Picked this up yesterday and am quite pleased. No surface noise whatsoever. Wide range, warm sound, thousand times better sound than the digital. How vinyl should always be.

Is there no surface noise when first opened? Got screwed on a copy of Kannon and still debating whether to pick this up or not.

Sounds incredible! Packaging is marvelously done! Bravo Southern Lord! You guys never fail to impress!.... except when it comes to there being a decent amount of pressings out there for the public to buy ;)
