I wonder if there were some issues with this pressing. My first copy had some skipping through "Numb." I returned it for another copy, thinking it was just a defective copy. My replacement copy, though, has the same skipping issue

One of the best sounding records in my collection. I'm sure it does the original issues justice and more. Very bass heavy, perfect for the beats. The gatefold is beautifully printed too, with a nice anti-static sleeve. Excellent issue

This is one of the best pressed sounding vinyl I have ever owned, its a great album but this press has so much warmth and feeling to it.

One of the best and quite original trip-hop albums. Definitely worth having if you're into this great genre. Everything But the Girl comes close to this. Both albums have alot of similarities.

This album is archetypal of trip-hop. With out a question one of my favourite albums that I have ever had the pleasure to drop a needle on.

Great LP, essential 90s, surprised that it's not worth more already

Anyone have the deadwax/runoff matrices? If so, could you update? Thanks!
