I bought one of the new copies and it was stamped very off-center enough that it was very distracting during playback. I sent it back.

My copy sounds great. No pops or clicks. I did wash it.. so you may want to do that.

This is 100% being repressed, so don't pay big bucks the opportunists will soon be asking unless you have zero patience. Also, agree with Hammertone, the mastering sounds very dull to me too, definitely not worth more than $25

I’m enjoying this. Maybe Si got lucky, but the vinyl sounds fine.

Excellent music of course but the vinyl release is very mediocre. This record actually sounds like a first generation CD with full "loudness wars" type compression. Somewhat noisy vinyl. One of the most disappointing records I've bought in a long time. Recommend you enjoy this one on Spotify.

A great album but a sub-par vinyl pressing. Loads of surface noise interrupting the music whenever it gets quiet. It may benefit from rigorous cleaning on my RCM-- if it improves I'll report back-- I think knowing whether a pressing is cleanable or not is important info for collectors to know.
