      Don't waste your money on this! the 2012 Abbey Road Studios remaster The Chameleons - Script Of The Bridge is the definitive digital version, sounds way better than this and it's cheaper.

        Tip for anyone picking up a new copy: my copy was pretty noisy, especially between tracks even after giving it a wash in a Spin Clean. After a play I noticed a bit of build up on my stylus looking at it with a USB microscope (I couldn't see it with the naked eye). I cleaned the stylus and played the album a few times w/o listening to it to get the rest out. After doing so the vinyl is dead silent. This is ultimately an excellent pressing, it just has some pressing residue from the factory. Give it a clean and or a few plays and it should clean right up. Just be sure to clean your stylus after each side and you should be good.

          The third note for the other U.S. releases shown on Discogs reads: "Original MCA Records packaging was in transparent cellophane with big red sticker saying "Chameleons U.K." and featuring some titles and also stating the MCA catalogue number." The "red sticker" part is correct. I bought this album brand new when it was originally released, and it was in yellow shrink wrap. Besides the red sticker, it also contained a small, gold, rectangular Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price sticker. I also have a sealed copy I bought recently wrapped in the exact same yellow shrink. Some copies may very well have been in clear shrink, but I've never seen one. Any picture of this record without a very marked yellow appearance was either originally wrapped in clear shrink, has had the yellow shrink removed, or was shipped to a radio station or record store as a promo in clear shrink, or with no shrink, having the stickers attached directly to the cover, as was common at that time.

                  One of the greatest post-punk records, hands down. Such an underrated band.

                    Such an incredible remaster. Sounds so clear and with great dynamic range. I compared this to a copy of the original 7 inch single "A Person isn't Safe Anywhere These Days", and it's really close in quality. Most of the time, I've found that original pressings sound much better than the remaster. But in this case, it's super close, if not, a little better. Can't recommend this pressing enough. Only issue I have with it is the cover. It's a serious downgrade from the beautiful original artwork. But it looks okay enough. Overall, a really great remaster, and worth getting. Especially since the original is pretty hard to come by.

                      I have the exact copy, but the sticker on the shrink is different, actually it is the sticker of the numbered "1000 copies" release. Is this a misprtint version ??

                        Does anyone have a comparison of the textured vs glossy sleeves? Difficult to tell from photos here. Having trouble determining which pressing I have since my matrix numbers don't perfectly match any of the existing releases. Thanks!
