Fantastic pressing. And the artwork and cover are just brillant. Wanted the golden version at first (not still available) but dunk records quoted "Disclaimer: the gold colour may cause some surface noise." so I canceled my order and picked this version.
Verdict ? ZERO REGRET ! It's awesome !

I can distinctly hear the ‘white’ bits of the pressing as it spins on the A side. Beautiful pressing though… maybe I’m alone here but I think our records should be listened to first and collected second.

Anyone else got this one signed? I think the band snuck in a few signed copies and I was lucky enough to score one of those!

All in all a perfect record: Awesome music, brilliant and emotional concept, emotional rollercoaster music and on top of it a lovely coloured pressing. Departure Songs is a masterpiece and easily has become the post rock masterpiece of the 21st century.
Only way this could've been better is if it would be given the proper 180 g audiophile treatment.

Fantastic pressing and package overall. It's mastered very loud, with a consistently quiet noise floor. My copy was also a bit warped but nothing excessive, very happy with the purchase and the reasonable waiting time to get this shipped from AU to the UK (especially in these crazy times).

beautiful color but there are a bunch of small marks and hairline scratches all around the outside of my b and c sides. There are some deeper scratches that causes noises until about 2 minutes into the last dive of david shaw, and the first 30 or so seconds of challenger 1. I'm thinking this is a manufacturing problem not shipping because the hairline marks go all around the outside of the records.

Just got my copy in the mail after about a few months of waiting.

A little warped, probably due to the shipping and heat here in Canada. Nothing that a record weight can't fix.

Pressing is practically silent. I've got a couple of clicks and pops here and there, but I'm also using a LP-60, so I would assume it's the turntable rather than the record.

The inserts, lyric book, and packaging as a whole are PHENOMENAL. You can tell that the band CARES about the products they're putting out.

Kind of wishing I bought two copies, but this will be one of the gems of my collection forever.

This is the best-sounding variant of the 4 that I own. Very quiet, finally! Really glad I grabbed this before they were sold out. Most of the other variants are fairly covered in surface noise and lots of pops. This one did come with a lot of grit in the paper sleeve, so be careful on that... I suspect that is why my copy is scratched over the end of Gallant Gentleman.

David Shaw does have *some* surface noise but it is nothing like previous presses. The quiet sections are not interrupted by constant pops and white noise.

I've got a misprint on my C/D (brown) vinyl: only three quarter are splattered, the last quarter remain fully clear. I'm wondering if anyone has the same misprint.
