    My copy sounds great! I got one that came without the booklet/inserts as well though. Let me know if you’re willing to sell yours!!!

      Tried two copies of this and about to try a third before giving up. Both hard warping problems due to the edge of the record getting "stuck" in the left part of the gatefold. One copy had an oversized spindle hole and was pressed way-off center, no matter how I tried to align the record before clamping it down.

      The frustrating part is that these Broadcast records are mastered well, but you are at mercy of Optimal's shoddy QC/QA practices for the pressing quality. I really wish the plant would straighten things out, because they can make great records when they want. Sadly they've fallen hard in the quality department and I typically have to try 3 copies to get one I can live with.

      If any band or label is reading this, just bear in mind Optimal may be ruining your reputation with customers.

        One of the most gorgeous sounding records in my collection, and includes the booklet.

          Really nice reissue, but no booklet with mine either :(

            mine didn't come with the booklet - everything else matches this version (barcode, stickers, runout etchings, etc)

              Just a question... the "liner notes" are some kind of joke?

                a really nice remaster and reissue of the rare original LP, which i had previously bought on CD. every sonic detail for some reason feels a bit more properly in place, the bass is more present but not overbearing, the vocals are pleasant with the effects on them and everything else being more prominent. the album is still timeless and flows as well as an album should. Reissue has a nice booklet that is not stapled but smells like nice old paper should, i ilke it and it also has a nice visual aesthetic with mostly cryptic lyrics. it is gate fold which makes sense considering the thickness of the lyrics pamphlet and also the vinyl is of decent grade, not really thin, a nice girth. overall A+

                  Good god, this repress sounds amazing. HUGE soundstage and whisper quiet. I'm noticing elements in some songs I've never heard (from CD). Amazing album and a spectacular job Warp!

                  Are all the new represses this great? BoC I'm hoping?!?!?

                    Insanely nice repress. Super quiet.

                      Fantastic album, finally repressed, and it sounds very good!
                      Although I haven't listened to an original first pressing copy of this album for direct comparison, I can say this repress has wonderfully quiet backgrounds and a nice big soundstage...A very refreshing find in a sea of mediocre reissues and represses!
                      Well done Warp Records, now I don't have to spend $100 on an original.
