I was just wondering whether this edition came with some sort of generic company inner sleeve or it was released with a plain white with no distinct features? Some sellers refer to inner sleeve, but no Picture or description in the notes about OIS on this release page?

The band already went through lineup changes, as Ian McDonald left, leaving wind instruments to Mel Collins (previous of the band Circus, the band that recorded for Transatlantic, that is, and later all over the place including Camel, The Alan Parsons Project, Clannad, etc.). Mellotron duty now left up to Robert Fripp. Even Greg Lake didn't want to continue on, he simply laid the vocal tracks and left the bass up to Michael Giles brother Peter. Gordon Haskell was brought in for one vocal track, and Keith Tippett for piano.

Popular opinion is this is a pale rehash of their debut and nothing more. Did they listen to the second half? I mean the quirky "Cat Food", complete with tinkling piano from Keith Tippett would have been out of the question on their debut, and the Mellotron heavy "Devil's Triangle", partially borrowed from Holst's The Planets, which really gets off the deep-end. I remembered back in 1991 when I bought this tripping out as a 19 year old, and glad to start hearing Mellotron on something other than a Moody Blues album. I do have to admit the first half are more in line of their debut. "Pictures of a City" is a horn-dominated piece not unlike "21st Century Schizoid Man", "Cadence and Cascade" with Gordon Haskell on vocals, is more mellow, on the lines of "I Talk to the Wind", and the title track is a Mellotron-laden epic like "Epitaph". It might not be as strong as their debut, but still a worthy followup.
