    is there any issue of this lp that actually doesn't sound awful and distorted?

    I have the BongLoad48 Limited coke bottle swirl colored vinyl and I love it. I just played it all the way through on my 4 speaker component stereo set up and it's just lovely sounding. Plus I just got a new needle so that even helped matters. I used to have the 1st BL pressing of XO and I've always been impressed with how BL's records sound. Apparently Geffen's been repressing Figure 8 also and it doesn't sound too nice. That's a shame.

    I'm having the same complaint for one I bought in 2015! And, this is the second one from two different pressings (one from a few years back was also noisy and crowded) ...I suggest taking away their (City Hall Records) Crosley's.

    I think, this album is a turning point in Elliott's works. The whole atmosphere changes right from here: depressiveness and gloominess dissolve, making way for feeling of freedom and happiness. This album gives a "second wind", a breath of fresh after sitting in stuffy room. The songs i can mark out as the best one's are: "Son Of Sam", "Somebody That I Used To Know", "L. A.", "Wouldn't Mama Be Proud" and "Can't Make A Sound". Listenning to the album is recommended. =)
