    Very mixed bag with this pressing it seems. Mine is littered with surface noise and pops on both a and b. B is probably slightly better. A shame because it’s a beautiful album.

      Does this listing include colored copies? The other listing specifically says recycled and coloured.

        Great quality artwork and inserts!
        Got a red color variant. It came with a little bit of dust, gave it a nice clean and it sounds fantastic… Longer cuts on songs, the music on it is just beautiful and the LP format elevates it in sound and feeling.

          No issues with my pressing. Silent and great sounding. Feels like Adrianne is in the room with you telling stories.

            A beautiful album. The all-analog mastering really stands out. I have a few recycled vinyl now and this is one of the best sounding ones

              my copy is very noisy. lots of pops and surface noise, as expected for a recycled pressing. love the album itself, another masterpiece

                B1 is marred with pop flaws on mine. It's tough since it's a piano, strings and voice ballad. The rest is mostly fine.

                  Have the recycled version and just like the last Big Thief album on recycled vinyl, it’s noisy as heck. Lots of pops, tics, and tear sounds. Listened with Focal Clear headphones.
