    It's simply unbelievable. To release such great music on such miserable vinyl is an insult to the artist. Especially as there is no digital version to download. I've bought this record for the third time now, washed it several times, but if the basic material and the workmanship defy any kind of quality control, you can do whatever you want. S**t remains s**t. Vinyl to get used to. I now send every second record back. But they can raise the prices. According to the motto: If you want poor quality, you should pay for it. Good quality only exists in the imagination. But my imagination suffices for the following scenario: The vinyl hype will come to its deserved end in the near future and then the moaning and groaning in the music heaven business will be great and the miserable employees will be sacked by the dozen. Every crisis harbours an opportunity for a new beginning. Hopefully with capable employees whose passion for vinyl is proverbial. I'm switching back to digital and CD, because what has been done to vinyl in the last 15 to 20 years is just another contribution to environmental pollution. Even in this industry, sustainability only looks good on paper. Au revoir le vinyle.

      take anecdotal accounts of surface noise with a grain of salt...unless youre ultrasonic cleaning thoroughly and consistently, youre going to miss some dust, its inevitable and comes with the territory. even then, something can jump on there off of your sleeve, slipmat, or any number of other surfaces the wax comes near.

      my 2020 pressing is absolutely flawless and sounds incredible

        Wow. Fantastic. No issues with my copy. Whenever I come home from performing late at night and select a record to chill to, I’m always looking for something like this. Relaxing and yet stimulating to the mind. And way more interesting than minimalism. Vinyl sounds beautiful.

          Crackle and pops riddle the B side for me, but as is life. It's all a tragedy!

            No issues with my pressing. The inner sleeve is very tight and stiff, though, and so this went straight into a poly liner. Absolutely beautiful music.

              Finally tried my luck on a 2017 & a 2020 reissue.
              2020 is better QC wise. Way less pop-cracks even though it's still a bit too noisy on A1.
              2017 wasn't too bad for me, but those pops were very annoing on the quieter moments.
              2020 has a polylined sleeve.
              2017 has a tip-on jacket.
              WRWTFWW improved (a bit) their game, but it's not flawless so... Pick your poison!

                Cut from original analog reels. AAA. And no pops for me.

                  Unfortunately I didn't read this page in time. Disappointed that my brand new, sealed copy also has a lot of pops and cracks on the b-side. it's really annoying. I'm not a stickler about this kind of stuff, but it detracts a lot from the music so much so I have a really hard time enjoying the record. Don't purchase this

                    Pops throughout first half of side B here, pretty annoying :( Good pressing other than that.

                      Excellent pressing. Beautiful sound, quiet, lush. What more can you ask for?
