Vinyl editions:
The initial pressing identifiable by "FSV" and Rays in the runout denoting it was pressed by First Sound and Vision who closed early in 2000 mastered by Ray Staff and the catalog number 490 864-1. Production continued with Optimal Media Production the same year but they omitted the catalog number using "000 000-0" instead. The Optimal Media Production version was repressed at least once with a different mastering engineer responsible for side B. Around 2008 GZ Digital Media produced a facsimile of the initial pressing using the catalog number 490 864-1, but instead of having limited edition stickers and parental stickers affixed, they were actually printed as part of the artwork.

I just picked this up from Waterloo records in Austin, TX and the sound is legit. This is definitely the copy to own.

It seems like some of the tracks have different mastering. Few tracks are a bit louder, than the others. Overall sounds really good and "dirty in queens way"

Be careful when buying this! Ask the seller if it's an original, I was sent a reissue by mistake. Then tried to buy another copy, and that seller had accidently listed a reissue as well. Check before buying!

I got the ''sharp corner sticker/dont make me beg'' version. I agree with what everyone else says about the sound. It's a huge improvement over this version (https://www.discogs.com/Queens-Of-The-Stone-Age-X/release/2984283). However, I have to say this is one of the dirtiest new LPs I've ever bought. LP is covered in dust, almost impossible to remove LP from inner because too much static, scuffs and tiny hairlines all over. Even after cleaning on my RCM there is still noticeable surface noise throughout. Still, sonically its such a big improvement that I will learn to live with these imperfections until hopefully someday all the QOTSA albums will get the audiophile treatment.

I'm for 100% sure that I got the legit version. I can't image the Plato record stores in the Netherlands would sell a bootleg version. anyhow the vinyl version sounds great. Happy that I bought it.

This is the definitive medium for this album. Sound is wonderfully balanced and clear. Vocals sound incredibly organic and I've found that there's a little less sound "lost in the mix" when compared to my CD and FLAC files. Nice heavy vinyl with no surface noise and love the "Don't make me beg..." easter egg. Must own for QOTSA fans that have turntables. Play it LOUD.

Received this version last week. Dynamic range is very narrow and the overall sound quality is flat and quiet. Much like the comments I've been reading on here for other releases. Won't be playing this record again. I'd advise against buying this release. Hold out for an original.

This pressing sounds fantastic, and relative to the cost of other QotSA albums it's a must own. Bought it on discogs and got exactly what I expected. Sweet.

A decent amount of surface noise through first play. Song skipping is prominent as well. Despite the extra LP with Live performances, you'd be better off getting the official Re-release.
