Absolutely beautiful release with 24 page photo book on a mix of gloss and matt paper stock. Sublime.

Trying to find honest quality vinyl reviews is difficult and getting answers to specific problems even harder. Internet answer searches are as vague now as getting a doctor health check.
The first record I ever returned was M83, 'Saturday=Youth' as the snap, crackle, and pop was littered on every track on both sides of the vinyl.
Then I had a good run mostly with Music On Vinyl (MOV) giving me perfect records without any issues. After reading the reviews regarding the release quality of 'Music For People In Trouble' on clear vinyl by Susanne Sundfor I was nervous. Like others I bought it anyway as it is as close to god and nature as I can get. As soon as it arrived I opened it up and played it. I used the usual brush to pick up hairs and loose organics on the record and began. To my heartache it was littered with pops, snaps, and crackles. In frustration I decided to take a cleaning cloth and wipe the shit out of it after running it under water. Then I took a nice soft cotton towel and rubbed it good. Lastly, I went outside and let the cool air breathe on the record. I did a prayer while waving the record back and forth in the fresh air. I really didn't want to send it back so I tried whatever I could. Well I am thrilled to report the personal love I put into the ritual of listening responded. The record plays 85% better now. My suggestion is that upon opening you give it a good rub down; some love, and a small initiation. A few snaps here and there I can live with. This masterpiece deserves it. I have played it about 8 times now and it just gets better. Just like Rice Krispies cereal the snap, crackle, and pop does go away the longer it sits in the bowl. Let the record breathe, give it your love, and play the shit out of it! I started this review at 11:30 am and ended it at 4:00 pm. This allowed for multiple plays and to kill off the snap, crackle, and pop! Cheers everyone, it is good advice. BTW, Mountaineers (LOL) is my go to track so after a lysol wipe and water rinse with a good shake in the outdoor wind there is 90% reduced pop. I never worked so hard for a record.

Update: Juno replaced my copy free of charge. Kudos to this shop. Unfortunately, the replacement copy is damaged as well, even more that the first one. Now I have two broken copies for the price of one - should it be considered as an achievement? My resume: avoid this album on vinyl regardless of your appreciation of such fantastic work of art.

Sadly my pressing is not very good. The music is beautiful, but there is a very sharp static noise in between the songs. Totally ruins the experience for me, in what I consider one of the best albums of 2017

Ok, so after several months of doubts I've rolled the dice and ordered it from Juno (they said nobody ever complained about "this product"). You know what? I lost! The quality of my copy is beyond belief bad: there are hundreds of clicks and pops right from the start on both sides, then the surface noise (have the similar one on used Style Council LP from the eighties :-)), and ... of course "Undercover" is damaged by bursts of noise. Accumulating the reviews, definitely the pressing of this album is shitty and quality control was absent entirely. Will try to return it for replacement (especially interesting from Russia to UK) but have very little confidence that replacement will not have the same problems. On the positive note the album is mind-blown and cover and booklet both wonderful, it's even has download code so you may stick LP to the wall and enjoy your download :-)

... And one more positive review on this LP !... No complaint at all : good sound, good pressing, plus a fine sleeve & booklet. Perhaps people who got a bad experience with a vinyl are more talkative than people who got a good one...

So for whatever it's worth, my copy is...actually pretty solid. I wasn't going to buy it based on reviews here but got it as a gift (clear version) and immediately put it on side B to test it out (pre-cleaning). A few pops in the first track of that side, but 'Undercover' and the rest of the side were fine. Side A, also no problems. Maybe I just got lucky? Such a great album, though!

One of the best albums released in 2017 and one of the best albums I have ever listened to. I love how she managed to create such a music piece out of almost nothing. Everything is so well and meticulously constructucted and put together, from the lyrics to the vocal melody to the minimal approach. The title is so felicitous, too. A great album for people in trouble.

A great album, beautiful artwork, and pretty good pressing.
However, side B does have a few hissing sounds here and there, most audibly on Undercover
