I like this record very much. Not a masterpiece but full of nice ideas, changes and fine melodies.

Does anyone know the exact amount this pressing is limited to? I cannot find info on that anywhere, highly doubt it’s only 200

My copy is super quiet so it surprised me to read the comments here. I to expect that at a higher price and certainly does feel a heavy 140-180 g disc. Love the colour also.

Just purchased this album.

Initial thoughts:
My copy is pressed flat and centered. There is surface noise throughout, minor clicks mostly. It is not terrible, but it is definitely there at times. I have wet cleaned the album twice, no improvement. It is heavy weight vinyl. Probably close to 180g, if that matters for folks. The blue vinyl is quite nice. Matches the cover perfectly. The mix and music sounds pretty good. Punchy low end. Granted I haven't revisited this album (my CD copy) in probably 10 years.

My vinyl copy has a strange 1 to 2 second "fart/buzzing sound" near the end of Rags to Rags. Never experienced anything like this in the 10 years I have been buying records. No noticeable marks or anything on the grooves. Not sure what it is.

I found this album on Sound of Vinyl, and used a coupon code to get the price down to $31 shipped. I'd say it is probably worth 30 bucks. The release is definitely not worth $45+. It comes in a fairly simple single sleeve jacket, inside a printed inner sleeve. Pretty basic overall.

I must have a dud. Not only is there a crazy warp, but the last 1/2 of Beautiful Freak, side A is filled with a noticable click on every rotation and on through the next song.

Mine feels heavy, like 180g. Anybody know if it is?

As someone noted, the color is spot on to match the color of the "eels" name on the cover. I enjoy colored vinyl and especially like it when it matches the theme and/or original packaging. Dreamworks / Universal Import did a nice job there. The knock on this release is that it is a GZ Media pressing which is notorious for poor pressings. I broke my own rule and purchased it anyway thinking there had to be more to this release than just the blue colored record (spoiler: there isn't). I am still disappointed to pay a premium for a GZ Media pressing however my pressing is actually very quiet. GZ hasn't swayed me but maybe they took quality control to a new level especially considering the cost of this one. Side A for my copy is DEAD quiet. I was actually pretty thrilled until Side B. Side B started the same way but started super faint crackles could be heard during "guest list" if you listen very close. I'm being critical here but I believe that is fair for a $45 record. I expect audiophile quality at that price. That super discrete crackle was also present in the beginning of "mental". It cleared up and the remainder of the record is dead quiet. I hope that helps others considering this release. I haven't heard previous pressings but it sounds like it could be the best of the reissues and on the whole a really nice pressing. However, you can decide if it is worth the selling price.

This pressing sounds great and is very quiet compared to a black version I once owned that was riddled with clicks and pops.
