This pressing is so bad I questioned whether my stylus was broken. So muddy almost unplayable.

I have an extra copy of both inserts, including the art print - happy to mail them to someone for free if they want to pay the $3 for shipping. Just shoot me a message.

Got a brand new copy (assume it's the 2007 pressing) and it sounds amazing - bass that rocks my speakers and not even the tiniest surface noise on the quieter tracks. Definitely in the top 5 albums of the 2010s.

In case you were wondering, the quality on this pressing is just as bad if not worse than the US version. Avoid like the plague.

Fantastic pressing, best of any National album I own. Silent, excellent mastering, sounds great.

This is probably the shittiest sounding record in my entire (1000+) vinyl collection. Distorted from beginning to end (quite badly) and terrible narrow image. Such a great album, but this is a travesty of a pressing.

Just broke the seal on a copy I found in the used bins and am happy to report that there's no background noise at all. A slight warp from the enclosed 7" but otherwise no complaints. Money well spent.

My copy sounds great, deep bass, super clear and no floor noise or clicks/pops. Great job by Optimal, and my copy is more lime green I would say as well.

Disappointing press. My disc looked NM, but plays with surface noise on several tracks as well as distortion. Based on feedback here looks like I'm not the only one.

I got the 2007 US pressing.
Bought a used one from Discogs and was looking forward to black vinyl.
But sadly The quality of the vinyl looks poor (Despite of the fact it's used) The edges of the vinyl are rough/edges...
Has anybody the same problem?
