My copy sounds very good. A nice pressing ‘dead quiet’.

I just got my hands on this copy still sealed, the guy who sold it says it's a 180 gram vinyl but it doesn't say that anywhere on the packaging. can anyone confirm if this issue is a 180 gram or not??

my version of this album has side 2 labels on both sides of the vinyl, not sure if that's how its meant to be.
