My pressing sounds fantastic, nice and loud but not a lot of surface noises not even on Something I Can Never Have. Skipped once but I cleaned it and it was gone. Only complaint is that the bass isn't as loud as it should be. Otherwise.. if you find this cheap.. take the chance.

My copy sounds great. There are no skips in any track.

I'm having the exact same problems as everyone else with the UMe pressing. "Head Like a Hole" skips during every chorus which is a real shame since that's one of the best songs on the album IMO. I don't have much in the way of a high-end audiophile vinyl setup at all, but the overall sound is just not as good compared to my old CD version in several ways.

There seems to be something a little off with the pitch and the speed, some people have said that a lot of these were pressed off-center so that might be the cause. Also, it seems like the bass is almost entirely nonexistant in several key places such as the beginning of "Sanctified" and a lot of "Terrrible Lie".

All in all, I'd say this pressing is a waste of money which is a damn shame considering what a cool album this is. I'll be returning this ASAP.

So. I bought 3 copies of this version and I have some infos :
1. UMe version with the B side skipping a lot on every track. I returned it.
2. UMe version with Head Like a Hole skipping about 20 times. After a lot of scratching on the problem areas, i "cleaned" the skipping problem on a lot of parts, but 3 skippings (1 looped) remained. I returned it.

3. Bicycle version. Yes there is another version with the same barcode. there is a bicycle logo instead of UMe on the back of the sleeve. This press is heavier (obviously 180g). And the sound is better. No skipping problem at all. But there is another problem (this press can't be perfect...) "Something I can never have" has a poor sound, some distorsion on the voice (some "s" words) and loud parts.

In conclusion, if you want to buy this version, go for the Bicycle logo not the UMe one. But it is not a perfect version for this album. It's just a cheap one (10€ for me, worth the price).

I'm having the same skip issues on Head Like a Hole. Stay away from this press. Only paid $15 for it though so I'm not THAT mad.

Head like a hole skips in the same spots no matter what. The rest sounds awesome! Glad to hear it's this pressing and not our TT. Great album!

My first pressing of this release was really noisy and had a deep scratch on side A. Went back and picked up a replacement that's pristine and super quiet. The replacement came from a different store location. My guess is that there are good and bad batches.

Both my friend and I have this same pressing and they both skip so much they're impossible to listen to. Don't waste your $14 (the price at our local record store) and buy the remastered 2xLP version. That one sounds great, has a bonus track, and is definitely authorized by Reznor while I would assume this pressing isn't.

The lp is very quiet and the bass has no hit to it its really annoying because you know how its supose to sound but this one doesnt live up to what you want it to be dont buy this one im going to ethier give mine away or hang it up. Otherwise love the album as usual just the pressing really sucked.
