Disappointed with my Deluxe version too. Listening to it for maybe the third
time.. super crackly and an overall quite average sound quality. Packaging is beautiful though.

One of my favorite albums of all time.
I was a bit disappointed by the quality of the specific copy that I have. There are many cracks and pops throughout; however, it is a huge improvement over the hideous Newbury Comics version.
Vinyl-wise, I much prefer the S/T and LtP copies that I own over this.

Unfortunately my copy of this record is somewhat disappointing. It's a little noisy throughout and while the SQ is acceptable, I expected better from a 45rpm edition. Still a cracking album though!

Not the biggest fan in the world of the mastering job on this album overall, but I will concur with the rest of the commenters that this is a fantastic cut of an album that has stood up for 3 years anyway as a modern classic. Easily Homme's finest work.

Outstanding version of this record. Excellent sound in excellent packaging. If you can you buy it.

This version (the deluxe 180 gram) is one of my best sounding records. I have quite a few so I don't say (write) this lightly. Off the top of my head, the only better sounding record I own is the reissue of Tom Waits' Mule Variations, and that one my friends, is perfection (as close as this format can afford, anyhow.)

The version I have is too high at 45 and way too low at 33. The pressing is crazy sounding and at least a half a step too high when played at 45 compared to my mp3 versions. Anyone else had this issue?

The deluxe heavyweight edition of Queens of the Stone Age's 'Like Clockwork' is highly recommended by myself. I would also say that it is easily one of the best sounding records in my rapidly expanding collection. You may well have to pay a bit of extra money for it; indeed I did. However, I would advise to not let that put you off in the slightest. With the heavyweight edition, you get the LP in an extra thick cover, a booklet with lyrics fixed into the gatefold and the record on double LP, which is a thing of beauty.

Sound wise, the record is absolutely perfect, easily one of the best in my collection, if not the best! I feel it is this feature that will be worth your hard earned extra money alone. So, to conclude, what are you waiting for? Make that purchase. Enjoy.

Hope this review helps. Thank you for reading.

This is probably the best sounding vinyl I have in my collection. The presentation of the deluxe edition is truly worth the extra money I paid. It's as if I've received a modern adaptation of some cult classic movie, fresh from the reels. A beautiful thing to behold, especially with the ten tracks that comprise one of the best albums of the year.

Is it worth the money for this versus the standard version? I'm quite a fan of tip on covers and 180g vinyl, and that booklet looks amazing, but I'm wondering if it's worth the extra $15 or so it would cost me.
