I was ecstatic for the sound quality of this release until I got to Books are Burning, last track on Side 4. Anyone else have terrible crackling/static on the latter half of this track?

This much awaited reissue on vinyl of one of XTC's best albums is nothing less but exceptional.
This is a very good 200 gr. pressing allowing the sound to be very deep and stereophonics effects to emerge correctly. Do not hesitate if you place these two records at the deserved level : that of a true vintage pop masterpiece.

I scared the delivery person when they delivered this to me today. All the excitement of a 5 year old at Christmas. Spinning it now and can't believe how amazing it sounds....beautiful pressing! and NOW my XTC vinyl collection is finally complete!

This sounds incredible. Really, really excellent clear and distortion-free reproduction, and vinyl seems to be a high quality pressing. Don't sleep on this, XTC fans.
