Flat record with a load of mold release. There is a "footsteps" surface noise hard to describe but the pressing is highly dynamic. I hear sibilance mostly on side B but I'm not sure if I damaged my copy by listening to it 13 years ago on a turntable not properly aligned or with a bad stylus. Maybe the issue comes from my Rega carbon conical stylus? My matrix numbers are SP-625-1 A and SP-625-1 B only. First pressing maybe? Recommended awesome pressing.

Incredible record. Every song is a masterpiece and a classic. Pressing sounds great.

So true! I could not say more. The first three albums of The Shins are indie-pop classics.

Does anyone else's pressing sound way too fast? I thought I had it set to 45 rpm or something but no, on 33 it still sounds too fast.

No, sounds fine.

Gatefold cover. Pressed on either black vinyl, white vinyl or red vinyl. Some came with a large 4-C poster, printed on newsprint.
