How's the pressing quality for this version? Saw it in my local store, but am a little shy to pull the trigger.

This version has no bar code on the back cover, and on the front there’s a clear sticker at lower right showing a face saying “Painful!” in a speech bubble. (The sticker is hard to make out, though, because it’s a dark color overlaid on a dark background.)

Same, recently purchased pressing, none of the issues mentioned for the earlier issue. Should this be separated as separate issues I wonder? Also, no sticker or gazette. OK, because what I wanted was the music.

A fantastic album and it sounds pretty good, but it is a very noisy pressing this. Unfortunate, but sometimes the crackles are lost underneath the nice noise...

Purchased my copy from Amazon 2/2019. No sticker or gazette, but none of the pressing issues reported by earlier purchasers. Requested a second copy to make sure. Again, no sticker/gazette but pressing is very quiet and flat like the first.

So take your pick. Extra inserts or a nice pressing? I'll happily take the latter.

Is this the 2011 reissue with different runouts? It seems so, I bought it new in the US and it has a download code card.

I created a new issue for the GZmedia pressing most commonly found in stores nowadays.
Biggest difference aside from pressing is that there's no "also includes free download of entire album" sticker.

I seem to have a pressing that looks like it was done at GZVinyl. No WG/NRP, RJ or Sterling inscriptions on the deadwax. To me it sounds a bit like a lame duck, no real drive in the sound at all. Every single disc was badly warped too, even the 7" single! If you can press a 7" single properly and make it flat there isn't much hope!!!

My copy is fairly noisy on side B. Side A is really clear.

There is a new reissue, I think is not pressed at United because it does not have the U etchings and does not come with the gazette and the stickers. Got a different sticker on the cover that does not offer the gazette and the sticker.
