Just bought my new copy and listened to it. The record shows a moderate warp and side B is a little off-center. There are some hairlines in the A1 and B1 zone and some dimples! I am not impressed at all. There are few crackles and pop but almost no ... See full review

Man, you've got the same copy than mine. Wasted 20$ and I already owned the CD! Bought it 2 days ago and thought the pressing was revisited. I was totally wrong. At least mine was bitten with someone having all his tooth.

I found a NM copy for cheap as well. 30 canadian dollars!

My copy is a little off centered. Voices sound "electronically processed". There is a faint surface noise present throughout the record. There no bass at all on track A5; poor mastering...

Paid 33 canadian dollars for it and I must say I'm very ... See full review

Wonderful pressing as far as I am concerned. Dynamic, large soundstage. Crisp but with deep bass. Silent between tracks and perfectly flat. What else do we need from a contemporary pressing?

This is a great pressing with a lot of music. Not my favorite Coldplay album at all but it sounds especially full and dynamic on vinyl. Record is heavy and flat and there is no surface noise. Only track A5 is "contaminated" with sizzles. Probably the ... See full review

So true! I could not say more. The first three albums of The Shins are indie-pop classics.

What a good album and a perfect pressing. A lot of mold release and faint surface noise, nothing to kill the pleasure.

I believe. Oh I believe. A masterpiece like Chutes Too Narrow.

Flat record with a load of mold release. There is a "footsteps" surface noise hard to describe but the pressing is highly dynamic. I hear sibilance mostly on side B but I'm not sure if I damaged my copy by listening to it 13 years ago on a turntable not ... See full review

Wonderful pressing for a wonderful album. Record is perfectly flat and sound stage is large. Acoustic guitar are crisp. Everything is prefect about this pressing, except for the mold release product left on the record maybe. Highly recommended.

Slightly warped record bought new. Few crackles but not disturbing. Great pressing with acceptable dynamic and a full bass botom. Recommended.

Record is perfectly flat. A faint surface noise is present and there are some crackles here and there. Overly compressed. Not a dynamic pressing. Don't waste your money if you already own the CD version.

Bought my copy new but it shows a little warp. Surface noise (parasites) is present, mostly on tracks A3 and A4. A small distortion is also present (even on CD I think). Bad pressing from my point of view. Not recommended even though the album is awesome ... See full review

This pressing sounds good. Some crackling sounds here and there but nothing to worry about. Records are perfectly flat and there is no surface noise. High quality pressing with deep bass and large ambiance. Recommended pressing.

Bought my copy brand new. The record is perfectly flat and without crackle. A faint surface noise (like tape background) is present but it is not disturbing. This pressing is the way to listen to this amazing record. Recommended.

Large soundstage! Warmest "synthesizer sound" I've ever heard. Bought new on fall 2003 in Montreal (probably NOS) in a small HMV vinyl bin. The vocal is grainy and backing music clean and pure as possible. The pressing is perfect in every point of view. ... See full review

Cette version vinyl sonne comme une tonne de brique. Grosse basse analogique grasse qui ne beurre pas la tapisserie sonore aux dépends de la dynamique. Rcommandé. Peut-être un album culte dans 30 ans et on ne le sait pas encore...

I don't know if it is a first pressing or what. I bought it new in 2013 in Maine for 14$. This is a perfect pressing for me. Plenty of dynamics. Big controlled fat bass with no distortion, hissing or sibilance. My tired Rega Carbon (conical stylus) do ... See full review

If you can find a A&M brown label (olive-green?) from Canada or USA with "Sterling LH" in the matrix run out groove you'll probably be alright. Even though your copy is not NM or VG+, the album will sound more "live" and "organic" despite the noise from ... See full review

Even though it is cool to own the vinyl version, there is no significant benefit over the CD. The sound is compressed so the soundstage seems narrow. The press is silent with minor crackling noise.
Just my two cents.

There is some distortion on my copy too, especially during A4, B2 & B4. In fact, Just Like A Woman is almost not listenable. I also noticed some sibilance during few tracks (B2 & B4 for example) but I'm not sure if it comes from my budget cartridge (rega ... See full review
