I have bought this limited peach pressing twice now - full retail - and it is terrible. Both copies have substantial surface noise and clearly defects in A1 and A2 - I've had bad luck with two copies of this and Neko should complain. Will look for a black vinyl version. Avoid this one.

Side 2 of this LP is pressed off center, causes the off-pitched “dragging sound”. Buyer beware .


November 21, 2018
Mine isn't quite as bad as some of the other reviews would suggest, however my copy is definitely a little noisier than I'd like (which aside from the noise, this sure does sound great, btw), and other minor complaint -- no download card, both of which are very little to ask for given that I bought this new and paid about $30.00 for it. But the triple gatefold and 12 x 12 booklet are nicely presented, and the music contained within is of course great.

Yep, mine is cleaned with an Audio Desk Pro and I'm still hearing surface noise crackling. Not happy with this pressing.


July 31, 2018
Bad pressing. Bad pops on side one and some assorted issues on side two. Really too bad that they let these get out.


July 27, 2018
Side 2 of this is perceptibly eccentric. Avoid this pressing.

colored vinyl & black are all pressed at sub-par pressing facilities: Independent Record Pressing + GZ Media - they're all gonna be noisy, warped and flawed. thats how IRP and GZ do it. just listen to Neko Case - The Worse Things Get, The Harder I Fight, The Harder I Fight, The More I Love You

Don't buy coloured ones ! Black vinyl always wins doesn't it!

I got the regular black vinyl, and I have no issue with crackling; it sounds beautiful.


June 1, 2018
Even after cleaning this with my Okki Nokki, there's significant crackling particularly on the first few tracks. Does anyone else have this issue?
