    It's worth noting (because I care about this stuff): the track counts on each side actually match what's listed on back of jacket -- six on Side 1, and five on Side 2. Some recent pressings had 5/6 split on the actual record, creating a misprint on the jacket tracklist.

      It skips a lot for me :( Am I the only one with this issue? I’ve cleaned it and it skips in the same part on reptilia 5 times what do I do??

        Love the jacket, love the wax color even more. Sound wise, it’s pretty damn good. Highly recommend
        • themopepope's avatar
          The bottom end on this pressing is incredible! Huge bass without sounding muddy in the slightest. Even though the vocals are mixed kinda low you can still make out ever word. The only critique I have is the slight surface noise on the disc, but it’s only between tracks and doesn’t ruin the experience for me.

              fyi for any VMP (wannabe) members this just restocked on VMP

                It sounds very flat to me. No dynamic range at all. I’ll have to listen to my earlier United pressing to compare. Could be 00s recording techniques, but it sounds worse than the CD to me.

                  fantastic pressing. not much else to say about that.. silent as hell, flat as can be. one of my best sounding VMP records.

                    A portion of this run went on sale to the gerenal public and - while it was more than I normally pay for an LP - I'm so happy I decided to pull the trigger! It sounds wonderful and the attention to detail with the gold foiling, glossy jacket were a nice touch.

                      Both my girlfriend and I picked this up and both of our copies skip on A6 “Between Love and Hate”. Real bummer because the rest of the record sounds incredible. Anyone else have this experience or did we just happen to stumble on two duds?
