    I got this new on Amazon in 2009 for literally $13. It sounds absolutely terrible. Crackles all over the place. Every review you read is true. Just wait for a re-release... You don't need to spend $100 on it......

      Sonido algo sucio, sobre todo en las primeras canciones, y que persiste incluso luego de haber lavado el disco. Es lamentable, porque este disco es excelente. De todas formas el sonido original de este álbum ya es algo sucio (no por nada se incluye el termino "Lo-Fi" dentro de los Estilos del disco). Sería genial una reedición que incluya las sesiones en vivo que, a mi parecer, son superiores que las versiones de estudio.

        stop paying so much for this album they will be repressing it very soon... cd version sound 10x better than lp!

          This pressing is one of the quietest I own and for that reason I barely play it. When the volume has to be that high to get it to sound loud, the tiniest pop/click (of which there are MANY) is startling and takes you out of the experience. Were it a clean pressing it wouldn’t be an issue, but even brand new out of the shrink it was a noisy yet quiet LP. Do not recommend

              The comments calling this release quiet are spot on. You really have to crank your system to get the volume up, which unfortunately also means surface noise is louder than usual.

                Purchased from new. Very noisy and crackly. Looking forward to the definitive version as I really like this album.

                  Grunge + Emo fucked and had an industrial baby. This could be on repeat for hours and won't get old.

                    Currently giving this my first listen thru after recently picked up a sealed copy.

                    The sound is interesting. There are some real pounders, tracks with a great bass line and good punch like Head Down. The A Side is good, but neither 1,000,000, Discipline or Echoplex really match the punch of Head Down.

                    Not picking up a lot of surface noise, just the occasional pop. No real complaints from me here. Although the noise does start to kick in a fair bit Lights in the Sky.

                    We know Trent doesn't record like this, but I've always sort of thought of this album as the closest he gets to a live band recording. The mix and the mastering really reflects that. Some are a bit light on the low end, others punch like we expect NIN to.

                      I just managed to get hold of a new, sealed copy. I had very low expectations based on these comments.
                      However, quiet as the pressing may be, the overall quality is ok in my opinion.
                      I find vinyl form the 2000s to have a slightly flat sound and 'Year Zero' and 'The Slip' match in that respect.

                      In summary though, once the bass kicks in results are quite rewarding for me personally. Especially on 'Disipline', 'Head Down', 'The Four Of Us Are Dying' and 'Demon Seed'. I also found 'Lights In The Sky' and 'Carona Radiata' both sounded OK considering how quiet they are.

                      All-in-all if you find a cheap copy it is worth it in my humble opinion...
