Probably their best LP... But, CD gives this extra Cybercity Radio, little shot with this little something special.
Looping this beat gives you a monster party killer.

My CD had a picture cut out from an old porn mag and placed under the tray, I am curious if any other copies are like this.

The CD version adds many tracks from other EPs to the vinyl album and sounds crisper and cleaner, but the vinyls had more presence and pressure. "Black Planet" here lacks the strange female vocal snippet of the original, which makes it a bit more serious but also more dull. Finally, with several B-side tracks omitted, this CD can not replace a collection of all those vinyls in any way.
