Which is the better LP to own, the first one or the second pressing with the alternate cover?

recommended back in 1982 from my local mail order / record shop.
still have the original USA first pressing.
after almost 30 years old this album still gives me chicken skin, deep fear and makes me nervous when listening to it in the dark.
a timeless classic the Beatles could never made or produce.

The absolute masterpiece of industrial music. Deep electronic drones, creeping synths, metal percussions, machinery noises and frightening voices create the gloomy and hopeless potrait of modern post-industrial society. The original press on Thermidor had the picture of a human face completely burnt by napalm, and on the backside a black and white blurred shot of the band on stage, masked and menacing. THIS is what industrial is about.
