I have a copy of this one, can't remember where I got it, but the audio is awful. CD was brand new when I ordered it, put it on my stereo and and the entire album had a sound of sandpaper in the background. Tried a few different players, same result, so I'm not sure what the issue is but I'm on the look out for a better copy. I'll keep this as a document of the album and try to find a replacement. I just wonder if anyone else noticed the audio was poor too.

The sleeve print on my copy is way too dark. Not with the nice lighting as seen on the image posted here. A shame because it's a beautiful cover art
Edit: I went to the store and took a look at another one of these and it's sleeve print was wrong too. The coloring of the background was way uneven and ugly.
Edit 2. I went to the local record collector shop and finally found myself a copy of this CAT that was fine. I would recommend buyers to ask sellers for info on the print sleeve before buying
