First, the good news: both discs from my copy lay perfectly flat on the turntable and play dead silent with no surface noise whatsoever. As warping and surface noise seem to be a common problem with this pressing, I guess I got lucky in that regard.

Now, the not-so-good news. As this album was recorded digital, there are some audio flaws exposed in the medium. Disc one has a few nasty moments, notably noise distortion to the top end on side one, giving it a rather “harsher” sound. It’s cut quieter to allow a little more dynamic range, but this is minimal and not revealing.

Disc two, on the other hand, is nearly fault-free...at least as much as the vinyl will allow. What I mean by that is the music plays cleanly without surface noise, but again, that “harsh” sound from the snare and swirly synthesizers make it a little hard to listen to. Side three is the best-sounding to my ears, with side four coming in second place.

TL;DR: “Great Album, Doesn’t Sound Good On Vinyl.” Sorry, not sorry.

Look for BrickwallHater’s redux for the best-sounding version of this album.

Wasn't satisfied with the original pressing back then (snap crackle blop) and returned it to the store.
Thankfully, this repressing good rid of all defects - both lps play with zero surface noise or snaps. Even the mastering itself seems crispier and punchier. All in all, finally a great pressing of a great record!

I guess I got lucky. My copy sounds pretty damn good and has no warps or surface noise. Not the best-sounding record in my collection, but definitely better than streaming.

Pretty sure I own this version, however side A and B also have the JN-H STERLING mark on the runouts. Anyway, it sounds great, no complaints really.

such an exceptional sound of "New Person, Same Old Mistakes" is due to the use of Phrygian mode

Side A tracks 2-3 Nangs and Moments have considerable static white noise on my copy. All other tracks are clean. Discs looked fantastic but I notice the grooves look darker and stand out more on the tracks I'm referring to. Anyone else have this problem? I'd like to exchange for another copy and hope its better because its hard to have a defect copy of one of my favorite albums. I picked this up from my favorite local shop. Does anyone have of a great pressing of this release or recommend a better reissue? Id like to believe that the next copy will sound better.

Originally I had bought the standard edition 2xLP, which sounded very muddy to my ears, and I can confirm that this release sounds miles better.

The sound is clear and punchy, and the vinyl itself is noticeably heavier and sturdier. Love the deep marble color. Excellent packaging as well and tons of nice features, though the flexidisc sounds a bit scratchy. Might just need a cleaning.

Definitely recommended if you can get your hands on a copy. Classic album that deserves a good pressing

A general rule of thumb I’ve learned is to avoid the US Interscope pressings and shoot for the 2015 European or Australian Fiction Pressings.

This isn’t entirely firsthand knowledge but rather general information I’ve gathered from this site, steve hoffman forums, and reddit. Cheers!

So I bought this thinking hey, this album would sound great on vinyl, right? Boy was I wrong. Don't get me wrong, it's a great album, but I should've checked what everyone else here said first. The pressing is abysmal. The Moment is especially bad, it's pretty much nonstop crackle throughout the entire song and it's painful to listen to. It's a shame such a good album got such a shitty vinyl.
