      Someone paid £55 for this already? JFL. It should still be available on their site.

        This is a great example of a bad process control considering the contrariety of reviews below. Got mine from Amazon and was not so lucky with it. Two discs have scratches on both sides and some of them seem as if they were done on purpose because of the repeated pattern they have. As expected a lot of pops and cracks throughout most of the record with some parts cleaner than others. Nevertheless the sound is so deep and thick and droning that eventually and fortunately I managed not to mind those flaws and concentrate on music itself which is unique in the genre of jazz. Besides you could even go as far as to consider those pops/cracks/sand as an artistic feature done intentionally to imitate old records. Who knows maybe that was one of their fricking ideas like these drops of rain on the artwork.
        Buy at your own risk, but a reissue with a better process would be a nicer thing.

          Music is great, but this pressing has many pops and clicks. Discs are off center.

            The plates are absolutely smooth, without waves. I didn't find any rustling on the mass of the plate. There are a couple of scratches, but it doesn't matter. Excellent recording, I recommend it.

              I going to assume Optimal fix the issues that people mention on their reviews cause mine is crystal clean. Not a single scratch on my two records.

              People also mention there was alot of crackling and pops when they listen to theirs. I only had one pop on the first song at the beginning and that was it.
              I was also bless I have next to none surface noises. Its was actually kinda spooky how dead quiet it was before the jazz kick in.

              The music was darkly gorgeous. Those sax was so dynamic I swore I was listening to the Cowboy Bebop OST. The bass from the bassist and lows from the piano is enormous. It filled the room and turn it into a bar. This current pressing they are running is top notch. Get it while its this cheap.

                Not sure what they're doing at Optimal these days but these discs are scratched to hell fresh out of the packaging... hopefully it's not audible. Lots of dust particles as well.

                UPDATE: The music is incredible but the pressing quality is subpar. Visible scratches out of the shrink, lots of dirt and dust. They're flat and centered at least. There's constant surface noise throughout, probably some of the noisiest vinyl I've heard lately.

                That said, some passages play quietly but it's a bit of a toss up.

                Music: 5/5
                Pressing: 2.5/5

                  Visible scratches on all 4 sides on new vinyls. In some cases, this leads to noticeable clicks during playback. The second track on side A and towards the end on side C is clearly a problem. In general, the new record needs cleaning.

                    The music is eery and great! Sometimes, I wonder if 33 1/3 rpm is the wrong speed setting...LOL. The pressing could be good. There IS a lot of ticking going on. Some say a good cleaning will fix it. However, I see my 2 discs were packed by someone wearing a diamond ring. One can't fix squiggly scratches! Argh!!!

                      A lot of crackling for a new record. A good clean might help, but there was also a hair sticking out of the vinyl at the outer silent rim. Not sure where this was pressed, but they did a loosy job. Still a really good album.

                        Only now I am finding out, that there is a difference between the cover art of 2000 and 2016 pressing. And I don't like it, I have to agree with others and also point out that when you look closer into the water drops, there is an image of some white tower in daylight. Water drops at the inside are the same. Other than that, I have no problem with the record, sound is good and the music is just perfect.
