180 gram black vinyl in a plain white poly-lined paper sleeve inside a gatefold jacket.
Includes an 8-page 11" x 11" full color booklet with artwork, lyrics and credits,
an additional printed inner sleeve, and a download code card (digital release).
The gatefold sleeve is printed plain purple on the inner surface.

Some copies have a big sticker with golden letters on the shrink wrap (see picture).
These also have a different barcode sticker attached to the shrink on the back, right under the original barcode on the sleeve.

Track timings were taken from playing the record at constant 33⅓ RPM. They are not listed on the release.
Side A has a locked runout groove, so the duration of A5 could be infinitly.

Tracks are listed sequentially in the booklet.

Produced at Tarbox Road Studios, Cassadega, NY, Winter 2015.
Supplementary tracking done at IQL Studios, Philadelphia, PA.
Mastered at Sterling Sound, New York, NY.

I love Baroness and this is potentially my favorite album of theirs, but this pressing is a massive disappointment. Very muddy. Sounds like a blanket is over everything. I like having the record, as the artwork is beautiful, but I honestly prefer just listening to the MP3 version as for some reason it sounds much better to me.

I'm not saying don't buy, but don't expect a very engaging listening experience here even if you love the album.

Buy it in some form or another though! This is a future classic.

My A-side doesn't have a locked groove. Different pressing maybe?

Why is this listed as UK & US? Isn't this a US pressing, that happens to be on sale throughout the rest of the world as well? What's the UK part in this?
