      After going back & forth based on these comments, I ordered this repress. Too bright for my taste, sounded very digital,played it once, then ordered the UK original.

          The matrix on my copy ends with a B. Made in Czech Republic label on the back.

            Better than the Vinyl180 pressings, but the sound is still so incredibly dynamically compressed that it is close to unlistenable. Sounds like MP3 on a shitty DAC.

              My version does not come with a download card. The hype sticker reads "Remastered from HD Audio Pressed on Audiophile 180 gram vinyl." Runout on Side 1 is CAD 3709 167788E1/B, rather than 167788E1/A.

                Hmmphf my new copy is noisy as heck. TONS of surface noise, very noticeable during the opening track, between tracks, and anytime they go quiet (like Multifoiled where she sings over just the drums). Not impressed with the remastering either this is so compressed. I am not enjoying this copy at all, and am a huge fan this is my favorite album, so I know how great the disc sounds. I think I may be better off reselling it and shelling out for an original pressing. Or maybe just toss it so no one else is burdened by it and at least one is out of circulation.

                  This version sounds nice enough, but I’d have been embarrassed to release this packaging: drab, low contrast, even the bar code is pixelated! C’mon, this is a 4AD release — they’re known for their aesthetics.

                    "The gloss edition is the first edition of the 12". Then came the satin finish with printed inner sleeves, then some of the satin (later still) have the icky white die cut inner sleeves. Oh to miss out on the lyrics of the printed inner sleeves for such a beautiful song, a sad lament . . . "

                    The above, in quotes, is what I originally wrote and I'll keep it there, unedited. However, I have to admit, I am now confused as to which came first between the satin and the gloss 12”. And I don’t know why I was sure of what I wrote at the time. Here on Discogs, the release date is stated as the same for both (24 October 1983), but Discogs isn't always correct. I have gone to the Eyesore.no website, but that didn’t help (this is a good source for 4AD facts, written when the information was fresh). Unfortunately facts such as this can get distorted with time, I don’t want to be part of that distortion, so I apologise.

                    To make it clear, matt finish has no laminate on it (or varnish – two different processes for a similar effect) and hence no sheen at all. Matt can be a lovely finish, but can be prone to marking and finger prints as the laminate / varnish is also there to protect the print. Satin is in between matt and glossy, it has a slight sheen, some confuse it for matt, some also confuse it for glossy – and that is because it is in between. Glossy has a definite SHINE to it, a visible ‘coating’ it makes the print look ‘wet’. Aesthetically, there are arguments to use them all, it’s a matter of taste and what is appropriate for the project. If you see all three examples in front of you, it is easy to spot the difference, if you just have a satin finished cover, then it can be confusing.

                    My guess is still that the gloss came first as it was the most obvious choice. However, the image is very delicate, not much variation in colours (can look a grey mess if printed wrong), it is a quiet, gentle, photograph; so, perhaps they then decided to try a satin finish? It seems strange they would print two different finishes on the same day. A similar example of this is with the UK 12” Spanglemaker, release date April 2 1984, some are embossed, others not. I bought Spanglemaker on first release and there was no notification of the difference, they weren’t selling the embossed as a limited edition, so it was weird there were two variations on the cover . . .

                    I have written to 4AD, as it would be good to know. Of course DIscogs could have the details stated correctly and I might be making a silly meal of this . . .

                        I don't understand these "Vinyl 180" remasters / re-issues. [I can understand it for certain limited or collector editions, but even then I'd rather 4AD have full charge.] Why are the Vinyl 180 discs pressed, when 4AD is still pressing them? It seems a conflict of interests, and I don't understand why 4AD would allow it.

                        Such as this standard reissue of Head over Heels with the horrible vin180 logo on the disc labels. And look at the shocking lack of colour on the album cover (all silver and lacking the necessary red which defines what it is - flower heads and helicopter seeds on dappled water).

                        People have already commented on the sound production not being good. I have a choice of getting the authentic 4AD product or Vinyl 180 - of course I will buy the 4AD.
