Sounds great! The edge of my vinyl has a section about 1” that looks like it wasn’t trimmed after pressing. Sharp and wavy, but doesn’t effect playback. The sleeve is unglued and the 7” doesn’t fit into the provided sleeve.

Amazing sound. Dead quiet, dead centered, perfect. I was lucky enough not to get a poorly glued sleeve on either this or the Fragile. To whomever took the pictures of the inner sleeves, I really like your countertops.

Bought this at my local record store and much like everyone else has mentioned, my packaging sleeve was slightly unglued. I was able to use some scotch tape to keep it together and it isn't that noticeable really. A little unfortunate ... but oh well. Vinyl itself sounds fantastic.

To all of you complaining about format: it was originally like that, whole Broken on one side, side two blank, bonus cover tracks on separate seven inch. Artistic vision.

My 7" won't fit inside the jacket provided as the sleeve and record are too large for it. Why didn't they just put the bonus tracks along with some others on the other side of the record? Bought from Amazon in November.

Very happy with my copy, picked up at a local record shop, no issue with glue. Sounds incredible

I have had absolutely no problems with this reissue. Sounds fantastic. My sleeve never came undone as soon as I took it out!
