My copy has none of the mentioned defects, no distortion or rips to be heard on any side. It's a pretty average pressing, a few clicks fresh out of the sleeve. But nothing like non-fill or worn stampers. Bought it new back in the spring. Must've gotten an early copy or something. But there's probably more good copies than defective ones.

Surprised to see this is now a $40 record. Don't be a dummy and get scalped on a momentarily out of print album. Warp kept on pressing new Boards of Canadas to meet demand.

Did anyone ever recieve a satisfactory response from bleep?
They replied once in February and said they would send a replacement and have ignored me ever since.

Reader's Digest ~

Warp had a lot of problems pressing clean-sounding copies of some of the Boards re-releases, especially Geogaddi.
Now I read complaints below of pressing issues here. Sad because this Lifestyles Of The Laptop Cafe release is literally my most wanted reissue ever. (I'd attempted several times throughout the previous decade to get a copy on eBay but my bids were always just a few dollars short of the final price. And after it hit $100+ I just gave up entirely.)

So...
HOW DOES THIS LATEST PRESSING SOUND !?! Is it relatively noise-free?

Yeah D2 sounds like S H * T. Didn't bother listening to B1.
WHY THE F*CK HAS WARP NOT RECUT THIS AND OFFERED REPLACEMENTS !?!!?!?
THEY SHOULD HAVE NEVER APPROVED THE TEST PRESSINGS TO BEGIN WITH.
SHAME ON YOU WARP RECORDS !!!
YOU SPOILED THE POTENTIALLY GREATEST REISSUE OF THIS DECADE.

I found it at 2 separate record stores in my local hometown of Edmonton, AB, Canada. Way up northwest, depending on where you live get out there and check the record shops, they may have it in the electronic or alternative section.. good record store owners knew about this and stocked it

Yea I'm bummed about the B2 and D2 distortion! Is there any way I can for sure grab a clean copy? Judging by Redeye there's another pressing coming out on May 19th, maybe this'll be the one?

What exactly went wrong here?

Usually vinyl mastered at Dubplates & Mastering and pressed by Record Industry would be a recipe for success.

Are there any plans by Warp to sort this out?
