My first copy had a ton of pops on it and had a good amount of noise. I cleaned it throughly and still this pressing just sounds noisy. Checked my cartridge alignment all is in spec. They sent me a replacement but that copy is noisy as hell too! I have several other records from kscope that are clean and no noise just these porcupine releases. I have a friend who had the same exact issue.

I have the clear and everything says 982, including runout etching. This issue is brilliant, I always felt my Lava CD version was fantastic, but this blows it away. SW really did a super job on the remix.....The bass has meat and potatoes and the atmospheric sounds are all over the room......Love it. Hopefully In Absentia is similar

Someone knows the limited pressing number for this clear pressing ?


March 12, 2018
I have the clear vinyl version. And the spine, label and sticker on the front only mention Kscope982 as catalogue number. I don't see 986 anywhere?

I too have received the black cover for the clear vinyl. Wouldn't have even noticed it if it wasn't for the sharp eye of others. As for the sound-after the initial playing I prefer my GOD blue vinyl better. The clear vinyl had a few more pops and I had to turn up the volume higher.

Clear issue cost 19.99GBP plus approx 5-12GBP for postage cost when pre ordered, how in the f&^% can they sell it just 2 days after release at 60 to 100 euro?Give us a break!

Anyone else's version arrived heavily creased? Mine looks like someone's sat on it or something! Really pissed off - and has to be said this isn't the first time this has happened from Burning Shed...

I have received this album from Kscope mail order. Originally I have checked the back cover for the catalogue number and there was: Kscope986. As I was checking the album out I noticed that Sticker and vinyl labels have Kscope982 printed instead.

I have raised this with Kscope and they replied that this was a packaging mistake (gatefold used from the black vinyl version) and they will forward to me the correct gatefold.

As such, I suggest all owners to check their gatefold for correct catalogue number.

Oh my god, what a pressing! I haven't even played it yet, but even only after having unpacked it I have to post this as I'm really blown away by how solid and beautiful this repress is. And the clear vinyl? Might be the most beautiful in my collection. Also the sleeves, the gatefold, the artwork itself... Well, OK, I'm off to giving this beauty its first spin + headphones. Can't wait.

Sounds fantastic! Now the waiting on the In Absentia White LP begins, hopefully it is as good as this one.
