Damn, I must have got a dud. This right here is one of the worst records I own. Crackling throughout both discs, a lot of popping, clicking, and many tracks sounding quite distorted.

I can't believe that this edition, a commemorative one let's remember, can be this bad. Probably my copy, so I'll try to get a replacement.

The packaging and bonus (specially for me, it's the first edition I got), though, top notch!

Good remastering! Music is amazing and has become a deservedly praised classic which I love to spin. The BOX is great with lyrics and photos + additional stories on the recording and band members. However the second record is warped!!!! When the f*** will pressing plant understand that we want flat silent records and that defects are not tolerable (specially for these pricey premium Box editions). Really disapointed by the lack of QC.

The runout is the same as this one but I have just the 2 lp version. Jut got it today from rough trade. Not sure which one I should say I have on Discogs
