Does it have "One Day" as the last track like CD version?

Big difference between the sound quality of this reissue and early pressings. I own both. The early pressings sound beautiful... even better than CD. This new reissue sounds flat and lacks depth (like a low quality MP3). Washed over artwork too. These new represses by Nettwerk are sloppy in my opinion. Put your money towards an early pressing. It's worth it. Now I hear they're reissuing VIVI and Rabies. They're going to slaughter the whole catalog I guess.

Roman Polanski is thanked in the liner notes because the track "Choke" samples dialogue from the Polanski film "The Tenant."

Bought this album from Our Price on the Moor (Sheffield) back in 1986. I still enjoy listening to this album. Skinny Puppy at their funky, menacing best. The CD re-release added extra tracks which should have been placed at the back of this eight track master.

My copy sounds excellent ..It's as clear as a bell no background noise.. The cover is sharp and I can clearly read the track listing.. It's weird that others are not so good. The run out groove has this.. "Pirates Press NMG30002-1A & B

Thanks guys for the reviews. Going to skips these unfortunately, my old compact discs sound fine.
Artoffact Canada should have been used for these. They would of been priced at a premium, but done correctly

The cover art on this 2017 reissue looks so awful with the washed out colours. Bad Nettwerk, bad!!

This album seems to be a little bit underrated. Unjustly. Tracks like Assimilate and Dead Lines served as a blueprint for what became Dark Electronics in the 1990s (yelworC, Placebo Effect, Splatter Squall) and, of course, the North American Electro-Industrial movement (Numb, Mentallo & The Fixer, Yeht Mae, ...).

Brilliant album, mixing an artistic horror atmosphere with danceable thumpy electronics. It's the great spooky mood that makes it the sonic adventure it is. What a disco in an ancient haunted mansion would be like. Let the ectoplasm flow... Too bad they gave up much of that atmosphere for less interesting and more brutish noise and effects on later albums.

Years of confusion about track titles resulted from errors in identifying tracks and sides on label and sleeve on my copy of this release.
