did anybody get a surprise when they opened the RSD 2015 release? Apparently, instead of getting four tools they got Tool (2) - Opiate

Killer album info here, everyone.

Anyone else have a weird label on side D? Mine is raised and somewhat bubbled while all other sides are normal. Didn't know if mine ended up printing weirdly or that's common.
