Mine sounds great. No issues here. Smokes my original pressing.

I guess I got lucky. The center label was laughable. It is off centered from the hole and just looks very "slapped on last minute". The hole was a bit tight but it was properly centered and didn't have any playback issues. It was dirty as hell, but after a clean it was perfectly fine. Still sounds a bit noisy with the clean, although since this is not a quiet album by any stretch it doesn't interfere during a song. Production is top notch otherwise, my favorite Weezer album behind Pinkerton (Which I have yet to get on vinyl).

For those wondering the DMM release has the follow sticker on the wrapping "Direct Metal Mastering for Optimal Sound cut at Abbey Road Mastering Studios" so take that what you will.

Not a fan of the included stuff in the release though, all that is included is the most basic of lyric sheets, makes it hard to read the lyrics sometimes because its all squished on the lower half of the front of the sheet.

Very disappointed with the pressing quality. The spindle hole is way too small and off centre. Side B was really bad resulting in a lot of tone arm sway. Hopefully mine was just a fluke. Will be returning to my local store for another copy. I'll let you know if it's any better!

let us know how this one sounds as it's only had the 1 pressing (why wasnt there a MoFi release for this??) and this one was done with DMM
