Aaaaaugh, I really need to save all my money for a new apartment, but I've wanted a vinyl copy of this album for so long.
Responsibility is killing me.

My Greatest Generation sounds downright awful. Does anyone have the first press and is it good?
My first press of Suburbia sounds great.

Alright. My Greatest is really low in volume and has no noticeable difference in quality. Thanks!

My copy of TGG is also pretty bad. There's A LOT of surface noise in addition to generally low volume and poor sound quality. Someone fucked that up.

I have a second press of the Upsides that sounds pretty good though, so I'm optimistic.

still crazy to me that people don't have copies of this. took, like, a year and a half to sell the first 4,000 copies.

TGG is really the only TWY press that sounds bad. the mp3s are also relatively quiet so i'm not overly optimistic of a better second press. i think the production may have been fucked up all the way through.

I can complete the trilogy! I'm still holding out for the two Fireworks LPs to get re-pressed.

Not super related but:
Hopeless fucked up the pressing of The Greatest Generation big time. The album is too long (50+ min) for a single disc (usually max is 45 min), so the drop in quality comes in it being way lower volume and if you have the blue pressing, a ton of surface noise, which sounds even lower because of the lowered volume.

I have the red and can testify to an abundance of surface noise as well.

Mine is a clear orange. The volume is the lowest volume output of any vinyl I have. It's about 50% lower. When I turn my stuff up it cracks and pops a ton more than other records. Glad to see that this is just mine though. (not sarcasm, generally happy this isn't widespread.)

Same exact as me! Shitty pressing twins!
