Have a runout variant I can't find on here. Black vinyl, runout for side B is "BH-90448-01 B1" then "XLLP 556 B". No DL code or CD, just poster. Sounds pretty good too.

Not sure where the negative comments are coming from. Mine sounds perfect, and looks great with the solid white vinyl and black labels. There are some really subtle beautiful ambient sounds that can only really be appreciated in this format (in comparison to digital download/spotify etc.), and the kick drum is thumping. So if you can get a hold of one of these 180 gram beauties, I highly recommend it. I think it's one of my top 3 albums in the last decade.

A good pressing totally ruined imo due to the unbeareable noise during most of “Hannah Hunt”, which happens to be my favourite song of the album. Sigh!

If anyone had a copy of this album, but now only has the cover, I am willing to pay for the cover alone. I bought a copy of the LP but the owner did not have a cover, so I'm looking to bring it together. Message me if you're interested in selling!

My copy has some very loud pops during Obvious Bicycle, but is otherwise OK. Another less than stellar pressing from United.

This is one of the best albums released in the past ten years. That said, the vinyl pressings have thus far been absolute rubbish. Every copy I've played (and I've gone through about six on multiple players) has had a distinctive hiss in the left channel. The reason I listen to music in this format is because of how awesome it sounds. A flaw like this on a new pressing is unacceptable for me. I can't help but focus on that noise when I hear the record. So I'm just going to give up on this. If I were you, I'd wait a few years before investing, because it's a gamble if you're going to get a decent copy.

Awesome album yet the vinyl mastering/production is no miracle. I have the XLLP556 black version and it's a little hissy and has some surface noise. But overall it's OK.

I went through 3 copies before I found one without defects. The first two had the bleeding of the label on the final minute of "Young Lion". The second had the creases and other black marks. The final copy I got is almost flawless (slight bleeding of the label on the final track) and sounds great. Luckily I only paid for one. I would only purchase if you get the chance to give it a good look/ play test.

Had the same noise issues that others have noted with the white vinyl (plus what appeared to be bleeding of the label ink on side two that made the last track unlistenable)... when I swapped it out I got the regular black version, sounds flawless.
