If I'm not mistaken, Trent Reznor reacted on Twitter or somewhere when this version was released saying that he was not behind this reissue. It sounded like if he didn't want us to buy it. Someone remembers this?

Not sure if this pressing just sounds rough, or if the album just sounds that way normally. Haven't spent enough time listening to a digital version to compare. Also looking into wether or not Closer ended up being pressed or mixed at a slightly different speed than the original. Something about it sounded off.

Bought this same version twice. With first purchase thought it was just a scratch on an otherwise dynamic and beautiful vinyl recording. Both versions purchased on Discogs from two unrelated stores in separate parts of the country. The song 'Hurt' skips and often stops.
Bought & received today, 2nd copy... Identical problem! I'll keep it after this, great song but I have it on digital. Sad, but makes this version unusual.... Surely I'm not the only?

Deadwax info is wrong. Side 2 has WG/NRP for some reason? The rest have Kevin Gray initials as given here.

Trent's best album by a country mile. Outstanding journey into human frailty, self loathing, pain, hate and triumph perfectly encapsulated. Was groundbreaking and still remains a tour de force musically regardless of what genre ppl choose to hate this album upon. Essential.

I don't know if I got a bad print, but I have this back to black version, and it sounds amazing except for side B. Side B is bad. It pops loss a lot. I've read so many good things about this version, so maybe I will pick another up and compare, but my side B is really bad.

Anyone else experience these issues?
