Wanted this, though I have the Japanese reissue cds. Yesterday I happily found a mint/sealed copy here in the US for $23.99+ $2.99 shipping, because after seeing import copies here in stores priced at $37.99 + tax I wasn't going to bother.

Meh.. the pressing is mostly fine. I'm not a newbie, have an Okki Nokki for cleaning, Disc Keeper or MoFi sleeves, an Ortofon Blue and a Rega RP3.. there's some surface noise on the initial few spins of my copy (#01669) on side 1. They go away fairly ... See full review

To be clear: it’s a most welcomed repress by Claremont 56 on double lp but NOT in a gatefold sleeve and not numbered, though it IS limited to 300 copies. And it’s FLYING off the virtual Bandcamp shelf. There were 34 copies left when I ordered 5 hrs ago, ... See full review

Sorry for your troubles. My copy arrived with the beginnings of a nasty top front outer jacket seam split. I contacted ROG immediately asking for a possible replacement JACKET, and today, a new copy of the complete album with no seam split arrived. They ... See full review

There will still be some purists who will want the original, unaltered version, so I suspect there will always be people out there who will pay a premium for the first pressing... but I think those looking for $300 for a copy will find themselves still ... See full review

Yes . My original pressing also came with the insert.

Absolutely spot on. It’s always exciting to see a long established band break with tradition and expectation and knock it out of the park, as Low have done here.

I’ve got the clear copy and the pressing is very good. Cleaned pre-first play on an Okki Nokki. I’ve
played my copy front to back a few times already and can report the pressing, while not audiophile, does not suffer from pops and clicks.

This 2014 pressing was not limited to 1000. The 2013 pressing was, as part of the Virgin Records 40th Anniversary.
posted a comment on Massive Attack - Mezzanine. 5 months ago
The 2013 cover is framed slightly differently then the one above.. the 2013 limited edition shows more ‘claw’ (?) at the top of the lp cover than this cover does. Also, on the dead wax matrix number, there is a ∆ or ∇ added to the end of the number on ... See full review

It’s a really really good pressing, as well. Anybody who tells you colored vinyl is faddish and hipster-ish and sounds bad... point them here: 3 colors and fabulous.

I clean everything immediately on my Okki Nokki right off the bat, and have played this lp front to back several times already and have no noise issues at all.

Mine arrived today, and I had read your (worrisome) post about the popping and clicking yesterday. Happy to report mine arrived fine, and I was very relieved as I'm in the US and I ordered this via Amazon UK. Hope your replacement copy arrives clean.

Arrived today... bit of a visual mess as far as the gatefold interior layout goes (misspellings, and the artwork of the 2003 cd singles (included as bonus tracks on the second lp) are just sort sort of haphazardly placed together), BUT, I will say the ... See full review

I had some NASTY effing surface noise on Side 4 that began mid-way into ‘Monks Mood’ and basically continued thru ‘Angel’ which killed the.. errr... MOOD of the side, ( 1/4 of the entire album). Cleaned with an Okki Nokki (helped a bit), otherwise, 3/4 ... See full review

FINALLY getting around to
Listening to mine I got directly from the label a week or so after RSD. The vinyl itself is not perfectly flat, but it’s absolutely quiet. I’m actually shocked it’s so quiet as I sit here watching it spin!

Side 1, both Aladdin Sane and Oh! You Pretty Things are annoying: clicky, poppy and static-y. The blue vinyl was cleaned on my Okki Nokki and while it LOOKS immaculate, the SOUND is only okay. Bummer.
