Surprised at some of these reviews. My copy is PERFECT - has no warp, no superfluous noise, and no skips. Sounds deep and rich, every note crystal clear. Seems like a lot of problems were had by people who bought their copy online / via Amazon, whereas I bought mine in person at a local store. Not sure if that accounts for the difference or not, but a lot can happen when things are getting mass packed and shipped.

Don't normally do this, but here's my experience. I bought one of Discogs. Looked good, great packaging, wasn't damaged in shipping, clean as all get out. Not 180g. I put it on and there's skipping and jumping on a few songs. Returned to pop market, they sent me a replacement.

Bought a UK version on Amazon. Not 180g. No damage in shipping. Skipping and jumping in the same songs, but either more frequently or less frequently. Sent it back for refund.

Received replacement from pop market. 180g. This one isn't as flimsy as the other two. Again, great packaging, no shipping damage. No skipping or jumping anywhere. I don't know why there's such a discrepancy. I mean the the first copy and the second were etched with different cut studios. Thankfully it worked out.

Big ups to pop market for their great customer service! It was my first time having to go through this and they were great at being helpful and quick. Much confidence in them.

my copy of this (RTD 121.1264.1 LP, Germany) has the centre-labels inverted... anyone else?

A guy has just sold number 0001 of this on ebay. This is the interresting part of the auction description:

"
Yes you did read that right this is the rarest version of PJ Harvey’s debut album and it is number 0001.

The reason I have this is because back in 1992 Too Pure were the very first label I took on as label manager for APT and also handled their production. So I got first dibs.

Out of interest the were actually 1500 pressed the first thousand were numbered 0001-1000 but there were an additional 500 pressed with duplicate numbers 500 - 1000.

Can someone that owns this can review this unofficial copy? The official reissues were bad, so I'm wondering if this one is better.

This pressing is pretty bad. My "mint" copy jumps on at least three tracks and actually skipped about nine times at the end of "Oh My Lover" before resolving itself. The vinyl isn't pristine looking but I don't see any physical marks prominent enough to justify any of this. Cleaned the vinyl and no difference. Clearly based on the other reviews of this pressing, it's an issue with the pressing, not the seller grading poorly. Disappointing. I hope they correct this on future reissues.

Already out of print again. Nab these reissues cast before they go.

Just bought this EU version from a local record shop. Came pretty warped but nothing that undermines the listening.
That being said, the vinyl sounds great to my years, no surface noise, drums and guitar are REALLY in your face ('Happy and Bleeding', god !!), instruments are pretty separate ('Hair' !), it's punchy & loud. Compared to the CD, its WAY better: thank god, because it was way too quiet (I had to crank that shit up to max level on 'Oh My Lover': there should be a law against listening to that track on low volume).
There's some distortions here and there, but I remember it always being that way anyway so it might be from the masters themselves. So in overall, great vinyl (as long as the warping is in an acceptable level).
