    This is an incredibly sounding pressing. Huge dynamics and just breathtakingly beautiful sounding. Especially Quiet Houses is pure magic. It is an outstanding job of the engineers to achieve such quality, taking into consideration some of the tracks are in part home recordings.
    I echo previous reviewers in noting that this is a very warm sounding record. It is very mid-focussed and not very bright. However, this is a good thing because it highly profits the style of music and I believe this is how they intended it to sound.
    Sun Giant EP is indeed a tad noisier but only on very quiet parts such as the beginning of Drops In The River.

    Overall, highly recommended issue of this album. One of the best sounding non-audiophile vinyls in my collection, if not the best.
    Get it as long as it is still in print if you like this band.

      One of best modern pressings I have. Pancake flat and sounds like a new copy should.

        Musically great. Sonically I find this pressing a little muddy and lacking a depth that I hoped would be there. In short, given the acoustic instrumentation and vocal harmonies I was hoping the analog version would blow the digital away, but I can't really say that it does. That said, by all means there's nothing wrong with the pressing, I just don't think you're really missing out if you never hear the album this way.

          Some of the best singing I’ve ever heard. Beautiful pressing and a total bargain at that

              Fantastic LP. Prior to my first listen, I did a wet clean to remove any dust. The surface noise was pretty much nonexistent.

                This is a beauty of an album that is one of my favorites. The pressing on this is very well done and sounds very nice, the dynamics are all there and the acoustics sound pleasing to the ears.

                  Great pressing and brilliant album! However, my copy didn't come with the Sun Giant EP which broke my heart coz Mykonos is on there! I received 2 copies of the main LP inside the jacket instead. Anybody else experience this?

                    This is a stunning album. However, I'm wondering if anybody else has had issues with surface noise...especially on the EP. The dynamics of the record are wonderful and the music is superbly recorded. Vocals sound amazing. I've been through a few copies, and each seems to have surface noise...almost this constant staticky noise. Anybody else have this issue?

                      One of the sexiest records I've heard. Plenty of warm and beautiful dynamic range. Hardly any surface noise. 10/10 would recommend.
