    Absolutely essential that you clean this record. Washed my copy through the spin clean and it reduced the noise dramatically.

      I have had this for years and just gave it a listen to see if I should get the 10th anniversary pressing since I have seen good things. After listening to this, I'll hold off. It is not perfect, but I do not have any substantial surface noise, no skips or pops, and generally sounds pretty good.
      • COLinger's avatar
        Disappointed with this one. Poor pressing quality and surface noise throughout.
        • jarkmohnson's avatar
          My copy sounded fine, at least very little noise, but I also was missing a download code. However, I wouldn't recommend this particular pressing to anyone.

            My copy sounds awful. LOTS of noise, even after cleaning. Possibly a CD rip. Also, no download code.

              I have run outs that read:

              L-22-391M-A-RE-2 HTM-001
              L-22-391M-B-RE-2 HTM-001

              New press or variant?
              Not particularly thrilled with this cut. Great record but some QC issues like a bubble looking thing in the wax, somehow not audible or I otherwise missed it. Also some squiggly/ripping plastic sounding intermittent distortion on A1
