Kardana
I have the Silver version of this album. I always vacuum clean my records prior to playing (even new ones). Surface noise is minimal, and there are no pops. However on some tracks I get a weird distortion usually in the left channel. The distortion was most concerning because its unnatural sounding ... I thought the distortion was because of my turntable setup, but my system is carefully configured (tracking force etc) and I double checked everything to be sure. It happens in the same areas on the record and I have no issues with other records in my collection. Its apparent there were some quality issues. Always go black vinyl if you want quality. Amazing album otherwise though!!
Cordabor
Mine sounds fantastic as well (the center hole was a bit small). Got it at their US tour a year ago.
Xlisiahal
If your copy sounds bad, it may just need a good bath and scrubbing. I washed mine and it sounds perfect. Silence between tracks and during quiet parts.
Zulkigis
I wish this worked on my wife. . . .
Huston
My copy is really nice. No surface noise (except for a little bit at the end of Star Roving), and the mastering is really dynamic
Fenrikasa
Managed to widen the holes enough to fit it on a turntable, and used the VinylFlat to remove the warps, but there is a LOT of surface noise between tracks. :(
Arador
I can't even play my copy; the centre hole is too small for any of my three turntables! It's also visibly warped (I can fix that with my VinylFlat, which usually does a great job reducing warps).
Heri
Just widen the hole with a twist of a kitchen knife, just 1 or 2 always does it for me.
Doriel
Mine is perfect, clean, and louder than the Japanese blue wax. No surface noise even in the quiet passages.
Alianyau
My copy sounds fine. There is some slight surface noise audible at times (for example during the intro of Sugar for the pill), but nothing too bad.
Modifyn
Mine sounds fine unlike a lot of people apparently, great album.
Ffleg
Have both the silver and black pressings of this. The silver is one of the worst pressings in my collection, Falling Ashes is unlistenable, while the black is perfect. Such a shame.
Hulbine
Love this album, but my side B almost unplayable. Significantly off center.
in waiting
Great music, awful press. It's warped. 1st track on both sides is unplayable with my turntable :(
ChallengeMine
There are pops and then a click-skip on track 3 in the same place of both sides on my copy. Sending back to Normon records. How does a pressing plant manage to fuck up so bad? Guess I'll go for the standard black second pressing.
Xisyaco
Getting rid of my silver pressing. centre holes well out!!!
Fast Lovebird
A highlight of the year 2017. a surprise! ... my copy is clean. Plays perfect
Melipra
On my second copy now-- pathetic quality control. Truly bad workmanship. Astonishingly crappy by even today's standards. Pock-marked, warped, water stained, full of handling scuffs, labels torn and bubbled, what dreck art thou? Guess I'll exercise my Amazon Prime account until they send an acceptable copy. This deserved better.
Oveley
tons of surface noise.. what the fuck boo. oh well.
Ndlaitha
Looks like I am one of the lucky ones: my pressing is perfect. Low surface noise, minimal pops and clicks. I was actually very impressed until I read the comments here. Can anyone tell me if the downloads are WAVs/lossless formats or MP3s? Thanks!

noeluk Looks like I am one of the lucky ones: my pressing is perfect. Low surface noise, minimal pops and clicks. I was actually very impressed until I read the comments here. Can anyone tell me if the downloads are WAVs/lossless formats or MP3s? Thanks! I bought mine through Bandcamp, which allows you to download both mp3 and lossless formats (aiffs I downloaded are 96khz files).
wanderpool
Noeluk,The download format is Mp3 /320kbit/s.( Here in europe :)
Erthai
I have a copy of the silver vinyl and no noise issues to report at all. Cleaned it as well and really a terrific pressing.
Llbery
Same. I often wonder what some of the other folks have for turntables, cartridges etc... This us the 4th or 5th thing I've owned were many other buyers are complaining about noisey pressings where my copy plays more than fine... And I can't be THAT lucky all the time, right?
Debeme
Same here... Not warped, not off center, and nothing noisy about my silver copy.
Goldenfang
for some reason the release of this album has felt so triumphant and long-due even though I am fairly young and only was introduced to slowdive a couple years back. i was incredibly stoked to hear of this pressing and almost got the bundle, instead I just tried ordering it online but it was sold out or shipping was steep. they played a show in Toronto on May 5th which also happened to be the release date and did a signing at sonic boom. i was one of the first people in line and one of the first people to actually get their hands on the silver vinyl before it ran out which was pretty remarkable and they were real nice upon meeting them. im very lucky to have a signed copy, just a little sad I couldn't see the show that night because I was underage though I did make some friends who were too and made their way to the guest list!that aside, the album is beautiful. the gatefold is soft and visually pleasing. the silver is a treat. actually getting to spin it, not that great. it was a bit warped and skipped around the end of side b, a lot. Not that bothersome though
Akirg
Really glad to hear all of this! Encouraging to hear about newer fans to pass the torch on!
Brariel
I bought the silver record directly in a store, My copy is hardly bent. I do hear some very tiny surface noise/pops during Go Get It and Falling Ashes, but nothing unusual.
The Rollers of Vildar
Gave this it's first spin yesterday. Sadly I've got a warped and off centre copy too. Quality control seems like is has been non existent with this one. What a shame, it's a great album and up there with Slowdive's best work.
cyrexoff
It's a silver coloured record - of course there's a slight increase in surface noise during the quieter sections. I'm not sure what people were expecting, but at least a cleaner black edition is also available.
Yannara
I have some surface noise on side A but nearly no noise on side B, only little surface noise on the last song. I have the silver vinyl edition. Overall an great album!
Beahelm
I was curious as to why folks kept reporting that there is significant popping noises on "Falling Ashes"... So, first I listened to the vinyl and it was pretty clear and audible. Yes. There are noises, but they are a bit more rhythmic than random. I downloaded my mp3's, loaded them into iTunes and put on my Beyerdynamic DT770's. I know, not the best, but they are pretty damn good. Anyway, there is instrumentation in the background that can easily be mistaken for pops in the vinyl. Check your digital sources. You will hear it there too. It will just come across differently to your ears. You really might have to use headphones. My copy is clean and centered with a slight warp that should mellow out over the years ahead. This is a fantastic album.
Ť.ħ.ê_Ĉ.õ.о.Ł
Both of my sides are off center and its warped. I have some surface noise on side A too. I've had bad luck w Dead Oceans/Jagjaguwar/Secretly Canadian. They distribute together and I've had issues w literally 50% of everything I've bought from those labels. Wherever they press these albums is shitty on the qc. Its a shame because the album is fucking great.
Lli
I agree about the album, might be the best of the year. Spinning it again, it's a bit warped. I want to return this but not interested in repeating this and getting same quality. I'll likely go for it, hope for a quality copy.
AGAD
On my copy the label on Side A is approx .5 inches off center. Anyone else get this? Fairly quiet on Side B however so ok there.
Original
Love the album, not 100% satisfied with the silver vinyl though. While good and clean sounding overall, the last songs on each side turn into a crackle and pop-fest. While it's bearable on the a-side, the last song on side b is totally ruined by it.Is anyone's limited edition free of surface noise and pops? Wondering if it's worth to return it for an exchange copy or just accept it...
Voodoosida
Seems like all the silver pressings are not the best. Mine is the same. Quite disappointing.
IGOT
I agree with everyone. This is an amazing album and, right now, it is my favorite lp of 2017. My silver vinyl has some surface noise, but not enough to warrant a replacement. Get it if you can!
Wrathshaper
Last track of side B, crackles and pops... sad because it is the most quiet song of the album..
Thetath
No pops on mine but side 2 is really whirry! Great for shoegaze but it spoils the last track :(
Uris
Same problem on my copy! What a downer for such an otherwise excellent album...
NI_Rak
The copy I have is also signed ordered from resident records.
Clonanau
This new album is a little bit more pop and easy than their early work, but it makes this a stunning album. Guitar wall is as great as ever when it is let loose! Pressing is good quality except at the last song some cracle and pops in low volume. I can live with that.
Hilarious Kangaroo
I've listened to the first track and I'm overwhelmed with excitement.. waiting for my physical copy!!! Cassette and Silver Vinyl.
Sironynyr
This may well be their best LP. I was initially weary of this release but was presently surprised to find they had created some of the strongest work of their catalogue. If you like Slowdive, you will love this LP>
