    Only quality issue I've noticed is a slight muddy sound during the second half of the second track. Didn't notice any bad warping or anything like that. Excellent music. Has a krautrock meets Steve Reich sort of vibe. It's a great record to get lost in and take your mind to interesting places.

      The warp issues seem to be isolated to the standard black version. Is this true?

        I’ll be the 4th to say my disc is horribly warped. If I were Horse Lords/Northern Spy I’d ask the pressing plant for my money back. It’s beyond bad. This makes me worrisome about buying anything else from them.

          I can second that the quality is bad here unfortunately. I returned my first copy which was warped to the point of being absolutely unplayable, and then seem to have been "lucky" with the second copy, in that it is only slightly warped, and so I've kept that one. To be fair, the sound is ok though.

            Magnificent music, but don't buy without possibility of free return. My copy was very heavily warped out of the box.
            EDIT: bought it again from it different vendor and it was just as ridiculously warped. Abysmal quality control.

            Dear people of Horse Lords and Northern Spy, your music is awesome. So please stop working with those crappy pressing plants.
