I went through three copies before giving up. My US pressing from Concord Music Group has excessive surface noise and non-fill distortion on both sides. This is an overall poor pressing. The mastering also sounds overly compressed and lacks in dynamics and a clear sound stage. This may be a case where you're better off with the CD.

So...for the most part there are copies of this out there that do sound good, but has anyone come across one without IGD and a general loss of top-end during B6? It's enough to be a significant distraction from the music during at least the "clouds floating by" passage that should be the climax of the album, and the "no one will ever know" coda. I've had four copies of the album and a couple of replacement styli through my hands since this record was released so I'm pretty sure it's a widespread pressing defect, not a one-off or a problem with my system (my hundreds of other records by and large aren't affected). I'm just holding out for a repress as it's maybe my favourite PSB song of the decade. :(

Very good album. I have this on vinyl and cd. The cd version is mastered excellently, but the vinyl version just does not sound right. I had 2 copies, one extremely warped one that skipped (which i returned) and the one I currently have. The first tracks sound good, but after the 3rd track, if has too much IGD, even with a new cartridge and having it properly set up. It needs a repress on black vinyl, because this version just sounds awful.

I must have got lucky with my white copy purchased from here for 12 pounds - this is a lush sounding record with superb sonics. After a few so-so albums over the past ten years, 'Super' is a solid return to form for the Pets with witty lyrics and cunning basslines - superb album :)

I got my copy from Amazon and it sounds amazing! No skips, no distortion.

Been playing great for me. Sounds wonderful on vinyl. There is a lushness to it when listened to it this way that actually gives the electronics a weirdly organic feel. Just my opinion anyway.

I'm playing my copy of Super with a Stanton 680 HP with weight at 1.5. No issues at all.
It's not a cheap pressing, but I don't think it feels like a 180 Gram LP.

Got my second copy. Same issue of non-fill on the first 2 tracks. I gave up listening after that. Going to stick to digital on this. Hopefully they repress, and not on coloured vinyl.
