Bought basic version (2x Black LP) and everything is fine. Low noise, great dynamics, strong bass (which surprised me most.)

I've now been through two copies of the orange and one black and they're all horrendous. Skips all over the place. Might try and wait it out until there's a new batch pressed

Mine skips and has a lot of distortion, many comments on the Orange vinyl version having the same issues. Obviously I am not the only one having this problem. Hey at least I get an MP3 download.

Accidentally listened to the first half assuming it was a 45rpm pressing. Intense experience.

beautiful pressing, to the point you could fine tone your system with this album, sounds incredible.

My LP's are dead flat and quiet, no skips. Ordered through Amazon Canada. Amazing album from Thom and this pressing In my opinion has above average fidelity. Pretty nice package with great artwork, my only criticism is the cardstock inners tend to scuff records during shipping.

Can someone put their comments about the pressing? please thanks!
