I wish they would repress this. I'm getting tired of waiting.

I love the fact that in CD releases the coments are about the music itself, while in vinyl releases are about the quality of the pressing and how many times the buyer had to ask for a replacement, had to clean it or they suspect their copy is the worst.
This album was a total surprise back then, had no expectations about it and turned out to be one of the best that year. I have the Vertigo compilation too, another great find.

I have now gone thru 3 copies. The initial copy that was most unsatisfactory and then the replacements sent by Kranky. All 3 copies have the same issues. In fact, the replacement has the same + additional issues. It would appear based on both copies having the same issues that at least part of the pressing is defective. I'm going back to my digital copy. Until Kranky acknowledges and corrects the problem I would AVOID. The issues are background noise, crackle, clicks, pops. I'm so envious of those who got copies that they rate so highly.

Purchased recently from their bandcamp. Nice pressing with little noise, at least on my end. Highly recommended.

No surface noise at all on my repress copy, sounds great! Stunning record, the perfect balance of trip-hop and shoegaze.

There's a shitton of surface noise on my copy, even after thorough cleaning. And no, this is not surface noise from the music itself. Not overly distracting though: as soon as the music starts, the overall sound quality speaks for itself. Great sounding double LP overall but could have been better.

Does anyone have both presses? I'm wondering what it sounds like compared to Kranky's version. I know the repress should sound better - there's up to 18 minutes per side. But still, 23 minutes per side is not that much and flipping the vinyl after 15 minutes might disturb the meditation of listening..

Oh god. Got this relatively good price (35$) used. Thought that clicky sound on "Beat" was not part of the song. Checked from an audio rip elsewhere, all is good.
