    Frenetic guitars,strange & ambient noises in background,chaotic at times,whisper quiet & psychotic vocal throughout. Keeps you guessing on every track.

      Flat, silent, and beautiful looking.
      Requires some amplifier tweaking to hear it properly, however. Don't quite get this pressing technique.

        My copy was completely flat, centred and silent with no noise to speak of.

        The mastering is quite dynamic and certainly packs a punch when it gets loud. :-)

        It was pressed as a beautiful blue translucent. Gorgeous album and a must own if you’re a fan.

            First time was a disaster, as my record was badly water damaged. Thankfully, the second time around things went off without a hitch.

              As usual, Warp mail order one of the worst worldwide.

                Some UK stores sold signed copies: to my knowledge, Resident Records in Brighton. Likely others.

                  Good pressing. My only issue with it is that it’s pretty quiet. Maybe that’s why people have problems with noise?
                  • sorenindustries's avatar
                    My copy sounds fantastic. huge dynamics, and I didn't notice any record noise. Now for the music on this album, I am still not quite sure what I heard. This one needs a couple more spins.

                      Sounds very good to me. Minimal noise, just the occasional click/pop, but nothing bad. A nice flat pressing.
                      I gave it a clean--as I do with most records I buy--and it gained a bit in dynamics and clarity.
