Just ordered mine in 2020. The jacket has that weird xerox powder ink that smudges at the touch. Pretty cool.
I've seen some complaints that theirs doesn't smudge. I ordered my direct from nin.com, not sure if that makes a difference.

disregarded this release when it came out because well, it was an ep and i wasn't big on where NIN have gone since with teeth. I own the twin peaks double lp with she's gone away so didn't feel the need to every think about this. then i stumbled upon a review of this and saw what side B was. I had no idea those tracks were on here, and in reverse. i then listened to the full tracks of side a and enjoyed it thoroughly. picked this up. outstanding pressing. love it. and side b, very very cool. nice little addition! well done TR.

hype sticker should also say that side b is recommended listening in the red room.

The guitars on this one are astonishing. Foreboding, like a big "period" to underline the words Reznor speaks over the inane, less danceable NIN tracks. Navarro appears to be the MVP here.

I haven't seen this mentioned anywhere. The two lyric sheets are mirror images of each other. The red one's glossy text is the same as the blue ones regular text, and on the blue's glossy text being the same as the red one's regular text. If you have both it's really cool to compare them side by side.

Oh ya this sounds good. There are some complex and intertwining sounds on this thing yet it comes across crystal clear. The vocals are recorded kinda low and are a tad bit compressed, I think in part due to the many effects used. I actually think Reznor uses compression as a production tool so don't be surprised in the varying clarity of parts of the songs. This is why you must play this record loud as the sticker suggests because everything becomes more transparent then and the little nuances can be heard, there's all these little sound effects here and there that really add to the awesomeness of these tracks. Great recording. Super happy with the dense, intricately layered beats. What a great musical experience, there's so much to be revealed in this music. The drums sound killer too. I don't know how he does it. 10/10.

This is a superb pressing...as expected. Trent Reznor says that this vinyl is the way this album should be heard, and he wasn't kidding! Truly amazing. My copy had the black powder on it (only a thin, thin layer), but if you house the sleeve in the plastic cover it comes with you shouldn't have an issue with it. The entire EP is on the A-side, while the B-side contains backwards versions of "Hurt", "The Downward Spiral", and "Reptile". They are based off the 2017 Definitive Edition of The Downward Spiral vinyl, so even though they're backwards they still sound incredible!
