purchased a copy of the 2018 (?) re-cut a few weeks back - sounds great!
nice and punchy, no complaints to speak of - i suggest double checking, and checking again, the setup of your turntable if you're still having problems. what a treat to be able to finally own this record either way.

No punch in 2018 repress, sounds quieter, narrower and overall feeble compared to 2017. Pretty sure it was remastered and reissued, not repressed. I kept the faulty '17 version, it sounds awesomely raw, wide and loud, despite the distortion on one track. Has anyone else had a chance to compare these two, track by track? Or was it my bad luck again?

Mine says 17309 2B, instead of 1B in the runout. I have the same on all four runouts (2 instead of 1 but with the corresponding letter for the side) The barcode and cat number are correct - anyone else have this variation?

No distortion in the 2018 repress! Sound quality is close to perfect. Both records are slightly off center. It's not audible. Quality control department shouldn't really be letting off-center records out of the factory.

My copy has none of the mentioned defects, no distortion or rips to be heard on any side. It's a pretty average pressing, a few clicks fresh out of the sleeve. But nothing like non-fill or worn stampers. Bought it new back in the spring. Must've gotten an early copy or something. But there's probably more good copies than defective ones.

Surprised to see this is now a $40 record. Don't be a dummy and get scalped on a momentarily out of print album. Warp kept on pressing new Boards of Canadas to meet demand.

Reader's Digest ~

Warp had a lot of problems pressing clean-sounding copies of some of the Boards re-releases, especially Geogaddi.
Now I read complaints below of pressing issues here. Sad because this Lifestyles Of The Laptop Cafe release is literally my most wanted reissue ever. (I'd attempted several times throughout the previous decade to get a copy on eBay but my bids were always just a few dollars short of the final price. And after it hit $100+ I just gave up entirely.)

So...
HOW DOES THIS LATEST PRESSING SOUND !?! Is it relatively noise-free?

Yeah D2 sounds like S H * T. Didn't bother listening to B1.
WHY THE F*CK HAS WARP NOT RECUT THIS AND OFFERED REPLACEMENTS !?!!?!?
THEY SHOULD HAVE NEVER APPROVED THE TEST PRESSINGS TO BEGIN WITH.
SHAME ON YOU WARP RECORDS !!!
YOU SPOILED THE POTENTIALLY GREATEST REISSUE OF THIS DECADE.
