This is a beautiful US Promo Original with a hype sticker on the front, complete with the original inner sleeve. It's probably the nicest copy I've found out in the bins and it plays beautifully.
The UK originals can take the sound even further, but they are tough to find clean. This one still delivers quite nicely -- it's big and punchy, which is what I look for on this album. It's an all-time classic that's inspired so much of the music that followed it. 5 stars on Allmusic: "Subversive records of any ilk don't get any stronger, influential, or more exciting than this."
Vinyl: VG+ (very clean, one small superficial mark on side two)
Cover: VG+ (nice, light wear)
Play notes: A beautiful copy that plays well and sounds good
