The back cover on this CD is so great. The photo of course is from the original release. But there is something just spooky as hell about those track titles over the dark background with the ghostly pink image of the band.

The mastering sounds excellent and alive, but my copy is not the quietest record I've ever heard, especially for the price. There is some occasional noise, mainly ticks and pops, that did not go away after a run thru the spin clean. The noise is most prominent on the intro to Vein Melter.

This really is it, my numero uno. The wonder just grows and grows. Still gives me shivers, still blows my mind. The groove, the breaks, changes, shifting funky jazz.

Nice sounding reissue. I don't hear any inner groove distortion.

The 2-disc 45 RPM pressing from 2017 blows this away.

Nearly 16 min at 45 RPM might be pushing it, but I'm sure it still sounds better than any 33 1/3 RPM pressings made of this LP.

Another fantastic-sounding MOV release. Yeah yeah, they're all pressed from digital files but honestly, I can't name any other label that churns out this level of consistency in terms of clean, well-pressed records.

Every disc page has a relative album to this disc. I know this one is a god like album.
And I just get a 180gram RE for this. So cheap. What a gift for Lucky fast speed hands.
