sound is identical to the German Pressing, Not enough Bass
so far I would have to say the Spanish pressing is best

Beautiful Pressing!
combines the clarity of the German issue with the bass of the UK version

without doubt my favourite issue of my favourite album

all 4 of my copies of V2183 have a pressing problem that causes a jump in "Chant" after the words "pointing fingers" my Venezuelan & German pressings don't have this issue.
(oved 50 is no better as everyone I've seen is just a rebadged V2183)
so whats the best pressing to get? the German one plays through but has an annoying eq job, the Venezuelan version has too much surface noise.

the Master for the German version had a heavy EQ job that completely neutered Wobbles Bass, I hate this version

Under rated LP which rarely gets a mention nowadays. The tracks from Metal Box are superb versions and in my opinion 'Poptones', 'Bad Baby' and 'Chant' are better than the studio versions. Sadly the tracks from 'First Issue' aren't as good, for some reason the guitar sounds really phased rather than sharp and spikey. This is strange as all bootlegs I've heard from this era the guitar sounds really good. Maybe someone mucked about with the mix in a studio?
