    So according to release pages, side C of unnumbered version is a different matrix variant from numbered copies? Can someone who have both confirm this? So I guess this side sounds different on both?

          Yes, this is the original pressing with the alternate running order, possibly the most sought-after 90s rock record to have, and that's wonderful. Fortunately, I own this record, but I also have the 2012 remastered vinyl boxset.

          In terms of sound quality, it's immediately clear that the remaster is your best choice for far less money. It contains much more detail, has more impact (those drums and guitars sound real!), the better balance, has the clarity and simply rocks! The original 3LP is a muddy sounding record. The 4LP has more vinyl to work with, and that’s just far more dynamic range, deeper low end frequencies and better high end frequencies.

          There is just no argument audiowise to prefer the original over the 4LP remaster.

            Anyone have a copy that’s still in the original shrink wrap that they would sell?

              Finally dropped some big bucks on a NM original ‘96, numbered copy. The sound is totally mind-blowing, with a depth and clarity to each individual instrument that’s true to the analog sound.
              I can’t speak for any of the other repress/remasters but this one has me naturally high, eyes closed, immersed in the beauty of this album after spending a couple decades listening to it on MP3/CD/FLAC.

                I bought mine on the day of release and it is... Unnumbered!
                I even kept the advertisement for it as a kind of proof that I bought it the day I did!
                On the whole, after all the repressed versions of the mid/late 1990's, I discovered that Virgin were responsible for pressing up to, if not over, 25000 copies. And yes, the unnumbered and ≤5000 are THE ones to collect, should you be wanting to!

                    Will there be a vinyl re-pressing? An official one, not a badly mixed bootleg. I hope so much.
