This Volcano reissue uses a sleeve that still contains the Zoo logo. The label says Volcano and Tool Dissectional.
Because of that, the old Zoo Category of 72445-11052-1-RE is in small print on the back, however, the vinyl contains the new Category.

Not to be confused with later pressing Tool - Undertow which contains the exact same disc in a new sleeve altogether.

This pressing does not contain printed inner sleeves or labels and has a Parental Advisory "EXPLICIT CONTENT" sticker on the front of the vinyl jacket.

Also exists other releases of this album (Tool - Undertow and Tool - Undertow) with parental advisory "EXPLICIT LYRICS" sticker.

CAVEAT EMPTOR... these Tool bootlegs made their way into my hands via a family member who didn't know any better. Here's the biggest stinger of this bootleg, it's not even Undertow, at least the one I ended up with. It's a rip of Opiate. If "real" Undertow pressings of this exist or not I'm not sure. Since I have the actual re-release of Opiate I can say it's pretty spot on for a bootleg, but you can just purchase the real deal of both Opiate and Undertow and feel much better about your purchases.
No sound issues with this record, but I wish the packaging was at least wider, if not gatefold. The two discs are cramped in there!
I ordered this from JB hifI and was a bit disappointed not to see a printed inner sleeve with any info like the CD does. Vinyl sounds amazing though.
To add, the deadwax has 11052 instead of 31052, but it has A1 B1 C1 D1 on the trailing end of the markings, as is shown here. Sounds like heaven either way. Love it. Just looking for info.
I bought this album with the same deadwax etchings, but the album labels don't match here. Mine have the original graphics. What gives?
same here! i think we have a version that isn't on here yet. same etchings, original labels, generic inner sleeves
