Track C3, DLB, is listed on hype sticker and as track 9 both side C and D labels. It does actually play on both sides, but on side D, it is more of an intro into "Hourglass" and has no banding separating it from the next track.

Side D has a locked groove which repeats the last few seconds of “Get The Lead Out”.

Black inner sleeves with rounded corners

Love this album, probably the best in the APC discography.

My copy unfortunately has significant surface noise despite cleaning both record and stylus. Especially in silent parts. Other than that, great album.

Here's a video I made of the locked groove on the US release in case there is more confusion: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8sGnabceTfM

Last track is not complete, does anyone have same issue? Can´t believe how records are made now a days

I keep reading stuff about "THis record has a lockd groove" yet mine doesn't. I don't even mean like that my record "skips" locked grooves. Like my needle stays on a locked groove until I pick the needle up but it just goes to the inner grooves like it wouldn't.

Too much piano!!! :( I like some of the tracks but there are too many bland ones.

I wasn't expecting Mer De Noms Part 2. That would be asking too much. But this is not good. A few cool tracks and a lot of nonsense. Jaw dropping levels of dull. The subject matter of "Disillusioned" is enough to make me gag. Yuck. We get it. You don't like society.

This is not my album. Sounds good but its to boring for my. Very different to the other both albums.

I have two copies and both have very noisy/distorted sound on track C1. Ordered from amazon.de

I don't care about the cover I just love the band. This is a great record!
