Reissue, which on first glance looks very similar to the original US pressing. There are, however, several differences that identify this as a reissue:

(1) The original pressing has "Printed in the USA" on the back cover as well as on the insert. This pressing does not.
(2) The original has the following text on the center labels: "Warning: All rights reserved. Unauthorized duplication is a violation of applicable laws. Made in the U.S.A." This pressing instead has: "FBI Anti-Piracy Warning: Unauthorized copying is punishable under federal law. All rights reserved." (again, no information as to where the reissue was manufactured).
(3) The reissue seems to have a slightly wider spine when compared to the original.
(4) The reissue comes in square, white polylined innersleeves.
(5) The reissue has different runout etchings and stamps.

This is an amazing sounding record. Considering the price. Also, it's an album recorded digitally in 1999-2004. What can you expect?

Looking for disc 1 without the sleeve - if anyone has a spare disc 1 please let me know

Does anyone else have ‘Mastered by Capitol’ on side A?

Personally, my copy sounded great! Spindleholes were a bit too tight but otherwise I don't have many complaints. Full dynamic sound throughout

how do i know if i have an OG 2004 or a repress when it's sealed/without opening?

Haven't seen anyone mentioning the fact that both School Spirit Skits and the Lil Jimmy Skit are on here? Does suck not having intro, I'll fly away, and workout plan on here, but the 3 that are here are easily the most important. Also, kinda odd that Through the Wire is so early on, but that's the only change to the track order. It's a good record to have, could be better, but definitely still great and a classic album nonetheless

My disc 2 has some pretty persistent background noise and pops across both sides. Disc 1 doesn't which is a shame as otherwise a fairly decent pressing despite the changed track order.

Pretty standard pressing of a great record. Bass stands out quite nicely without being too overwhelming. The omission of the skits is baffling though, especially the intro skit. Destroys the narrative and flow of the record. Might have come down to a time and fidelity issue on each side but there looks like there's enough dead wax to make it work. Worth purchasing if you can find it for a decent price, but probably best sticking with the CD and/or streaming.

This is my most disappointing record because there are no skits, which are so integral to the record. The quality isn’t terrible but having the skits missing ruins the experience

Not sure why reviews are all over the place but I'm very happy with the pressing. The skits absolutely should have been on this though.
