This version has swear words cut out of the song lyrics, so all the dirty words are replaced by edits, hence the "Sanitized For Your Protection" label.

This is a terrible pressing! Where do I start? The sound is dull, flat and lifeless throughout, compression is apparent all the way through, in some cases drum beats are almost entirely lost to it. The vinyl is cheap and noisy, the pressing is off centre, there is audible underfill in places, strange noise in random places, where some tracks on the album mix into the next, on this pressing the transitions between tracks are not smooth and seamless. It starts between track 1 and 2, between The Power of Equality and If You Have To Ask, the first note of IYHTA is a bit too early, out of IYHTA, Breaking the Girl starts too early. After I Could Have Lied, instead of the last note sustaining gently out until Mellowship Slinky crashes in, ICHL comes to an abrupt stop, there is a momentary pause and then Mellowship crashes in, same again after Under the Bridge, the last note should hold and sustain for a few seconds before Naked in the Rain should crash in but instead, the last note ends abruptly, there is a momentary pause then Naked in the Rain starts, also this sounds like the tape has suffered as it's very warbly sounding in the High-Hat at the beginning.
Overall I would give this a 2/10. It's a poor, poor pressing, clearly a hastily thrown together master from an inferior source. It sounds nothing like the CD version I have become accustomed to for the last 25 years and the flow and feel of it is completely lost. Most albums I have on CD and vinyl sound as good as or way better on vinyl but this one completely bucks this trend. It's being returned to Amazon.

Is this tape Type I? Is there a chrome or metal copy of BSSM if this one isn't?

Same pressing as this one :
https://www.discogs.com/fr/Red-Hot-Chili-Peppers-Blood-Sugar-Sex-Magik/release/3426244
but on 140g vinyl.
Same matrix informations and the sound quality is the same. Can't see any difference...
No insert and blank inner sleeves.

Great album to have on vinyl. Gutted I didn't research this release had no inner printed sleeves at all. Other than that this is a great album that needs to be in all collections. My copy also has Suck My Kiss typo on 1st side of record. Nothing too major. Has Suck me kiss instead.

My copy skips 5 seconds into the guitar solo of "If You Have To Ask" anyone else have this problem? That's the only problem I have otherwise the record is one of the cleanest records I own and sounds excellent blared through my sound system.

The mastering is a little on the hotter side, but the sound quality and vinyl quality is excellent. This record is dead quiet and the sound is very dynamic. Drums hit hard and cymbals sparkle without any edginess. I didn't h at any compression whatsoever and this record definitely has a great dynamic range, which speaks a lot given the genre of music.

Sound quality is excellent on this remaster. There is lots of discussion online about the amazing quality of the US remaster, the limited edition on Red vinyl and the regular in Black. Happy to say the Europe pressing is top notch too.
