Did an A/B comparison a few seconds at a time and heard like 3 or 4 re-recorded vocal samples, but I would never have noticed otherwise. They did a super good job matching the timbres of the voices.

Honestly, if you noticed a difference, you are a huge nerd. Sorry if this offends

...and YES, the original sounds totally different.

If you've been listening to one version of the album for years it's pretty noticeable when it's the other one :/

^^^ This

 

But yeah the "That boy needs therapy, psycho-semantics" Is a completely different voice it's jarring if you know the other version.

My copy arrived today and I was very disappointed with it. I wasn't expecting a 180g press but I was expecting a bit more than this. It's probably the thinest record I own. I'm not sure if it's because of this or some other reason to do with the pressing but the surface noise on it is very noticeable and nearly unbearable.

I kinda wish I never bought it and waited out for a better repress as this seems very hastily thrown together.

Someone on Reddit said this. What are everyone else's experiences? I haven't gotten one yet.

Similar. Thin, pretty damn noisey, and arrived from Germany with perhaps the worst ringwear I've ever seen on a new record. They sealed that thing on the "Botox" setting.

You guys are breaking my heart.  I was going to dismiss DOMAN's quote with classic "lol Rebbit" logic, but hearing a VC regular confirm it as well is really disheartening.

I was hoping so too :/ I'll probably wait until enough people complain about it and they fix it, if that happens. If not, idk if it's worth owning.

I just picked up my copy today from my local in Australia and playing through it now. There are definitely points with some fairly minimal noise, but otherwise it's a pretty sound pressing in my view. I wouldn't let bad reviews like that put you off buying it!

 

EDIT: Just now noticing that all of the noise seems to be during the track transitions. Even during the more quiet sections (such as 'Tonight May Have to Last Me') background noise is entirely absent on my copy. There is a substantial amount during some of the transitions however :(

Like when the tracks themselves play into the next?  That's really weird.  I don't know too much about how records are mastered and pressed, but having noise limited to transitions, exclusively, seems like it could be a mixing / mastering error.  Part of me doubts they used new plates for this press, though, so I really don't know what to think.

 

Noisy transitions aside, how are the samples?  Are they vastly different from the standard copy most folks have?

I can confirm. I just picked this up at Reckless in Chicago and although the well known samples are back in it (i.e. Frontier Psychiatrist), the transitions between tracks are a bit static-y. I cleaned the record and double checked my stylus to make sure. Solid pressing otherwise.
