My feelings on Rob being Banksy... with this ugly record, I just don't see it.

Horrible crackle and distortion on right channel, especially in the beginning of each side, even after ultra sonic cleaning. No same problem with other records so it is just this pressing. (My set up:Audio Note Three turntable + Audio Note IOII MC cartridge) Too bad as the music is great and cover too.

Amazing reissue, packaging, sound, dynamics, been waiting for this a long time. Initial track "Pray for rain" sounds the band is playing in your living room, grab this while you can.

this is not a double release. in fact the "normal" cover is much more common than the glitter cover and most of the copies for sale in the separate listing for the glitter cover are incorrect (I know because I have asked them the direct question) -they should be listed against this entry

Paradise circus back ground is very distorted . As with other tracks .. Had to recheck my stylus as I thought it was fluff causing this .... bad pressing.

Got my copy from Canada but looks like my cart was jumping on every first track on each side like crazy, skipping etc... So, I got a replacement and this happened again :) Third item is on the way. I can't just stay without this album on wax so I'm trying to find a good copy for my collection. Also, my cart is Benz LP on VPI Scout and setup fine. Table is leveled. Has anyone noticed the same issue? Hope it's not a bad batch that amazon.ca got.

Not really. It's 1.9g for Benz LP it's recommended by manufacturer. This only happens with only this album from my collection and I got three copies from amazon.ca already with the same issue. The price the was best there. Cartridge really jumps and shakes on the first few minutes of each side then plays normal. With eye inspection there is sort of dent on first tracks approximately 3mm in diameter. That doesn't look like physical damage but most like manufacture defect and it's barely noticeable.

Could it be an issue with your tracking force? Do you have anti-skate? I haven't tested mine out yet but I just might now even though it's well outside of the return window for Amazon.ca.

UPDATE: Listening to it now. The first track has a constant bit of crackling but is otherwise ok. Not happy about the crackling but I did play it without cleaning it off with my brush first (it looks super clean). No skipping so far.

The mastering on this LP is amazing, the artwork is to die for. A quiet, extremely dynamic pressing. I would kiss the mastering engineer right now.

This has been one of the most elusive re-issues for which I am now a proud owner. after years of toying with the idea of buying an original, the wait is finally over. The cover and inner sleeves are high quality, the outer is oversized in width so it wont fit any snug protective covers, you'll have to stick the record in sideways. The inner artwork is your typical Massive attack imagery not much text to speak of. the inner art booklet is a nice touch. The real gem here are the record pressings themselves. Superbly pressed finished well clean and sounded magnificent on of my planer3. For the price $35 Canadian its a quality package

think this is a pretty, if a little lazy, reissue. Same outer sleeve as for the 3 disc original, just applied glue on one panel to suit the 2 disc rather than reduce the size, so...don't expect to hang this on the wall as the tri-fold makes it too wide, and wider than any normal LP packaging. Worth paying £28 for but no more.

Just received my copy yesterday from amazon (pre-ordered back in 2017)...finally it's here. 32.00 canadian. Now looking at amazon, it's already been bumped up to 54.99 canadian. Hilarious.

The record - outstanding.
