    I got this clear vinyl version around 15 years ago in a collection. I finally compared it to my 1993 european (dutch) pressing and there is really no comparison - the black vinyl 1993 dutch pressing blows this away. No idea why. This clear "limited edition" pressing sounds very clear and clean, but it just lacks the energy and presence of the 1993 dutch pressing. Is it possible that there is more than one master of In Utero?

      Incredible dynamic pressing that deserves five stars! The drums and bass sounds on ‘Milk It’ and ‘Radio Friendly..’ sound so real and in your face. The raw power of Kurt’s guitar tone is amazing and still his vocals so prominently in the mix. ‘All Apologies’ is a highlight. This LP nails it all.

        Some guy in the states was selling several sealed copies of this for $25 a pop on eBay around 15 years ago. That was a pretty good price even back then. I bought one and considered getting 2 but decided $50 was too expensive..

          There’s a sonic violence and sheer raw power to the music here that’s not entirely present on any other pressing of this magnificent album, the music shreds through the speakers especially on the heavier songs like milk it. Nirvana really got their original vinyl pressings to be as amazing as possible it seems, the drums pack a intense wallop and the guitars growl with clarity and presence. My copy is pretty much mint but does have some surface noise in between songs and on the quieter moments of pennyroyal tea but it doesn’t interfere with the playback that much. I highly recommend picking this up if your willing to pay a good bit for a phenomenal sounding record or are a massive fan of nirvana or just in utero in general. The only other vinyl copy of in utero that I liked as much as this is the 3LP DMM 20th Anniversary Edition That Includes All The B-sides and some alternate mixes of the hits. The 2009 ORG coloured vinyl is cool too but feels abit too clean and “hifi” for a raw and aggressive album like in utero in my opinion.

            I bought this Special Limited Edition copy shortly after it came out in 1993, probably paid around $15. I'm a music fan... I don't buy vinyl as an investment. For some reason, I didn't open this. I still have it today, mint condition, sealed in plastic. One of the few albums in my collection I'll likely never play.

              By far and away the best sounding album I own, the art work on the cover is clear and detailed versus the blurry “back to black edition” which is the for shadowing of what’s to come. So crisp and clear, perfect. Like others have sad take my money, now I need to find a Nevermind copy this good.

                Man, words fail me when it comes to describing this masterpiece. It's Nirvana at their absolute pinnacle and it shows throughout. A treasure trove of emotional depth. I don't think of it as being bleak, for me it's life affirming and I don't think that I could praise an album anymore then that.

                In terms of the quality of the record, this absolutely blew me away. One, if not the best sounding records that I own. Near Mint and it still sounds flawless. I never really noticed the bass with the CD pressing before but this.. You can hear everything, such a great groove. Every single detail feels like it's placed without any thought but that is what makes it great. You won't regret this, worthy of the investment and taking home something magical

                  I picked this up years ago on eBay for about 50 bucks or so. I thought I was INSANE for dropping that on a record. Years later I realize 50 bucks was a good deal. Best sounding copy I’ve ever heard. Better than any remastered versions floating around now.

                    I dont know if it was my record store only that received this about 2 weeks after the cd and cassette came out. All my friends were jamming to it, but luckily there was no internet, so aside from the HSB single I was able to remain pure from it until I got this.

                    My initial reaction was whoa! Nothing what I expected, but Kurts plan was to alienate people who gravitated towards the band because of Nevermind. To me, it pulls elements of the 3 prior releases.

                    This record screams grunge/rock and maintains balance with Dumb and All Apologies two of Kurts best songs imho. I love this album and played it to shreds. It was so unbelievable to me that there would never be a follow up and to imagine what could have been. But Kurt gave his all on this one.

                    This clear issued vinyl was definitely the 1 press for the US and there was no reissue until years later. All the black vinyl issues from 93 were from different countries.

                    This press is the album in its rawest form. Excellent and when I finally got the cd a few years later, I didnt feel it come across the same at all. Still a great album, but this record is an actual experience. Maybe the best rock pressing of the 90s.

                      This is the version to have. Full, raw, and alive! I just want to listen to it again as soon as it’s done. Amazing press.
