Out of all of Elliott Smiths albums. I always find myself going back to Figure 8. Not only because it is a beautiful album, but I was trying to wrap my head around the theme of it. Figure 8 is Elliott's most mysterious album. You'll have a song with a happy melodic feel to it like "easy way out" but with lyrics like: "You'll take advantage till you feel your being used". It is obvious that Elliott was trying to express his feelings in a different way instead of the usual: Sad melody sad music.

Just want to reiterate that this pressing is ABSOLUTE GARBAGE. Unequivocally the worst-sounding record I've ever had the misfortune of hearing. The sound quality is deplorable; there's a ton of distortion; and what's more, my copy had TWO skips in "L.A." (B2), which apparently is a common problem. Can't even bring myself to listen the whole way through because it's torturously terrible. STAY AWAY!!!
Never really checked my copy since i also have the EU UMG & 2 copies of the CD (which is the format this record has been recorded for and that i have mostly played since 2000). I remember it sounded bad like everyone else described, but now i have a brand new and better cartridge, plus corrected my settings on my turntable, i must admit it sounds better than what i remember... It's far from being from the best record in my collection (but ES records always sounds pretty bad to me). I even compared it to the recent UMG (which has its own issues, on top of being also 'digital sounding') and i don't hear much difference...I have a rather good setup, i can be a really snob when it comes to sound quality so, unless my ears are shit, i wonder if Plain hasn't just changed its QC at some point...
I think the problem everybody is having with vinyl copies of Elliotts stuff is the fact it was mastered in the cd age and not for vinyl which is a different, additional process that maybe has not or been done properly before pressing
listened to this. then cleaned the needle. still sounded very bad. now i found this comments here and know it's the pressing. might sound ok on a cheap stereo but not on better equipment. which pressing is better?
Sounds horrible, really distorted and bad quality. Avoid! Piece of garbage.
I came here looking for this - I can't believe how badly it's recorded. I spent a long time agonizing over proper cartridge orientation above and beyond the usual trying to get this to sound ok, but the last couple of songs on the records are UNBELIEVABLY distorted!

This sounds like garbage!! I returned the first copy I bought thinking it was just a bad record. They played it on a shitty portable record player in the store and it sounded fine. Wtf? After much hesitation they gave me another copy and I'm playing it now and sounds like absolute shit! I thought my speakers were blown out.
Beware this CRAP reissue pressing.Distorted overdriven mastering. Compressed CD even sounds better!So bad. old mine for cheap as quick as I could.Just got a copy of Back To Black reissue from EU which is great.
Boycott Plain Recordings. They press from bad digital sources purely for profit because they have the money to do this. It IS the negative side of this reawakening of vinyl consumerism.Sell of your plain recordings to people who don't have a good stereo or want such and such album on vinyl. When A/B, streaming sources sound just as good. It's junk stuff.
Hmm, this pressing sounds pretty great to me, I don't understand what's with all the bad reviews. Maybe there were some defective copies floating around out there once upon a time.
What are you listening to this on? Also have you listened and compared to a better quality pressing?
It is true, this pressing happens to sound EXTREMELY bad. Sad to hear such an amazing record get this type of mastering for vinyl. Keeping my eye out for a better pressing!
Hey, try the Back to Black reissue. Sounds pretty good to me, i think you will be far happier with this than the Plain Recordings reissue...
Got a pressing of this copy but copyright 2012, it sounds pretty good to me so maybe they fixed it? My records all have the same identifiers on the vinyl as listed above
Mine is copyright 2012 Geffen as well. I'm not seeing this variant. 2013 Europe press is as close as I can see.
Bought a copy at a record store in Austin without reading the reviews first. My copy from Plain Recordings sounds like crap. I contacted Plain Recordings (really City Hall Records) who said they had never heard this complaint and "as a matter of fact, we're listening to it in the office right now and people are impressed with how good it sounds..." Sent them copious amounts of quotes from the internet regarding Plain Recording's pressing of Figure 8 and they responded, "Well, your search is biased because you put 'Elliott Smith Figure 8 DEFECTIVE' in the search engine..." After bickering and recording a sample of Can't Make a Sound to show them how muff-garbled this pressing was, they agreed to send me a replacement copy. Even said they had an employee give it a listen to check for quality... Specifically Can't Make a SoundWell, I don't know which deaf employee they hired, but this thing still sounds like crap! Even Can't Make a Sound! AVOID.
Picked this up today only to come here and read the bad comments. I immediately put it on and listened with worried ears... but it was all for not. I must have gotten lucky because my copy sounds fine. Nice and clear with no pops or hissing and the mix sounds good to me. Update: Upon a closer listen on better speakers, everyone else is right, this sounds like shit.
Upon a closer listen on better speakers, everyone else is right, this sounds like shit.
my copy also sounds like complete garbage, some tracks sounding like they didn't even apply the RIAA curve. shit pressing, extremely frustrating given the wonderful sound this album usually offers.
my copy sounds quite alright. but my 2008 reissue of X/O sounds horrible. the brights are too harsh and the whole mix is thin. like you said "practically unlistenable"!
Got the same problem. Horrible sound all over the vinyls and skipping. Figure 8 is the most hi-fi Elliott Smith recording , didn't deserve that treatment really.
Terrible pressing from Plain Recordings. Skips on Tracks B1 and B2, and every other song has horrible sibilance and hissing on the treble sounds. An amazing album made practically unlistenable thanks to the shoddy physical medium.
