    The questions are:
    1. Why was the cover changed in this issue?
    2. Why is the vinyl packed in a paper sleeves that electrifies and scratches your vinyl?
    3. Why is the German edition 2-3 more expensive than the English one?
    3 cons.

    1 plus for quality, sound and clear & crisp.

        It is absolutely perfect. Sound quality is excellent. This is how good new vinyl can sound. I do not care if it is not AAA as long as the result sounds right. Wow. [ Playing this using an Ortofon 2M Black cartridge ]

          Very clear and crisp sound. The mastering is perfect and I highly reccomend anyone to get a hold of this pressing.

            The release politics of Kraftwerk / Parlophone / EMI is very strange. This release here has the same inner sleeve but not glossy as the release of http://www.discogs.com/Kraftwerk-Die-MenschMaschine/release/1978385. It's slightly rough and not glossy.
            Not easy to find the right release.
