The Matrix

Side 1 “8460551 A-1U-1-1” (“A-1U” Only 1st UK Press)
Side 2 “8460551 B-1U-1-1” (“B-1U” Only 1st press)

The Vinyl

On visual inspection this looks superb in my opinion. Any marks that could possibly be seen angled to the light would be sleeve removal type/scuffs only. The vinyl lays perfectly flat on the turntable and is free of any warping. Importantly, there are no visual marks/scratches that would cause any loud constant clicks/ticks or pops during the play of this vinyl.

The Audio Quality

I have play tested the vinyl two times on two different turntables/systems at very loud volume prior to this listing. Once for you to hear the complete album. (Can be heard in the player above)
The moment that the needle hits the playing surface it is obvious to me that this has barely ever been played and certainly not overplayed at all. Crystal clear and vibrant stunning top audio throughout the play of this vinyl. I would grade the audio at Very Near Mint!

The Labels

These are the original 1st UK issue Vertigo labels minimal spider marks can be seen angled to the light only in my opinion. There is little if no spindle wear the hole is perfectly round. Looks barely played in my opinion!

The Record Sleeve/lyric/picture inner

This is the original card picture/lyric record sleeve. This is straight and very clean. There are no edge splits or tears. The vinyl is always stored separately from the vinyl. This is how I have always stored my records.

The Cover

This is the original 1st UK issue Un laminated cover. Super clean and straight. No nasty creases to report and any storage wear is only really noticed if looked for in my opinion. Minor indents noted only really noticed if looked for in my opinion. The spine has absolutely no rubbing. Rich and very vibrant colours. Being primarily black in color these are often seen in a terrible state but this copy is exceptional in my opinion. I would grade this cover at least better than excellent in my opinion.
