  1. Be aware that there have been a few bootlegs pressed by GZ Media and at least another two official reissues or represses of X Rated in 2000 pressed by Optimal Media — one was recut by MK, another one seemed to later have Side B recut by HL. This 2014 reissue have both sides recut by HL pressed by Optimal Media. The dynamics are excellent and the drums kick hard with hefty weight when it’s called for.
