Una estafa!!!! El disco tiene un gran sonido y es una joya del grupo. Sin embargo, compre la versión que supuestamente trae el disco de 12" y el de 7". Pero el de 7" no viene. Que mal distribuidor. Ojala pudiese responda, pero es poco probable.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't only the original CD version have the 3" mini CD? I see two listings here for 99 track versions that include the 3", with Physical and Suck on both the CD and the 3". That doesn't make any sense to me. There's also a listing with the 6 track CD and no 3". I have a feeling all of these do not belong on Discogs because they are not real releases. Unless someone has actually come across these sealed and found or not found the 3" inside, these should probably be removed.

Eh. Didn't enjoy this nearly as much as PHM or TDS. I will have to give it a few more listens, sometimes things will grow on me

Edit: enjoyed it more the second time. Don't really enjoy "Gave Up" or "Physical" at all. I will up the rating to 3 stars

Third listen edit: first five tracks get five stars, but didn't really enjoy the rest. Barely makes it to 4 stars overall

Sixth listen edit: Ok, gave it a few more listens and I'm going to have to bump this up to five stars for sure. This is some great work here; even the packaging is amazing. NIN always amaze me with records that initially sound like utter garbage but then, after your head processes it throughout a few listens, you realize how absurdly well put together they are. Go buy this! Make sure it's the version with the two bonus tracks on a separate disk; that's how it was intended to be played. This will be my final edit; thanks for reading.
