Probably the worst sounding record I have in my entire collection. Which is unfortunate because it’s one of the best indie rock records of the ‘00s

The album has been lauded for its "power to emotionally destroy listeners". This is true. The sound on this absolutely horrendous pressing is so noisy and muddled that it could make anyone cry in frustration.

Such a shame that such a spectacular album received such a poor pressing.

I have this pressing and can say it sounds amazing. I have none of the problems being mentioned below. Pretty surprised it has been a bad expereince for so many folks, great music, great pressing!

Whoa, they weren't kidding. Terrible sound on the vinyl. Muddy, crackle, low volume. Yikes. Shame as the record is really quite lovely.

Another confirmation of a bad pressing. Horrible sound quality in a number of different ways.

I got a copy of this from VNYL and it's horribly off-center. The sound is distorted and crackly. I'm assuming the grooves have been affected because the sound clarity and volume vary with each rotation. The music is great, but this pressing is terrible.

First play was rough, same issues as everyone else here is saying. My gf suggested cleaning it, and that helped as dramatically as this album is. All
I did was wipe it with a microfiber cloth. I plan on cleaning it again after it finishes playing, and probably every other time I want to destroy my emotions going forward.

I bought 3 copies: All three copies are really bad considering the press quality as it stands below many times. We could call this a misspress. A shame considering the beauty of this work.

Seems like everyone complaining is dealing with faulty pressings. It's a well mastered record, done by Salt. However my copy is filled with noise and non-fill, classic Rainbo Pressing.

The price just sky-rocketed from 10 to 45 dollars. wat
