All versions on a single LP are very quiet, it is a long album!

I ordered a deluxe version and got this one ... I hoped for the bicolor-set, but was a bis disappointed by this (stupid) sticker sheet and a 7'' that feature the same tracks that are on the album. That is just pointless. And unfortunately my pressing is ... See full review

This is an example of pressing quality of the 2000s ... I think it was mastered by someone who doesn't care a lot for vinyl sound, it just sounds like a flat digital transfer. The vinyl has sometimes a hiss sound in between the tracks, luckily not ... See full review

The european version is a little off center on side a. I asked for a replacement, got one, was also off center ... and I found a youtube video with the same issue. I was annoyed at first but to be honest, I can't hear any wow ... sound quality is great ... See full review

My copy is a little bit warped (but playable) and also off center on side two ... you can notice it in the last two tracks on side 2. Not a quality pressing, sounds of but lousy quality control. This album deserves a better pressing plant.

Sounds perfect, very quiet ... not perfectly flat though. I read a lot of complaints about other versions, maybe the EU-pressing is better.

I have the original EU first press to compare, the EU RSD reissue sounds a little more flat but still good. The white vinyl has more "rumble noises" between the tracks, the black first is dead quiet. I prefer the original, although this one looks great ... See full review

I agree, the Teenager of the year first press also sounds better.

Mine is also off center on side 2 ... but to be honest I do not notice it too much while listening, only on some parts with sustained notes but there are not many. Nevertheless, they could have done better here. I also own the first press that sounds ... See full review

I managed to fix it with heating it a little bit and pressing it gently between two thick glassplates. Now the warp is gone ... nevertheless it was playable but it sucks to watch a dancing cartridge :).

I have the orange/green version and although the pressing is very quiet one LP is warped, although playable. Nevertheless, this sucks ... we have 2019 and they still produce warped LPs. Wtf!,

Furthermore the album itself sounds like a gigantic inner ... See full review

To be honest - it sounds terrible to me. The vinyl version is just spinning and if this is a stylistic choice, it is a bad one, because the songs are great.

Pressing quality and sound is very good, nothing to complain ... hopefully this is a licensed pressing. Downside is that I guess it is sourced from digital and the cover jacket looks a little cheap. Also no lyrics included.

4 copys of the blue version had this issue. Now I have LP1 black and LP2 blue. Limited edition of 1/1 ;-).

Happy to own reissue and also the original. Original is a little ahead soundwise. Artwork-quality is ok, but the innersleeves are rather blurry.
posted a comment on Iron Maiden - Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son. 4 months ago
Compared to the origininal this reissue does not sound as good ... biggest mistake was not to use a bigger space on each side. The runout is too long, the mastering therefore to low. My copy does not have much crackling, but you can hear the background ... See full review

Great issue of this classic. Only downside is a missing lyric sheet.

This is an excellent pressing, get it while it's available. Comes with printed inner sleeve, vinyl is dead quiet and flat.

Got the azure blue version and although the pressing is very quiet and sounds fine, it has a horrible pressing issue on LP1, Side2 in the second track. The needle jumps several seconds. It is also visible ... I exchanged it once, second copy also has ... See full review

Nevertheless, is really sucks that off center vinyl or warped vinyl is still an issue in this time of increasing vinyl sales. Vinyl is still so expensive and there is still lack of quality control, although it seems to get slightly better in the past two ... See full review

My copy sounds perfect and is also not off center. But occasionally other Cardigans albums seem to be ... so it's a good idea to check this.

Yeah, mine do sound great as well ... I just had to exchange Super extra one time because one side was off center.

Not on my version - side 4 is not off center... but I don't understand why they mastered this one on 2 LPs. 50 minutes fit perfectly on two sides.
posted a review of The Cardigans - Super Extra Gravity. 7 months ago
My album looks like a bowl on side 1 and this side is also noticeably off center ... However, I can play it, but my other Cardigans reissues are better, so I will try to exchange it. It sucks when you can hear off center and see a dancing tonearm.

My pressing is absolutely perfect and sounds great. I don‘t hear any distortions, not even a pop. In fact this one of my quietest records (and I have a big collection).

My blue signed copy is relatively noisy. I gaved it a wash, didn't get much better. Sound quality is decent.

Can someone please comment on the sound quality of this reissue? Seems like it's still bassless, or not?

Seems that I am lucky with my copy. All four sides play fine, just a few pops and clicks. No repeating scratches and no visible damages. Sound is also great.
