      One of my favourite 21st century albums and this is the definitive pressing. It sounds PHENOMENAL.

        Like many others, my first 3 copies of this were defective. But later replacements were all defects free. Even those defeated one, I thought the SQ was quite good. Honestly speaking it sounds better than most late new releases.
        So I wonder what people are talking about when they said it sounds bad. They must have a defect or there's something wrong with their system.
        Who compared this to Cloud Hill says Cloud Hill sounds a lot better but I'm skeptical. Both releases are from the identical master. if there is a difference. it's a pressing plant. this from Gz and the other is Optimal.
        believe it or not, nowadays GZ is doing better than Optimal IMHO. Most imperfect records i have is from Optimal. Slightly warped, non-fill etc. whereaz I don't see that much defects from GZ.
        I can give this solid 8 out of 10 for sound quality. if you can find a later defect free repress, don't hesitate to grab one.

          Not sure where VMP went wrong here. My first two copies had flaws like a lot of others experienced, but were replaced by VMP. My third copy had no flaws, but I always thought it didn't sound very good or wasn't what I expected. Worse than CD/digital. Last Friday I was in a record store that had the Cloud Hills colored vinyl and took a risk. Cloud Hills does in fact sound a LOT better. Avoid this VMP reissue.

            Mine sounds and looks great. Very happy to have this original press of this album.

              My only disappointment with this release (and it is minor in the grand scheme of things) is that the lyrics aren't included like they are with some of the other recent represses of Frances the Mute, Amputechture, etc.

                No barcode on mine so i'm assuming it's from the 1st run.

                Sounds pretty clipped and messy at times. It definitely gets more distorted as it gets closer to the center. Disc 1 is has a very noticeable warp when spinning. It does sound pretty good in those few moments where it’s a bit more clear. Drums sound powerful.

                Overall still very cool to finally own a 1st press but I won't be spinning these much.

                  Ummm it's TMV's 1st release. What more needs to be said. Get any media type and you won't be disappointed. This vinyl release is top quality and sounds huge 👌. It is a serious contender for top 5 album of all time. Just saying.

                    Very happy with my copy. Sounds fantastic on my DIY upgraded ATLP120. One complaint, and it isn't sound quality related, and this goes for all albums. Please artists/designers, please stop using artwork/lyric inserts and protective sleeves as one.....Luckily this album the insert/sleeve hybrid came intact, but how many new albums have you opened where this hybrid config was already tearing? I always add my own Sleeve City jackets to albums that do this and leave the stock sleeve/insert alone to preserve them.

                      Good music material. I listened with pleasure.
                      The sound of the soundtrack is excellent — the dynamic range is wide, the balance is even, the scene is wide, very good detail. The mass is quiet, clicks are not heard. The discs are colored (gold and dark green) light (140 grams), well centered, but my copies are very crooked (minus one star for this). A reversal envelope with a beautiful design. Inside is a folded poster with an enlarged cover photo. The inner envelopes made of thick paper are decorated with drawings.
                      In general, I recommend this album release.

                        Idk what’s wrong with these guys ears/minds, or maybe they have a sucky system/stylus. This sounds absolutely awesome! I was worried but saw a great copy for 100 at amoeba so I thought I’ll give it a shot and if it’s bad I’ll exchange it next week. Seriously is a great pressing. Yea there is slight surface noise when you first put the needle on the wax but most vinyls do. Some slight pops and crackles here and there but the music is in your face! I’m glad I didn’t get the MOV pressing because this one sounds great and is a piece of history. The mars Volta seriously made one of the best albums ever made right here! Open your mind. Let the sounds take you far away and deep inside your soul.

                        Omar and Cedric only listened to vinyl when they grew up and still do. Idk why they decided to do a silver picture disc but they must of heard it before it was released. This is how they wanted you to listen to the album and it shows. I’m so happy that I went with my gut and not these guys that have their head up their ass. That’s the only way this would sound bad lol!
