Amazing reissue, packaging, sound, dynamics, been waiting for this a long time. Initial track "Pray for rain" sounds the band is playing in your living room, grab this while you can.

Paradise circus back ground is very distorted . As with other tracks .. Had to recheck my stylus as I thought it was fluff causing this .... bad pressing.

Got my copy from Canada but looks like my cart was jumping on every first track on each side like crazy, skipping etc... So, I got a replacement and this happened again :) Third item is on the way. I can't just stay without this album on wax so I'm trying to find a good copy for my collection. Also, my cart is Benz LP on VPI Scout and setup fine. Table is leveled. Has anyone noticed the same issue? Hope it's not a bad batch that amazon.ca got.

The mastering on this LP is amazing, the artwork is to die for. A quiet, extremely dynamic pressing. I would kiss the mastering engineer right now.

This has been one of the most elusive re-issues for which I am now a proud owner. after years of toying with the idea of buying an original, the wait is finally over. The cover and inner sleeves are high quality, the outer is oversized in width so it wont fit any snug protective covers, you'll have to stick the record in sideways. The inner artwork is your typical Massive attack imagery not much text to speak of. the inner art booklet is a nice touch. The real gem here are the record pressings themselves. Superbly pressed finished well clean and sounded magnificent on of my planer3. For the price $35 Canadian its a quality package

think this is a pretty, if a little lazy, reissue. Same outer sleeve as for the 3 disc original, just applied glue on one panel to suit the 2 disc rather than reduce the size, so...don't expect to hang this on the wall as the tri-fold makes it too wide, and wider than any normal LP packaging. Worth paying £28 for but no more.
