    Having a hard time discerning which vinyl copy I have. I purchased it sometime in 2015/2016 for a fact and the runouts closely match the 180 gram 2013 release, but those variants have Roman numerals and mine do not. I weighed the vinyl and they come in approximately 180 grams. I'm wondering if I should add my variant to the 2013 release even though the runouts closely match the 2020 release, but then again, I didn't buy it then, those variants don't have the United pressing "u" etching, and aren't 180 gram. Aside from that, the jacket sleeve I have is very thick and my release also came with a download card. If anyone has any info, it would be greatly appreciated!

      So the 2022 reissue is a new cut? Has anyone received yet to comment on the sibilance issues?

        This album is dead quiet and plays fantastic, wow! Great pressing, worth the money.

          Repress appears to be coming in January for those that don't wanna pay top price on here.

            My copy has a different matrix/runout on side A:

              Not a bad track on it, one of the greatest albums of all time.

                Minus the promo version, is this the only pressing V2 ever did of this album?

                  I own a mispress of the vinyl album:
                  the label side 3 is the label side A.
                  That makes: AB / AD
                  Does anyone have this mispress?
                  • stephane38's avatar
                    Excuse my English, I have a copy with a central label error on the side 3 is the label side A but good burning to disc.
                    And you ?

                      Fantastic album and piece of vinyl. Great quality sound, not sure how good the other ones are. I bought mine at a little bit above the CD price years ago, can't believe it's worth over $50 now... Pick it up if ya can- just not from me!
