Apparently, the gold one is not. I mean, the pressing could have been good as it sounded ok initially, but just after a few listens my gold copy started crackling all over (cleaning doesn't help). My guess is that the (uncarbonized) PVC is very weak.

I wonder if it is the quality of the golden vinyl used for this pressing, but my copy started crackling heavily all the way through after just a few spins, and no repeated attempts to clean it with proffesional-grade ultrasonic washing machine could ... See full review

Can anyone comment on the quality of pressing? My copy has a few distortions on the loudest moments of Side A, and sibilants in general sound pretty lousy.

Just received a replacement from HHV - absolutely identical crackles on the same track 2, now even more pronounced. Anyone else having the same issues?

Hmm, weird, my copy seems dead quiet overall... except for three small blemishes/crackles on track 2, some neglgiible, others more obvious. Not sure it's eligible for a replacement, though still too bad you pay 20 quid for a fresh copy which is not ideal.

Just okay or good? Some commentators here still complain on warps or scuffs.

Indeed! I'd love to buy it, be it vinyl or CD.

OMG how good is this. Both the concept and the execution. I don't have the book, only the LP - but loving it to the max. Quality pressing, excellent mastering, out of this world music - can't ask for more anyway.

Seems like a (bad) trend. Also got crappy bitrates, like 192, coming recently with some vinyl. Utterly ridiculous. Is this to make us reminisce about 1996 or what?

How is the quality of the press? MPO seems to be awful, see my comment above.

MPO press seems to be terrible quality. I'm returning the second copy already. Both had similar artifacts: continuous rustle in the right channel on a few first tracks on Side A, especially obvious throughout Ascension. Plus excentricity.

The album itself is incredible - composition, production, mastering, sound and everything. Totally agree that it's one of the very best of 2015. I just want to add some comments regarding the 2016 Pluto repress. I bought it from HHV and had to return it ... See full review

Totally agree, with the sole excepton for Dinosaur Act which I love unconditionally - just like every other track on the record :)

Good question. Same for me - brand new from HHV.de, etching present, terrible pressing quality. So I wonder, is it one of the represses or the original run? No idea.
