This is the closest entry I can find to my version. My version does have the misspelled 'Jhonnie Ray' credit on Biscuit, but the quotation marks on Dummy are the 66 99 variety. Everything else matches.

My copy is amazing, literally one of my most pristine recorded Lp’s in my entire collection. Crisp and clear sounding to my ears. Very detailed.

My copy had some pops and crackles, but nothing that disturbs me too much. I actually kind of think they fit the aesthetics of the album. Sound is otherwise deep and clean, just some pops here and there.

Fantastic pressing! I never got this on CD and I was so happy to hear the vinyl. The sound is deep and very detailed

My pressing is horrible. Impossible through headphones even after two washes surface noise is unbearable.

A must-have for anyone who appreciates 90s music.

A really well mixed album. I still get chills listening to Roads on this vinyl. There’s nothing like it!

Some slight sibilance throughout the album especially with it could be sweet. Also wasn’t a big fan of the unimpressive packaging given the Immense importance of this album on trip-hop/downtempo.... On an unrelated note, I had a lot of difficulty getting this record out of the spindle. Super small spindle hole!

Finding this quite murky. Bass sounds great but mids and trebles quite muddy. Might have to play around with my setup.

Trip Hop classic. I didn't have any problems with pressing - sounds perfect for me. Although would love gatefold to be more creative

Needs cleaning but overall good pressing and by all means... amazing album every collector should own.
