The copy I bought today 2-18-19 is quiet as can be. Sounds fantastic with virtually no surface noise/crackle/pop. Great sounding record.

Just recently bought another copy. I can safely say that this time it is much quieter. Not sure if they went back to pressing plant with this one, but the record store I went to just got these in from their distro in December. There is still surface noise but it is at what I'd consider "normal" for a modern pressing. What I bought before was most certainly not "normal."

Does anyone have an idea what the value of a test pressing of this album would be? I picked one up for my collection and it's invaluable to me. I was just curious if anyone has seen them before as I'm unsure how many exist.

Mark Kozelek's finest hour right here. First copy I bought of this had the repetitive scratchy noise on side A that others have on theirs, to the point I couldn't stand it and returned it. Second go-round, this one is a slight improvement-- the same noise is still there (which means it's part of the stamper they used), but not as bad. Side C with Duk Koo Kim is perfect though.

Glad I got my copy before reading these reviews. Mine sounds wonderful, with only the occasional pop/crackle that every record has. Really nice mastering too.

I have an Optimal pressing. The C-side ("Duk Koo Kim") is pretty noisy throughout, even after a dry and wet cleaning. And no one has mentioned that the album cover is textured. It's sort of a porous, heavy card stock feel. I'm unsure whether the original Vinyl Films version or the Rough Trade/Caldo Verde US reissue has this same kind of cover.

Took a wet cleaning, a vacuum cleaning, a dry cleaning, a zerostat shot, then another wet cleaning and vacuum cleaning...but the surface noise is now at a tolerable point...oh well.

It really needed some wet-cleaning, but after that it sounds great. Pretty quiet all the way through with just some occasional pops (especially on the bonus-track, but that doesn't really bother me).

Is there any way to tell from looking at the sealed LP that this is a UK pressing? Or, is the packaging identical to the US release, and the only way to tell is to check the runout?
