Allow me to interject, I don't know if I got really lucky but my copy sounds really great. Barely any noise. I'm an audio nazi so get annoyed by the smallest ticks and some ticks do happen but it's really awesome for a colored pressing especially with the cheapness of all these labels regarding pressing. (and I haven't cleaned it so that noise will probably go away)

Just got the vinyl. Sadly, the entire SIDE A is full of loud and very intrusive noise on the left channel. These are not pops or crackles, more like some very strong rips through the sound like someone nudged the tonearm while it was playing. Generally the vinyl is quiet, much more then some, yet these things on SIDE A are totally ruining the experience for me. I just don't want to listen to it. I'll be exchanging it tomorrow.
