As someone noted, the color is spot on to match the color of the "eels" name on the cover. I enjoy colored vinyl and especially like it when it matches the theme and/or original packaging. Dreamworks / Universal Import did a nice job there. The knock on this release is that it is a GZ Media pressing which is notorious for poor pressings. I broke my own rule and purchased it anyway thinking there had to be more to this release than just the blue colored record (spoiler: there isn't). I am still disappointed to pay a premium for a GZ Media pressing however my pressing is actually very quiet. GZ hasn't swayed me but maybe they took quality control to a new level especially considering the cost of this one. Side A for my copy is DEAD quiet. I was actually pretty thrilled until Side B. Side B started the same way but started super faint crackles could be heard during "guest list" if you listen very close. I'm being critical here but I believe that is fair for a $45 record. I expect audiophile quality at that price. That super discrete crackle was also present in the beginning of "mental". It cleared up and the remainder of the record is dead quiet. I hope that helps others considering this release. I haven't heard previous pressings but it sounds like it could be the best of the reissues and on the whole a really nice pressing. However, you can decide if it is worth the selling price.

This pressing sounds great and is very quiet compared to a black version I once owned that was riddled with clicks and pops.

Just pulled my copy out and gave it a spin. I had no skips on any tracks, Novocaine for the Soul sounded smooth. There was a little surface noise in between tracks, but this is a solid pressing to these ears.

The color is definitely an opaque light blue and matches the band's font perfectly.

Can anyone provide more information about this release? Matrix runout? Was this pressed by GZ Media and a Back to Black label like the other pressings? I would appreciate any information before dropping $46 on this. Thanks in advance!

I have never been able to get the US version confirmed. I have bought three different 'US versions' within a couple of years, but they all had the UK matrixes. If nobody can confirm that a pressing with the US matrixes exists the UK and US pressings should be merged, right?

Watch out: the first track of the side A (Novocaine for the soul) is unlistenable, the needle is jumping so many times... Reported malfunctionment on amazon.fr but nothing here...

My sealed version has a horrible amount of loud pops and crackles. Cleaned it thoroughly about 6 times without any change. There are no visible scuffs etc.
Maybe I just got a bad pressing but please be warned.
Such a shame...
