Just picked up the clear vinyl, I have no complaints at all. Sounds excellent! This album is a treasure. I’m very pleased.

Can confirm that it definitely sounds great. Very minimal surface noise, only really noticeable (but far from distracting) on the first track of Side B for me, and the mix is dope.

I really wish this would get scheduled for a 180 gram repress sometime soon

I own this clear version, nothing spectacular but seems to sound alright; everything I wanted at least. I read that the black pressing faired the best on average, anybody know if there is that much of a difference across the colors?

My yellow copy has no issues. It’s dead quiet and sounds great on all four sides.

Fantastic album. Poor quality pressing. Ruins the experience if you're playing it back on a high-end system. I also have the red pressing. Even worse.

Looking for an EU based Benji press (any color), will pay 60€.
Have heart for a desiring but also poor student. ;-)

Nice pressing of this album, packaging is very nice with the insert featuring the lyrics being a nice touch.

One of my personal favourites. At first I didn't hold much love for this album, but at second listen, and upon properly reading through the lyrics, I realised my prior mistake. I'm not usually a fan of this type of music: one that is sad and accompanied by rough vocals. However, there is something so sincere about the melancholy and thoughts shared on this album that the listener cannot help to connect with the palpable emotion. On too many occasions do vocals such as these come off as melodramatic or manufactured, but here they sound fittingly broken, vulnerable and reflective. The lyrics songs themselves are fascinating in sounding like epic ballads, but when analysed tell tales of simple provincial life and Kozelack's personal tragedies. The simple, yet infectious, upwards arpeggios perfectly serve to back the minute-by-minute storytelling and let Mark Kozelack's visceral vocals take centre stage. Occasionally, the music builds in such a subtle way that the emotions is only heightened, such as on the fantastic track "Dogs". The packaging on the vinyl additions, which I believe is identical for the coloured editions is lovely as well (I purchased the blue vinyl). I cannot recommend this album enough and rate it a perfect five stars.
