nterestingly, picked up another copy around 2 years after my initial copy which had the noisy side 2 which was a widespread issue. This new replacement copy is a really quiet pressing throughout. The recording is slightly ‘crunched’ at times with this album. However, the sound is generally pretty much okay. If you can accept that this recording isn’t the most dynamic then this is a good option.

Very bad pressing, it's common among Capitol's "from the vaults".
Return it is

Keep in mind the following: This album was horribly mixed from the onset. Having owned the CD multiple times and getting the digital releases, the poor mixing was evident. The Hollow being a prime example. Complaints about this being a terrible pressing are unfounded. It is, however, mediocre.

There's not much surface noise on my end, including on side B. But some tracks sound overly distorted. For instance, Rose sounds like it suffers from the loudness wars. The track is much cleaner on CD and digital. on the LP, it's super distorted and it sounds crackly at times. It's a shame because it's a great precursor to Judith, which sounds fantastic on the pressing. Outside of Rose and Thinking of You, it sounds great all around.

Clean your records and store them in anti-static sleeves. Clean your stylus before each use. That will eliminate a lot of the hyperbole found here.

Terrible pressing. Period. Do not buy! We'll just have to wait for the next issue

Other comments are true. Great album, but poor pressing with a lot of surface noise, especially on side B. Sound also feels muddy and highly compressed while lacking details.

All the negative comments are true. I've bought the brand new sealed vinyl, and the surface noise is the strongest I've ever heard on a vinyl record. And it's not a matter of a dirty record - cleaning with Okki Nokki didn't help at all. Also, tried another brand new vinyl (same release) - the noise issue is exactly the same. And it's an irony that the noise is strongest on the side B - this side has all the 3 best songs in the album IMO. The sound also lacks details, and is not great overall (compared to the digital version of the album that I have). So, I wouldn't recommend buying this release - better to find an older release, or wait for a new reissue.

One of the worst sounding records in my relitively small collection. In addition to the high noise floor as people have mentioned there's just a lack of clarity. I can't make out the bass or any strings and the cymbals almost sound distrorted. I'm no audiophile but maybe I'm on the path and a release like this at least shows me what it shouldn't sound like.

The songs themselves are great though.

Sounds great, especially considering its a picture disc! Zero skips
