Did anyone else have noisy copies of The Soft Bulletin? I know I'm a few months late to the party, but both discs of mine were noisy. Really getting tired of doing the whole replacement game.
Yup. I'm on copy 3 and side 3 is noisy on all of them. Mainly second and third song. Most recent one only has a few pops on them so I'll probably just deal with it because I'm tired of assuming for replacements. But yes, it was definitely a problematic pressing, like everything that comes out of GZ.

Mine was alright! Did you clean yours? I've had a habit of cleaning new records lately because so many of them arrive dirty...

Argh. I've had such good luck with the Aretha one that I didn't even bother doing the research. My side 2 and 3 are both noisy, especially 3 on the side you refer to (audible non-fill BS for me). At least they do replacements easily, but still a headache.

Yeah I'd imagine they have a lot of copies of this one so just keep going till you get a good one. I might still get another, my most recent replacement is the best of the bunch so far... but still not really acceptable.

Wow, I actually got a good one of those right off the bat. I think. Now I'm scared. I went thru 7 TVOTR and never got a totally clean one however...
Guess it's all luck then! My TVOTR had just a trace of noise, only by the most anal standards for a few seconds so I never bothered seeking a new one out. My final OutKast was a frankenstein between three copies for cover and LPs, if they did a return and replace model I still would be without a good copy....

Man, just got another copy of Lord Willin’ in today (gifted my last coy to a member here, forgot who), and damn, I forgot how great this pressing sounded and how excellent the album is. Pleased to have it in my collection again.
I just wish they would have done Hell Hath No Fury as well as I avoid Get on Down releases!

Why? A decent pressing already exists.. why not an album that hasn't been pressed yet?
Because I want VMP to make it special! VMP made N*E*R*D’s Fly or Die 45RPM and it sounds amazing apparently! I’m sure they would make Clipse’s Hell Hath No Fury sound much better than the Get On Down/current pressing!

Hell Hath No Fury is definitely an album I would love to see get the VMP treatment!!!
