Excellent pressing. This album of course has long stretches of minimalism + silence, as the title would imply. Thankfully this pressing is dead quiet and doesn't distract from those serene, impactful moments. The louder parts are crystal clear as well -- ... See full review

[quote=eliranderson] I've honestly had the exact opposite experience with Drag City. They tend to be among the better purveyors of vinyl. This one sounds and looks great as well. Maybe you can reach out and get a replacement disc seeing as at least one ... See full review

Drag City releases are quite the gamble, aren't they? When this one sounds clean, it sounds excellent. However, there's a tiny piece of something totally stuck to side A that I can't get off without actively scratching the record. Worse though, side C ... See full review

This pressing was recommended from the Hoffman forums to replace my worn out 1974 US copy. It's absolutely excellent from beginning to end on both sides. Zero surface noise, lively + detailed sound, includes an anti-static inner sleeve, and is cut from ... See full review

Awesome album, but this pressing is unfortunately plagued by persistent surface noise on both sides (at least, my copy is). No problems with distortion or sibilance though.

I was fortunate enough to grab a near mint copy about a decade ago for waaaaay less than its current value. One of the best sounding records I own, honestly. Definitely worth picking up if you happen to stumble upon it reasonably-priced. The alternate ... See full review

The new pressing by Shields cannot arrive in the mail fast enough. This was purchased along with "Loveless" around 2007, and I've never been very satisfied with either album's sound quality. It's way too loud and therefore clips most of the time. Every ... See full review

It seems this pressing is hit or miss for some people. Luckily I guess, my copy that was bought back in 2008 still sounds beautiful. I do wish there were more bottom end overall, but the rest of the mix sounds full and dynamic enough that it doesn't ... See full review

Still available for $17 from Castle Face as of 5/2018. Don't pay Discog prices quite yet!

Wonderful, clean sounding pressing. I bought this before the MOV version came out, so I don't know how that compares. I also don't know what this was sourced from (going to assume master tapes), but the sound is very dynamic + detailed regardless. The ... See full review

Excellent album; mediocre pressing though. If you're buying this, I'd recommend sticking with either the CD or digital release. The vinyl pressing clips/distorts very noticeably during pretty much every song except maybe "Flying Golem". Seems like more ... See full review
