I have the picture discs and they sound terrible. I never play it and it's too bad.
They look cool but they really should release a black audiophile pressing of this album!

I bought it 5-6 years ago, listened to it 3-4 times. This copy (the picture disc, the "original" one) stays there, in the "T" on the shelf, lonely...without turntable's needle on it. I don't know why I never listened to it again......one of the records that I forgot...too easily.

i remember i had this three or four years ago, it was purchased on amazon (sealed) and was returned after a week or so: what really made me crazy to the point to return it, was the needle that skipped all over the place!
if you want to own a nice looking tool picture disc, then go for it, your eyes will surely thank you.
but if you want it to enjoy the sound too, do yourself a favor: save money and avoid it!!

I really love Tool and Lateralus! It is a masterpiece of an album. My issue is with this vinyl pressing in particular.
1. The packaging was really tight and I feel I'm going to scratch the disc every time I put it in and take it out
2. The smell..... really, it smelled weird when I first opened it
3. The art. Tool is known for having really surreal amazing art and I feel, besides the main sleeve, it's very much lacking. This could have benefitted from clear vinyl or something rather than the black
4. The grooves are really shallow, which I feel leads to constant skipping
5. No labels or even a track listing.. come on Tool.

As much as I love the contents of this album the vinyl "Limited Edition" Feels like a cheap facsimile rather than a premium.

Ok, this is not a review of the music on the album, just the packaging of this particular release. Also it is my own personal opinion.
I was genuinely quite excited for this when I bought it online, but feel pretty underwhelmed by it.
First of all the limited release tag – not a major gripe but I bought this new from a major online record store, considering it was released in 2005, so perhaps not so limited. I am not suggesting I would want it to be limited; I would probably have had to pay quadruple than what I did if it had been. However slapping a ‘limited edition’ tag on any record makes it instantly more desirable to fans and collectors, which means in this case attaching that particular label seems somewhat disingenuous.
Secondly, the art work. You can’t really escape from the fact that although the geometric type design it is quite eye catching, it is just one small and quite simple image repeated, this in contrast to the intricate artwork to be found in the CD packaging. I like the metallic finish which looks cool when it catches the light but as the phrase goes ‘all that glitters is not gold’. The art work on the discs makes you question why they bothered to go for picture discs at all as it seems more than 50% of each disc is just dead space.
Thirdly the quality of materials used. I like the thick gatefold sleeve but the inserts are black and white copies of the cover artwork with some additional technical information printed on the back and seem to be made of cheap almost magazine like paper, in my copy they also smell funny.
Fourthly the sound quality, I am no expert here, but on my particular copy, straight from the sleeve to the deck, there seems like a lot of background noise to the extent you feel distracted from the music and are left sitting there why am I not just listening to the CD? So to check I wasn’t just imagining it or that it wasn’t my equipment, I put on another brand new record I purchased at the same time (Metallica – Garage Inc.) and the difference was quite striking.
I wish I had had a look on discogs before I bought it, I guess there are reasons why there are so many cheapish copies on sale.
All of this is of course in contrast to the high quality of packaging production and audio quality to be found on the CD.
Or is it just me?

Is this an official release or a bootleg? I think my local store has one, but am on the fence about actually buying it. I do want proper analogue quality music and not a CD (or vinyl) rip.

I've had mine for several months now and have played it about half a dozen times. It sounds great each and every time.

It's also very nice to just look at.
