Why was this pressing removed for "Offensive Marketplace Item"?? Does anybody know? Seems arbitrary.

Mine sounds excellent. Pressing quality and mastering top notch. This was always one my favorite ones by the pumpkins. Nice to have on vinyl.

Can anyone shed some light on whether this Australian release had different pressings. Barcode Matrix etc all the same as this release, except my copy has a different hype sticker. Just a small rectangular black sticker with smashing pumpkins written in white lowercase typewriter style font? Cheers

I just started Side B with my copy I got from my local shop.
Once I got half a minute into Plume, I flew here to see if it was just me.

I will say just adjusting the bass/treble helps get rid of whatever they did.
It was like someone fell asleep on the bass dial, and it thus drowned out Billy's voice.

These are the levels that fixed Plume's issue for me, if it helps:
Bass @ - 4
Trebel @ an even 0.

But as I'm finishing Side B right now, most (if not all) of Side B just sounds "off",
but it's primarily Pissant & Hello Kitty Kat that have issues, possibly distortion? Idk.
(just as what mattmacneil mentioned in one of the below comments, back in 2015)

It's as if at the start of every track I need to adjust my stereo levels
to accommodate something completely different. D: UGH

But what is baffling is the pressing looks beautiful, nice gloss.
It didnt need to be cleaned right out of the shrink wrap
(which is rare, but I did anyways out of habit)

I guess I'll bounce over to the EU version ...
to see if its got the same problems being reported, and cross my fingers
my local shop will take pity on me & at least give me a credit for instore use. lol

just bought a nm copy of this for EUR 60 when visiting Rome. after arriving home in Vienna and playing the perfect looking yellow-transparent vinyl on my system, turns out there is surface noise throughout both sides, from beginning to end. it doesn't even stop for a sec. while the general sound an mastering of this press is very good (much better than the cd actually) and there are no pops or ticks throughout play, the high amount of surfoice noise is a real turn off. While its ok on the loud tracks, acoustic tracks like soothe or landslide truly suffer from this. I wonder - did I get a bad or worn out pressing of the first Pisces Iscariot LP and was fooled by its proclaimed "near mint" condition, or were all copies of this press rather "noisy" in terms of surface noise?

Does Whir sound "watery" to anyone else? No other issues I can hear?

The heavier songs like Pissant and Hello Kitty Kat sound pretty distorted, but everything else sounds good.
