A very average vinyl reissue. I picked it up a very nice price, so I have no real regrets, but I would not recommend paying the prices for it I have seen some places selling it for. Pressed at GZ and one of their average efforts, not the great work they have done on some other things. No info on mastering or sources at all, I'm guessing this just used 16/44 files as the source. I'm guessing most of these "Radiation Reissues" are like this, no matter the band/album.

Now, compared to my Midnight Music pressing of "Mirror Test" this sounds comparatively thin and closed in, and that is NOT how an album like this should sound. It's acceptable, but nothing amazing and not really an improvement over the CD reissues of the albums. If you can't find old Midnight Music pressings of these SLAG albums on vinyl, my recommendation is to simply buy the Cherry Red CD reissues. They did a nice job on those, and they all have bonus tracks from singles and EPs which can be challenging to track down in the wild. Sure, Mirror Test has been remixed by the band but if you want the original mix you can buy a FLAC version from the Pono Store and some other digital outlets.

True music masterpiece, surely one of the best Wave albums together with "Epic Garden Music".
