Sounds great aside from the surface noise. The record is scuffed badly. Contacted Sub Pop and the seller and will hopefully get a replacement. The parts not ruined sounded great. I have a very high acceptance factor and it was too bad for me.

This has a terrible mix. It is very muddy & almost unlistenable.

This is a good press, but not an excellent press. Its clean, quiet and the mastering is super crisp. Its cut hot, but not to the point of any audible distortion. My only complaint is the bottom end, which I wish was boosted a bit and punchier. Mid and highs sound spectacular though, with good separation, but they dominate the soundstage.

What an amazing set of records. The depth and clarity on "Such Great Heights" is jaw dropping. Some minor noise at the beginning of side A but I think it's low enough to add to the overall aesthetic of "The District Sleeps Alone Tonight."

One of the clearest records I own. Crystal clear, not a sound other than the music. Stereo imaging is outstanding, great bass! I use a Loki EQ for my turntable and I found I was wanting to drop the treble some as it's a little too bright on its own. Overall amazing press.

This is probably the most perfect vinyl I own so far. When i drop the needle I hear a noise but after that it's just crystal clear. Wow. SO clear.

Good pressing. A little bright and loud to my ears. But overall, really clear, punchy and detailed

Ordered this from Tower Records for a great price ($30.00) and it came in okay shape -- The quality of the packaging is amazing. It feels like a hardcover book -very thick cardboard and there is a nice binding. You can turn 3 heavy pages and there's beautiful artwork from their EPs -- in the middle page is a gorgeous 12x12 booklet with lyrics and really cool photographs. I have played side A and side B and the pressing is excellent. You can hear nuances that I never heard on the CD back in the day. There wasn't a single bit of surface noise and I the dynamics are super. Ben's voice is clear. The mastering is amazing.

Overall I'd give this a solid 9/10. Crazy to think in a few years this will be TWENTY years old.
