    I own 2 copies of the Optimal blue issue. The record surface is very rumbly, my black one is much smoother, resulting in a much quieter record surface. So my advice would be to look for the normal black edition rather than the Optimal pressed blue one if playback quality prevails.

      This is the first time I've ever seen the country of origin for an LP labelled as worldwide. It's understandable though, I remember adding this release to Discogs because it arrived a day early, so I typed in the notes section that it was exclusive to HMV UK - Just as the sticker said... then on the day of release this page went absolutely apeshit because nobody could agree where it was actually released! Turns out "Exclusive" meant the specific shop within a specific country, rather than it being the only place in the world to get it from. I guess it was all figured out in the end but I just think its funny how a sticker caused all that confusion XD

        Honestly, I'd judge this to be the best sounding record out of the complete rainbow (and then some) of pressings I have of this album, as it seems to have the warmest/heaviest tone (as odd as that might be).

          From Sunrise Records, Canada. Beautiful blue vinyl, flat, and quiet between tracks. JN-H cut lacquer. Sounds great, perfect actually, flawless.

                  My copy is from FNAC and the blue is a slightly lighter shade
