Clear vinyl is also available in other websites, only difference is no tape obi, everything else is identical

Soulseller Records puts out gold vinyl on most of their releases as limited mailorder exclusive, standard black and other color variants are distributed to retailers. I got the red vinyl, much more fitting to the album artwork (also because gold was ... See full review

Just got my copy from Norman Records. No issues with tight inner sleeves. However my pressing seems to be different from this one (no GZ Media matrix)

Label itself hasn't been active ever since the sad Floral Shoppe "incident", but they're still present in certain social media like Reddit and Youtube insulting customers and generally being very unprofessional.

Finally back with the superior original artwork, never been a fan of the Candlelight remastered version. I'm considering selling my Back On Black version.

How does this compare to the 2008 pressing? Is it the same or is it the new band-official reissue?

That's how the B2 track is on the cassette version (same master as this one) for some reason.

If I were to guess, it was most likely pressed at the Vinyl Factory in the UK, checking the disc debossing at the center definitely matches other confirmed VF pressings here, but no way to be 100% sure

It's not the first time this happens... back in 60's and 70's, the majority of double LPs were condensed in a single LP pressing in Brazil, which means leaving several tracks off the cut. Other examples are Chicago's first two albums, both double LPs, ... See full review

Fantastic release, everything I wished for in a vinyl release of this behemoth of an album. Just one complaint, though, is the fact that the download code is a sticker glued on the 4th disc sleeve.

Avoid adding this to your collection if you have the 2018 repress, there should be another entry for the new black vinyl

Not uncommon these days, almost every European pressing plant have DMM cutting lathes, which may be less costly (DMM has two less galvanoplasty steps than lacquer) instead of actual sound benefits. DMM cutters in the US were either all scrapped or bought ... See full review

Unlike Radiohead - The Bends, this one doesn't feel like it's 180 grams. Not that it matters much, just pointing it out.

Update 2: I've swapped for a new cartridge (Nagaoka MP-110), and the distortion is gone. Guess my old cart (AT100E) wasn't doing good in the first place.

While they do suffer from quality control issues from time to time, I still prefer them over US plants such as Rainbo and URP any day of the week.

So I caved in, and bought another copy at Earcave a couple of weeks back, after losing my faith on Oesbee, and I just got it today. So my impressions: I didn't expect the vinyl itself to be lightweight (around 120g?), which is not a bad thing, but these ... See full review

Comparing this one to my original LP release (actually Panda Bear - Person Pitch, aka Rainbo pressing), it's a notable improvement. I hear a more balanced sound, detailed highs - plus proper gatefold packaging, unlike the original's single-sleeve jacket. My original LP ... See full review

Packaging and artwork is gorgeous, vinyl is crystal clear, sound is excellent. Too bad my copy came warped from transit (still playable, but very noticeable), working with PL see if I can do something about it.
