Do I interpret the data correctly, there is no insert in this edition right?

Hi, i own this gold edition and the original uk cd, and the double disc with the remixes, the surface noise is in my mind very mild it does exist but the sound throughout is pristine, the other guy is right this isn't the same mix as any version i own, i bought this version as i cannot afford an original press, but this one stands up well, i mean i cannot imagine getting a better sound out of this album anywhere else, the surface noise is almost there to just remind you its on vinyl, i have 0 complaints about it, the balance is amazing as well, full, rich and at a fraction of the cost of an original, although with the prices fluctuating so much between outlets the limited to 2000 seems a bit wonky, But i hold this as the definitive version i own, it;'d been nice to get an ep as well containing all the remixes from the album, the lack of an insert sheet with the artworks and credits sucks but didn't impede my enjoyment, but to the other 1999 people with me in ownership, its fucking beautiful isn't it,.

The original vinyl edition was very good if slightly too hot resulting in some bleeding when things get too frisky. This is mastered slightly lower and does not suffer in the same way. Surface noise is very noticeable at the start of each track and in quiet parts. You tend to filter it out with time and given the original vinyl's relative cost it's not a massive issue. This edition seems to offer more detail than the original version. Samples in Collision for instance are far more clear whilst the track loses none of its punch. Bass weight and treble balance are all top notch too. Whilst I've not listened to this thoroughly, it's already apparent that this might be from a different source to the CD and original vinyl. At the very least Mouth To Mouth's intro is more detailed and has a different ending before the track starts properly. it's not the same mix. I compared it to the original LP pressed by MPO, the original US CD, original UK CD, original Japanese CD and also with the Japanese and the UK recent reissues on Warner - this is a unique version so there's this little issue too.

Whilst I don't want to gloss over the surface noise issue, it's a noisy record so for the most part you won't notice it. I will give this a more thorough listen shortly, but for now I'm very pleased with this pressing.

Edit: on the issue of noise, it's a sad fact that a better turntable/cartridge which picks up more detail, will invariably transmit more noise too. This review was in response to Deadpoultry;s concerns about MOV and their issues with surface noise.

I'm also interested in how this album sounds. Particularly in regards to surface noise.

Can anyone, please, comment on this release? How does it sound? If someone was lucky to listen to the original press, what is the difference between the two versions? Which is better? Thanks!
