I was extremely surprised at how much I liked the vinyl over the cd. It is rare for my aged ears to hear a strong difference between formats, but this is one of the few were I felt it was a different record altogether. I owned the CD since it came out, but was disappointed at the monotonous chugging along sound that plodded through the whole piece. I found the LP at a used shop that didn't normally have vinyl and bought it to resell. After listening to it for grading purposes, I started noticing the unique aspects of each of the songs. It appears that they had an engineer who knew how to mix for vinyl. I have completely changed my thoughts on a disappointing album and would highly recommend a replay on a good LP setup.

There are two versions right? Standard and 180 gram preorder? Is this listing supposed to be the non-preorder one?

It's so awesome that side 3 has runout grooves that play music! Is this the first of it's kind or are there others like this? I'd be interested to know.
