    Overall, a very nice pressing. But yes, the vinyl is definitely on the clear side of the "Clear and Black Swirl" description. I don't hate the appearance but it does make it hard to discern what is a swirl from an unwanted smudge, hair, lint, etc.

    Audio-wise, it sounds great. Good separation in the mix. Cut well with no noise. All-in-all, balanced and pleasing to these old ears but still raw. And that is something to say about the album that birthed punk.

      Agree with others on this - sound is fantastic - noise is minimal - I didn't even notice a side had finished, the background was so quiet. And it is colored vinyl too! Wish more modern pressings were like this.

        Beautiful pressing. Nice and clear, deep lows, crisp highs. V ery pleased with this pressing

          STUNNED at how good this record sounds! My licorice pizza is also mostly clear with black swirl.

            Sounds great but it might as well be labeled as just a clear variant.

              I'm usually very wary of color pressings but just wait until We Will Fall hits. Really clear and deep. Hits hard.

                Love it, I like the clear design a lot compare to other comment, it's unique and fits with the band dark age

                  My copy look and sound very good, it's definitely more clear than on the picture and it look beautiful to me, just enjoy it

                    I really dont go for coloured vinyl as I dont see the point but I picked this up for 15 euro not expecting was I wrong as the pressing was excellent . Treble and bass are next level and I was so happy I got a big bag of cans and got pissed....missed work the next day and my neighbours hate me. God I'm so rock and roll.

                      I have a copy with the latest date of 2016 on it but it's not found on the discogs list of releases. It would be most similar to this one but non colored and the barcode I just can't find a match on. Mine says 081227979430. Anyone got any insight on this one. It's also similar to the 2010 US 180g. But that has a hype sticker and this doesn't, and has a repress date of 2016 on it so it can't be that one. Anyone have any insight on this print?
