    the bottom text on the back cover of my copy is sliiiiiightly different (yes i bought from a legit retailer), i think some of the definitive editions are getting represses so this might be the reason as to why

      Awesome record. It even has the hidden tracks in a separate 7". Genius!

        Trent Reznor never disappoints. This was a “meh” streaming EP but on Vinyl it sounds absolutely phenomenal. I’ve never heard these songs sound like this, plus the bonus material included takes it over the top (the 7” with Physical and Suck, plus the booklet). Worth every penny and takes this EP to a new level

          Sounds kinda bad, crackly. A shame as I was expecting gold after all these glowing comments, and the fact that it's pressed at Pallas who are normally pretty good.

            One of the best EP’s ever made! This was a very definitive moment in music history! This LP comes with so many bonuses and it sounds incredible!

              Definitive edition is right! Everything about this package and record/s is excellent- from the separately packaged picture sleeves and poly-lined ones holding the records, to the thick booklet, and the phenomenal sounding (crazy amount of layers, no surface noise, detail really shines when you turn it up!) Pallas-pressed EP and single! One of my favorite NIN releases of all time and this pressing really does it justice- I’ve seen em go for $20 at a lot of places and it’s more than worth it for that price point!

                Highly recommended. Great sound and a very nice package overall.

                  Has there ever been any sign of Fixed getting a definitive vinyl release? Or is it too obscure to get enough recognition? I just think it would look really nice to have the blue counterpart to this orange cover.

                    Nice packaging. One thing that makes no sense to me is why this was pressed on a single side at 33 1/3 rpm. With the length of these tracks, they could have put 3 per side and pressed it at 45 rpm, for higher quality audio...volume and fidelity wise.

                      Got this today. It sounds just as good as the other definitive NIN editions in my collection. Mine even came with a duplicate copy of the Physical/Suck single, which was pretty cool.
