Purchased my copy only a year or so ago, at a shop in Toronto, Canada. I thought it might be a European pressing because it had an Italian Artists’ publishing rights society hologram sticker on the shrink wrap. Has anyone come across this? No Italian text anywhere on sleeve, everything else has the hallmarks of the standard US release. Everyone should own this album by the way, it’s my gateway album to recommend to the uninitiated.

Of my two copies, one has a white shell and the other a clear one. Don't know if they should be different versions. I can find no other apparent characteristics in which they differ.

yeah, plaidzebra, it's the only record I can think of that I have to turn the treble way down lower than the bass on the marantz 1060 :) Takes "brightness" to a whole new meaning....

In my mind, this is the quintessential Hüsker Dü album. The production is finally freed from the oppressively shit sound of Spot, and the songs have a depth and luster that is missing from earlier recordings. "The Baby Song" still irritates the shit out of me after 25+ years, but let it be said that the band had a sense of humor. The album is otherwise packed with maximum impact songs that meld their hardcore beginnings with a sixties aesthetic and an irrepressible melodicism. Highly recommended, if you can believe me. I've heard it said that the sound is lo-fi, but my vinyl copy, while heavy on the treble, sounds clear and rages like a motherfucker.
