My RSD copy has been sitting on a shelf as I just couldn't take the sibilance/distortion on Unknown Legend and a few other spots, but I upgraded my stylus from the Ortofon 2m Red to Blue and it is so much better.

44/16!?!?! WHY? This comment doesn't need ten words, just: "44/16"

My copy doesn't have any of the faulty issues some others have described. Love it.

Decent quality overall, some background noise but hoping it plays itself out after several spins. Yes, it’s apparent that it’s not sourced from analog tapes like most of the other Neil Young archive series pressings, but it’s still very solid. Some of the natural organic qualities aren’t quite there due to digital recording, but if this was an album by any number of other artists we’d all be praising it for the fidelity.

Very annoying skip in unknown legend at the beginning of the first chorus she rides a ha.. Then skip.. Does it again later in the song but no other skips on album. Disappointed anyone else have one with skips?

Sounds a little too tinny and hollow for my taste. Neil's voice sounds a little distant, a little thin, a little compressed at times but that could be due to the digital source material. That being said, given that a high res digital file was used to master this release it sounds as good as it can for not being cut from analog. My copy has no pressing flaws, plays dead quiet and centered but the sound is muddy, lacking clarity, like digital on vinyl sounds.

Pre-order is up at acoustic sounds; don't think this release was limited to RSD.

My version seems a bit noisy (vinyl noise, not from recording). Curious as to what others experience,
