    The bonus tracks were already issued in the Japanese double CD edition, back in 2016. The live set's stunning.

      Mixed reviews here. My copy, bought last week is dead quiet. No surface noise or crackles. Just beautiful music.

        Don't buy it. I had 3 copies of this and they have all of them surface noise. There is not quality checks at factories anymore. You pay high price for very poor quality, they are really abusing of customers and we should stop buying this crap

          I've had several copies of the original pressings, as well as the later represses - both the US and European ones - and I was always disappointed by what they sounded like. It was really frustrating as this is one of the top 10 albums of the decade for me.

          This pressing is the best I've heard yet and miles better than the other ones. I'm quite happy with it. Warm with good dynamics. I'd recommend it. My copy doesn't have issues with crackling or pops but I realize YMMV with MPO.

            I´m a little late with Bon Iver in general so i have no idea of how bad first pressings of this really sounded. This one is ok but i think a widescreen sound like this, perfectly described by Phoebe in the liner notes as "Beach Boys on opiates" would deserve a little more than the modest vinyl-pressing skills of Jagjaguar. Side D is exceptional, intense & outstanding music but yea ... i would love to hear this on headphones without all the noise and crackles on a simple virgin black 180g vinyl, pressed by Speakers Corner ;) and yes - i cleaned both discs before i wrote this.

                I own the red urban outfitters pressing and can confirm this pressing sounds more refined and less distorted.

                  I’m happy my record sounds great. I’m quite surprised about how quiet side d is which is perfect for the tracks. Would definitely recommend picking a copy up, incredible album

                    Sadly, noisy as usual. Such a shame for this stone cold classic.

                      Despite a low amount of surface noise, this release is far, far better than the anniversary reissue of “For Emma”, which was almost unlisteneable. I don’t know what to think about the cover idea but I tend to consider it a bit dull in comparison with the wonderful watercolour on the original release.
