I just received the so called re-release 2012, The disc says released 2003. I don't think its any different from the original release.

So it must be a new pressing of the 2003 version indeed, just a re-release.

It is a good thing record companies start releasing again references that have gone out of stock.

That was recently the case for "A Question of Balance" by The Moody Blues, I look forward seeing other great titles being produced again soon.

The only difference I see is the new pressing has a CD layer and the SACD layer. I don't have the original so not sure if the sound is the same. Sounds OK to me.

The 2003 release was also a Hybrid-SACD with CD layer. So no change on that side. But I wonder if they will release the other Police SACD as well (you can't preorder Regatta for example yet).
And, which is also quite strange, there seems to be no information about this re-release on any side of A&M or Universal or whatsoever. It is just appearing. Maybe they found some spare stock somewhere in a forgotten storehouse in North-Alabama and throw it now on the market.

If these drives are available primarily in the U.S. and they are different from Japanese pressings that would mean they are pressed in the U.S. and that the plant is again a function which would open the door to other editions? Can anyone confirm?

This is all it says from Amazon: Import hybrid-SACD pressing. Features DSD remastering. Digitally remastered edition of the 1980 album
