    Definitely the worst sounding vinyl in my collection. I'm shocked by how much surface noise there is and how it's present through the ENTIRETY of every side. Both records are also very warped. Due to the nature of the music, the noise makes these unlistenable. It's a real shame, as it's a wonderful soundtrack and the artwork and record colours are lovely, but they sound horrendous.

      My copy arrived with lots of surface noise, especially on sides A and B. It's slightly better after a clean but still an unacceptable amount. It's the worst sounding record in my small collection.

      Such a shame because the soundtrack is beautiful.

        Wow, after reading the comments here, I spun up my copy expecting the worst, but I gotta say, my copy is not that bad at all. I did notice an occasional pop or surface noises, but definitely not constant or enough to ruin the record as I was expecting. I thought it sounded pretty good, and I didn't do any cleaning to the record, just unwrapped, brushed and that's it. ATLP120 with Ortofon Red stylus.

          Avoid at all cost if you are expecting to listen to the vinyl. The soundtrack is very nice and the artwork too, but the pressing is atrocious.

          My copy also features constant surface noise, static, pops and other artifacts; a true catalogue of pressing defects. Whoever pressed this should not be pressing anything at all, not even hamburgers.

          Ye be warned.

            "78by29" is 1000% correct. I bought this as a gift for somebody (knowing the above issues), and it sounded like bubblewrap warfare.

              All four sides feature constant, ever present surface noise, static, pops, and crackling even after multiple disc wipes. You've been warned!
