The 2xLP is 45RPM, which spin a lot faster on your record player. That means more information is played from the grooves per second, which basically translates to superior audio quality.

Edit: 25th of March 2018: it's available on Newbury Comics. Buy it from them! Waaaay cheaper.

It's a great sounding record. And a looker, too.

For the low price of fifteen dollars I would recommend it. But it comes some distracting surface noise. Mostly returning pops, as if the vinyl was scratched in the factory.

Anywat: from the three Matrix scores, this one might be the most listenable. ... See full review

Same here. It's quite the noisy pressing. But it looks amazing and for the price that's okay.

Mine sounds (and looks) fantastic. Nearly dead-quiet in the noise section. Pretty dynamic. Groovy, punchy bass as it should be.

My copy sounds great. Though I think Seu Jorge did not deliver with every song. Still a fun record to have though.

Looks very nice and the packaging is great.

I love the album though.

For everyone in Europe: you can still order this directly from Newbury Comics and save a lot of money, especially now that the exchange rate is weighed in favor of the euro. I got it for 32 euros, including shipping (they had a 20% discount, which will ... See full review

Amazing package, but one disc is slightly warped and produces quite some surface noise.

Same here, especially on side 3 and 4. The first disc is flawless.

Some surface noise, but for a rare find like this there's not much to complain about. Excellent coloring too.

Great release. Mine does come with some audible surface noise though.

Can anyone confirm the color of this version? I'm wondering whether there are regular blacks on sale which I should avoid.
(I'm looking for a good price on the orange and white one).

Thanks!

It sounds really good, although I don't have any reference vinyl of the same album, so I can't be sure.
