Just picked up a copy from HMV in London. Suffers from the sibilance problem on Halftime mentioned previously, which makes it unlistenable. They had the non-XX version (COL 475959 1) in, so planning on swapping for that version. Avoid.

I haven't listened to this version so can't comment on the sound but the cover art is total garbage and prevents me from even picking it up.

First copy I got had a load of distortion/sibilance on the vocals for 'Halftime'. Returned it and it's just the same on this copy. Kind of unlistenable, but the other songs sound very lush.
