    packaging is great (though my copy came with seam splits on both inner sleeves), very deluxe. however, i compared the vinyl to the CD (same master that's on streaming) and the CD is better. the vinyl sounds dry and the bass isn't very well clarified. vocals sound better than on the CD but not enough that it's worth sacrificing the atmosphere that's so crucial to this record. the pressing quality is fine, but this was a missed opportunity to get lacquers cut at a proper mastering studio.

    as for the music, this is one of the greatest albums ever made by anyone so not much to add there. just a bit disappointed for a $65 vinyl pressing.

      Has anyone in Italy received it yet? Mine seems to be shipped two weeks ago.

        Anyone happen to come across their record without “blonde” on their cover?

            Received my copy today in Australia - very good pressing, sounding phenomenal with little to no background noise at all. Definitely will need to store the LP's in some new anti-static inner sleeves though!

              This sounds great. Outer sleeve is top notch. Inner sleeves arrived with seam splits, but I’m just glad to have the actual wax pristine. Music itself is as good as I could hope for. Dynamic and almost entirely free of outside noise.

              Mine arrived well packaged from blonded, corners all intact.

                Mine just shipped yesterday, so if yours hasn't shipped yet, don't worry!

                  Any Canadian users get theirs yet? Discogs mods keep deleting the comments so it's hard to keep track of which regions got their shipments already.

                    By far one of essential albums of our decade this was one of the most powerful performances I’ve heard and it’s great listening front to back I go back to it weekly
                    • seancascone's avatar
                      should a separate release be created for the version that’s gone out without the title on the cover?
