Almost frightening how they managed to make this sound as good as it does on 1LP. I don't have other pressings but this one is a winner!

Got a copy years ago that's packaged in an embossed box sleeve like the UK pressing. Sounds amazing.

Looks like only the deluxe edition of the new Loveless repress will feature the all-analog cut! Not sure why this is the case but glad they're doing it anyway.

Yeah he had this mix available digitally for a while and released the tape along with a new run of WLFGRL.

Is pressing this 37-min album to 2xLPs at 45rpm overkill? Maybe. Did I break down and buy this anyway? Hell yeah. Worth every dollar.

This reissue is everything you can hope for — an urgent and brilliant recording that begged for new life in a turbulent year, pressed and packaged by a company that knew exactly what it was doing (all-analog remaster, eco-friendly packaging, exemplary... See full review

It's a little bit weird that this gets reissued when there's been a perfectly fine one floating about for years - regardless this was done beautifully by Everland Psych!

The prices are steep but if you can afford it, this is the one to get. If not I... See full review

Is this pressing ok? quality issues only concern the 2017 press?


Finally played my copy today — Side A is flawless but there's some nasty non-fill on Side B. The ripping sounds wouldn't be as intrusive on most records, but... See full review

Disclosure: never had a problem with my copy of the 2016 reissue, but it's amazing how I didn't need to clean this one and it sounds *flawless*.

Bought this repress at import price the day before Wewantsounds announced their worldwide reissue. I should feel bad, but this sounds amazing enough to wipe away the pain!!

Previously owned the LITA version which was very well made, with insightful English liner notes (and an interview with Hosono himself) - but this one has a sturdy tip-on sleeve and an incredible cut by Bernie Grundman. Plus, it's still the cheaper... See full review

Highest respect to LITA for doing this so right! Can't think of any other better way to put this out.

Is it official? Probably not. Does it sound great? Hell yeah it does. Comes on dead quiet vinyl too. Good shit!

Sounds pristine! Almost every MOV title I have is really nicely pressed, this is no different.

Where did you think SV messed up with this? I've had no problems with the pressing, and it sounds leaps above streaming.
Angel Olsen - All Mirrors

Strangely that was the case for me on first playback, and at fairly low volume, but played it louder the second time and it sounds much better. I have no way to explain it, but that's what it is for me.

There's definitely going to be a lot of noise about the abundant deadwax on each side, but it sounds phenomenal! Amazing album too.

It's fine, definitely less fatiguing than streaming. Not sure who cut this but I can imagine it would sound miles better in the hands of a skilled sound engineer.

There isn't much info about the label that reissued this, and it arrived without any shrinkwrap or outer sleeve. That being said, it sounds great. Pressed on weighty vinyl, feels close to 180g. The new artwork could've used less Photoshop editing, but... See full review

The record was covered in static when opened — but it's also one of the cleanest new records I've ever gotten. It sounds fantastic too.

I think that's just your turntable. A pressing error like that wouldn't have gone unnoticed.

I think there's an error here. The other two variants of this 2019 issue list runout etchings of an in-house GZ cut, but this one has the same runout information as the original pressing.

Hmm... different runout etchings here. Is it safe to say the Bernie Grundman cut is exclusive to the US pressing? This happened with the Metallica/Lou Reed album (BG for US press, in-house GZ cut for EU).

Agreed. A homebrew cleaning solution + vinyl vac takes care of most non-cosmetic problems I have with new records. Can't wait to get this.

There's pressing issues, but it actually sounds better after a round of cleaning with a Vinyl Vac.
