Definitely not a pressing that does not live up to his last few albums which were spot on with mastering , this one just doesn’t have any impact. 5/10 I’d avoid .

I love this extraordinarily subtle and characteristically soulful album, but have just returned my second copy because of the issues mentioned in other reviews: i.e. dirt, B-side hiss, warping, etc. I will give it another try soon, as it seems at least some others have managed to score perfect copies, but I do wish I didn't need to go to so much trouble in order to purchase a relatively recent LP. :-(

Mastering is great, pressing is decent. A bit warped, and a concerning scuff on side b, but it all sounds good enough to keep.
What an wonderful album though. Good lord, it's definitely in his top 3.

I must be lucky because my copy sounds decent overall. As per the comments majority had issues like surface noise. Yes it was dirty but after cleaning the playback experience is overall pleasing. I don't mind the odd crackle here and there because it's not distracting to me. That's my two cents anyways. Great record by the Man.

I bought it today and it has good sound not excellent with a little noise. The dynamics are good but at Last three songs on B side have some cracks. Its very dirty from the company. I agree with the last friend, bad quality control. I cleaned it four times and its still dirty a lot. I recommend
everyone to buy the last work of cohen on CD

In common with a few of the other reviews here, my experience with this pressing is one of huge disappointment. I sent my first copy back to Amazon as the last two tracks of side B were ruined by intermittent crackles and hiss. Side A played flawlessly though. On my second copy now. The flaws on Side B last two tracks are still there but perhaps not as marked and I could live with that. However Side A is very poor with constant low frequency hissing. Beggars belief how can this pass quality control.

Agree about the issues on the last track of side B. However, this is only audible for perhaps the last 5-10 seconds of the record.
Although annoying, and an obvious defect, on balance I'm still happy as the rest of the record. My pressing at least, seemed very clean and sounded very good except for this issue. A real shame, but I can live with it.

The copy I have has some serious non-fill at the end of side B.

A stunning "Closing Time" album from L.Cohen, sadly let down by the Euro pressing company. They really have done him and the Columbia and Sony brands a huge diservice. This is my second copy and as with the first it has lots of surface scuffing, including what appear to be finger marks that won't wash out. Particularly bad on A side. I could live with that but I can't live with the crackle in the last 1/3 of each inner track song on both sides and will have to settle for the CD until I can find a different pressing. Also why isn't this packaged in a proper antistatic HDPE/paper sleeve instead of just the heavy paper one supplied? At NZ$55 a copy you'd expect better quality and care taken.

A superb album. Moving and emotional. A fitting tribute to the great man. Not I guess for the religious amongst us perhaps, but a thought provoking album. Every track is a joy. From a pressing point of view my copy is perfect in every way. Perhaps I was lucky.
