Hey this sounds a lot better than the CD, I'm impressed as it's not exactly an audiophile pressing. The soundscape is much more lush, and not as sharp (eg Horchata no longer has piercing sections)

Also what is the difference between Variant 1 and Variant 2? Pressing dates or what?

Can anyone tell me whether their copy came with a lyrics sheet? Mine was brand-new, sealed in shrink-wrap when I got it but there's no lyrics. I checked the back of the poster because that's the format they used on "Modern Vampires" but it's blank. I have had this copy for a long time, so it's possible I may have just lost the lyrics, but I don't ever remembering seeing them. Anybody have a similar issue?
