I have 2 separate copies of this and both are pretty badly warped.

This pressing is terrible. Clicks and pops all over the place brand new. I purchased on ebay when it came out and was unaware of the different Ninja Tune/Domino pressings. Avoid this one.

Can anyone comment of the sound and packaging quality of this reissue? A comparison to the one from 2013 would be ideal.

Do people who have listened to this and the ltd 33rpm version find a difference in quality?

I awaited this album for a long time and frankly it didn't disappoint, it rather impressed me in most areas. I firstly did not expect a case holding all the images and records. It feels like a real package with all the extras. Beautiful images accompany the tracks as explained on the front one. The only real negative about the design being that there is no plastic lining for the record sleeves and no lyrics sheet. They could easily have been written on the back of the images. An unfortunate oversight. But I have to say I love the way they numbered the sides with letters half visible in the corner of each label, highlighting the current one in blue. Tricky to see at first but stylish non the less. To get into the music itself we start off with the mastering which I agree with many is really "mastered". The singing is sharp and clear like the strings and the bass is meaty just like it should be. One of the better I have heard and it genuinely made previously inaudible sounds heard. But where I disagree is in the pressing department. Randomly pops can burst out of your speaker, sometimes with more consistency. Dont fret that its a dealbreaker however. It just did not meet expectations. Overall its a sturdy package with few shortcomings and for me an absolutely great one for showing what vinyl is really all about and what it can produce.

Edit: I dont remember exactly in what condition I got my copy but looking now its a little dirtier than I imagined when first reviewing. Take my words about the imperfect pressing with a grain of salt. Some of the more offencive pops are clearly caused by some visible marks I notice now as well. Make sure the records are shiny and clean when buying.

Equipment used:
Rega RP1 with Nagaoka MP-110 Cartridge
Cyrus 2 Amplifier
System Fidelity SF-3050 tower speakers
Custom made HQ speaker cables

There it was. Sat in Fopp for £23. Had to scrutinise it from top to bottom to make sure I hadn't bought the repress (which I'd assumed I had) when I was logging it to my collection. Blind luck it's stayed there for so long...that, and everyone else's poor taste. Brilliant album...

Is anyone else's copy of this particularly noisy on the A-side? :(

Found a sealed copy of this and promptly got it today.
Holy balls what a pressing, what a package. Lovely box type container sleeve. Photograph inserts are mint with two splendid 180g pressed records.
My kids are going hungry tonight Worth every penny.
