Actually, this ain't bad. Yes, you gotta flip your turntable to 33 when you go to the B side, but what a crazy surprise to get one of the best Grant Hart/Husker Du songs of all time on the flip. A weird anomaly, but nothing worth 1 star.

Ah, Metal Circus–one of the Hüsker's finest moments. Bridging the gap between hardcore punk and melodic alternative, Metal Circus is fast, abrasive yet beautiful, and a great EP/mini-album. My favorite record by the harcore pioneers from Minneapolis/St. Paul after Zen Arcade.

As for this 2012 repressing, it's really good. Great, even. Very little surface noise (outside of Bob Mould's shrieking guitars), well-mastered, and for its price, it's an excellent buy. This repressing can be found for very cheap, and if you're a Hüsker Dü fan looking to solidify their collection, or just somebody interested in one of the better punk records of the early 80s, this is a great purchase.

Some early pressings supposedly came with an insert/poster, can anyone confirm or add on this? Mine looks just like the one on the release page but didn't come with a poster.
