Nice pressing, high dynamics, heavy weight vinyls. My download card is not the same as in the pictures, albeit barcode is exactly the same. It's a greater matte cardboard in black and (very yellowish) white. There's a lock groove at the end of side C.

Great album and pressing. Packaging quality was very good too. The album itself can come off a little preachy, but it is one of my favorite Arcade Fire albums.

I'm experiencing pretty significant pitch issues with this pressing. I know some of the instrumentals are intentionally low-fi but I'm nearly certain my pressing is faulty...

Excellent pressing, great sound !

I had before the horrible "sonovox Presing" (disc 2 very noise) I returned to the store...
