Added (The March 2019 release).
Please let me know if all is OK ;)

My copy purchased Feb. 2019 sounds great. Either they did a new pressing, or I got lucky.

Is there any difference between the first and the second pressing now? Maybe better pressing quality?


January 31, 2019
My copy is a bit warped but sounds just fine. I guess I'm just lucky.

Repress coming March 2019. My copy is pretty good, requires cranking up the amp a bit though.

I am pretty sure this is United Record Pressing's usual hack job. The download code is redeemable at '' and the vinyl is very much as awful as anything they do: off-center and dimpled. There is no way they should be entrusted with any release, much less one associated with the venerable Impulse! imprint.

I was about to buy this off Amazon but after reading all of the comments I think I'll give it a miss.

Both lp's have pressing defects, gf is dented inside. Another example of lacking quality controls these days. A shame.

My pressing does not have any manufacturing defects, but after reading some reviews of this pressing I decided to do a listening test. I listened to the record and then the same track on Spotify and unfortunately it was immediately evident that you're better off just streaming this record. It's crazy how much better of an album this is than the vinyl would allow you to experience. What a shame.

As soon as I saw the words "Universal Music Distribution" and the FBI warning on the back I knew what this would be like but being a glass half full kind of person and against my better judgement I bought this. Universal In the United States should be ashamed at the poor pressing standards at their pressing plant (I can't imagine there is more than one). Every single person associated with the manufacture of these records should be embarassed at what they churn out. My copy had every single manufacturing flaw you can inflict on a record. Both LPs were warped, scratched, dirty and pock marked like the surface of an asteroid. The labels were torn and off center and the records appeared to have some sort of sandblasted, dull sheen to them. Universal in the US do not know how to manufacture records. Not one LP I have ever bought and manufactured by them has had even a modicum of quality control associated with it. Don't waste your money on this turd of a pressing; it is awful.
