Is anyone selling just disk 2 of this record? Embarrassingly, I scratched mine and it's unplayable, so I'm looking to replace it.

Not confident in adding releases yet, but FYI. i picked up a version of this at FYE that mostly matches this, with the same identifiers for LP A&B sides.. But it is not a gatefold, does not have the bonus 1 sided EP with extra tracks, but it contains the CD- and the CD does have the extra tracks.

I wanna chime in and acknowledge both that this pressing sounds great, lots of low-end warmth and good dynamics, and also that, yes, it is cut a little hot on the highs. Nothing a higher-end cart can't handle, but there is a little bit of sibilance distortion throughout. I'm satisfied with my purchase.

FWIW - my copy plays great, no distortion, i've always been impressed by the dynamics and sound quality of this pressing. great album

Unfortunately the other reviews of this vinyl are accurate. This is my favorite Neko Case album, but the pressing itself is inconsistent and the distortion is very prevalent on certain tunes, or at least on my copy. Kind of a bummer.

As loobz said, the quality of this pressing is pretty bad. The distortion is ridiculous, and songs like "Man" are unlistenable. I'm better off listening to this album in MP3 format.

Great album! The deluxe double vinyl edition is a beautiful package. UNFORTUNATELY the mastering/pressing of my version is not good. The voice gets all distorted sometimes, more complicated passages are distorted as well. Stick with the cd or be more lucky.
