26 year old record collector from the Pacific Northwest. My collection has been growing since I was 14 and consists primarily of doo-wop, classic rock, African (mostly music from Zimbabwe, Mali and Ethiopia), alternative/indie, and soul.

I have the peach and there's quite a bit of distortion that seems to also be from it being off centered. The first track sounds like someone sweeping a broom all over it

Really happy about the color of the vinyl and the overall pressing. Really quiet pressing and the drums, bass and guitar all have great dynamic. Some of DIIV's best music. Lorelai is a stunner

a gorgeous pressing that really does justice to Sigur Ros' music.

Picked up a NM copy of this at Accord on Vesterbrogade in Copenhagen. As if it's never been played. The bass and drums are super dynamic and one of the nicest pressings I've heard in a long time!

Be careful buying this. I bought a copy thinking I was getting the original artwork but got the reissue. They're listed seperately here but have the same cat# so a lot of people are putting them together. I accidentley got the reissue, gave it a spin and ... See full review

Got my VMP copy today and from the get go record one had a hair size crack on track 1 which made some really loud pops and skips. Besides that there's a lot of surface noise on all sides except the last one.
Will hopefully get a replacement soon.

Great music, but not the best pressing. My copy was pretty dirty out of the sleeve when opened, with a lot of small particles and smudges that seemed to be pressed into the vinyl. There are also a couple of ''dimples'' in the grooves, something I've ... See full review

Just got this a couple of days ago. Seems slightly warped which creates a bit of crackle as the stylus moves back and forth on the record. I've never experienced this with any other record and tampered with the tracking force and anti-skating but no ... See full review
