    I just got my Feist replacement in and it is damn near flawless. One slight pop at the beginning of “Lonely, Lonely” but that may disappear with a spin clean.

    They are out there folks!
    Don’t give up!

    Is side 1 particularly long? As I got a replacement copy and, again, the noise was on those last two tracks as it gets nearer the run out. A shame as this is a lovely package and I wasn’t super excited in the run up to it. In fact it may be the most played record i’ve got from VMP this year.

    I had the same issue with noise on the last two tracks of side one but my replacement copy is much better. You might just want to try again with another replacement.

    I’d like to echo this response. My first copy was pretty bad, but my replacement copy has little to no noise on the entire thing. And “Lonley, Lonely” needs that silence.

    Opened mine finally and yup crackles at the end of Side 1. I wondered if it was part of the recording, but I guess not.

    Nah, ask for a replacement. My second copy came in flawlessly.

    I guess I'm one of the few that didn't require a replacement. My copy was flawless. :)

    "One of the few" is funny. Usually in a defect situation it's more that a small percentage have issues, but those users tend to speak the loudest and most often. This was an excellent pressing, but unfortunately some defects did happen.

    Okay, so I would like to revise my original take of this being a ‘mediocre’ indie album. I’ve gone back to this one more than any of the other AOTM I’ve got in my collection. It’s such a beautiful and sultry album.

    This was the release that cemented my belief VMP will always have better curation skills than me. Pretty much #teamnoswap at this point. Well done on this one VMP.
