I have the white pressing and it sounds exellent. I did not even clean the record before playing. I usually do, but this vinyl look perfectly clean.

Solid record. I really love the vibe of An Awesome Wave - it's calming and teasing at the same time, lazily playful. It sounds fantastic, too; I love the layering, chorus effect they've inserted in album. It sounds rich, heavy, and engulfing. The lyrics are also cryptic enough to keep you guessing whilst they spin their sonic web around you. Then there's the feeling of getting lost in the music. Sometimes it's great, but sometimes it leaves me feeling like I've lost track of something.

I just purchased another pressing of this lp. The version I have was not pressed at United (no circle U in the deadwax) and is much better than the other one I had and returned.

Wonderful pressing, dead silent and well balanced, far more open-sounding than the cd !
I cleaned it right after unboxing, it had a hell lot of static !

So what's the verdict? ... which is the best pressing.. Europe or US, and in each case black or white vinyl?
I don't want to buy a duffer, so your thoughts appreciated!

I got this album without knowing it was the white pressing. Unfortunately, it pops and crackles like hell all the way through. My advice to anyone thinking about picking it up: make sure you're buying the black vinyl!

Are the labels intentionally printed a little off center?

After reading some reviews saying the quality of this pressing was poor I was very skeptical of buying it. I'll note the packaging is gorgeous however after putting this on my turntable for first time I also noticed the bad quality of the pressing. I thought, damn, poor purchase. After spending the night fiddling with my turntable I realized there wasn't enough weight on my stylus. I changed it to the appropriate weight and put on this record. Man, did my opinion change of this pressing. Sure it's a little bass heavy however, I don't notice any compression or distortion. I just changed the amount of bass on my Amplifier and it's great! I recommend this album, doesn't sound spectacular however it is much better than these reviews suggest.
