grooves via toothpick, but the skipping does occur; only less frequently. I suppose it's a fallacy baked into the vinyl, not so much the dust, dirt or whatever's blocking the grooves. SPACELAB did help out with replacement copies, but from what I got, they sound worse.

I learned quite a lesson from this as a first-time record consumer to never get suckered into these limited edition variants if they don't meet the vinyl quality worthy of their sell.
