Sounds great but skips like hell. I use Technics record player and installed brand new AT cartridge with elliptical stylus and this is the only record that skips out of 20+ records I played with this cartridge.

This is one of the best sounding pressings I've ever heard.

I've listened to Unknown Pleasures in various versions and on many, many systems through the years. When putting this version on I heard elements I've not yet heard. This is apparently not a remaster, so I put that completely down to the pressing.
Absolutely insane record.

A good sounding record with a neat spin on the original cover, but this wouldn't be in my collection if i had to pay the some 70$ its going for now. But I guess someone someone is

Sounds great on my system (Rega RP10 and Apheta II). Crisp, dynamic and no pops or clicks or surface noise

This record is NOT rare, and has absolutely no reason to be selling for 77 dollars. As cool as it is, nobody should ever have to pay over 25 dollars for this. While this was selling on discogs well above 50 dollars record stores still had copies in shrink selling for MSRP

Skipped quite a bit once I first popped it on, but after a detailed cleaning of the record it plays totally normal, and yes its clearly a digital pressing but it sounds pretty damn crisp. If you bought this and it's skipping a bunch just give it a good cleaning

If your copy of this album is skipping, you need a better balanced tonearm. I was initially listening on a cheap Crosley player, and it skipped all up the disc. Put it on a hundred-dollar Audio Technica and it sounds amazing. These Mute presses & reissues are finicky - if you're not on a good player, it WILL skip, and it will skip badly. This pressing is an investment, but it's worth it.

I received a very good pressing, whisper-quiet, and sounds great.

Very good pressing. My only complaint is that it's sourced from hi-res digital. I wouldn't know the difference with my ears and my mind, it's the fact that I know - the placebo effect, if you will...

A true classic album at the start of electronic music. I have no problem at all with the pressing, for me it sounds perfectly fine.
