    For someone that has only heard this on CD, hearing this version was a revelation. A much warmer and richer sound in comparison, very pleasant to listen to. I had no surface noise on my copy, but did have a slight warp (which didn't affect play). Yellow vinyl looks great too, don't hesitate to pick this up.

      I'm blown away at how perfect this mix is. Pressings like this are why I collect.

        How many of these were pressed? Wondering how much I should pay for a copy.

          Parachutes is my favourite album of all time. It has been with me now for 22 years and counting (I'm 36 as I write this - so the best part of 2/3 of my life) and I know it inside out. I have listened to it hundreds, if not thousands of times over. I have an original 1st pressing from 2000 - the pressing which, on the majority of the tracks, what you are listening to are direct tape transfers - and this pressing runs it extremely close. It sounds incredible. It is how I imagine an original 1st pressing from 2000 would sound in Mint condition (unfortunately, my copy is 2nd hand and as such hasn't been treated with the care and attention that I treat my records!). I am unable to do a side-by-side comparison - but for my money, for a reissue or a repress, this as close as you can get to hearing how Chris, Jonny, Guy and Will sounded in Parr Street, Rockfield, and wherever else in 1999 - 2000.

          The pressing is dynamic, punchy, rich and clean sounding. Separation is excellent, particular on the quieter tracks. Everything is extremely well balanced. It does not sound remastered from the original recordings - it just sounds like a clean copy of the 1st pressing. Pressing it on transluscent, yellow vinyl was an especially nice touch too. It just looks and sounds great!

            The mix is rich and warm. However, I have experienced persistent crackling and popping on my record as well as noticeable surface noise.

              The other reviews on this pressing aren’t lying - this is an incredible sounding record. Definitely pick this one up!

                Not a review, but I see this is still available online new from Girder music for 40$. Also, promo code on the site for 20% off your first purchase which basically covers shipping.

                  Everything positive said about this release is true. One of the finer pieces in my collection, I have experienced absolutely no issues with this pressing

                    Mine is full of cracks and pops. Sonic cleaned once, will try again otherwise this goes to the bin for me

                      I'm more in love with this than I am with the one from 2000 that I have. Just beautiful
