    Lots of sibilance on this pressing for me, the bass also sounds unpleasant.

      I've had bad experiences with Bon Iver's pressings. Luckily, this isn't one of them. It sounds good, crisp and textured yet without static noise.

        Amazing album. Great pressing. Vinyl most definitely agrees with the home recording style of this masterpiece. Still Bon Iver's greatest release. Timeless classic.

          What the hell is quality?
          Mine came as a deep plate…..
          Never seen something before.
          It’s skipping and hopping, I will send it back to hopefully get a good one
          But don’t think so

            Pressing on both sides with bass heavy vibrating background noise. Too bad :-(

              I find this pressing to be very powerful-sounding, but certainly not perfect. Overall I was pleasantly surprised though. And the album is of course one of a kind.

                Where can I get this copy? Is it on Amazon UK?

                  Beautiful sound over a quiet backdrop on my 4AD. Nice clean thick sound. An excellent pressing.

                    Agree with some others here. This is the copy to have. Brushing noises are still present on side-b for my copy but far, far less noticeable and much less frequent. Surface noise on this pressing is night-and-day better than the US version. The cover material is thinner however which is the only drawback, but I'll take that with a much better record any day.

                      This is a wonderful album and my 4AD issue has a wonderful sound! No cracks, no shit, just pure hunting cabin sounds:)
