    No issues with my copy. Clean and flat. No pops or clicks.

      Clean, quiet and dynamic pressing, no surface noise, decent instrument separation and details, considerably better than the cd edition I own. Hole is very tight though.

        Don't recommend buying ... I had bought this initially days ago and side b (The Figurehead) had jumped a few times, returned it and exchanged for a different copy of Pornography and does the same on another record, same track and side too... Must be a issue with cutting of the vinyl as there were indents on both records near the beginning of The Figurehead

          This is probably digitally remastered, but can anyone comment on how the pressing and mix sounds?
