    Just purchased this and didn't receive a download code. Anyone else have this issue? Who would I contact to receive a download code?

      Very high-quality pressing. Quiet, dynamic, punchy. Wish all my favorite records were given such treatment.

        Love this record so much but such a rough amount of surface noise, particularly on B side, makes me so sad.

          Sleeve says manufactured in EU, but matrix matches this copy. Can anyone confirm this version has "Made in France" on label?

            Gorgeous pressing! Sounds richer in tone then Lost in the dream. I'm a big fan of that album, but this album/pressing has a lot more going for it. I'm thinking it was cut from tape, but either way, this is the release you want.

              Annoying surface noise throughout on brand new copy - bummer :/

                Here is a link to the vinyl reviews review of this specific pressing:
                • recordgeek60's avatar
                  I agree the mastering is superb on this album. The bass & drums are really hit hard. Unfortunately my copy has some surface noise issues, not too excessive, but annoying nonetheless.

                    Does this standard pressing sound anything like the limited coke-bottle colored vinyl?
                    • hensa's avatar
                      Stunning album which I think tops Lost in the Dream but both are great! Mastering and pressing quality are superb and comfortably one of the best sounding albums in my collection. Anyone suggesting you avoid the US copy has obviously not heard it!
