The quality of these records is unreal! The packaging is basic (plain paper inners, no gatefold), but OK. But the sound... good lord, the sound. Dead quiet vinyl, super warm SQ. If you've only heard this album as compressed mpegs, you're missing out on 80% of the music's value, seriously. James Murphy wants you to hear this in analog!

Did anyone else preorder the autographed postcard version and never receive it? I emailed DFA repeatedly and no one ever responded. Never buying any DFA/LCD stuff again.

Doesn't the stamp (P USA) on this indicate it was pressed at Pallas? Were some runs pressed at QRP and others at Pallas?

I recall an early press release for the vinyl mentioning being pressed at Pallas as well.

Great music. Good mastering. Crappy pressing. Crackle throughout the entire first side. Both LPs warped. I'm getting *so* tired of pressing quality these days.

Almost done listening to this , i had to comment right away, i'm in freaking heaven, what a rebirth, thank god they are back,...As for the pressing itself, maybe i was lucky but my copy is flawless, no warping, the sound is amazing, noise free....Crank this up, this is one hell of a trip.

Bought the US pressing-- done at QRP-- which is normally a very good thing. But this is a sub-par pressing. Both discs were scuffed and disc two, as others have reported, was severely warped. It's going back for a replacement. A solid album but disappointing vinyl quality.

UPDATE 10/3/2017: Purchased another copy and disc 2 was not warped. It was scuffed and they have the vinyl in cheap paper sleeves so this may happen as they're being assembled. Playback is pretty decent, minor surface noise, still, it does sound excellent.

LCD Soundsystem, the most original tribute band of all time...

Excellent album, LP version slightly disappointing sonicwise (compared to previous LCD Soundsystem releases). The 2496 version has a lot more punch and detail. Great album nonetheless.

My copy of sides 3 and 4 are badly warped. Emailed DFA several days ago with no response so far.
