I can't see anything to distinguish this from my copy - which I bought in 2000 - except the labels are flat.

Watch out for all the amateurs selling reissues under this listing, they have no idea about what the 1st press should look like: matrix, matte cover, circular indentations on labels, Biem rights society...

This was a really good album. The follow up is good too, and then it was all downhill.

This press sounds pretty fantastic, damn quiet. Chris’ vocals sound great, and the piano on Trouble is front and center

I spoke to ken nelson (producer) about the initial 2000 release; so you purists know, tracks: A1 to B2, B4 to B6 on the 2000 release were direct-from-tape transfers, not transferred digitally, not messed with, not remastered, not subject to awfull digital filters or pre ringing. A1 to B2, B4 to B6 on the 2000 release are the best possible window to the studio recordings that are available (unless one owns the master tape). A characteristic that is especially rare for a millennium release.

This is probably one of the best albums they made with A Rush of Blood to the Head, they did knock it out the park not a bad track a really solid album and the sound quality on this press is very impressive!

The 180g reissue has the same -1-1/-1-1 matrix, so it's pretty hard to tell a 1st press from a reissue without weighing it. If you found it in-store sealed, then it's probably a reissue. I'm going to make a wild guess that if it says it was printed in the EU, then it's a reissue.

It's both a blessing and a curse that some Parlophone reissues are like this. The same problem exists for Radiohead's OK Computer (Parlophone pressings). It's extremely hard to tell an original 1st press from a reissue because the matrix runouts are the same, but at the same time, it's sort of a good thing because it diminishes your need to hunt for a 1st press (if it was pressed using the same stampers, then it should sound the same if not better given it's on heavier vinyl and in new condition).

Is this UK first press? How come the price goes from less than 20 to almost 100 € for a copy in similar conditions? Some seller present this as a year 2000 repress and some other for an original 1st press. I think there is need for some clarification. Can any owner please add some info? Thanks
