I agree with the sibilance. This record gives me a headache when I listen to it. Happy with my alternative that is NOT Capital:

Coldplay has been a big part of my life growing up, so happy to have this on vinyl.

No surface noise at all, but it's the first record I've bought that I noticed sounded "bad" - flat, lacking depth and dynamics, and very notable sibilance - especially on the quiet parts of "Spies." So I tested against other formats with inconclusive results. The CD and Spotify 320 kbps sounded less clipped and sibilant on "Spies," but also thinner on bass/drums/low end. Went back to the vinyl and decided it sounded best of the three playing in the background across the room. There's heavy sibilance on "Spies" in all the versions, so maybe that's just how Chris Martin sang it.

I recently upgraded my cart and tried playing albums that had horrible "Ssssssibilance" to see if anything changed. This record immediately came to mind... The sound quality improved by a lot, however the last song on side A suffered a little. This version certainly won't knock your socks off, but it's a decent pressing. It's Coldplay after all lol.

Clean heavy flat record with a lot of surface noise. No tape hiss on track A3 so probably a digital sourced master. This pressing can sound good if you DO NOT listen to any other pressing. It is not dynamic and there is a lot of saturation.

Not very dynamic at all. Very flat! Even the CD captures a much fuller, warmer, rich and detailed sound.

You guys must either be playing this album on a Crosley or have a bad setup, because this album sounds quite good to me; open and acoustically lush. The only problem I notice is sibilance on certain "S"s, most notably "Spies". However, I don't mind this, as it often shows the analog nature of the recording.

This pressing sounds so bad that we could probably open up a class action lawsuit. I have the rainbow pressing. It's so bad that I can't even bare to play it.

I thought these comments were kind of funny but I finally opened up my copy that had been sitting sealed for years.

First thing I noticed was dirty fingerprints and other white specks on the vinyl.

I used my VPI 16.5 and cleaned it but it still did not remove the slight "clicks and pops" that were evident on the intro to the side 2 song Trouble.

There was no "surface noise" on the main hit Yellow, but I was still disappointed in the quality of this release.
