    Sold my old copy a while back due to the horrible noise on what is otherwise a masterpiece of a folk record, but quite happy to hear around here that the newer pressings are much better. Might pick up a newer copy in that case.

      I think others have said this but I will add my voice - mine appears to be a recent repress, and it sounds perfect. No pops, no sibilance, no distortion - it's so gentle and nice. :)

        What the hell kinda meme format is this? My brain can't make sense of it!!!

        ...what do you mean it's an album cover?!?

            There are newer pressings of this release that sounds fantastic. I have one and love it. If you can buy directly from asthmatic kitty, do it!

              Hadn’t listened to this since I upgraded from a crosley I got in high school 10 years ago, thought maybe I’d wrecked it with the subpar player. Happy to learn it’s the pressing that sounds terrible on my new system, disappointed to learn that this is pretty common for this pressing. Is there a better alternative out there? It’s unlistenable in this state.

                Mi copia es ruidosa, sugeriría evitar este disco, es lamentable que siendo un disco fundamental en la obra de Stevens, suena horrible y con una calidad inferior. Evítalo.

                  Very happy with my copy AKR099-P12.
                  Sound is very clear and didn't encountered all the previous problems I read here or there.

                    The music is great (I mean why would I be here otherwise), but at least the recording I have is... not good. It's not like, abysmal, but it suffers pretty bad distortion at loud passages, which is unfortunate. Fortunately there's not too many of those, but it is very noticeable. Surface noise is there, but it's not much worse than any other pressing with some surface noise. I would love if Sufjan would repress his albums like, competently.

                      I just got my copy direct from AKR. It is VERY heavy; based off feel alone it feels like the heaviest record I own. My scale came out to 194 grams when I weighed it. I don't know how accurate my scale is but I wasn't expecting this to be 180+ grams. It's not mentioned on any of the release pages.
