Just picked up a copy of this at my local record store. In bright light, the wax is like a black on black marble. Anybody else have a pressing like this?

What's there to be said? One of the best releases of the 70s. Dark, mechanical, and totally desolate, this record hits the listener like a hot iron and plunges them into a vision of the future of rock and roll. This album was way ahead of it's time.
