In my version of the vinyl (EU) there was a great photo picture of PJ Harvey inside. Anybody know something about this ?

I just bought the US pressing, it is pressed from the same ‘JONZ’ mastering, but the vinyl I found was without the unacceptable levels of noise that the GZ copy has. I recommend it if you find the EU copy too noisy.

Bought the vinyl version on a whim as I like this album so much. After reading some reviews and comments I didn't have very high expectations and when I got it home it was by far the dirtiest new record I have ever seen... covered in dust and sleeve shavings. I cleaned it before playing (vinyl revival) and too my surprise it sounded really good! A nice well mastered dynamic recording.....there were 4 really loud pops on the third track, which turned out to be a lump of glue!......cleaning again removed this and now it plays fine with hardly any surface noise. Packaging is good, card inner sleeve with photo of the band and song lyrics. I would recommend, but be prepared to clean! 5 stars for the music, 3 stars for the vinyl, though it goes to 4 stars after cleaning.

Fine recording and music, but bad pressing. Too many crackles. Record was more than averagely warped. Have it returned.
