Notes

This release can be differentiated from Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness by the matrix/runout info and the increased amount of dead wax on each side. This corrected the inner groove distortion problems.
It was silently released to retailers in late 2014 or early 2015.

4xLP box set. Pressed on 180 gram vinyl with updated art on the box and on the inner sleeves. Includes 2 books featuring band member notes, photos, lyrics, and additional art and photos.

This pressing sounds fantastic! Open and wide soundstage. Instruments are detailed and crisp. Overdriven parts pack a punch and the quiet passages are delicate and seem to sparkle. Outstanding Master. Packaging is very nice as well. Super pleased with this.

So, I bought this because I'm not going to fork out $300-500. I think it sounds good. I think the original CD sounded bigger, thicker, and had more dynamic. The vinyl itself is nice and pretty clean. But the mastering is clearly digital and definitely is colder than the original mastering job. My impression listening to it is that the engineer was pushing track pronouncement but lost some of the muck that made the original piles of big muffs sound awesome. So the separation of instruments is nice, but you're losing something. Just my two cents.

The reality is, format/media aside, original masters are going to sound better 95% of the time because they were conceived when the album itself was conceived and therefore be more in line with the sound the artist was going for when they made the music. The mastering tech matches the engineering and mixing tech. It's called production unity, and it's the most important element of judging the assembly of an album in my opinion.

Is there anyway of telling this version from the original 2012 release just by looking at the box? My local record store has a sealed copy and I really want it, but I'm afraid of getting the botched version. Would you think that since it's been around five years that those old copies should most likely be replaced by this better version?

Great record, so far have only a little bit of distortion around the end of Tonight, Tonight leading into the beginning of Jellybean which seems to sort itself out by the end of the track.

I'm so glad this is the version I was shipped when I ordered it last week from Amazon.ca. Were all of the botched 2012 US reissues recalled from retailers?

They should offer this as a replacement for all the people who bought the 2012 reissue. I don't feel like forking over more dough to fix their mistakes..

I recently buy a copy of this edition from an discogs user, he saids he get it at Amazon in October 2014, and it is true (he show me the amazon receipt). So maybe there must be a mistake in the release date. Matrix match with this supposed "2015" version and not with any other 2012 version. So how do you explain this? It is sure that this version release was this year an not a another 2012 version?
