    Hello, could someone tell me if the vinyl contains a download card? Greetings.

      My copy plays great. No noise. I find Warren’s bass dynamics sound killer. 10/10 with the booklet

        Picked up a second hand copy today, not sure if previous owner had cleaned it or not, but sounds great. Excellent dynamics and no crackles or pops at all.

        Worth a go if you are a fan.

          Great presentation: cover and booklet very high quality. Unfortunately my copy, like almost every new vinyl I buy these days is quite visibly warped when playing. I'm also underwhelmed by the vinyl mastering. Understandably it required compression due to Ellis's super-intense bass (when copying to cassette the Dolby B chip went crazy during White Elephant), but overall the result is dull and lacks timbre compared to the digital mix. In summary, this one is mainly for looks.

            Yeah its pretty crackly throughout even after a good cleaning. Great fidelity and dynamics though. Sounds fantastic other than the noise. I'm starting to see a trend with records coming from Takt Direct. They all seem to be pretty noisey. Anyone else noticing this?

              My favourite LP of 2021!
              Sadly, (even after a clean) my pressing is quite noisy.

                  Really great dynamics on this pressing with some really heavy low end (especially on “Elephant Gun”). Not sure if it’s intended as a concept album but definitely has that feel to it. Really wonderful compositions by these two. Good stuff.

                    After cleaning with my special mix (50 % iso 50 distilled water snd 2 drops of dish detergent) and carbon fiber brushing with lots of anti stat gunning it’s spotless in sound. Brilliant! The record is still very dull and with marks though but hey it sounds great! Good luck

                      Might be the un cleanest record I’ve ever had from new. The vinyl is also dull and marked. Lots of surface noise and the dynamic range is pretty average compared to all the other records by Nick I own. Surely they must know how shit this pressing is? Great sleeve and inside design though lol
