    No right channel defect on mine. Sounds great. Great. Great.

      What all does the limited edition vinyl come with? Does it come with pins and a postcard like the CD?

        The later pressings sound amazing, must have been a problem they ironed out.

          I have no problems with my copy either. There is an extremely faint crackle on Side A if you’re listening on headphones but inaudible otherwise.

            Didn't even know there was a know pressing issue with the record. Double checked mine to see if I oversaw it but thankfully it plays as expected. I remember when the Bleep website crashed because everyone was trying to preorder this.

                I'm still laughing at a) all the pressing defect on such an anticipated release b) the "limited edition" nature of it

                    My copy sounds great, I guess maybe I'm one of the lucky ones?
                    edit a month later: When I listen with my headphones there's extremely faint surface noise on the right channel on side b but nothing overbearing and definitely not noticeable through my speakers.
                    • My copy does have the crackling on the right channel, but it is incredibly minor and only seems to be on side two. other than that, this is a pretty good sounding record.
