    I’m not sure what’s going on with this album. There are moments of great clarity and then moments of overdriven distortion. I know it’s in the mix, and maybe it sounds great on CD, but not transferred to vinyl. Thankfully, there aren’t too many of those intense moments on this otherwise beautiful record.

      Bad pressing, made a little bit better by adding a weight. Still a lot of background noise and pops. They need to either repress this or stop selling it.

        Not sure if others experience this, but it sounds so quiet. I had to turn the volume up on this album much more than compared to the others I own.

          I’d take poor quality over what I have. My copy is the same on both sides. Both sides are side A! I hate when this happens! Paid GOOD money for it too!

            Not a great pressing at all. I don’t seem to have too many pops and clicks like a lot of other people here. It sounds like either a really shitty mastering or a pressing problem. The highs are an absolute god damn mess. They break up very easily and sound like static. It’s a great album absolutely ruined by a terrible pressing. Very disappointed in Jagjaguwar. I’ll steer clear of them in the future. This was a waste of money

              Mine sounds fantastic! Flat record. Sounds dynamic, lush, and full. Excellent pressing especially compared to the OG. Mine needing a little cleaning as well.

                Something is weird with this press. Mine is quiet but there are no highs at all. Seems like a mastering F up

                  I initially hated this pressing, super noisy and felt flat. I gave it a good wet washing and the pressing significantly improved. It's still noisy, but no longer off putting as before cleaning. The sound seems to have opened up as well. Great album with a passable pressing.

                    My copy is faultless. It’s one of my favourite headphone albums.

                      Great album, but sounds pretty disappointing. A lot of surface noise, irremovable static.
