Such an incredible remaster. Sounds so clear and with great dynamic range. I compared this to a copy of the original 7 inch single "A Person isn't Safe Anywhere These Days", and it's really close in quality. Most of the time, I've found that original pressings sound much better than the remaster. But in this case, it's super close, if not, a little better. Can't recommend this pressing enough. Only issue I have with it is the cover. It's a serious downgrade from the beautiful original artwork. But it looks okay enough. Overall, a really great remaster, and worth getting. Especially since the original is pretty hard to come by.

I do not the share the opinion that this release offers the perfect sound. Especially when using headphones it reveals very dominating highs, almost aggressive on side 1. I‘m guetting ear fatigue during the first 3 tracks, the rest of the album is better. Furthermore, the last song of each side shows a significant decrease of sound quality. Would love to compare this to an initial pressing which I unfortunately do not have.

I have the exact copy, but the sticker on the shrink is different, actually it is the sticker of the numbered "1000 copies" release. Is this a misprtint version ??

Does anyone have a comparison of the textured vs glossy sleeves? Difficult to tell from photos here. Having trouble determining which pressing I have since my matrix numbers don't perfectly match any of the existing releases. Thanks!

The original didn't have a gatefold sleeve, and yes the artwork is bit different but WOW the sound is pure crisp and bold, couldn't be happier one of the best pressings I have listened too. Just waiting for their third album to get a reissue.

Great pressing. Very full. I’ve owned my copy since 1985 and it’s held up incredibly well after A LOT of plays

I would prefer a gatefold release, with the original artwork. However, the remaster is excellent, so a good add to my collection.

What a failure of a rerelease. cover print of the artwork is a disaster and why 2 LPs and than no gatefold?

A milestone of that genre.
'Second skin' justifies the buying of this perfect record.
A must have.
