Arrived horribly warped on both records. Very VERY poor QC on this pressing. Lots of dirt as well inside the sleeves when it arrived (sealed). That being said, after cleaning it, and using record weights on it, it is listenable. But this deserves a better release

Just received this and had first playthrough, pretty quiet all in. First disc a bit warped and label slightly off centre on side B, one of the inners had a bent corner from being jammed in not straight but otherwise fine. It's all about the music, right?

While the quality of the music is very crisp and clear, it is pulled down by some noticeable crackling, which is unfortunate, because the music truly does sound great.

Quality control for this reissue is very much lacking. The first copy I purchased had loose peices of vinyl in the sleeve which caused a circular scratch on the record. This resulted in lots of popping in the middle of side 1. The second two replacements were both very badly warped, looking like taco bowls on the turntable. Sticking with digital for this one.

A true pleasure from start to finish. A Post Rock classic. This pressing sounds fantastic to my ears.
