The pressing & the packaging is of high quality. Some Shop Radio Cast items have pixelated covers (dumb and dumber to name just one i have) but this is all around worth the cost. Buy happily and enjoy!

As today, september 13th 2015, someone is selling this reissue at the absurd price of 87,50€.
Don't let you fool, and don't feed speculation: srcvinyl webstore marks it as still available (at a much lower price even with S+H)!

So this basically has little more than sentimental value for me. When myself (playing bass) and a friend (playing guitar) started a two-man-band in early 2001 we did not much more than covering three songs: System Of A Downs "Spiders" and two songs from this record: "Freak" and "No Association". We were 15, we had not just a rehearsing room, more a rehearsing HOUSE (an abandoned office building which years later housed more than 28 bands) but had no drummer, no car (we were 15 by that time) to drive our gear around but we had those songs and I thought they sounded really good when we played them. Later we got an amazing drummer who was light years ahead of us technically and covered the whole first System of a Down record. But this is where we started. Years later, another friend who then joined the band and me were playing together occasionally and every time one of us was trying to be funny, he goes "Wait, until you hear that song I wrote last night" and played the old Freak-riff. Nerds? Yes!

So about the record. I still think "No Association" is a nice loud-quiet-loud rocker. "The Door" mixes likeable 60s Pop into the whole Teenage Angst cocktail the whole record is obviously made of. The way the melodies build on one another in "Abuse Me" still makes me shake a leg. And "Cemetery" is, well, the ballad of the record. The rest of the songs on Freak Show are the generic, angsty Nirvana-loving stuff you'd expect from Silverchair. On the other hand, weren't they just 15 when they started the band? 17/18 when this album was released? And considering the Zeitgeist, who could hold it against them? This is basically music from teens for teens. It hasn't aged well but it is what it is. And for that, it's good. I wouldn't nescessarily recommend it...I still enjoy playing that "No Association" bassline, though!

Nice version, seems to be quite rare. Picked it up for 15 euro's at a record fair, that guy was clearly not aware about the value. Maybe I will sell it one day, as I am not even a big Silverchair fan.
