    My copy played great! Some minor pops but nothing major. Love the color as well!

      got this at a local record store , side a has some pops in really quiet spots, side b sounds gorge . my first disc is warped, my second disc is 140g (i think), side c sounds really good with some pops on anything,side d has a lot of crackles at the first verse and chorus of normal girl. OVERALL: it has really good bass and it sounds good for the most part, and my pressing has green swirls when you put it in the light.

        I just picked up a sealed copy, replaced the paper leaves, and did an ultrasonic clean before playing based on the reviews. It sounds nearly flawless. Dead silent with superb dynamics. I wouldn't hesitate to pick up a recent new copy of this.

          Love the album but after mixed reviews I’ve seen of the pressings, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I was fortunate enough to receive both LPs as nice translucent green, and for the most sounded really great. Side 3 had slight static. I prefer that over good packaging anyways but the inner fold seemed distorted. Told myself it’s just the style that’s fine. Then the labels look like something I would have printed out off word in 2005 and not symmetrical. Still love the album and happy it sounds great! All that really matters

            I bought this on impulse. I have heard great things about this album. Listened to it for the first time on this and It was amazing. Great album and amazing press. 10/10

              seeing the reviews on here and other resellers, i was definitely worried about the sound on my copy. i picked this up recently at a barnes and nobles after looking for over a year now, and i was very excited. after cleaning the records, i only heard around 4 pops and some static. static was vert heavy at the beginning of side a,b, and c but stopped by the time the song started. i also noticed some static during the middle of love galore and beginning of supermodel, although i did use the same dirty brush i used to clean the other sides so maybe ill reclean it in the future. i also noticed the trash paper sleeves included made the sides of disc one kinda cut off. besides that i think the records sound fine and the bad reviews on sound have either not cleaned the records well or they were just unlucky i guess. very excited to own this though 🤗

                just cleaned this record , not sure how yall clean it but after clean , my copy sound better than before

                  This variant has had multiple represses and the quality still hasn’t been fixed. Even after a wet clean, it sounds awful. I went through 3 copies and each one has cracks and loud pops every couple seconds. Side A/B also was pressed off center, and my tone arm sways badly so you can hear a slight distortion.

                    my copy is very noisy, even after a wet clean. sounds like it's mastered quite nicely otherwise, but sadly pretty distracting.

                      amazing album on a gorgeous pressing. the green is my favorite pressing and i’m glad that it’s easily accessible now that it’s been restocked! quality’s great too!!
