My copy also has a sheet of 6 postcards of various Rough Trade artists - Virgin Prunes, The Slits, Dome, This Heat, Postcard Records, and of course, Cabaret Voltaire.

Label has a misprint, doesn't list "Black Mask" despite clearly having it on the album.

Also bear in mind that this album has alot of sibilance - this is mostly due to mastering and well, in general, the vocals of the album. This is most obviously an issue with something like an VM95E, but is mostly cleared when you get a better cartridge (like an mp-110).

Sounds excellent. If you can't find a clean original, this is a good reissue to own. A solid pressing that plays dead silent and is mastered well. The horns are sharp, drums are punchy and realistic, and a wide soundstage adds great depth to the music.

One of the most groundbreaking albums for the industrial music scene. Continues to inspire!

This boggled me for years until I bought the CD. The track list labels were stuck to the wrong sides. I always thought that Sly Doubt was my favorite track when it was actually A Split Second Feeling.

I own a copy that's completely identical to the one pictured in this entry, back insert states "Made in Britain" and disc surface states "Made in Austria". Considering the latter of these, I suggest this version was manufactured at DADC instead of Nimbus. The matrix/runout on my copy reads "CABS-3-CD 13 B1 Mastered by DADC Austria", barcode is identical to the one in this entry. So, taken into account that there's already another similar version with Nimbus as manufacturer, should this entry be changed from Nimbus to DADC or do I create a new entry for the DADC-version?

Skinny Puppy + Joy Division = this.
Nice surprise this funk/murk is.

Their third studio LP, I think. My favourite! You could call this electronic free jazz or noisy new wave or something else, you'll never talk alone.
CV at the top of their discrete experimental sound.
This 2013 reissue is fine, no remarkable remastering, perhaps a bit clearer = harder.

Labels in my copy look different: they sport the usual Base Records yellow logo in the upper section. Those shown in the pictures here look quite unusual.
