no problem at all with this pressing (european). excellent album though a little bit too expected music from waters. in french we would say « un peu téléphoné  ». brilliant production

always the same frustration: us-releases better sound but poor pressing... eu-releases the opposite... can somebody confirm, that he has a clean us without surface noise and crackling?

Does anyone know about a misprint of this vinyl lp?
I have the european version (88985 43649 1 5) and the side A label is none existent and instead it has the side B label.
So vinyl one has double side B labelling
Can anybody explain this?

I have opened 4 different copies, all of them had scruffs and damage.. and the asshole at sony music, tells me that is is like never happening.... somebody at the press factory should loose their job...

Still has fire in his belly!!!! I love this album - Deja Vu is simply amazingly, everything you can expect from Mr Waters and more!!!

On my disks the one with side A and B has the label with side C and side D glued on it (Made in EU) - somebody has the same issue?
Nice album, nice recording and engineering with a little bit too much overall compression / limiting.

Another bullshit from Mr. Waters. As writer duo Mr. Waters & Mr. Gilmour good, solo unbearable. When he sings I mean he would have been constipated.

I've seen 4 copies of this vinyl and all of them had scuffing on the second disc. My third copy plays though without problems on the scuffing marks, while the first had scratch noises passing over the marks. It's the luck of the draw with this pressing. Open your copy up before leaving shop. It will be very difficult selling any of these pressings as Near Mint second hand.
