    This is hands down the best pressing of Silent Alarm. The 3LP pressing pressed at RTI gives the best soundstage possible yet for this record. I have heard the 2015 and the the 2018 pressings and this one beats it.

      I see many comments here from people that really don't have this three LP first pressing...please guys, check the details before you post comments under the wrong listing.
      About sound quality now....sounds great! Really punchy and clear throughout, I bought a Near Mint copy years ago and grooves are very quiet with no surface noise.
      My only (minor) complaint is about the fact that there are no printed inner sleeves or insert, that would have been a nice touch...

        Incredible press. All 3 LPs sound great. Clean, flat disc that playback very well. The album itself is fantastic too.

          The 12" included with this album has got to be THE noisiest pressing I have ever heard. I mean, the signal to noise ratio is like 1.5:1. At first, I thought that maybe someone was going for a retro-vinyl sound, but even the sections between tracks are incredibly noisy, with TONS of white noise and crackle. Not cool for a premium product!

            Has anyone just got disc 1? Just found a second hand copy and only disc 1 is a bit beat up

              One of my best thriftstore and such finds in San Francisco, if memory serves me right, for like $1. I found the bonus 12" w/o the 2xLP album among all the garbage records. It sounds and is fantastic.

                Uh, does anyone else's sound terrible? I stumbled upon one of these cheap at a local today running on a ProJect and decent speakers and all that jazz it just sounds abysmal. Like, "this is sourced from 192s" bad.

                Helicopter must have been sourced from 192s of the Guitar Hero DS version.

                  The first time I heard this incredible album open with Every Time is the Last Time, I thought I’d put on the wrong record, now I can’t live without it rolling into Like Eating Glass. Easily in my top 10 albums of the 2000s
