Not very happy with this one from the tireless NOTVD crew. How they managed to screw this up (or perhaps, in this case, they deliberately decided to screw it up) is a mystery.
They can mention the album's length to cover their asses, but I don't buy that. 70 minutes of music, scattered on 4 sides of a double 12" set should be more than manageable. Hell, Island Records made all 64 minutes of Anthrax' "Persistence Of Time" fit on a single LP! And it still sounds more than decent (at least the US pressing, which is the one I own).

So, what's with the Italian vinyl addicts this time around? What prompted them to do what seems to be such a terrible rush job on such an important release, from a seminal band, which hundreds of fans worldwide were waiting for? Why did they have to butcher the pace of the album by mixing up the track-list? And why did they leave out "Freedom", which is one of the most awesome songs of the album? I understand that they wanted to add the Japanese bonus track "Black Sunday", which is also great, but that is absolutely NO REASON to leave out "Freedom"! Damn... Sometimes, I swear, people can get on my nerves.
It looks to me like they either don't care at all about the music that they handle, or that they feel beyond reproach and can get away with anything, no matter how bad the end result is.
If I was the band, I'd be very pissed off at the result of this repress. I'd rather have waited another 10 years, and did it right.
Also the artwork looks like it's been done on a very cheap printer. Heavily pixeled and out of focus. Poor font choice too, when it comes to the lettering, which, by the way, wouldn't even have been necessary had they used a good scanner and left the track-list alone.
So, I got this record, I'm a vinyl lover, and I was really excited about it, until the day I received it in the mail. Then the world crumbled down on me, and I just shelved it. Now I'm left listening to the CD version, as I've been doing since the album came out in '98. That's really, really sad, when you think about it...
