A good, solid pressing. My copy has pink smudges and swirls in it; when held up to the light, you can see the color in it. Does anyone else have a copy like this?

Limited to 10,000, colored vinyl, decent pressing, good mastering. In the grand sceme of things U2, this will be sought after years from now. Doesn't seem like a big deal now, neither did Pink Floyd's 30th pressing of DSOTM. Or even to take it further, The Beatles Mono 2014 vinyl. Only after they were long gone did they become sought after for alot of people. I guess the point is, if you are a fan of this album, grab a copy now.

It's ok. Not a patch on my original UK Sound Clinic cut. For completist only.

Why didn't they include the original printed card inner in this? Okay theres a (very flimsy) lyric sheet and a poster. But they should be in addition to the original sleeves. No "U2" on the front sleeve either.

Clean pressing for sure, but I do have one skip at the beginning of B1 "Stories for Boys." Nice poster included, too. Aside from the skip very pleased.

Very pleased with this pressing. Heavyweight vinyl with no surface or background noise. Glad I picked this up.
