    I seem to be fortunate with this pressing, my copy sounds beautiful and has no issues at all, seems to be luck of the draw! Fantastic album as well, one of his best.

      I must be one of the fortunate ones, my copy is great, maybe it’s because I live within view of Alexandra Palace! A real shame that it seems many owners of this wonderful album experience surface noise with their copies. If you are fortunate enough to purchase a good copy, you will be rewarded with a treat. The lingering dynamics of sound echoing around the building really add to the listening experience. As do the sounds of the music pages being turned by Nick’s wife, Susie Bick, his feet moving the pedals, even his breath and the occasional sniff etc.! Highly recommended if you can get a good one like mine, which is the 5th variant.

        Same here: tried 3 copies already. All have significant background noise, especially start C1. Waiting for copy nr 4 now… 🤞

          My copy has significant surface noise after cleaning with ultrasonic cleaned AudioDesk. The performance is lost due to the noise and the recording is not that great either. They need better engineers and mastering. It is shame!

            I have a very quiet copy. Lucky I guess.
            BTW, I cued this up with the movie Gravity.
            Great sync.
            Better than The Wizard of Oz and Dark side of the moon

              After many wet washes and anti stat gun it’s not a bad listen. The sibilance is hot across tracks though- I would have thought the mic setup would have been better I guess?

                It's ridiculous to buy the vinyl record, and have to listen to the digital file. The vinyl record, even after washing it, is impossible to hear with such noise...

                  Getting so much surface noise on my copy, I've cleaned it 3 times but to no avail. It's a shame because a good pressing of this would sound stunning

                    My variant 5 of this looks and sounds absolutely fantastic.

                      Yep lots of surface noise, pops and clicks, especially on the first run. Disc 1 is almost intolerable, disc 2 is ok. After some static treatment Disc 1 sounds slightly better. Need a proper sonic clean and see if it gets better.
