Unfortunately, my copy has a "zip" noise right before the distorted guitars start on the track Songs for the Deaf. I've cleaned the record and the problem replicates every single time. Anyone else having this issue or was I just unlucky? Otherwise a great sounding record.

The package is wonderful, the sound is SUPERB. Since a long time I was trying to get this record, but this VMP edition satisfied me a lot.
Worth the price!!!

Absolutely stunning package all the way around. Hits the needle hard, too. Worth the extra bucks if you didn’t catch it though the club.

Sadly mine was damaged with a chip right in the opening track.......Disappointed to say the least. Email VMP, and they said they would send me a new one, that was the day I received it, back on 14 Nov..... If you didn't know, as their emails have stated, that they just changed over some system, and with all the holiday issues, they got slammed with a serious backlog of issues, going back into October.....anyways, I love this album and the one I was issued sounded really nice, after that chip spot.....

This is not a bad sounding record. I was worried after reading mixed reviews but nothing about this reissue sounds flat or muddy. As a matter of fact it rocks! The sound burst our of the speakers and hits hard while Homme's vocals are intricate and delicate. Excellent definition. Focused mids. Crisp highs. Nice bass definition and larger-than-life drums. Whats most important is the music has presence and the mix is expansive and compliments the hard-energy rock 'n roll laid down on the tracks. I'm enjoying the listening experience. Also, this is the quietest pressing I've ever heard, no static, clicks or pops (and I don't say that often). Records come in black polylined sleeves. Embossed cover. A delicious package.

Pressed at Pallas (one of the best record presses in the world), this record delivers the goods conceptually, musically, and sonically. Exceptional treatment for an iconic record.

Any info on how many of these were pressed? Word

Sounds Great for me ! I wanted this record since long time and having the VMP release is just great . I joined the club for this and i'm so satisfied !

Is anyone else still waiting for their shipment of this record from VMP? I've sent 5 emails already and they still haven't even shipped it to me - 7 weeks after the purchase. I seems that VMP services are declining.
