    I was worried this would sound awful cause I’ve never had recycled vinyl before but it sounds amazing! Love the extended intro on Evol - plus my copy is sparkly!!! Couldn’t be happier with it

      Picked this up today from my local US shop and it’s a nice pressing. Super quiet and a huge sound quality improvement over the Spotify streaming version I listened to yesterday. Glad to have a nice pressing of this minimal album. According to the promo material on the 4AD site it’s AAA. My copy is a marbled dark lavender.

      I’m not sure what the difference is between this listing and the other recycled vinyl listing. This one doesn’t have the line about limited edition on the hype sticker but was colored.

        I took a risk based on the awful reviews of the recycled vinyl and am glad I did. Seems like I was one of the lucky ones. Sounds excellent and little noise. The music is stunning and needs quiet vinyl.

          I've got my copy from the artist store and my a side is awful. It sounds like if someone played this from a smartphone speaker, recorded it and played it again.

          The b side is a bit better but this is a huge let down.
