Fine pressing and fine sounding. Got one with same catalogue and barecode numbers but with a sticker on back that says "Made in Czech Republic"

When I start listen to side A , music´s sounds quite pitched for me, so I took the original pressing from 1989 and playing both records at same time on Technics SL 1200 MK II , the new repress it´s highly pitched +1 on my turntables. Locked both to zero pitch and repress goes faster. Anyway sounds good, maybe a little bit low volume .

This kind of albums with 5 tracks per side needs a good repress on 2 X LP !!!

This is the black vinyl version.
Wow, what an amazing pressing! I know this release well since it came out, and this is the best version I've heard. Title Track and Channel Z punches you in the gut with drums and bass. Very 3D soundstage. Vinyl is dead quiet. Highly recommended at $22 USD. And mastered by R. Ludwig, score.
