This Drag City pressing sounds fantastic. I'd highly recommend it. It's also relatively cheap compared to the other Fontana 1990's pressing.

I bought Tilt back in 2008 as a reward for finishing university. I hadn't heard a note from it but it had this reputation of being some kind of extreme impenetrable art project.

So to make it an event, I turned out the lights, plugged in my headphones and played it as loud as I could bear, something I rarely do. But what an experience! I really was blown away by the sound design. However I was much more surprised to discover how conventional it is. There are songs. There are hooks. It's not really an avant garde record at all. It's just not pop. After the initial shock of the first 3 songs, the album gradually becomes more straight-foward. I think it's fair to argue that Walker's last three albums work best when given your full concentration.

A few years later repeated the same darkened room-headphones trick with The Drift and Bish Bosch, but I didn't get the same rush. Tilt prepared me too well it seems.

My copy came out fine, sounds great except inner groove distortion on Rosary buy it adds more creepiness to the final track on a haunting masterpiece. Fave album by Scott RIP

Got a sealed copy in March 2021. A rather noisy print, pops, clicks and scratchy sounds pop up especially in A1 and B5, even after careful cleaning.
On the plus side, beautifully packaged and very good sound overall.

Same pressing fault on mine - audible "bump" for first minute of Side A. Download code didn't work either. And of course, the error on the lyric printing! Does no-one check these things before they go past the factory gate?! Unfortunately, there seems to be no way of spotting this defect before you buy in a shop, as some folk seem to have a good pressing. At least on Discogs you can ask the seller first!
A real shame, as I've been after this for ages. Just took it back to HMV for a refund.

This pressing is so much better than the single lp repress version. Too bad the inners have this fault but beyond that I’m just glad I finally have a good sounding record.

Although I don't have any other version of the album to compare this to, I'd say this is an excellent reissue. The pressing is clean across both LPs, with a tidy, quiet soundscape that lets this often quiet music breathe just as it should. The remastering is also impressive; there's a good amount of detail to the sound and it's also very dynamic. I heard a few minor crackles but nothing intrusive by any means and certainly impressive by Optimal Media's patchy standards. The packaging is fairly spartan - they could have upgraded the sleeve to a gatefold considering that this is a double LP release and the misprinted inner sleeves are a shame but, overall, I'd still highly recommend this release.

Same issue here with the defect on disc one. Causes a 'bump' every time it goes round for about the first minute on both sides. Download code also didn't work! Have sent it back for a replacement.

Just bought sealed copy of this Nov. 2019 and sounds near perfect despite the length on a single lp.

Bad pressing fault on my copy over the pretty much first full minute of disc one!
Really gutted as apart from that one horrendous fault the mastering and pressing quality seem very good and i’ve been after this lp for ages, anyone else having the same issue with disc one?
