Firstly I think this album is modern masterpiece! I can understand why some fans don't like or even hate this record, but I love it. To me it very much still sounds like a QOTSA album, but has just the right dose of modern swagger thanks to Mark Ronson.
As far as this pressing goes, mine sounds great, perfect even. The mastering job is superb. Thankfully CB hasn't tried to win the loudness war instead he's mastered the record so everything is where it should be musically and the soundstage is first class. It almost sounds like a different album compared to the digital version, which I was impressed with, but this pressing is in a class of it's own.
The prints and transfers (I think they're transfers?) which come in the package are cool too!

Wow. The sound quality is suprisingly good on this. And the deluxe version package and prints alltogether are cool.

LP1 of my copy is a nightmare. Noisy all the way through. Looks fine, sounds like absolute crap. I'm serious, it's an insult. LP2 is perfect as you would expect from Pallas. Which makes it even more frustrating. I just dont get it. Will try to get a replacement. Hope this is an exception. I mean, if even Pallas is not a guarantee for quality anymore, what's the point? Why do I order expensive deluxe crap and they deliver THIS? Not recommended.

edit: Matador UK sent me a european blue Indie version (standard 140g LPs) as a replacement until they can replace my broken Deluxe (the Deluxe is sold out for now). Firstly, I have to say: GREAT customer service, very friendly and helpful guys. And secondly: there's absolutely nothing wrong with the standard LP. At least the one I got now is not noisy at all, it's flat and it sounds terrific! Props to Optimal, I didnt see that coming.

If the alt.cover is 7000 limited? How limited is this?

Wow! Amazing packaging and art work. High quality pressings. When they advertised this as deluxe they weren't lying. Get this version. You will not be disappointed.

Awesome packaging to an awesome album that is pressed awesomely, again, by Pallas. Brilliant!


August 25, 2017
Well worth the extra for the deluxe. What a mighty package. Don't sleep on this one. Sounds great, looks great.

What a brilliant album this is. I picked this up at the record store today and was blown away by the first listen. The quality of the pressing is fantastic, one of the best sounding records I own, you cannot go wrong with the deluxe!
