Sounds great, no skips or scratches, records are flat as earth. I use, Cartridge Ortofon 2M Black w/ 1,5 gram tracking force on a Pro-Ject Xtension 9. And cover looks great (no scratches at all) w/ printed inner & hype sticker. Ordered my copy from Jackpot Rec.

The one I got is incredible. No skips, no scratches, none of the problems others are reporting. The LP sounds actually, noticeably different than the CD included in the 2001 box set, as in substantially better. Way more dynamic and alive. Gatefold and sleeves are beautiful and heavy. This is a bargain at $35, and I'm quite happy to have it. You can tell a lot of care went into the planning, design and pressing.

Fun fact - my only reference for Youth of America prior to buying this was the aforementioned CD, so I thought this was pressed with the tracks out of order, but it turns out the box set inexplicably reordered the songs, so it's hard for me to get used to "No Fair" not being first, though I can always play the B side first to get my original experience.

Wipers fans won’t give a shit of the vinyl looks ugly or if there’s a scratch on that back cover. An outstanding pressing of punk music that needs to be turned up. Stop treating this like it’s a MOFI Neil young copy of Harvest

I only bought this for the 2nd LP (I have an original). Sounds like hell---multiple skips across side c and d. Borderline unlistenable.

Is the original rejected cover Art the “flag” cover? I thought it was the cartoon one and it would be included as an insert?

Two copies from the store and both copies skip on the D side…. Otherwise awesome packaging and great sound quality on the first disk.

10/10 pressing and package. So damn good that I spun it twice in one go. Youth of America is an album I always felt never had the best recording quality as previous vinyl pressings/streaming copies of this record always sounded flat to me. But this pressing provides a soundstage that truly shows how detailed and punchy this masterpiece is. Kevin Gray never disappoints with the vinyl pressings he's involved in and I'm glad he was able to finally give this record the proper pressing it deserves. For those interested, I highly recommend you pick this one up quickly as it seems to still be in stock on the Jackpot website and various record stores.
