No it isn't just you. The quality of NGHFB vinyl has sadly gone down rapidly with Who Built the Moon? and its singles.

I prefer my copy bought from UK in Spring of 2016 over Spotify version which I assume is the same as the CD. Just my two cents.

Not a good pressing at all. First one had one short but deep scratch on track Wednesday Pt. 1 which caused the record to skip. There were quite a lot of clicks and loud pops as well. I got another one from Noel's web store where I ordered the record. ... See full review

I've never heard of that, original loop is what's featured on CD and vinyl (never could see any other way over and over again).

Locked groove on vinyl goes on until needle is lifted from the record. So it doesn't have a particular lenght. AFAIK these 2017 remixes are all advertised so that they include the locked groove at the end of A Day in the Life. Furthermore, it has ... See full review

I didn't as that wouldn't fix the non-fill, and I just didn't feel like spending time on cleaning something that should be flawless anyways. Got it refunded so everything's alright. :)

I'd love to hear about the sound quality as well.
posted a review of Rush - Cygnus X-1. about 1 year ago
Can't really recommend this one. My disc has weird dirty looking film on it and is a bit warped which affects the sound on Side A. On top of that, both sides (but especially Side B) has lots of non-fill, so Geddy's vocals and Neil's cymbals sound very ... See full review

As far as I know, none of them. They are all made in Czech Republic, in 2008, 2012 and 2016. Could you add the matrix runouts of your copy of UYI I here: Use Your Illusion I so the pressing plant can possibly be identified. Of course check the images first so ... See full review

The matrixes of this pressing are etched or stamped ? Mines etched.

They're etched on every copy.

Have you compared it to the CD version? Noel's singing's s's are quite prominent on that as well and since the song is the last song on the album it is the most inner track of the vinyl, thus having distortion and sibilance easier than other tracks.

Pretty good pressing with no major defects. Flat, well made discs. Bit of crackling on Encore, but nothing too bad.

Not a separate release. Distributor put the sticker on, as you correctly assumed.

Yes, I got this info from my local record store as well. However, they didn't mention it being on coloured vinyl. I suspect it'll be released on standard black vinyl like the US issue.

Sound quality on my copy is mediocre, it has lots of bumps/holes that cause low frequency noise when the needle passes them. Most of them are on the A side. Overall decent pressing (especially from United) though with no major flaws.

Where is this pressed? Does this have Ⓤ in matrix?

Is this 45 RPM record? Letter M in matrix (134929M1/B1) would indicate that this is 12" record playing at 45 RPM.
