My pressing sounds amazing! Played on a Pro-ject Debut Carbon DC (2M-Red) without any problems.

Phenomenal pressing and overall product. My copy (purchased Jan. 2018) doesn't have any of the issues some others have experienced. Across all four sides there's only a few noticeable pops, mostly on side D. The tracks are mastered nicely but are a bit loud. The included sleeves are plastic-lined to protect the discs, something I have rarely seen. Lyric/artwork book is a nice addition to the overall presentation and the download card seems to actually be a sticker as well. Overall, this was a great value for the money and a very welcome addition to my collection!

Mine came in a loose shrink wrap and a transparent hype sticker. Brought from Amazon US.

Mine plays well without any issues.. Great detail in the instruments

Overall good pressing

Just grabbed one brand new and Side A skips from the start. Such a bummer, was really stoked to have this

Purchased 11/2015. Record plays flawlessly and sounds great; very fat and warm with decent detail. My only gripe with this pressing is that it was mastered a bit too loud for my tastes and the dynamics suffer as a result. I'm not sure if they are still churning these out but the issues others have previously reported are not present in my copy (skipping, surface scratches from factory, off center labels, etc.)

Pretty curious, i've ordered this album from Amazon and it sounds superb! (louder with a little bit of surface noise but nothing annoying). Played with an Audiotechnica AT-LP60 and Pro-ject Debut Carbon DC (2M-Red) without skips.

Does anyone know if there were any pressing errors on this? I just opened a sealed copy and it has multiple skips, but no visible scratches or marks.
