Ok. I own the Flac and this limited edition vinyl. The vinyl was terrible, sounded boomy, blurry, muffled. Zero clarity. And it is obviously not the production because the digital album sounds perfect. I used the spin clean as suggested and still not right. I checked here later for the reviews and one post mentioned they had to clean it 4 or 5 times before the pressing came alive.

I felt I had nothing to lose and mounted this bad boy on to a drill and spin cleaned the bananas out of it. I played it and it sounded marginally better but not great, however, after inspecting the stylus after a full play, there was a crazy amount of gunk on it, almost like a resin. I would play, wash, play, wash and no joke, this thing came to life. The aggressive spin clean must have loosened this goop just enough that the stylus finally dug it all out. It’s Sad that this terrific album was released like this and all its potential buried under a layer crud.

My copy sounds perfectly clean. No popping or cracking anywhere.

Great album, terrific compositions, well mixed.

TERRIBLE sound from the LP on first plays. Turns out it was VERY VERY dirty with some sort of stubborn greasy substance. I've got side A playing well now after four washes. Side B has been repeatedly cleaned. The stylus is now ploughing out a sticky black goo on the current play so I seem to have loosened what ever was stuck there. A few more cleans required I think. I can buy cleaner vinyl from a charity shop! Should something sealed in clingwrap not be cleaner than this? Most people, it seems, don't know that under the dirt they might have an excellent LP and are complaining (see comments). If you have a dead, poppy copy of this I recommend deep cleaning.

Would love to read your reviews of this Japan SHM-CD's sonics. Anyone A-B it with any of its digital counterparts - CD, WAV download, FLAC download, or even the various vinyl issues? Thnx

It´s a pitty and quite annoying, the pressing is really the lowest possible quality..pops and crackles on all four sides.
How can someone create such a beauty album and put such rubbish vinyl into it??

Well it turns out that I'm not the only one that is concerned about all the crackles and pops in this release. At least is a great album.

Isn't just in a gatefold where it's in? Why use another term when it the same as when it is on vinyl.

Wash your vinyl! Even before the first listen! If you’re not using at least a “Spin Clean” type method, you’ll never be happy. My Deluxe copy is fantastic. Minimal surface noise and decent soundstage. The only problem with the mix is that it extends through all formats.
