Notes

Unlike most Post reissues after 2000, this has what appears to be first-generation typesetting on outer and inner sleeves and labels instead of lower quality reproductions of the originals. Accordingly the country of manufacture has been updated for the first time on any Post LP pressing (Germany, not England) along with the address of One Little Indian in south London.

Images on front and back cover are also slightly zoomed out compared with other later reissues, but less so than on the very first pressings. The Back To Black pressing Björk - Post uses the same zoomed out images and has the same variant runout etching but has different barcode and cat. # on back cover and labels. Additionally, the legal statement on the back cover of the Back To Black pressing has 6 lines as opposed to 5 lines in this pressing.

Same barcode, cat. #, and variant matrix etching as this Björk - Post pressing, but this pressing has no hype sticker, while the other pressing uses lower quality reproductions of images and has a hype sticker on shrink wrap.

Tracks listed sequentially both on rear sleeve and label.

    A little surface noisy on tracks like “Possibly Maybe” even after a good clean. I’ll probably give it another good clean but it still sounds great despite the bit of noise. Definitely best to clean it and pop it right into a MoFi sleeve after purchasing, since it’s initially housed in a card printed inner sleeve. Fantastic album, one of Björk’s best for sure! Her music is definitely made to be played on vinyl with a good setup.

      I uploaded some vinyl rips of this pressing, in case anyone wants to hear it.
      These are some of the best sounding songs on my pressing.

        Once cleaned with my Record Doctor this sounds fantastic. Not sure what everyone else is on about.

          My copy sounds killer! Some of the popping sounds people are hearing may be what was on the og. Possibly maybe comes to mind as a track where the effect of a worn lp was used.

            So much surface noise, it's almost unlistenable in the quiet moments. The mix it self seems decent, but I'd avoid unless you can audition it first.

              My version (in the runouts) is etched TPLP 51 A-2 and TPLP 51 B-2. However, I CANNOT find these variants anywhere on Discogs. It is a 180g black vinyl and sounds really, really good! Any help on this version is greatly appreciated.

                Sounds fine. Hyper-Ballad bass is no wear as deep as the compact disc. But it sounds good overall. I always run my LPs through and ultrasonic cleaner a must have device. I have had many new LPs with pops and clicks and other noise that went away after one short cleaning. These devices can be purchased for very reasonable prices if you look in the right places. I got mine from Amazon and it can clean 7 LPs at one time for $300.

                  are the colors on anyone else’s sleeve super washed out and faded? the labels are the same way for me.

                    This pressing (at least, my pressing) is very middle of the road, in my opinion.

                    Negatives: Unfortunately there is lotsche of schibilansche on a lot of the songsche, schpeschifically on "Hyperballad" and "The Modern Things". "It's Oh So Quiet" is, ironically, extremely quiet on the verses, but it sounds good during the chorus (although it's still not free of sibilance) This abrupt drop in volume continues through "Enjoy" and "You've Been Flirting Again". Side 2 is marginally less sibilant. Out of all the songs, "I Miss You" and “Army Of Me” sound comparably loud and clear. "Headphones" sounds surprisingly pretty alright, too. There aren't many crackles and, with it being such a quiet song anyway, it mostly avoids the curse of sibilance. In the end, this record definitely isn't audiophile (which I didn't really expect it to be in the first place), but it's tolerable if you don't mind occasional "whistles" in the place of S's.

                    Positives: The artwork and labels are stunning quality, they don't look photocopied like I've heard some of the other versions of Post seem to have. They are colorful and vibrant. This is also a heavyweight vinyl, so it was not warped when I bought it. Additionally, because this pressing is also so quiet, it largely avoids IGD, though whether or not this is an eye-for-an-eye situation is debatable. All in all, it's a bit disappointing, because the vinyl itself is so beautiful and the packaging is great quality. Might be great to frame on your wall, or something.

                    Edit: I recently got a new cartridge (an Ortofon 2M Red), which I had to align myself. Both these things combined have proven to make a huge difference. For one, “Hyperballad” sounds WAY less sibilant! Still not super dynamic, but much more listenable now. The S’s on “The Modern Things” are more defined now, whereas before they used to sound so squelched that they could have been stomped on. All in all, much improved.

                    Edit 2: Changed review

                      Some surface noise on certain parts of the record but still a great record, nonetheless
