Had my doubts about the yellow vinyl, but the sound is flawless. Artwork and packaging are all top-notch. Awesome re-issue.

Sounds great. Very quiet vinyl with a warm, dynamic range.

My side A sounds great, but side B has a lot of hiss for some reason.

Mine does not have the clicks or pops that some have described. Sounds warm and inviting. One of my favorites from Josh.

180g white vinyl sounds great. Very quiet, nice dynamics. Perfect for a snowy day.

Flawless vinyl, very quiet. Songs are warm and dynamic. One of the best from 2018, but didn't hear this until recently.

Mine has a fair amount of surface noise. Probably should have guessed before I pre-ordered it. Solid album though.

Sounds great! Very clean. As over-the-top as it is, this record really holds up well over the years. That muted trumpet freak-out in the heavy sludge of The Lever... awesome.

Mine has a fair amount of surface noise. Kind of bummed, but will try to clean.

I'll admit that at first I was disappointed with this because I had trouble following some of my favorite guitar lines, almost like the mix was too muddy or something. I think after listening to the CD hundreds of times over the past two decades, it was ... See full review

Mine has more crackle in the quiet sections than I would like... maybe something to do with the GZ plant as others have mentioned? This is unfortunate since Elbow's power comes from their dynamics. Even so, it sounds pretty amazing when it's rocking. If ... See full review

Sounds rich, warm, and full. Very quiet vinyl. Pretty good album after a 14-year hiatus - a little bit of all previous styles.

My copy has a fair bit of surface noise. Side A seemed a little off to me... inconsistent pitch or something. Side B sounded better. Still happy to have this one in my collection.

Mine says 117829E1/A and 117829E2/A. Otherwise it just says BELLAV117-A, BELLAV117-B. Hope that helps.

Huge fan of Josh Rouse. As for the latest release, the A side kills it. B side... not so much. The bonus song, "Closer," should have been the final track.
