This is a domestic original Capitol pressing (mastered at Artisan) in gorgeous condition, complete with the lyric inner. I don't listen to a ton of '80s thrash any more, but I certainly grew up on the stuff and can't help but keep an eye out for it. You almost never see original copies of classic albums like this in such nice shape. I was a metal kid and no one needs to explain to me why most copies out there are beat! This one plays really quietly and sounds quite good. I don't have a ton around to compare but it's hard to imagine one doing a much better job.
Vinyl: EX (wow)
Cover: VG+ (strong)
Play notes: An unusually clean copy that sounds right
