These quarantine performances were a much needed and appreciated respite for fans. The Boxset itself is a delightful curio/collectible, but I grabbed the digital download to actually play as the lathe cut 7”s are not great sounding, or convenient (and... See full review

I know this release is controversial b/c of royalties etc., but my pressing is quite clean. None of the pops or
Clocks you say yours has.

Contact VMP ASAP. You’ve unfortunately gotten a bad copy, as you can see from the other comments here, the pressing is excellent.

Looks great. Heavy, flat, almost zero surface noise, but the mastering is flat and almost lifeless.

I’ve got the clear vinyl. It’s got a very good
Soundstage. There is a tiny bit of occasional between track surface noise, I’ll give it a 7.5-8/10

I renewed for the year since they offered me a deal: $299 instead of $399, so at about $24 per month, I’m actually paying less than my previous month to month plan.

I had an almost perfect 12” thin ring of edge plastic come off the edge of mine right out of the sleeve! I’ve got 4000 records, been collecting for YEARS and have never seen anything like that!

Well, it might, though at the rate the VMP release sold out (they offered potential swappers an additional 20% store credit), I’d expect to see prices rebound until the eventual repress... which now wil be more expensive anyway, since VMP just... See full review

My copy has just arrived and all 3 records are BADLY dished, with a crushed lower left corner jacket. I knew there was likely going to be trouble the second the postman handed it to me. I’ve reached out to VMP in hopes of a playable replacement. First... See full review

I do have have a split second of no-fill noise in the first seconds of ‘She Saw The World’ that almost sounds like an errant electric snare snap, I actually had to go back to the digital to confirm it’s a pressing flaw and not just something... See full review

I’ve got a perfectly perfect looking album with annoying surface noise thru half of A1. (At least ‘Exile’ doesn't skip on my copy, so at least there’s that!). It’s like they knew the pressing was sub-par since they included a CD.
Disappointing, as... See full review

Yikes.
I’m spinning mine on a Rega RP3 with an Ortofon Blue (which can be unforgiving) and have no issues at all. I ordered mine through HMV Germany.
