Yet another record added to my collection with an etching on one side that has caused a dish warp. Does anyone else experience this? I have at least 4 or 5 records with etchings and all have dish warps. Some have a 2nd disc with no etching and that disc is fine.

This release is "RSD FIRST" meaning future pressings are coming - don't support flippers by paying outrageous prices!

This pressing is gorgeous! I'm hearing these tunes in a way I've never heard them before and I'm absolutely loving it. Call Out My Name is especially startling in how different it sounds. Didn't fully realize how chillingly beautiful that song is until now. If that weren't enough, the packaging is super classy and sleek. Highly recommended!

Sounds a tad better than ok which tends to be par the coarse for Weeknd releases. Even after a cleaning, still a fair amount of surface noise. Very apparent during 'Hurt You'. While the etching is nice, would have preferred they spread this out onto both sides. There's basically no breathing room in-between songs. The low end could be lower and that's probably because it's all crammed on one side. However, this may be better for the typical person buying this as their equipment can't handle the lows anyways.

My copy I received from Rough Trade is different? The sticker says RSD Black Friday. And the back has no FBI warning. Made in Czech Republic.
