I'm very sad to say that my copy has the same problems with sound that deldettmar23 described (concerning the first track on side B). Not just crackles, but loud distortions which makes me wonder what happened during pressing!?? Too bad :-(

Pretty simple, you have a lot of demand and not enough pressing plants, and don't get me started about good pressing plants with any sort of quality control. I can't even imagine how bad it is today with all the lame major labels flooding the plants trying to cash in on the fad. I have visited record pressing plants, they are basically the size of a one car garage with 2, maybe 3 underpaid, under-appreciated people doing all the work, and with demand today they are probably over-worked. Basically if you are buying records today don't expect a pristine product, I am not sure that has ever existed, unless you have a billion dollar band like the beatles with gallons of money to make it happen. At this point it's a bourgeois hobby, forget a $3000 sound system, why invest in a system thats just going to bring out everything that sounds bad about a pressing?

I am very pleased with my copy. The vinyl came in black poly lined inner sleeves and the sound is very good. A few clicks at the beginning of side A but the rest is very quiet. A slight distortion occurs in the high frequencies , don't know if intended on the original record or not, but to me its sounds nice and enhaces the naturalness of the music. This edition includes an interview that lets you know more about the musical ideas she had during the creation of the album and the recording process. She was very much inspired by African music and minimalism. Her purpose was to disengage herself from expression and create music that could help build the inner self. This is exactly what I feel when listening to this beautiful music.

My copy looks and plays perfectly well, no crackles nor pop, and regarding surface noises, this is a vinyl so it is expected, especially on quiet moments - ideal format to fully enjoy is imho CD.

I purchased the ''audiophile'' version of this with the hope of having a better sounding experience on my audio system. Played on a rather high end system with a a power amp at 120 watts and an audio technica 440 catridge working with a head amp, my copy is featuring a complete lack of dynamics, weak highs and a noise that at high volumes totally covers the quieter parts of the recording. To be honest the whole vinyl resurrection is nothing but a hype. My high quality mp3s of Midori Takada's masterpiece sound inconceivably better than the vinyl version. As with many other cases of re issues. Vinyl as you might have noticed is overrated and I'm happy that in most occasion I have skipped buying re issues. I can live with flacs wavs and so on. The sound quality is way better. Disappointed to say the least.

My copy is a disaster, i can't understand how its possible in the 2017. Brilliant way to ruin great work, compliments.

Phew! Good thing I checked here before buying this, I already got my fair share of bad pressings ruining great releases.

my pressing is terrible. side two first track constant crackle plus the occassional tearing sound. really horrible. the second track si not so bad but it is far from quiet.
wouldn't say avoid as it is such a wonderful record but the pressing faults and flaws keep breaking the spell. why are so many modern pressings so bad?
