Guys, how can I return it to the company? I'm quite disappointed by the overall sound of this matrix, as it's one of my most beloved albums ever.

Do not buy it. The sound quality is compromised. Saturated low frequencies and background noise. Unbelievable that Universal Music used Plain's matrix.

I just brought my copy home. Don't bother with it. It's on two lps so I hoped that it would not sound as bad as everybody is saying, but it does. Wow, what a bummer.

The quality of the cover/sleeve art alone is vastly inferior to the Bong Load reissue. I compared them side by side and it's night & day. Wish I'd known ahead of time of the connection to the the Plain mastering - this will stay unopened and promptly be returned to UMe. Very disappointing.

Still up on bong load's site for $35. They released a final batch last week. Can't believe they're still around a week later:

Friday 6th April 2017:
PLEEZE - what's the scoop - - - what's the mastering for these 2017 reissues of Figure 8 and XO? An SH forumster is absolutely positive that the deadwax on his just purchased 2017 XO indicates the dreaded Plain Recordings matrices. So apparently Universal just used Plain's 2008 metal plates to hack these out - ugh! If you have contradictory info, please post it.

My copy was pretty noisey, anyone else have this issue?

I've owned two other versions - the red and blue plain edition and the back to black repress - and this is easily best of the three, despite the slight surface noise. Also the artwork is loads sharper - I guess all reissues have relied on scans of the original up to now, but the difference is night and day - compare the back covers. You can't even tell Elliott's wearing an earring on the plain and geffen reissues!

This sounds great! A tad noisy at parts, but overall for a colored 1LP for an album this long, it sounds pretty awesome.
