    My unopened pressing came with a notable scuff through the whole closing passage of Western, which pops especially loud given how quietly this pressing is mixed. Other than that it sounds really awesome, will be 5 stars if my replacement is in better shape.

      Wow the instrument seperation is crazy good on this. The vinyl is probably the lowest mixed record I own, which makes noise a lot more noticeable, apart from that it sounds perfect.

          Best pressing I've heard in a while, especially side A

            Mine has a lot of static and whooshing on Side B even after a clean and zerostat. Maybe I just need to break it in with a couple more plays

              Black Midi has become one of my all-time favorite bands as of recent. Saw them recently in Central Park and their energy is unmatched. Top tier music

                  this pressing sounds great overall, very clear and dynamic, and all parts of the mix sound well defined. the volume is a bit low, presumably to fit 23+ min on side a, but it doesn’t affect the mix or anything. however, toward the end of side a there’s some surface noise, and at the very end there’s a spot of white residue which makes loud static noises. this would be a 5 star pressing if not for this issue, idk how this even passed qc.

                    Fantastic pressing and extraordinary music. A real English feel to it as well. It's like the soundtrack of walking around a city at night. All the lights blaring out. Walking for the sake of walking. Feeling so disconnected because it's all new but all the same. I feels so empty. That feeling is what this album captures for me

                      What a magnificent pressing! Such a glorious pressing! Nice and thick and sounds everything with all the instruments shining through!
