    i wonder if they repressed some of the sufjan albums with better QA this time? My copies from the record store of this album and Michigan have been impeccable

      Really disappointing pressing. If I didn’t love these songs so much I’d never play it.

        I agree that Sufjan's voice isnt mastered right, the s/sh's are sibilant and distorted. I thought it was my new cartridge, but its not, its this record.

          Decent 2016 pressing although not perfect. Flat and only very few small clicks. Much better than I feared in advance, since I have bought Sufjan records that were pure trash vinyl.

              This pressing sounds like crap. Every high frequency sound like /s/ or "sh" is totally distorted and overpowers everything else on the mix. I'm so disappointed because this is such an awesome album. Should have consulted discogs prior to buying but didn't because my pressing of Illinoise sounds so great. I assumed this one would too - I was wrong. :(

                My copy has Side A stickers on both sides of the vinyl. Quite amusing and confusing.

                    Another day, another crappy vinyl pressing of a great Sufjan Stevens album. I am not sure why I waste my time on these. This album basically sounds like someone is standing in the background tearing paper throughout the entire album. You'd think Asthmatic Kitty (apparently owned by Sufjan himself) would put in a little effort and get some good vinyl pressings for their flagship artist.

                      Happy to announce, this is seems to be a nice and proper release. The sound is good and clean.
