I’m hanging on to this, shoulda been a classic. Sounds in your face and aggressive like the music’s supposed to.

I'll talk non-flipper related business (hiss hiss at those fellas for sure) and get to the record itself: unless you're a die-hard like me, you likely don't need this release since all of it has been previously released in some form over the years. The first thing I noticed was a slight wobble/warp that did not effect play. In fact, I had that issue with more than one RSD release this year. It's not too bad, luckily and the record itself sounds fantastic. Maybe it's a placebo effect of sorts but it does sound different than the previous reissues with more detail. You can definitely feel and hear that tube-y guitar sound made so famous by Greg Sage. The reflective material used for the album art is a nice touch and helps further distinguish this from previous pressings. This might have benefited from being a gatefold considering the addition of the 7". The single sleeve felt a bit overstuffed. Pretty cool over all. I'd give this a solid 4.

Is this getting a standard black pressing later on?? Usually that is the case

Pressing sounds fantastic and the whole package feels really high quality.
