Sticker on shrink wrap reads:

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.

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

    Suprisingly good sound quality for 1 hour of music pressed to a single disc.
    The sound can compete with remastered CD copies easily.

      why is this still overpriced? it doesn’t worth anything above 30$.

      It’s a decent sounding issue and can be had as a secondary variant to latest 2x Reissue!

        Picked this copy up from an independent store in 2018 for around £29 - the sound is quiet, and has inner groove distortion on Rooster and Would?. Other than that, sibilance/noise floor is pretty low. Gonna give the 2LP set a try.

        Equipment used: Technics SL-1400MK2, AT-VM95SH cartridge, Pioneer A-30 Amplifier, Klipsch Speakers

            Between this and the new 2LP 2022 reissue this is the superior version. The MOV pressing has zero non fill or heatwarps like the new ones do. It is much quieter and higher quality totally as expected from the respective plants.

            Whats weird is how the MOV (when equalised in volume to the new editions) sounds more dynamic, tonally believable and free of distortion on the peaks, retaining this quality all the way to the end of the sides EVEN with a humble Shure M75 elliptical cart of years gone by. With modern brighter carts with finer lines the advantage only grows in favour of the MOV. The new cut has a little extra width which i thought was good initially but theres no depth actually sounds flatter the lomger you compare. It is obviously cut louder but sadly its like a badly mastered CD on noisy non filled vinyl requiring 3 get ups just to see the crappy mastering all the way through to the merciful end.

            Yeah, no contest to my ears, the MOV wins this one.

            No offence to the new press owners!!

              With the previous mixed reviews I have to say my MOV release sounds great, no inner groove distortion or sib, very dynamic and nice soundstage , i came on here to see about the new 2 record set and as im writing im listening to this and again it sounds great! I will prob end up getting the 2lp version because its such a great monumental record , prob the best of the grunge era, see above review(tomwebb) agree 100%

                While the new 2LP does appear to be the superior press, I'm actually more impressed by the MOV pressing in the sense that it sounds this excellent on a single LP. Truly astonished that 56 minutes of music can sound this good on a single record. If only KID A MNESIA could have fared the same.

                  Personally, I think this copy sounds pretty good, and I also like not having to flip it more than once. I just purchased the latest 2 disc release, but am re-thinking opening it. Flipping records after 3 songs can be a real hassle...

                    Not sure how wide spread this is but my copy is ridiculously noisy. Sealed copy, actually unlistenable.

                    So happy the new release has already been announced, pre-ordered in a heartbeat.

                      ok fingers crossed on the new legacy reissue hope we get a all analog cut but i doubt it nevertheless it should still sound good being they are spreading it out over 2xlp
