    I have mixed feelings about this release. The packaging is really premium, the coloured vinyl is really cool and solid 180g heavyweight. The audio has some imperfections such as the sibilance on You’ve Got Her In Your Pocket, and some quite prominent clicks and pops on LIttle Acorns, and in some other quieter sections of the record. But overall, my copy is pretty solid, and still an enjoyable listen of one of the all time great albums. Be interested to see how many copies was pressed of this ‘limited run’…

      What a great sounding record...looks absolutely amazing too. Great job with this release.

        Great sounding pressing, flat and no relevant clicks and pops, I found no trace of sibilance. In my experience sibilance depends more of the equipment than anything else, cartridge/amplifier. Tested same record in different equipment and it can be another world in that department

          I have this copy for a while and just acquired 2003 promo copy, right away did AB comparison between two pressing. My brief impression:
          1) 2023 (this copy) has higher gain and slight wilder sound stage. Some tracks almost made 2003 copy sound like mono.
          2) 2023 copy has boosted treble and bass. While many might prefer “cleaner sounding” of original 2003 mastering, but in my system I actually don’t mind the extra dose of dynamic.
          3) there is infamous sibilance on "You've Got Her In Your Pocket" on side two of this 2023 copy. The 2003 promo is completely free from this problem BUT at the expense of lacking top end extension, and sounding almost mono.
          So all in all, you get something and lost something take your pills but for the price of available new vinyl these days I think this is very good value (colour vinyls are nice to look at too). I will certainly keep both copies.

            I had to give mine a bath as my first attempt at side A was very poppy and clicky. After the bath it sounds fantastic. Sibilance is very strong though. 4/5

              For the people reading these reviews and are nervous about purchasing a copy I've the Japanese pressing and it's absolutely stunning. No simbalance, tics or skips. It's loud but not too loud that it loses detail.

                I got a great copy - perfectly flat, super quiet, big sound. This record looks amazing and the music sounds as dynamic as it should. Hands down best way and only way to listen to this album.

                  perfectly in good condition. but unfortunately it skips a whole lot on seven nation army.

                    Reasonably flat, fairly silent and very good sound quality. And looks ace!

                      Accurate clean transparent dynamics making this a stand out in my collection appreciation for what can be achieved with new pressings.
                      My system is very sorted to a point where it will offer the best sounding representation of a quality product that is exactly what we have here folks. 10/10 excellent pressing 👏 👌
