ok sure, a lot of them look pretty & feel more durable - Yet sound quality they suck.

"From a man who designs cutting lathes...

Tim de Paravicini- Black is because carbon black as a lubricant to vinyl is added to reduce noise as well as flow in the stampers.
Coloured or clear are slight noisier

Picture discs will always be noisy because the fibres in the thin paper beneath the vinyl surface affects the surface. No ifs or but."

Incidentally I hear the newest pressings by Plastichead which have jumped from "Back on black" BACK to "Let them eat Vinyl" are slightly lighter gauge than 180 gram, or at least some are.
Which seems fine to me, those 180's are a mouthful but i do not know everything and this might be insane.
I have said before that the clear pressings tend to crackle.

I like black because i need to SEE the grooves, not to mention the sound
