Absolutely amazing album but the first side is practically unlistenable as previous commenters have alluded to. Dreadful hissing and crackling mainly in the right channel. I wouldn't bother buying this copy and wait until the LRS/indie rerelease comes out later this year. So disappointing.

From early 2020 to early '21 I worked at the pressing plant that does this record and all of it's variations (among many other titles.) Hate to say it but the people in charge did not and I'm sure still do not care about quality control. It answered many questions I've had throughout the years. I'd say all quality issues with the vinyl itself can be blamed on the pressing plant.

Why? Everything was rushed and it wasn't any employee's idea. The pressure was always on to crank out records barely within spec.

Surface noise? Rushed pressing, maybe a "bad cut" that the label didn't mind. I will say that during my year there I do not recall any jobs where the client requested vinyl regrinds- we always used virgin compound.

Pops and clicks? Rushed pressing. Only *a few times* a badly cut stamper- we didn't make those. More often than not, stampers were re-cut and another set of test pressings went out before production. Some labels have a tighter budget so they may have even allowed a defect or two slip by. It's not an inexpensive process. Well cut stamper that's worn out? "Boss, these sounds like shit." It was the end of the run and we had to get the job out the door.

Warps? Had to crank out records- the less time a record rests on the press after it's stamped, it warps from temperature shock. Thought your record got warped from shipping during moderate to extreme weather? "Ehh" storage at the distributor/retailer? Mmmmm it was probably the pressing plant.

Pitch modulation from needle/tonearm sway? Also from a bad cut. Our guys were damn good a centering the stamps. Every pressing we did of "Monsters" by The Midnight was doomed. Stampers were never re-cut, only duplicated from the mother.

Recall COVID-like symptoms within days of touching one of IRP's pressings? Not likely but not impossible..don't ask.

Record jacket seam splits? Always happen during shipping after the final product is fully assembled (dare I say, an act of God.) I now understand why many resellers ship the record *outside* of the jacket.

If you like artists from Dead Oceans, Thirty Tigers, Jagjaguar, XL, Epitaph (honored to have degraded their catalog), a few NinjaTune titles, some Friday Music reissues, Sanctuary/BMG (we did the 2020 "Number of the Beast" and "Iron Maiden" reissues), and some Universal titles just to name a few- yes, you are one lucky person if you get a great piece.

I read a review of the place here on Discogs right after I applied. Someone referred to them as "The new Rainbo Records," speaking of their pressing quality. Couldn't be more true. Go figure, they bought some of Rainbo's jacket/sleeve/insert inventory after they shut down in late 2019. What a mess. Sorry for being long-winded. Dream job turned total nightmare. =)

Wonderful album but this pressing is not very good. Definitely not flat and quite a lot of pops. Comes with a "free high quality digital version of the recording", which turns out to be a mp3 download... well...

I really hope the new gold variant from UO is better than the other colored pressings.
I have the black copy and it still has plenty of floor noise and pops. There are pops during the last track which pretty much ruin my enjoyment of the finale of the album, even after several good cleanings. I have pressings from the 80's that sound better than this.

I have now bought the TTL and the Merlot Swirl variant and they are all so noisy. I am going to be forced to buy a black copy. Super unfortunate.

I haven't heard the colored pressings (because they sound like a waste of time and money according to the numerous reviews online), but my black sounds pretty darn good. A little surface noise for a few seconds at the beginning of side A, but after that, smooth sailing!

Pretty bad. There is no area on my pressing that isn't scuffed or scratched, but it sounds ok. Side A has some pops and sibilance, which is tolerable, but the first track of side B has some kind of residue causing pops and crackles throughout the first few seconds of the track. After a spin-cleaning it still didn't come off. It's not terrible, but it can definitely be way, way better.

Sounds like all the recent positive reviews people are giving are of a repress done by GZ instead of wherever the first pressing (and the color variants) were done, not this version. There is a second listing of black vinyl pressed by GZ in the master release page.
