I appreciate that a gatefold is esthetically pleasing, I really do. However, I've come to prefer a unipak. Simply because in a gatefold the vinyl is a lot more likely to warp. The platters can easily get 'pinched in' along the edge where the gatefold folds over. I'm grateful to the owner of my local community record store for showing me this. When you put away your beautiful gatefolds folks, it's well worth it to make sure the platters are not getting pinched on the folding edge - or better yet, don't slot the wax in, just keep it all in an outside record sleeve. Oh, and remember that they may actually be doing you a favour when they reissue a record in a unipak ;-)

Named 1993 AOTR by Spin Magazine ahead of The Chronic, In Utero, Rid Of Me, and Siamese Dream among many others, Exile In Guyville holds up as a classic 25 years later. Liz's singing improved on later albums, but her perfectly unpolished croon is still quite endearing here, and it can be heard with crystal clarity on this excellent remaster, which blows away the remastered CD/MP3 release from 2008. If you don't want to shell out $100+ for the original issue, you could do worse than grabbing a copy of this. The vinyl itself is literally the quietest I've ever heard-- if not for a bit of crackling during "Gunshy]", you'll forget you're not listening to a CD.

The 1st press is better sound wise. It’s also collectible. Just look at all of the chumps trying to pawn this repress off at bargain basement prices. Lmao. Stop buying the repress and getting stuck with garbage that has NO (0) value. None. Nada. Nil zilch.

Cheap single cover, mp3 download included, sounds beautiful. Still, a gatefold with some pics of Liz, would have been nice.

Um yeah, the key thing is the pressing, colored vinyl and gatefolds and all the rest of the goodies (hype stickers, DL cards, booklets, yadda) are entirely secondary to a great, quiet pressing. Which is sadly hard to achieve on a lot of new, capitalize on the vinyl craze reissues. I'm looking at you Anti and Tom Waits. A gatefold is nice, but the key is did they spend the money and time to get this pressed at a place that is decent and is the mastering adequate. Stoked to have this, hoping for the best, will update once I've given it a proper chance.

Fantastic sounding pressing. They did this amazing album justice with this remaster and pressing.

This non-gatefold for 2xLP albums nonsense needs to stop. It's 2018, get it together!

Wish it was a gatefold but my copy sounds fantastic and I'm really happy to finally listen to this on an LP :)
