Different tracklisting than the original release. On original release "Down In A Hole" was the second-to-last track, some later reprints move it to track 4 instead. This vinyl version moves it to track 4, which also means the Side B opener ("Dirt") is instead track B2 and the Side A closer ("Junkhead") is the new Side B opener.

B4 is not listed on the jacket or label.

Includes a printed inner sleeve with lyrics & credits.

Tom Araya appears courtesy of Def American Records.

Produced at One on One and Eldorado, 1992.
Mixed at Eldorado.
Mastered at Future Disc, Hollywood, CA.

These prices are outrageous. I read on Reddit that someone recently asked Jerry on a VIP event if they are going to release a 30th anniversary reissue and he said yes. That’s all the information we’ve got. Hope it’s true.

i badly want this and the MOV pressing of jar of flies, but the prices are INSANE. if they reissued both of these, along with the self-titled, i'd jump for joy.

also - am i the only one who prefers "down in a hole" towards the end of the album? seems like few pressings put it there - oh well.

can someone explain how this pressing supposedly sounds good but its 57min of music on one LP? doesn't make sense to me. I thought albums get super compressed when you get past like 47-48min on one disk.

It sounds OK, but definitely not worth the inflated prices it goes for currently. The original sounds a lot better.

This will almost definitely be reissued this year for the 30th anniversary. Hold off.

It sounds pretty good overall but it does sound slightly compressed. Still one of my favorite LP's I own now. I wish they would have done a pressing in the US back in 92. SAD!

Overall 8.3/10 = Cut: 6/10; Pressing 9/10; Music 10/10 (obviously).

Correct, clean pressing from a high res file, but could/should sound fatter and wider. Really needs to be all-analog. I sold my copy straight out of my collection because the market valuation made it impossible to refuse. If MOV represses it, I might buy it again. If someone does an analog cut, I'll absolutely buy it. This album needs depth and breadth and instead this sounds a bit compressed and thin-sounding. Shame.

Lots of varying opinions here. I purchased the cd within a month of the original release and have been listening to it for a long time. I've been on a vinyl buying spree lately to purchase what I already have on cd as almost all of them sound significantly better on vinyl.
System is a Primaluna 300, VPI prime signature w/ Hana Red, Modwright 9.0x phonostage and Spatial Audio Sapphire M3 speakers. CD player is a Marantz K1 Ruby.
There are a few records I have been disappointed with and this is one of them. Although the cd doesn't even sound that great (decent, but not great), this record is awful. Seems like it is too high in the 300-800-ishhz area. No bass slam, no ballz. Sounds like a blanket on my speakers. I have the first pressing of Jar of Flies, self-titled and of course unplugged and they all sound GREAT. If they don't remaster this again next year maybe I'll go hunting for an original pressing.

Why is this so expensive and hard to find? UwU
