Pressing sounds good to me, on the Cobraside version from the States. The noise you hear is also present on the CD version, so I think that's just how it was recorded. The vinyl itself is pretty quiet.

This album opens with a jangly riff. It picks up with a driving rhythm. Song after song is instantly familiar and slightly hypnotic like a pop album should be, except for one or two unfortunate moments. A few waves of distorted pitch-bending chords and generous tremolo put this album solidly in shoegaze territory, but its summery melodies make it almost a power pop record. Adam Franklin's laid back vocals keep the music cool. The album cover pretty much conveys the dominant emotion here. It's an album for a late summer afternoon ride back home. I got the double-LP. Sounds good. My only concern is I'm a little worried I'll listen to it so much it will wear out and I'll need to buy a new one.

I bought the double album and the quality was pretty bad, with distortion through the vocals and guitars especially, had to send it back. Cherry Records, what's going on?

Quality of vinyl is not really good. Probably single LP version is better.
