Bit of underlying surface noise, but it gets drowned out and is hardly noticeable. Sounds amazing!

Needs a deep clean before the first spin. I could feel the static electricity when I passed my record brush over it, but giving it a clean seemed to fix the issue.

My copy is my best sounding St Vincent release of the 4 VMP pressings. Not perfect, theres slight surface noise on my B-side, but thats a critique for criticism's sake; it does not at all affect the listenability.
The package is probably the most simple of the VMP released St Vincent albums, but thats not an issue for me. I like the subtle foil stamping, and the color of the record is gorgeous

If you're on the fence about grabbing this one, I'd say go for it; incredible album and a really dignified pressing for it...
But if the scalpers are asking $100+ just know there's nothing super special about it besides the limited run

For me, there was noticeable surface noise in the quieter parts which improved significantly with a wet clean (didn’t go away entirely). The songs themselves sound absolutely fantastic and the minor static doesn’t detract from them.

can anyone comment on how this sounds? I had the white version and it was not great (surface noise).

Some quite innovative arrangements, but this is not a very good sounding vinyl with a tendency to a grainy sound, which is especially apparent on the guitars but makes unwelcome appearances elsewhere. A wispy and grainy midrange. I'm really split about this record; sometimes it comes close to irritating faux sensitive generation snowflake music, at other times I think it is quite original and praiseworthy for that. A better recording would have helped a lot.

Side A is fine. Side B has a ton of pops to the point that it's borderline unlistenable.

As guitarist at The Polyphonic Spree and Sufjan Stevens, Annie Clark saw already how much appreciation an American artist worldwide. It could not, however, prepare for the reaction that her her solo work under the pseudonym St. Vincent would unleash. The received with loud applause plates Marry Me (2007) and Actor (2009) are followed with the likewise rich with Star award-winning third record Strange Mercy. Rightly so, because the plate sounds incredibly strong. Clarks style is close to that of female centipedes as Kate Bush, Feist or Björk. Music that makes it especially good rock critics and often a little too typical for the general public. Yet a number of tracks on Strange Mercy striking simple and effective in each other. There may even be dancing now and then. Surprisingly, the technical competence of Clark as instrumentalist, with squealing solo – it is a weird synth or a distorted guitar? – in the nervous Surgeon as highlight. Strange Mercy is not for everyone, but tenacious listeners can entertain themselves considerably with this cd full of eccentric pop.

My copy of CAD 3123 seems to have the LTD sleeve with no text, but the normal black vinyl w/o track lengths. Anybody know if I just missed a version?
