Wonderful booklet, bold, strong pressing. Sounds great and does Blackstar justice. The outter sleeve could be stronger.

Seeing more and feeling less. I can't give everything away.

One of the best albums of this century so far and it’s a must-have on vinyl. The separation and sound staging is second to none. It’s immersive and haunting all the way through

I bought this twice. The first one was such a bad print, I sent it back.
The second one is (only aafter washing twice) acceptable, but still has occasional noise here and there.
I also dispise the cover. The plastic inner which than makes the record visible through the open star makes me shriek when pulling the record out. Additionally, I think the design itself is a fail: If not put into a protective sleece this cover won't last long.
I can only understand this as in this attrocity has been committed after the master's demise, I thorougly beliebe he'd not have sanctioned this.
Well, it's one of his profoundly impressive works, so what can be done, but if there ever was a reissue, I certainly will give it a try.

I noticed that some sellers are selling the reissue "© 2016 ℗ 2015, 2016 ISO Records" instead of the first print "© & ℗ 2015 ISO" (Celebrate or MPO). From the first I ordered the first print and the reissue arrived. He denied, asking me the shipping costs for the return and putting the same release back on sale a few hours later (we hope it's the right one). At the second I asked for information, always looking for the first. He noticed the mistake and changed the insertion.

I still don't get it, I just bought this record, has not opened the shrink wrap yet, 'cause back says C 2016, P 2015, 2016 - So it's a second press, right? (The one I bought was listed as this first pressing). But the weight - shrinked with record and artwork and everything - is 517 g. Here it says the second pressing is 472 g? And, how can I tell the MPO pressing from the Celebrate pressing without opening the shrink-wrap, thank you.

Found it at a local store and its sounds great despite the occasional surface noise. Awful decision in packaging which explains the surface noise but its a heavy, flat and bass present record.

My copy is just a tad off-centered but this is not affecting playback.
The record is flat and clean without noticeable clicks or pops.

The sound is a way more dynamic that the digital version with full deep bass and huge soundstage.

I found a used copy in excellent condition, but it skips in the middle of Lazarus. Visually looks fine. Anyone else have that issue? (U-Turn Orbit Custom)
