This 190g reissue is absolutely excellent. Fine pressing. Excellent sound stage. Vocals nice and central.

Very impressed with the sound on this one, vinyl is completely flat too.
I definitely have the 2013 copy not sure on the 2014

What's the difference between this and the 2014 edition? The matrix runouts looks like I have this one, but the letters on the label are printed with red instead of black like this or the 2014 edition. Any thoughts?

Really enjoyable listening. Much deeper and more spacious sound than the cd edition. Great pressing.

really happy with this. silent and with great dynamics. matrixnumbers as descrbed. seems like there are fake ones without any matrixnumbers at all.

This is a truly great sounding pressing. Great low ends, dead silent vinyl, the soundstage is brilliant.

The vinyl master sounds pretty good but the pressing is bad. Pops and crackles all the way. Another 180 gram-scam. Disappointing...

i see that i'm not the only one that struggle to make the difference between the limited release of nov 2013 and the repress from 2014. i don't owe any of them and i'm looking to get the 2013 release. I see on discogs that the limited release doesn't mention that it's a 180g vinyl, can someone check and tell us if it's or not a 180g vinyl ? in this last case, that would be the difference between the 2.

this pressing might sound good if youve never heard the original or the singles...
but god, scratchy highend. recessed highend. no real dynamic range in comparison.
they were like VINYL IS WARM GUYS and fked it up.

find the Virgin pressed Inertia Creeps single, and compare to this...

What makes this a Lmt Ed.? I see no indication of anything special.
