Just listening to this on my ATLP120/AT95E/Pro-ject MaiA/Sony MDR 7506-combo, and holy dang this record sounds great!

Anybody (preferably in the UK) got a C/D side they could sell me? My copy only came with the first disc and the seller refused to replace it - gutted!

For those curious about the vinyl vs. CD differences, this forum post gives a pretty good rundown: http://www.escapistmagazine.com/forums/read/326.256835-Small-Waves-reviews-Godspeed-You-Black-Emperor-F-A-infinity-Vinyl-vs-CD

I think all the differences in peoples copies are due to this being repressed multiple times. I have a copy I bought new in 2000 (probably a first press) and it still sounds amazing after several plays and 16 years. Always has been better and warmer than the cd. Likely with each repress the quality is going down. I only say that because this lp is still and always has been avalible. Constilation will not let top sellers go out of print. Probably a ton of different newer/older pressings floating around.

My record sounds amazing. There is a few pops here and there but overall it sounds great!

My copy is fantastic, and with the great price buying directly from Constellation... its an incredibly valuable buy. Well worth it.

My copy has nearly zero surface noise, but all four sides are slightly off-centered. Doesn't really affect the sound but gets on my nerves regardless.

I'm not sure why people are complaining about the sound, mines sounds better than the mp3 without a doubt, very little surface noise and certainly not muddy.

For sound quality you're better off with the digital release. Very narrow, muddy and lacking drive. Get it cheap directly from Constellation, better yet get the CD.

My copy has a ton of surface noise at the beginning of each side, it's worse on the A/B disc. Anyone else have this problem? I got mine at Amoeba and I'm 100% sure it was new. Also, my records came in the sleeves where the guy is being scolded for A/B and the guy is getting his hands cut off for C/D, but it seems like it should be the reverse. Is that normal?

Also worth noting that my inner sleeves are different from the pictures. Both sides of the sleeves are the same height on mine, in the pics the side made up of photos is shorter.
