The noise on this record is intentional. if you can force yourself to sample a digital version you will hear this. However, my US version is in fact is flawed. Side D has a serious blister at the end and severely whaps . Since the record resurgence and renewal of pressing operations have been put on a fast track to keep up with demand, resulting in poor quality control. I hope that this improves. My observations conclude that 1 in 5 records in the past year are flawed.

My US copy is very noisy. Overall sound is very good, but lots of pops and crackles even after cleaning. And indeed, a groove at the end of Side B is locked.

I just bought this and it does not include a download code even though it says so on the sticker. Personally I don't care, but just a warning if some do. Also, my copy on XL sounds great for what it's worth.

I have the US version on XL and it does not sound awful like another reviewer pointed out. Very clean and crisp. Great release.

The US version on XL sounds pretty awful. Pick up the Euro version, if possible.

Side B has a locked groove at the end.
