Side A and B had some surface noise, C and D sounded fantastic.

A surefire timeless classic. A natural progression for the afro-heads after breaking up At the drive-in. I remember dreading that decision at the time, but now I am truly grateful. Another At the drive-in record would just have been cursed with comparison to the perfect Relationsthip of command. This album is truly spectacular - and VMP have done an amazing job with the pressing. Been reading the reviews of some unsatisfied costumers here - but was perhaps lucky enough to get a copy that sounds really good. These pressings are sure to disappear over time and with the rate of repressings I wouldn't bet on getting another chance to own this as easily as it is now. A must in any good rock LP collection.

Received my replacement and listened to it, the static at the start of Side A was actually LOUDER than on my first one, however once the the second track started it was completely gone, unlike my first where it went the whole way through Side A. There was a brief bit again at the very end of the side before the run out.

Side B again had it at the start but not as bad as Side A, and was largely gone by the time the music really kicked off.

Largely better than my first copy but still not great and I certainly won't be getting another VMP title anytime soon after this experience.

no cocktail recipe included with this one? maybe it would be insensitive to the albums subject matter

Finally got around to listening to my copy. Some very minor static, mostly only noticeable during the quiet moments leading into the runouts.

I hope most people buying this are familiar with the album/band because the intro to the album has a ton of intentional static and distortion, and there are intentional heavy distortion effects throughout.

That may have made it difficult to distinguish any pressing defects other than very minor static leading into those runouts.

I will say that I did notice faint surface scuffs on side B and then noticed that the label on side D was severely warped and distorted preventing side D from laying flat to play side C. Unfortunately I'll be requesting a replacement from VMP.

I purchased this from a discogs seller for $48. Prior to shipment he informed me that the static issue was present. I'm usually pretty particular about my records but this one doesn't really bother me. The static is there at the beginning but was not overwhelming by any means and disappears once the music kicks in. To me, it's a non-issue and I think the overwhelming response from the dissatisfied folks is a testament to the cult-like following for this particular album. Or, perhaps I received a less egregious copy. Listening on an AT-VM540ML cartridge through an AT-LP120.

Listening to this one using a VM740ML cartridge with its MicroLine stylus was particularly painful to the ears.
The loud statickey noise was present on both discs, specially awful on the first, and while it was hammered down by the music throughout the record, it was still noticeable pretty much all along. I felt that B3 Eriatarka suffered the most.

Dunno if I was specially unlucky, but that's it. VMP is already sending me a second copy, but it still isn't the repress, so fingers crossed. I'll update this review accordingly.

Was a bit worried about this pressing after reading some reviews on here but I guess I got lucky, my copy arrived without any warping or damage and after a quick clean was good to go. Sound is crisp and clear with no surface noise, and the gatefold is decent quality with some excellent art. Not sure if I just got extremely lucky, but I'm very happy to finally own a copy of this.
