Why doesn't the info on the top say that this is a club issue?
Not-the-Same
Disappointing press but a great album and at the time they were at the true peak. This album is a game changer.
Andromakus
Beautiful... just Beautiful an awsome sound from this RP.... love the feel of the matt finish cover
Ginaun
2016 remaster is excellent. The packaging is beautifully made and has a matt texture. The mastering is rich and full and the pressing is lovely and free of any clicks and pops. (I had to return a first one as it had a jump at the end of the first track on side 1).
Jugore
Can’t agree with the below comments more... amazing pressing, audiophile grade, flat and with no surface noise. Wide soundstage, well balanced low end with attack and speed. Vocals fill the room and the synths are so digital that contrast the rest analogue sound with ease. Well done Sony once again.
Dangerous
One of the best pressings in my collection. Absolutely flawless, sounds phenomenal.
Kalrajas
I agree with the previous reviews. Flawless, total clean pressing and yes Personal Jesus is the Full Version.
Jozrone
Contains the full version of Personal Jesus unlike the original US and UK vinyls.
Whitesmasher
Great quality, sounds similar to first UK releases. Strangely, my copy has the same matrix as this 2017 release, but it also has "Legacy" trademark on the label, similarly as the 2016 release ( https://www.discogs.com/Depeche-Mode-Violator/release/9180652 ), which this release does not have. However, the back cover is exactly as in this 2017 release, i.e. there is no "Legacy" trademark.
Redfury
Yea I got same back cover/label discrepancy but matrix matches this release. Purchased in US but obviously imported. Regardless, like others have said, superb pressing.
Dddasuk
Just opened a shrink wrapped copy delivered from the UK. Same situation here.
Lcena
That is indeed possible. My purchase was done in Poland.
Isha
Same here. Logos on label are Mute, Legacy and Sony, but no Legacy Vinyl hype sticker. No Legacy logo on backside of the cover. So there definetely is a variation, but matrix runouts are exactly as stated here, as is barcode. Purchased mine in France, maybe the labels are printed differently in various european countries or the french ones are produced in a different pressing plant.
interactive man
Superb remastering, one of the greatest albums just got better
Gri
Is that 180gram vinyl? Just had it inmy hands but nothing was mentioned and the original I got already. If it's 180gram and gatefold I could get weak...
Dorintrius
A flawless RP. So clean. Wish all my LPs sounded this good. The depth and clarity is exceptional. I use this album to show the skeptics why i love vinyl.

I second this. Fantastic pressing. Dead quiet vinyl and totally flat.
