This pressing sounds fantastic! Not much surface noise at all & no pops, clicks, or skips to note. All of the instruments and vocals show up strong and with great clarity. Lyrics are on a good quality printed foldout poster. The spine seems to be a wide spine. The blue vinyl fits the album much more than a white vinyl would.

Is "Sleep Well, Beast" an homage to Explosion in the Sky's "Be Comfortable, Creature"? Explosions In The Sky - Take Care, Take Care, Take Care

When GZ vinyl is involved you know you have to avoid, or risk yourself to a lottery. In this case for me I got quite lucky, my pressing is super silent, nice separation overall and no clicks or pops, the drums are a highlight for me. Just a few static noise here and there but a decent volume drowns it out pretty easily. Overall I'm quite happy with this pressing.

Great pressing until Sides C and D on my copy. Consistent, static-like surface noise throughout most of the tracks on both sides. A real shame since this is a gorgeous sounding album. A beautiful package overall though, as most National albums are. Gatefold, inner sleeves, poster....all wonderfully put together.

Review is against the blue pressing.

Sleeve is gatefold, same as blue and white. Printing is the same. The inner sleeves are not die cut, which allows them to slide easier imo.

The blue pressing is already pretty freaking quiet. I do think the sound floor on the forest hills green vinyl is a touch lower.

Overall happy I bought this variant, the translucent green looks better vs the opaque blue.

Ive been record collecting and selling for many years and i have to say this pressing is a bad one.side3 & 4 have bad surface noise, audio distortion and is just a plain mess..Side 1 & 2 is slightly better with better sound stage but it still has light surface noise..i have no idea if its a label problem as i also have high violet which is also a poor pressing..

I've been trying to know for like a month which version did I get (White with the folding poster and all), but I can't match the etching marks I got with any version here on Discogs, my marks are:

Side A 159449E1/D
Side B 159449E2/A
Side C 159449E3/B
Side D 159449E4/D

Please help

Any comments on this pressing? Or you all keep it sealed due to its exclusiveness? :D
