Assuming this never had a repress, does everyone's copy have a very audible "whooshing" noise at the start of both sides? Would be nice to have a copy that wasn't blighted by this.

I have the black vinyl, and yes there is non-fill, especially at the start of both sides, indicating a hasty pressing process and poor quality control. I wonder what it would be like in a remaster? The music merits it: nostalgic psychedelic shoegaze of the first order, counting as a significant release in the retro 70s occult rock genre that includes Witchcraft, Blood Ceremony and Lucifer, amongst others. It is particularly psychedelic and folky, so it has its own fuzzy sound. A real grower.

Can someone who has the black vinyl version comment on whether their copy is noisy? By noisy I mean noisy static filled lead-in on both start tracks on either side.

Is this the black vinyl version? Is it any better than the clear one? My clear copy has extremely noisy lead in on both sides, and this is a common issue.

I have the clear vinyl pressing. It is noisy. I wonder if the black vinyl version is any better

Sorry but I do not understand! I listen only vinyl and it is absurd that the prints are so bad! The productions or artists do not realize the poor quality of the prints on vinyl? I'm not forced to buy more records unfortunately! A lot of prints are very bad!

This pressing sounded pretty good in my opinion. A few pops and clicks here and there, but overall a great listen.

sigh - sadly, this band is still allowing this horrible label (Jagjaguwar) to release their vinyl. the vinyl will most certainly have surface noise and flaws equalling a total waste of money....

UPDATE: As expected from this label this pressing is a disaster. A1=G extremely noisy lead-in, 6 tics at end; A2=VG+ noise at end; A3=VG+ 1+ multi-rev tics, noisy; A4=VG noisy; A5=VG+ multi-rev tics / B1=G extremely noisy lead-in, multi-rev tics; B2=NM; B3=VG+ B4=NM; B5=VG+ 1 loud pop, noise at end; B6=NM; B7=NM (ends abrupt with a click - intentional?)
