Mi copia es ruidosa, sugeriría evitar este disco, es lamentable que siendo un disco fundamental en la obra de Stevens, suena horrible y con una calidad inferior. Evítalo.

Very happy with my copy AKR099-P12.
Sound is very clear and didn't encountered all the previous problems I read here or there.

The music is great (I mean why would I be here otherwise), but at least the recording I have is... not good. It's not like, abysmal, but it suffers pretty bad distortion at loud passages, which is unfortunate. Fortunately there's not too many of those, but it is very noticeable. Surface noise is there, but it's not much worse than any other pressing with some surface noise. I would love if Sufjan would repress his albums like, competently.

I just got my copy direct from AKR. It is VERY heavy; based off feel alone it feels like the heaviest record I own. My scale came out to 194 grams when I weighed it. I don't know how accurate my scale is but I wasn't expecting this to be 180+ grams. It's not mentioned on any of the release pages.

I bought this in early 2021, runout has RE 2 added to it (AKR099A RE 2). Some occasional faint static mostly noticeably only in the quietest parts, doesn’t take away from the experience. No non-fill. If you have an old pressing that sounds unlistenable, definitely pick up a repress for a much better listening experience.

His most personal project yet, Sufjan Stevens' oneiric melodies and guided dive through past events from his life invite you for self-reflection and, who knows, perhaps taking a look on your own path.

I don't have the postcard in my package. Does anyone have the same situation?


July 8, 2021

Fortunately my copy doesn't suffer from the same issues with surface noise it seems many others have. There's an occasional crackle, nothing that doesn't fit with the vibe of the album.

Does anyone know where I'd be able to find one of the 2020 copies in the UK? I have an original 2015 version and the sound is pretty bad - very crackly even after cleaning - would love a good sounding copy - any advice appreciated [:

I bought the original 2015 pressing which is beyond horrible. I recently spotted it again in Barnes & Nobles, and decided to roll the dice, and hopefully get lucky. I was overjoyed to finally hear this record in all it's pristine beauty. The pressing is visually stunning as well as perfectly quiet. I don't see them listed here in Discogs, but there must be subsequent pressings of this record after 2015, as there should be, since it's quite an acclaimed and popular record. The Barcode sticker on my record reads AKR099LP-P01. Also the vinyl came in a poly-lined sleeve.
