I just received this picture disc via Amazon (brand new) for what I thought was a great price. I was expecting some surface noise but it skips terribly on side 2 at Parabol. Side 1 sounds pretty damn good and disk 2 has very little noise- not sure what to do. Amazon will replace it but looking at all the comments it sounds like pot luck. I'm frustrated that Tool would OK such a poor picture disc.

I mean it is a picture disc, so yeah, it's gonna be a little noisy. but it's just a normal amount for a picture disc. Otherwise sounds great, especially the louder tracks.

Does this record have the signatures of the band mates.. like the 250-300.. or is it before or after?

Avoid this release. I just got a copy today and it sounds awful. Wish I read this before. Still a cool collectors item. Think I'll throw it in one of my record frames.

Came here looking to see if the original pressing was better than my re-issue. Maybe not, mine is picture disc, but mine is dead quiet, which is odd for picture disc I know, but it's true. For those who have significant noise, have you cleaned the record? Mine has gone through a spin-clean and I use a pretty heavy weight, and I use an anti-static carbon brush before every play. I have some Analog Productions stuff that is much noisier than mine.

Also, this is tagged as a reissue, though, it's the first official pressing on vinyl? I'm not sure what I'm seeing here.

The picture disc was not a great idea. The sound quality is sacrificed even if it is the CB copy. During the quieter parts or take Reflection, there is surface noise. I'm thinking it would have been so cool if they didn't use the picture idea and simply used the eye saw blade art on the center label that was on the CD.

Looks cool, but sounds horrible. It's not even a bad bootleg level: pops and clicks are all over the place, even skips, sound is shallow and lifeless. I guess it can only satisfy a hardcore fan

only on picture disc? those picture discs sound quite similar to flexi discs in my opinion. they look great but "normal" pressings sound better.

I'm just going to come out and say that I'm less than happy with this disc set... I know that picture discs can sound kinda bad and have issues but I was really hopeful that a band like Tool would focus on quality here. Sadly this isn't the case... Skips, pops, cracking all over the place and this was on the first play fresh out of the sleeve. I love the artwork and the packaging is great but I didn't buy this just to look at it. From this point on I'm going to follow my gut and stay away from picture discs whenever possible.

Packaging is very nice. But that's where it stops. Picture discs just don't, and will never sound great compared to non picture discs. Sad really cause I love this album. Worth having to me just cause it looks so great.
