Here is a tip on how to define press quickly: on the reissue almost half of A side is dead wax, while on A side of original one the grooves are almost up to the label

My copy says "PROMOTIONAL COPY, NOT FOR SALE" in gold, on the back cover above the track list.
Anyone else?

Does anyone know who did the cover art on the album. I have Googled, etc with no avail. ?

for what it's worth, my text barcode matches this pressing (with different runout etchings) and the store price tag is dated Dec. 21, 2005.

My first CD from DJ Shadow! Blew me away in 1998, still rocks today! Superb collages and great chilling tunes! Just looked up my playlist, the album most played from all of his works, just followed by Endtroducing.

'What Does Your Soul Look Like' part 1-4 are some of my favorite DJ Shadow tracks.

I own most of DJ Shadow's material from "Endtroducing" onwards, but it wasn't until very recently that I obtained this CD, and I have to say, if you liked "Entroducing" (I don't know anyone that doesn't!) then definately get this, because it is superb material. The whole album is absolutely spot on.

this is the album that made me get turn tables. in/flux is the best down tempo tune ever. the samples applied on this album make it breath taking to listen to. 'organ doner', 'in/flux', and 'what does your soul look like?' parts 1-4, are all worth the buy.
