Is there a way to tell the ORIGINAL black and white cover version from the 1993 reissue? They seem identical. Mine came with a yellow Frontier Records catalogue (flyer).

Just a little comment : on this one, the B4 title "Resurrection - Sixth Communion" is written with 3 "r" : "Resurrrection - Sixth Communion"...

I own Frontier Records and if there's a picture disc of OTOP, it's not authorized. If anyone has one, love to see it! Please write me via frontierrecords.com... Thx, Lisa

Absolute crap! This "Version" of Cavity is the same as it appears on Only Theatre of Pain. Lord's Prayer is just Prayer backwards.

Complete waste of money.

You may be hard pressed to tell that this is in fact a remastered release as there's no mention in the liner notes, but Frontier did a good job with this one. Listening to the original CD release compared to this 2011 version there's a big difference in the fullness of sound. One major gripe however is an audio glitch present on track 9 "Resurrection - Sixth Communion." At 2:41 the audio drops out for a half second and sounds like a muted skip. This glitch is not present on the original Frontier CD issue. I've tried several copies of the new remaster and all have had the same problem. Hopefully this was an error in a particular batch of presses, because if it's a mastering issue it may take an act of god to get it fixed. If you're having this same issue as well, please email Frontier records at info at frontierrecords dot com
If enough people let them know that the 2011 reissue has a problem, hopefully we can get it fixed.
A smaller issue, but still somewhat annoying are the track cue points. They've been changed from the original CD issue on this release. The ends of some songs are now clipped and have become the beginning of the next track. Sometimes it's no big deal, sometimes it's a major problem.
Five stars for this classic album, but 3 stars for the 2011 reissue until the audio issues are worked out.

*UPDATE*
Frontier Records was kind enough to get back to me on the 2011 reissue audio glitch.

Here's what the mastering engineer had to say:
> Subject: Re: Fwd: Christian Death Remaster Audio Glitch
> Yeah it's from the master mix and has been there from the beginning,
> first release of the dang thing.
> I can't remember if it was bad edit ... or what but I can't
> afford to go back to the 2" tapes (if they play) to re-mix. Maybe for
> some other anniversary edition of OTOP!

So while it's unfortunate that the 2011 remaster will continue to have this issue, I think it's still well worth picking up. It's a half second of frustration, but the rest of the remaster sounds great. Hopefully they'll fix the issue on a future release.
