    zeppelinrecords's profile picture
    Bought a second copy and that was even worse straight out of the seal - a real bummer but proves that Light In The Attic doesn't care or have the knowledge on how to reissue a vinyl record. This copy had been badly scratched on one side (most likely poor handling at the plant) and they refuse replacements.
    zeppelinrecords's profile picture
    Not the highest quality pressing, slightly warped right out of sealed jacket... pick up tracks a bit sideways... Plays allright though. I would say that visually it is a bit of a mess and playback is acceptable (3/5)
