I own both the U.S. and Australia pressings (and the EU. one as well). Apart from the colors the U.S. and Australia pressings are identical. Pressed from the same stampers at GZ Media in CZ. Therefore both sound the same. If at all you would need to go ... See full review

Does this version have the Christopher Walken clips in Jet Black?

Yes, that Annie Hall sample is included.

The mastering is lifeless and flat, it is lacking depth & bass. It is missing the punch, power and volume this album would have deserved. It was cut at a too low volume level. Side B still has plenty of dead wax which could have been used to gain volume, ... See full review

Clearly it's a double submission. There's only one UK release out there. They should be merged immediately !

Not true. Different printed barcodes on jackets which make them unique submissions:

Great sound and good pressing EXCEPT crackling on the first few minutes of first track on side four "To live is to die". Vinyl quality of that track is not as good as the other tracks unfortunately. Maybe the stamper was worn out at some point so not all ... See full review

I'm not really happy with the pressing quality. It was pressed by Optimal Media GmbH. First copy I received had non-fill and stitching on sides A & D. Replacement copy also has non-fill on side D with surface marks on all sides. The other three sides could be ... See full review

Can you give runout info, please? So we can identify where it was pressed? Does it have a circled U like ⓤ? Thank you!

First EU copy I received had quite a few non-fill patches on side A only. Optimal Media GmbH seems to be having issues with that from time to time. The replacement copy I requested does not have non-fill patches anymore but side A is still somewhat ... See full review

How is the sound of your copy, please? I have the EU Loser edition on black vinyl which was cut & pressed elsewhere. The sound is kinda distorted - and I don't mean good distortion!
posted a review of Hot Snakes - Jericho Sirens. 11 months ago
My copy sounds distorted. Anybody else with similar issues? I don't think it's a good cut/pressing. Usually Optimal Media delivers good quality. Not in this case surprisingly.

Very dynamic, not like the compressed and brickwalled remastered 20th anniversary edition. Very quiet and centered pressing. Highly recommended!

This is highly speculative:
I have other Epitaph original pressings from the 1990s which all have a rough, textured cover. It might be the first pressing of this album had such a cover, too. Another speculation would be the appearance of the barcode ... See full review

Different center label means a new submission on Discogs usually. I think you should submit it to the database. It is very interested to know if it has the same matrix in the runout groove? Thank you!

To the people who are complaining about the censored version:
Are you sure you have the matrix codes "4904861 92551E" anywhere in the run out grooves as what this submission is for? My copy has the censored track titles on the back but the lyrics in fact ... See full review

Isn't the mint green one the green one for the indies? Many shops and webstores are listing the indie one as being mint green...

Which matrix code do you have, please? Particularly the part of the question mark: "163521E2/?". It really could make a difference that yours was pressed from a defective stamper.

Yes, this red U.S. release on Ipecac includes the English version of "Gonna Leave You".

Not true. Only the US deluxe was pressed by Pallas. There is also a Deluxe which was pressed by Optimal. So not "ALL" were pressed by Pallas. Check the different hype stickers and especially the matrix info closely. Thank you!
