Awesome 12" BUT terrible quality pressing. Has a small but deep warp right at start. Needle skips!!!

Terrible quality pressing. First copy of 12" has a small but deep warp right at start. Needle skips bad. Second copy recieved has pit or dimple same exact spot. Needle thumps and skips. So frustrating, because rest of track sounds more amazing than I've ever heard :(

My US copy is clean, dynamic, and overall a very well done pressing. They're going fast at my local RS.

Not very limited my local record store amoeba music had at least 100 if not more and let's just say they're not exactly flying off the shelves

Dubious quality pressing i'm afraid. Just played it and the A side seems to have some heat damage on my copy. Played through but the start of the B side had some skips and jumps. It's from where they pack them so quickly after pressing and seal them in cellophane. The quality control from these people is abject.

It is official. i've just picked up copies of the 12 and pic disc for myself but the shops are not allowed to advertise it or sell online. So you have to call in or maybe phone them.

This and the 7" are supposedly getting officially released June 16th. So yes it is official and you hopefully shouldn't have to pay flipper prices.
