I can't bring myself to buy this because, damnit, they should have broken it out to 2 LPs -or- cut one song. It's just wrong that Side 2 starts with "Gangster" which is probably the weakest song on this. When listening to this on CD, back in the early '90s, it always made sense to me that you transitioned into the second half of the album with "Soviet" (sort of the intermission) before dropping back into the fantastic "Get The Message"... I'd always skip "Gangster" and move on the the rest of the CD. But on vinyl, there is the offending track, at the start of Side 2, getting in the way. “Soviet” should be at the end of a side, with “Get The Message” starting the next side. Come on, guys! It should be four sides, like so:
Disc 1A: 1. Idiot Country, 2. Reality, 3. Tighten Up
Disc 1B: 1. The Patience Of A Saint, 2. Getting Away With It, 3. Gangster, 4. Soviet
Disc 2A: 1. Get The Message, 2. Try All You Want, 3. Some Distant Memory, 4. Feel Every Beat
Disc 2B: either blank with etched artwork, -OR- add some bonus tracks that the CD had (remastered for vinyl of course!) such as: Free Will (Edit), Getting Away With It (instrumental), 3. Turning Point (Edit)

OR if it has to fit on two sides, why not match the cassette tracklist: Gangster ends side 1, Soviet opens side 2!

If they added "Disappointed" as Track 1 on side 2 it would be perfect.

Yes, great album, sounds really good. 2 copies from amazon - both warped, one worse than the other. both play fine but it's a big warp affecting side a. If you have a light tracking force you may skip.

Very clean vinyl (sound and looks). It's got to be digital, but you'd never know upon listening to it. It's worth the twenty.

I gave this another listen and can honestly say this is one hell of pressing! I said above that it is digital, but my ears can't believe it is.

Fantastic new pressing of a classic album - sound really is amazing on 180GM vinyl. Lovely sleeve design too - highly recommended if you are a fan of the original release.

Thrilled to see this album reissued on vinyl, long overdue in fact. The sound quality and packaging is flawless. Weighty vinyl in beautiful matte inner/outer sleeves. Synths, guitars and vocals sound brand new. A+
