A great example of what I love in post punk. It's brutal and quite unhinged. I really like that about it. Stuff like over my head and sentimental journey really showcase the brutality of the record. Really superb album

How about some photos of the rear of the sleeve, 'Contributors', so that potential buyers can discriminate this from other releases...?

Is this any good? Like the 2015 edition?? Is the same?

Sleeve has 'Collectors Edition of One Thousand'. If these are 'numbered' I cannot see where.

I agree with Jon. Fantastic pressing. Beautiful bass and very dynamic. Unlike the 2017 Dub Housing which seems to have lost the warm bass in favour of high treble

As far as I'm concerned, this is the definitive pressing. Dave said there were a ton of problems with the original sessions that they fixed for this release. It sounds great! Clear, dynamic, quiet. What specifically they went back in to fix I am not so sure of. It sounds faithful to my ears. It's not like they Iggy-d it up. Get this one!

This is one of the best remasters of this cult classic, I strongly recommend it. Music On Vinyl has few disappointing remasters but this one is fine

I don't read a thing here about the different mix on the Blank label compared to the Rough Trade issue.I own both of them,I read about this difference some time.The Blank mix seems to have less stereo left right effects.Whatever either way,one of my favourite records ever !

What is the best/definitive vinyl pressing of this record? Are any of the reissues ranging from 1980 and onwards better?
