Is there any way to tell the difference between the original UK 1997 release and this 2012 just by the front/back cover? I was sold a sealed original but want to know if it really is. Want to know the difference without opening the original. Can anyone help? RIP Keith Flint

This is without any doubt one of the best sounding vinyl releases I have heard in my life. The sound is just PERFECT on this release. This sounds so much better than the CD. The Music for the Jilted Generation vinyl release sounds great, too, but this album is 22 minutes shorter than Music for the Jilted Generation so there is much more space for each song on each side and you can really hear it !!! If anyone thinks CD is better than vinyl then he must listen to this release !!! You can get this release almost anywhere and it is so easy to find. Buy it. Buy it. Buy it. I love electronic music and this album has not lost any of its freshness ever since it was released twenty years ago.

How can one tell the difference between this 2012 repress from the original 1997 press (http://www.discogs.com/Prodigy-The-Fat-Of-The-Land/release/26194)? According to the Discogs pages, these 2 presses have identical barcodes and matrix runouts??? Anyone know how to distinguish between the two pressings?
