    My copy is perfect. Also one of the best digital records I own.

      My copy, despite thorough cleanings, still skips and hisses. sucks because I love this album. according to others, it's a gem of a pressing. seems to be a hit or miss

        Wow, this sounds amazing. I wish everything sounded like this haha.

          I love the album, the orange record is beautiful. It sounds a bit flat but great overall!

            Plays great! Almost silent, nice dynamic range, no distortions at all!

              My copy sounds great as well ... quiet, dynamic, flat

                I guess the pressing is hit or miss. Some others here are claiming it sounds horrible and skips, but on my setup (LP120) it plays absolutely perfect. Dead silent, absolutely no sibalance, no skips. Has a slight warp, but it's extremely minor and doesn't affect play at all. In fact, it's one of the best sounding records in my collection.

                EDIT: It might be worth noting that my copy has a much more "vibrant" or "neon" orange color, than the pictures here show. I guess there are two different pressings of this limited version?

                  Finally got around to listening (and recording) my copy. Perfectly clear right through (a little bit of hiss on 's' words but might be down to static on my part), only one small pop during D3 which needed a brush over to get it to play through without skipping. Great album and a great pressing!

                    Hewn of lovely rich orange vinyl, the colour of this record reminds me of my favourite fizzy drink, which is Fanta by the way. I drink it whenever I can, even though my mam says it is very bad for my teeth and my gums!!

                      My pressing is garbage. Surface noise. Skips repeatedly. Very disappointed.
