My pressing sounds excellent. Silent vinyl with great sound. No issues at all. I really like the album package design.
Happy with purchase.

Good packaging lots of surface noice after deep wet cleans

If anyone wants a test pressing of the 5LP official version, please reach out in my DMs! No discogs submission for this so I can’t properly list it.

Honestly, the band just feels like a bunch of charlatans at this point. The CD release and now this were pure money grabs touted as limited when in fact they were printed in large numbers. This combined with the ridiculous price point and questionable quality of the packaging/vinyl has really poured water on my 30 year long fandom. It is probably a hard pass from me next tour and album cycle (if there is one).

I thought it was a steal at 150 when I bought it. Amazing package and all the records sound superb but it looks like maybe they pressed too many to call it limited. I buy records to listen to them though and I only pay attention to after market value for amusement. I can see this bottoming out at around 70 then going back up when all the overstock dries up. I do feel for the die hards that preordered this though. At least we can finally say we all got a good pressing of a Tool album! I'd overpay for their back catalog in a similar set in a heartbeat.

Without any doubts - best LP in my collection. Fantastic sound!

Anyone that preordered this album or bought it upon release, myself include, got hosed. I’m as a big of fan of Tool as can be, and I’ll still feel this way. It’s a great package minus the flaws everyone else has mentioned….questionable binding and etchings, and obviously overpriced. Can’t help but feel slighted but still love the album beyond words.

I feel for those that purchased the signed copies. Also those that paid full price, myself included.

This is as limited as the “limited edition” Lateralus albums.

Really pleased with the sound and love this album so much. Fear Inoculum travelled with me around Europe in 2019 and I finally got to see Tool on tour at the O2 in May 2022. This set and those experiences convinced me that I needed to start growing a vinyl collection, with this being my first! From a novice's perspective, I'm really pleased with the sound. The etchings are also clear (and not blurry as some have suggested). Unfortunately the 4th LP wasn't correctly aligned on the etching side but no biggie, overall very impressed! It is expensive, I managed to get it for £138. I imagine quality control might vary. I don't really understand warping, these LPs wobble slightly, but it doesn't seem to affect the sound.

I have no lyrics for 7empest printed on the holding sleeve like the rest. Anybody else? I bought mine in the UK, but it appears to be the US press from the sticker on the shrink.
