Music 4**** /Vinyl pressing*,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Shadows [VINYL] (Vinyl)
I'm a huge fan of Teenage Fanclub and this is a solid, though not spactacular, release. Lovely melodies, more hooks than a tackle box, an understated folky vibe--the record easily makes my top 10 for the year. The problem comes from the vinyl pressing that I received. As with far too many modern vinyl editions, there seems to have been little care taken in terms of releasing a quality product. My brand-new copy had numerous flaws--deep scuffs, scratches, voids--which caused several loud pops and constant noise throughout. A real shame and a tremendous letdown for fans.

Thanks for the upfront info. Now that its OOP this vinyl is twice the price it was on release - about £16 as I remember. I had thought of purchasing it regardless, but I have frequently encountered the types of issues you describe with newly released vinyl - and they rarely relate to just the one copy within a pressing run. Is the inner sleeve polylined, paper or card?
