    Like the person said below, this is horribly mixed. The music sounds flat and lifeless. Such a shame bc this album is killer. On the plus side, it’s clean and noise-free. Hoping for a remaster soon

      My pressing it's ok but there's something gone wrong probably in the final mix: it appears a flat sound and lacks any dynamics in the loudest songs. This kind of music needs high volumes but the result is an annoying greyness in which a part of their greatness is lost. The feeling is that of having to constantly change the equalization of the system as in '''6/1'' just before and after a fantastic wall of guitars.. I'm not a sound engineering and I may have said nonsense but my impression is that the sound of the record did not come out entirely as the band would have liked

        Dead Oceans shouldn't be allowed near wax, this isn't the only release of theirs with awful quality control. Really bad, takes away from how energetic this album is.
        Edit: turning up the bass on this is a MUST! Main issue with the pressing is a lack of punch.

          This press is so much bad! It should be mid-priced ..

            my pressing is good except for a ticking on the run in on side 2. great album

              Pretty bad pressing. Hissy all the way through. Cleaning it did nothing.

                strange thing: "human, for a minute" and "6/1" are having gapless playback, but "great dog" separates them in between. is it mistake or kind of idea?

                  My pressing of Side A has excessive surface noise in left channel from 2nd track on. Raised issue with Rough Trade. Anyone else had issue?

                    I don't own a copy so I haven't entered it, but the Japanese CD release has 3 bonus tracks- Woodblock, and two demos (Alphabet and Water In The Well). Total runtime of that release is 51 minutes.

                      Notes on pressing numbers:

                      There is a "Translucent Blue" Japan only release limited to 300 copies, sold by Big Cartel. It came with the same limited signed screenprint that many of the other variants were sold with.

                      Vinyl Me Please (USA) had a "Marble Blue" exclusive pressing that is numbered/foil stamped, limited to 500 copies.

                      German exclusive "Smoke Marble" limited to 1,000 copies.

                      "Opaque Pink" limited to 4,000 copies. Some retailers offered it with the signed art screenprint. Recordstore (UK) offered a fully signed additional spare sleeve with the Opaque Pink as an exclusive.

                      The pre-order from Shame's website was the "Galaxy Pink" variant.The first 500 pre-orders received a free Christmas card which doubles as a flexi-disc featuring a "completely original & exclusive shame Holiday song*. The "Galaxy Pink" variant is also referred to as the "Indies only" pressing by several retailers. It was sold both with and without a signed insert/screenprint. Unknown number of copies.

                      The "Cloudy Clear" variant appears to be a French exclusive. Unknown number of copies.

                      A "Blue/Black" variant was offered by Secretly Store to members only. Unknown number of copies.

                      If you know pressing numbers for the Galaxy Pink, Cloudy Clear and Blue/Black variants, let us know!
