It's a great album, but this pressing is not very good. It's nowhere near quiet, with the noise being extremely obvious between tracks. My copy also features a variety of pops present on all sides but worst on A.
From my amateur opinion, it is well mixed though.
The inside out cut is pretty neat as well.
In summary, it's a great album, but I would suggest trying one of the other pressings over this one.

Sumerian delivered an excellent job on this record: great mastering and very quiet LP

So is this the “retail” variant? Like if you buy it from Amazon, it’ll be this one?

Absolutely terrible packaging. The wooden box is so cheap and it got spikes ready to stab you. The red velvet inside the box is so sloppily applied that it's coming off the box already. The sound quality of the headphones is worse than that of a dollor earbuds. The box is too big for what it contains. Simply the worst limited box package in my years of collecting music. The album is amazing nonetheless.

Dark and catchy.

Jonathan Davis started writing for this release back in 2007 when he toured solo with his band "The Simply Fucking Amazings" (SFA). He wrote several demo's in that time. Over the timespan of a decade he wrote the songs and several songs were leaked or released:

- Final Days, Hapiness and Medicate released through Soundcloud in 2011
- Basic Needs and Gender had demo versions surfacing over the internet.

The tracks feature a lot of influence from music from India/East and is way more mellow than Korn. This should not be listed under metal, alternative rock is more like it. Still if you like Korn you'd probably like it.

- It has that same tormented feeling Jonathan puts in his voice and lyrics.
- The music also has multiple layers.
- Ray Luzier is present, so it is made by 40% of Korn ;-)

Too bad a couple of really good cover tracks are missing, they would have made excellent bonus tracks:
- Love On The Rocks by Neil Diamond (Wonderland soundtrack)
- Got Money by Lil Wayne (released as promo single only)
- Blue Monday by New Order and The Chauffeur by Duran Duran (Alone I Play special edition)

All and all a great album and a must-have for every Korn-fan or other tormented soul.
