Pressing is very off centre. Some sides unlistenable because of loud pops that cannot be cleaned away

Just bought this tonight, listening and halfway through I had to come here to post how amazing/quiet it is, only to see your comment. Either I got lucky or you got unlucky, or both. Maybe write Kranky and see if they'll send a replacement? My copy is stunningly quiet. I almost never hear 'ambient' records this flawless.
Xangeo
To all of you people with this in their wantlist, there is a thing called google. PLEASE don't support people who overcharge.$20 including shipping.http://www.kranky.net/
MisterQweene
The label seems to inflate their shipping. Especially in the US. And their return declaration is not the best invitation to mail ordering from them. The label owner appears to dislike the production of the format.
SiIеnt
Yes, it can be about twice that price worldwide, once the exchange rate is factored in, but thanks for the timely reminder to support a great label/distributor.
Arlelond
It's 30$ including worldwide shipping though. We're not all from the US.
Beabandis
Thanks for the heads-up. Just ordered a copy for 20 bucks including shipping!
