The packaging being in a hardbook edition is quite nice, but I do agree with Alwills regarding the inner sleeves not being vinyl friendly. I have the records in mofi sleeves and all together placed inside the original sleeves, and they fit just fine. Now, regarding the audio quality, I do not have an original to compare it with, and I am not able to tell whether the records have been remastered from CD or not. I plan on looking for an original, possibly a Japanese pressing, to try to hear the difference. Overall, I'm pretty happy with this version, and I would say it's a must have for any Bunnymen fan.

Legend has it Bill Drummond saw this album on the floor, foreshortened, and briefly saw the face Echo, the leader of the Bunnymen. If you look at the album from the bottom, with the bottom side closest to you eye and the top furthest, you can see the optical illusion. Unintentional but fun.

I was underwhelmed by this release. Firstly it's almost impossible to take the records out of the package without causing some damage because the thick printed inner sleeves are tightly packed and not vinyl friendly. I decided to place them into separate white inners for safe-keeping.

But my biggest gripe is that it sounds like it was remastered from CD onto vinyl resulting in a very compressed mix. My original LP sounds so so much better. Disappointed.

Purchasers of this first edition were able to write in to get the "Do It Clean" 7" single which appeared with later version of the album.
