It's a 180 gram press. Came out together with 'Protection' and 'Blue Lines' (both 180 gram represses) at 02 Dec 2016. Problem solved but discogs could and should mention 180gram pressings. There are a lot that aren't mentioned..

My copy sadly had a pressing defect on the last minute on B2 - there is like a reticular / "hair" incision for about 5 x 20mm - looks very superficial, but it does affect playback w clicks and disturbances. Tried to clean it but absolutely nothing got better. Sadly I noticed this several months later, as I didn't play it immediately.
I don't get this lousy manufacturing procedures with so many brand new records these days. It never ever was like this in the good old days.
I just feel like throwing the record away.

WOW. Exceptional pressing. Clear, vibrant, silky, completely flat and no surface noise present. Great remixes as well. Recommend!

Like the reissue of "Protection", it's a bit on the quiet side but plays just fine at louder volumes.

Some crazy prices here (upwards of A$100) especially given that the repress is great quality and is available Mint at a fraction of the price - https://www.discogs.com/Massive-Attack-V-Mad-Professor-No-Protection/release/9442827

Sounds awesome!
Remastered or not, the quality of this press is very impressive.
Better than the original. Recommended.

A Rare item. Whole side B from Blue lines is here, including ''Unfinished Sympathy'' & ''Daydreaming''.
What a misprint! Does anybody knows exactly how many vinyls were cut? I got mine for 10 euro at a
local store. What a gem!

Exceedingly rare mispressed vinyl. Combines 2 sides from different classic Massive Attack LPs... Side A = No Protection and Side B = Blue Lines. A little piece of history from a time when this group was shaping the underground music of the decade.
