EDIT:
I purchased the reissue of this record on vinyl, and I gotta say that this record went from a 92 to a perfect metal record and what I'd call a modern classic in the genre. Disregarding all of the bonus tracks that came with it, Pink was one of the best metal and musical experiences I've ever had. The tracks are extended, noisier, and are a lot prettier. Tracks like Psuedo Bread, My Machine, Farewell, and Just Abandoned Myself are all tracks which prove that you shouldn't be passing this ... read more
