I'm sorry, I was referring to DIW #45 and not to the CD. Cover does look rough, and the gate does not fold very well. Are they all gatefold?

Äh, mine has a gatefold sleeve with a barcode sticker on the back (9 999109 something). Is this a different version? Doesn't anybody have a gatefold sleeve?
There should be a decent repress. I will sell as soon as there is. Capitol did manage with Mazzy Star, didn't they? So there's probably hope.

Curious if anyone feels that the sleeve on the Devil In The Woods lp looks rough and chunky – as if it wasn't created to fit the size of an lp and was blow-up, making it look blurry and not as sharp as the art could be? I love the sound of the record by have always been disappointed in the reproduction of the cover/sleeve.

This is a superb pressing. Although just over an hour of music is squeezed onto a single LP (10 minutes more than the Plain reissues, by the way) sound quality is top notch throughout, which is no surprise considering Kevin Grey mastered this original release. The pressing is also really clean and quiet, which very important considering quiet much of the music is. As with the other Sparklehorse albums, original pressings aren't cheap but this is definitely the definitive way to hear the album.

Disappointing. Sounds clean and crisp on vinyl but I'd guess it's just taken from the CD and not the original masters. Sparklehorse is full of unique beautiful-little sounds and it's upsetting not to hear them. The record sounds warm but falls below exsoectations of what I had hoped. I've heard a lot of negative things about Plain Recordings and their vinyl reissues. Given this album was $40.00 and is not popping in sound I, can't recommend it. It's beautiful music and it's a shame it was given this treatment on the vinyl reissue from Plain. Adding insult to injury is that it cuts two tracks from the album. Which doesn't make sense to me, since the original pressing and other reissues fit all the songs on, no problem. I'm not downplaying the music or album but the sound on this reissue is quite disappointing. Plus the missing tracks... Extremely dispirited.

An absolute mess, as expected, by the horrid PLAIN Recordings label. These sad, pathetic opportunists have ZERO idea how to properly master music for vinyl or the kind of devoted respect the format deserves. They have OMITTED songs off this gem of an album, for no other reason than sheer laziness and cluelessness. Avoid avoid AVOID.

Had heard mixed reviews about this "Plain" pressing. Overall it's good... the first half was clean with good range. The first couple songs on the second side have some random hisses, lil pops and noises. I think it's due to 'non fill' based on looking at the record after and seeing some tell tale signs. I guess just try to look at the vinyl before you buy (which likely won't help too many people buying this on discogs, sorry)
