Got a white European pressing and I also have issues with a few tracks. Buzzing bass or something like that, definitely disappointed because the rest of it sounds great.

Maybe I got lucky but my copy arrived today and it's nearly flawless! Great, dynamic sound, no warps, pops or crackles. Slight surface noise is present only at the beginning of Side A. Fortunately it disappears a few seconds into the first track and cannot be heard on the rest of the LP. Amazing record from an amazing band!

received mine yesterday, was a little weary of how it would sound after reading the reviews. Mine is quiet and no noticeable pops. Bass gets a bit saturated at parts but besides that its a decent pressing.

I have the white EU pressing and it sounds awful. Horrible static throughout the entire record, clicks and pops. It's unlistenable.

Received the white pressing today and mine is sightly warped. Only really affects the first three tracks (Intro, Interlude I, Tesselate) but gives the bass a slight static crackle. Honestly not much of an issue and hardly takes away from this fantastic album, but maybe go for a different pressing.
Also the white colour makes it impossible to see where the tracks end so you can't place the needle on a specific one so I would recommended picking up the black one instead for sure!

Picked up the white version at JB HiFi in Australia. Really pretty terrible pressing, especially on the intro, as others have stated. Much of the joy of this album comes from the immaculate sound, so the last thing I want is a crappy sounding vinyl. Debating whether to return it and track down another pressing altogether...

I have the white vinyl and I don't have any issues with the sound at all. I think it's a great pressing. My only complaint is how tight the sleeve is which makes getting the vinyl in and out more difficult than most. An antistatic inner sleeves has made it easier. :)

I have the white pressing and it sounds exellent. I did not even clean the record before playing. I usually do, but this vinyl look perfectly clean.

Wonderful pressing, dead silent and well balanced, far more open-sounding than the cd !
I cleaned it right after unboxing, it had a hell lot of static !

fantastic album, but what a hell of a bad pressing (white vinyl)
