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

Is anyone's really noisy?, all throughout Pinion, Help me I'm in Hell and the quieter parts of the other tracks, it's persistent through the whole side, I'm really bummed, and to add insult to injury the sleeve was unguled

Love this re-issue, but like everyone else, my sleeve came unglued right out of the packaging.. It's the little things and this is pretty disappointing.

Sounds great! A bit quieter than the original but also more balanced in terms of volume. Some of the background effects sound a bit richer as well and background vocals are much clearer. My sleeve is coming a bit unglued (should NOT be happening to begin with) but if I'm careful it should last. The essay is a nice read as well, helps provide some context for the reasons behind the album.

Anyone else missing the 7 inch? I just received an empty sleeve, and like others sleeve came unglued immediately.


August 26, 2017

It could have just fit on a 12". What's the point of a one sided 12" with a 7"? More stupid choices by labels.

Trent may have spared no expense on the pressing and remastering, but he completely dropped the ball with the crappy packaging of the artwork and sleeve. ALL the new reissues suffer from this carelessness, meaning that the original pressings are *still* the definitive versions when it comes to the overall experience. Trent tried to call his shot with these, but whiffed big time on the packaging. He basically went against his own vinyl creed, which is rather embarrassing.
