Really impressive and affordable pressing, loads of detail to dig into

I would love to see a "Second Collection" of this album like they did the the debut album and "First Collection"!

I just picked up a slightly different variant of this release, barcode and run-out are the same, but it does not include the MP3 card and the hype sticker is also different in that the wording about the MP3 has been deleted. Same font and colors as the sticker from this release, though. So I'm not sure if I have a variant of this version or a newer re-issue, does anyone have any information or have a similar version? Everything seems the same except the MP3 card and hype sticker.

I purchased this from my local record store brand new, unsealed. Weirdly enough, it only came with two disc 2s (both were Side C & D)! If anyone has an extra disc one, or it came with two Disc 1's, let's trade lol.

Anyone have an extra disc 1? I only have disc 2 in my collection.

Great album indeed, meant to be heard on vinyl. This is an excellent pressing, full frequency, quiet, great imaging.

Got some no fill issues near the end of side B but not a huge issue. Dynamics are quite good.
