    Just received this for a birthday gift. This is definitely one of my holy grail pieces. There looks to be no skimping on the art work. Turntable is in storage ATM so I can’t speak to audio quality yet. Anyone have any insight on how to date the copies between 2012/2014/ 2022?

      I pre ordered this in 2012 when amazon canada messed up in their pricing. They emailed me and said they would let me know if it came in stock. I put it on a credit card and forgot about it. I paid $38. Going to play this again and see if it sounds as bad as I recall. I know zero is awful but i don't remember the rest of the album sounding bad. I'll report back.

        I have a question for You all that can make some difference in recognizing this copy from the 2014 one.
        Is there anyone who is able to tell if this"worldwide"version has the FBI anti piracy logo on the back?
        since there is not the back image of the box here there is no chance to tell the eventual difference.
        thank You to everyone who'd love to answer.

          just got my copy from a local record store with pristine condition. the sound of this remastered version is very amazing!

            Beautiful box set. Great quality. A masterpiece of an album.

              This sounds absolutely awesome- I’ve always heard the muddy cd and streaming versions and it’s always lacked clarity for me - this version completely represents every instrument and sound perfectly. Would highly recommend getting a copy if you can

                I was really let down by this pressing when I first left my comment on here but turns out my stylus was worn out and replacing it fixed most of the problems I had, so I should probably update this comment lol. My copy actually sounds really good minus side A which sounds kinda muddy and flat but everything else sounds great! Some inner groove distortion on side A too but nothing too awful. Packaging is incredible, love all the artwork! Def recommend this if you can get a decently priced copy, probably one of the weaker sounding pressings compared to my other SP records I own but still quite impressed with the quality!

                  2022 release: like many of us this was on my grail list for a long time and I’m so happy to have it. Totally worth the wait and it sounds incredible. Packaging is also top notch with amazing art and tons of extras. Everything from good inner sleeves to an incredible quality box and book. Get them while you can because I am positive that he’s war go right back to being impossible to find and super expensive again.

                    Just got the 2022 version of this from BAM…WITH a 20% teacher discount! Ended up being like $98 total. I’ve wanted a good version of this and I’ve been holding out for awhile. Glad I did! I totally lucked out getting one. I didn’t even know this was released, then suddenly I was clutching the record as i read about the glowing reviews and recent back ordered status. Onto the review. This was released with the intent of finally delivering this album with all the quality and goodies it deserves. Success! Everything is top notch. Dead silent after a clean (I always clean new vinyl with a project audio vac + tm-8 cleaner) and great mastering for a cd-era heavily distorted guitar album. Sounds it’s best on this release. Grab one asap. This is the one record that wasn’t represented well in the vinyl world and didn’t have a really great release…until now!

                      So the differences I'm seeing with the 2012 vs the 2022 are first off, the dead wax on the new 2022 release is wider. The 2012 has little to no dead wax and it is almost impossible to read the numbers in the little sliver of dead wax. The 2022 number however is 7855 31-D2 (this is off side D). The 2012 is 509999 7255316 - Disc2-B (this is off side D of the 2012). The 2022 is noticeably cleaner sounding than my 2012. The 2022 is from a completely different stamper than the 2012 - all of the vinyl disks. All numbers are different on the vinyl while the hype sticker and labels all have the same catalog number (509999785316). The 2022 is superior for sure. Sounds AMAZING. 2022 needs its own listing. ALSO: if you notice, all of the 2022 releases have covers that have more of a blue tint. The 2012 all have green tint.
