The album is great, arguably their best. But the record? This pressing? Absolutely disgusting and pathetic.

my copy sounds not half bad, but disc one is pretty warped unfortunately. I can't hear it affecting the sound too much, and LP2 is pretty flat. but would warn anyone looking to get this one.

Warping is horrible as others have pointed out. Asking my record shop to take it back.

I'd like to hear an instrumental mix of the album as I'm not keen on the vocals. The music's good but the whiny pained voice brings me out in hives. Sounds like someone's standing on her foot.

I guess I got lucky. My copy sounds excellent and only 1 pop/click at the beginning of side C.

I just purchased this as stock is starting to dry up at most vendors and who knows when a new run will be pressed. Despite the negative pressing quality reviews I decided to grab it while I could get it at normal price. Both LPs in my set are dished and LP2 has a fairly nasty edge warp. I can't get a clean start into the lead-in groove not matter what I try. Vinyl looks a bit dingy and is on the thin side, I'm guessing a 140g pressing. Some tracks have various pops and click others don't. To my ears the mastering is actually quite nice with a thick low end on many cuts and almost never any of the shrillness and brick wall loudness that digital versions of this album exhibit. Being 45rpm I think this could have cut a bit louder but turning up the volume a bit alleviates that issue. If they'd just incorporated a bit more QC this could have been an excellent vinyl release of this album. As it stand only pick this up if you are a big fan or better yet try to find the European 33rpm cut which has reportedly better vinyl and possibly better mastering.

Horrible pressing. Pops, clicks, and visible burrs on both albums along with being warped. Not just a packaging warp, but clearly a pressing warp. Worst album in my collection. The sound on this is a pale imitation of the cd. The grooves on this are very even and shallow. Looks like it was a computer master for the plates.

Sounds good. But somehow a bit shrill... But thats the production and not the pressing. So go for this one...

The sound quality is dynamic, no surface noise, and dead flat vinyl. Shame they can't get the labels right - my side 3 has a side 1 label on it!

My copy had clicks and pops right out of the packaging. It's noticeable but I can live with it.
