    Side B of my copy had a second center label stuck on which ripped right off… kinda weird but the record sounds great

      My copy bought in 2003 has more punch than VMP version.

        I recently bought this and it appears there was a misprint because my record had the “Side B” label print on both sides yet it plays the entire album. Just curious if anyone else’s copy came like this?

          A little bit of surface noise and the soundstage could be wider. However, this lends itself to the lo-fi aesthetic. Clear vocals and great instrumental clarity.

            I bought my copy way back when it came out and it has the glossy cover. I can confirm this is the og pressing. Sounds ok, nothing to write home about.

              I bought (cheaply) a sealed copy of this in 2014 which matches the matrix for this entry. I'm going to assume it's been repressed several times since way is mine 13 years old.

                This sounds so great on vinyl.
                Whatever happened, Strokes?
