    I have this copy but my vinyl doesn’t seem being 180gram.

      Sounds really good to me. Only complaint is that the photos and text on and inside the jacket seem blurry. Would've been nice if that was clearer, but the vinyl sounds great

        I bought this about a year ago. There was no indication of colour until I opened it. It is a pale puke colour. Gross. However this sounds very good.

          Quiet, flat, dynamic, all you can ask for in a reissue.

          edit: it does have a rubbing sound on side b. once per rpm you can hear a crackle if it's a quiet part.

            It sounds pretty good. Highly recommended, no doubt. Cop it !

                My version is also a pinkish color. I uploaded a photo.

                    I have own this same reissue since 2003.
                    I was wondering about release year?
