      Just picked this up and had one solid listen. A quick dry wipe with felt brush as there was a little static but no noise, crackles or pops. Very quiet and the sound is great.

        Mine came with a bit of crackling at the start of the records, and the inner is a bit of a headache to handle/put inside the sleeve, but those are minor details to such a monumental piece of art. The layout materials are sturdy and a pleasure to touch.

        About the sound, without being too nerdy, after a few spins on a Project Classic turntable, Marantz PM 70008 amp and Tannoy Revolution XT6F speakers, I feel that the sound is robust, grand, very open and spacious, much of my linking.

        As with all things Swans, everything makes so much sense. If you can grab it, don't miss it or you'll regret.

          has this been for sale through the YGR website, after the first run of gatefolds sold out, or is it merely a retail pressing?

            The record sounds fantastic, though there's audible surface noise. It's great to see this press has solved the mixing issues with "YRP" and "Fan's Lament". I do feel disappointed they didn't fix the misalignment lettering on the album cover and i'm not a fan of how thick the line bits are on the side of the front and back covers. I also noticed some kind of metallic sheen to the silver in the middle. Other than that, this definitely was worth every penny. Thank you Swans.

              On the OG boxset from 2018, there were a lot of complaints over Fan's Lament on side G. (My guess is inner groove distortion if it's the song that ends that side.) Curious to hear where these copies were pressed and more importantly, if Fan's Lament sounds clean. If anyone can chime in, thanks in advance.
