I picked up a copy at my local record store. I was worried about the quality of the pressing due to the comment here but luckily I got a clean pressing. Once I opened the shrink wrap there were blue plastic and white paper sleeve shaving inside of the record sleeve which I wasn't too happy about. Thankfully I was able to easily brush off of the LP and my copy was reasonably quiet with a low noise floor.

That being said, the album doesn't really benefit too much from having a vinyl pressing. You gain some sense of separation between the vocals and the guitars but overall most of the instruments sit too close to each other with the mids and highs sort of meandering within the same range. I'd call the mastering muddy if it wasn't apparent that this is what the band always intentionally going for.

I guess you can't blame the vinyl though, I mean this isn't a Jazz album and you don't really listen to Wavves for their dynamic range. So though there is a slight widening of the sound stage on vinyl, I don't know if it's a reasonable gain with the reduced bass on the vinyl copy versus the digital. Thankfully my Rotel receiver has a fun Loudness filter that can swell the bass up a bit, but that's sort of like having to throw an orange wedge onto a frosty beer. I shouldn't have to.

Overall, I'm pleased with the pressing but as a listener it's unfortunate that I have to choose between the bass heavy compressed digital version of the song and the slightly less compressed lowered bass of the vinyl.

It's also weird that there is a BMX guy that is also named Nathan Williams who pretty much looks the same as the dude in this band. Fucking ramdom. Up the Nathans punx.

Got this from Amazon today and it's unlistenable. Loud tearing noises all through both sides of the LP. I thought I was ordering the black version but Amazon sent me this coloured version instead. This is why I avoid these gimmicky coloured pressings. Typical trash pressing from Rainbo Records. Sending it back to Amazon for a refund.
