Does it have the lyrics insert?
It's not mentioned in the Discogs description...

A silent, flawless pressing - with what is perhaps one of the lowest noise floors of any modern vinyl release I own - and very rich and deep soundwise, presumably cut in-house on DMM by Record Industry from a high-quality digital file. I got mine cheap as chips at the Yonge & Dundas HMV way back in 2011 - it was quite the find, to say the least. The good news is this same pressing still seems to be in print 8 years later, so if you run across a copy, I'd recommend picking it up!

I assume my copy is this one, except mine got a regular Back to Black sticker (black one), not the yellow one as seen on the cover in the images for this release. Same download card, matrixes, sleeve beside that.
