Very muddy vinyl, I believe the mastering or the cutting process of the album has gone utterly wrong for this LP. It lacks this sharpness of the instruments found on the album and it is low on treble and vocal instrumentation. This is one of her best albums to date and yet this version of the LP is bad. (I read that all of them are bad, which is a huge bummer)

i feel really lucky because my record doesn't crackle or skip anywhere on the disc. The packaging its self is quite beautiful too i personally would recommend getting this.

My favorite moment on the album (Sacrifice at 3:06) SKIPS!!! Brand new record being played on a brand new turntable and it skips!!! A brand new $32 record should not skip!!!!!!!!

No matter what i do.. the crackling noise on the blue disc wont disappear.. anyone elses suffer from this?i probably wouldnt be so bothered if my favorite track 'Hollow', also one of the quieter tracks of the album, wasnt on the blue vinyl making it even more noticeable

There's a mistake in the booklet mass-printing which universal music Argentina said that would be solved in a future re-issue which never happened.

This has the same slightly odd sound as all the other Biophilia releases. As I argued on the page for the original UK vinyl - this is cut from the same stampers - I don't think it's anything to do with the vinyl master. As I said there, it sounds quite low on treble and strangely lacking in sparkle for such a delicate, intricate album. But I own the CD of this and it suffers from the same problem. There's an interesting interview with Mandy Parnell at Sound on Sound - http://www.soundonsound.com/sos/jan12/articles/biophilia.htm - where she discusses how she remastered the album a couple of times until Bjork was happy, which did involve fleshing out the mid-spectrum and perhaps limiting the top and bottom ends slightly. I can only guess what we're hearing is exactly what Bjork wanted the record to sound like ('dirt, muscles, oxygen and stuff' as she writes in the manual edition).
