To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Pressing is pretty subpar. Notable noise on both records, with it being extremely noticeable on any of Martinez's tracks, since they're ambient songs. That's the coin you flip when buying colored vinyl, so I'm not overly upset, it's just unfortunate such a killer album fell prey.
More often than not, colored vinyl releases are problematic. I understand why record labels do this but I cannot tell you how many bad pressings I’ve had to return or get stuck with. This DRIVE soundtrack release by Lakeshore is, unfortunately, one of those releases. Extremely noisy pressing. Every record you own will have little fleeting moments of surface noise but a bad pressing is a whole other story. LOTS of surface noise. On this copy I could actually feel hardened particles that are in the vinyl that give a loud pop or thump as your needle passes over them. Some companies like Mondo will offer a plain, black vinyl in addition to colored variants. I wish Lakeshore had as well. This release was a bust for me. In the past I would have mailed it back for another copy but I have been down that road too. The second and even the third will be bad as well.
