Good luck. They suck.

I would try contacting the place where you purchased them for a return. I purchase my new LP's from acoustic sounds or music direct and they have been very good about exchanging if I was not satisfied. I also have had similar problems with classic records and no longer purchase from their label for this reason. I have a few early 180gm that are nice however.
Thanks all for your replies. Yesterday I received an email from themusic.com saying they will replace the albums. It only took a month. They said they open and look at replacement albums. Today I received an email saying they opened a couple replacement albums and those had the same marks on them as mine. They were going to search in other batches to find any good copies, hopefully.
I do hope they get their act together as they had a great reputation until recently. I wonder if their just announced Clarity Vinyl series will improve their standing in the vinyl community.
I have purchased several albums from Music Direct and have returned several, no questions asked. They are fantastic.
