I bought this on day of release in the UK and it is the Townhouse pressing. It has always sounded amazing to me, though it's worth noting the band actually only wanted this released on CD at the time, or at least that was what was reported in the press.

Although the way to my turntable was not easy, my patience was repaid. This is a true gem in my collection. Thanks Kevin..not words, play it and close your eyes..;)

Tennessee American here, just got mine today. A little crackly in the quiet parts but once music kicks in it's loud and perfect. Also a tiny tiny tiny bit warped but doesn't affect anything (pitch bending is literally one of the ingredients that made the album sound how it sounds so i don't think a badly warped copy would really affect it?). Can't speak on the sound of an original pressing or a comparison but overall very impressed and happy with this one.

I have two original Creation presses, that awful Plain pressing, the interesting German bootleg, and now the (presumably) definitive version on the way. For better or worse, each pressing seems to offer something different. I'm going to keep them all and do some comparisons once the represses arrive. Might make a video about it too. Ah, I am so excited!

To everyone that is waiting for a reissue. Just ask yourself. Are you a true record collector or a hipster? A true record collector would want a 1st pressing of this classic and not settle for a reissue. I can tell you that this is the 1st press to own. The U.K. Creation townhouse dmm is where it's at. Hold out for a nice copy at $150 to $200. It's worth the extra $ difference to own the 1st press. If not, then just stream it or buy the cd. No need to buy any reissues.

Is there a vinyl pressing anywhere that doesn't screw over the buyer? I know the Plain version released in the U.S. is crap, but was hoping for better from Creation, but I'm seeing bad ratings/reviews for that (unofficial) Creation U.S. version too. Are the pressings in the rest of the world by Creation, anyone, good? Thanks, please advise.

I've had my Creation vinyl edition since 1995. The album truly is one of the best recordings ever. It's the king of all shoegaze albums never to be taken off the throne!

To clear up the confusion over the Townhouse/MPO issue.
MPO pressed both glider and Tremolo ep's (in the 12 months or so previous to Loveless). An initial run of Loveless was pressed at MPO in France, before the switch to Townhouse in the UK (made using a second master) - this master then ran its course at which point the MPO master which still had some life in it after the initial run was used to press up the rest back in the UK. simples.
so the actual first run is MPO (those not crossed out)
then the switch to Townsend shortly after.
then the switch back to the MPO master but this time with the MPO crossed out and UK labels attached to back of sleeve.
