Inner groove distortion plagues this record. In addition sounds like a record that was fiddled around with extensively in post production.

Here is a link to the vinyl reviews review of this specific pressing:

Really nice sound quality on this one. And no crackle on A1 as others have mentioned - dead silent noise floor here. Nice wide stereo separation and the mix is good but I do feel it needs a small amount of treble boost to sound "right" to my ears in my setup - I'd rather have to remove some than add some but this is a tiny complaint at best. I wish every album was pressed this well. I think it's also worth noting that this doesn't feel as light/thin as a 140 gram, but also doesn't feel as heavy as a 180 - it seems somewhere in the middle. Anyway, this one is a 9 out of 10 for me especially considering that it was only $15 with free shipping from Amazon.

The kind of LP that every record store has ten copies of.

My vinyl, 542300-1, has a revolving surface sound *crackle* at the beginning of song 1, Weight of Love. Damn this song is unreal. Dan's guitar solo at the end-- brilliant af. But I digress. Anyone else have that surface crack at the start of Weight of Love?

I would love to hear about the sound quality of this one.

I picked up a Grey pin with black text and an "Album In Stores Now" poster too.

@Ktrump5 - I got a The Black Keys Turn Blue bag with the purchase of the CD, and the pin with the LP. The slip mat came with my Test Press.

Anyone else get any merch with their purchase of this album? I got a turntable slip mat, a poster, and a pin. Also, I won an "artwork" copy of the cover...

Does anyone else see what looks like hidden tracks pressed into the label?
