Received this from a seller who mistook it for a '98 repress; I was bummed initially, but this is probably one of the best unofficial pressings out there. It's up there w/ my u/o copy of "Songs for the Deaf!" The sound could very well be hit or miss, but other than side D being slightly poppy, I think it sounds marvelous! Unsure of the source, but it's surprisingly lush & dynamic. Fitting 3 discs into a double gatefold sleeve is a bit awkward (whole release issue?), but the packaging is exceptionally convincing if it weren't for the lack of numbers/white space in corner; even the booklet appears to be first-rate. If you come across this for a reasonable price, don't pass it up!

Side A,B,D (noise) Side C, E and F, (perfect sound) have you the same problem ?....... this edition is interesting because there are Twoo inedit songs (not in the official reissue). I am happy because on the reissue, there is not the official cover... ¨Normal price for this bootleg (55 euros)

it's like a bootleg, it's not an official repress. Don't waist your money on this.

Very nice and solid packaging/booklet. I never had the chance to hold an original pressing in my hands so I can't compare both, but the quality looks better than many other bands official releases. Great job, it doesn't look like a bootleg.

The order of the songs is as announced on this page and is like the original vinyl pressing, with the two bonus tracks, which is for me the ultimate edition, as it seems more coherent with the concept of the album.
If you prefer the CD order (28 tracks), check the 2012 official vinyl reissue boxset.

Also, I was worried about the sound quality after reading the reviews... And it's another great surprise : the sound is VERY good.
It's worth the 50 euros I paid, I'm more happy to own this edition than the last reissue (which look beautiful tough).
Nothing wrong, and yet I am picky.

10/10

I had three pieces of this edition.
All three pieces have occasional creaking during listening.

Great packaging with a nice booklet.
The order of the songs is not as announced and not the good one either.
Very poor sound quality. Bad repress.

Packaging is absolutely great and the sound is good but very quiet. In my copy though, a have a problem at the beginning of the B side. "Jellybelly" sounds pretty bad, without brightness and without treble, but it's fixed suddenly some seconds into "Bodies". Of course it sucks that one song and a bit of another one sound bad but for the 50 euros i paid i think it is still worth it, it sounds great and the packaging, the booklet and the sleeves look just perfect and new. Apart for that problem, a great counterfeit and a great alternative for ultra-expensive original ones or the horrible 4LP reissue.

The sound quality is not good. I pay less for 2015 official repress is better.
