|Additional info||Rare 1999 US Roadrunner label 14-track limited edition clear green vinyl LP - the limited 2nd issue of raw, powerful and uncompromising Des Moines, Iowa, nu metallists debut album - featuring 'Me Inside' instead of 'Purity' and "Frail Limb Nursery" which was removed over allegations of copyright infringement - featuring the singles 'Wait and Bleed' and 'Spit It Out'.|
Reviewing for AllMusic, Rick Anderson wrote "You thought Limp Bizkit was hard... They're The Osmonds. These guys are something else entirely. And it's pretty impressive." Rolling Stone stated that Slipknot is "metal with a capital m", and Q magazine included the album in their list "50 Heaviest Albums of All Time". The album was also included in the book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die by Robert Dimery.
Vinyl has red and white printed black labels with top thorned 'S' logo and lower red boxed Road Runner and white boxed This Is An I Am Recording logos - red title print below center hole - otherwise white printing including rimprint.
Vinyl is housed in an illustrated lyric inner sleeve - ultimately in a very slightly glossy finish picture cover.
Condition: M- (Vinyl and Labels)/VG++ (Inner Sleeve)/VG+(+) (Cover):
Vinyl is in faboulous condition - superbright and without signs of handling or play - plain mint. Labels have no indications of play either - smaller tears in the left side of the Side 1 label which are to be contributed to the manufacturing process. These have not been partb of the grading.
Vinyl is overall graded mint.
Inner sleeve is absurdly close to mint - hardly any vinyl impression.
Cover has a mild top opening bend inflicting a slight back wrinkle... a few tiny spots of wear along top and bottom back seam. Front and bacj cover centers are otherwise extremely nice.
Seams are intact... a very marginal lower spine corner dent... hardly any rubbing to edges or corners - graded very upper VG´+.
