The B side is really great, let me say that first. Sadly due to a manufacturing / pressing error or perhaps mastering issues on the A side/main track, there is horrible, rather unlistenable distortion that kicks in at a fairly mid frequency throughout. And it's not deliberate distortion either , although some may say it gives the music an additional sense of decay, pushing towards the merzbow end of the spectrum. It isnt a hifi set up issue as some may speculate, im using a denon DL 110 cart and no adjustments made to the stylus improves or removes any of the unwanted distortion . Very disappointing as I am a big fan of basinski's work. Are there any copies out there that actually play as the artist Intended as I would like to get hold of one?

Same here. Brand new and distortion throughout the main track.

Is anyone else's Vinyl copy of this crackly and distorted? The whole of the A-side of mine is practically unlistenable and its fresh out of the shrink wrap!?
