Thievery Corp would never again match the stony cool of this album.

Track 1, "A Warning" sounds like it has distortion/clipping on mine. Does anyone else's have this issue?

My copy has only the Groove Attack logo printed on the back, no Ninety-Nine logo appears, it does mention Ninety-Nine GmbH though.
Is this a different pressing?

Just a note: The track here "A Warning" is the track that appears on the ESL Dubplate single, and is different from "A Warning (Dub)" that appears on other versions. Same thing goes for the extended version of "Universal Highness". Further, "Shaolin Satellite" is the version found on the 12" single, and has been lengthened by a minute or so. "2001 Spliff Odyssey" differs from other versions by having a sample of someone talking during the period right before the sound of bottles clanking together (I'd assume that there was some copyright issue). "So Vast As The Sky" is as appears on the Dubbed Out In D.C. compilation (and which is longer than on the 4AD cd), and all other tracks are as they appear on other versions of this release. Worth it if you can find it.
