Previous reviewers have very correctly pointed out the terrible sound quality of this picture disc, and they are very correct. I Love color vinyl, picture discs etc, but yea besides looking pretty, the sound of this pressing is , blah! like some hot mamas out there, maybe a joy to look at, but hell to deal with .
Having said that, It is a classic, time setting epic anthem album. I caught the original wave of rave and jungle and all that, and to be there, live, watching these gents rockin' out with their 808s', It was awesome. The tracks and the style might actually educate many of todays new generation of neo-rave-revivalists, I think their is lots of joy and humor in this music lacking in today's electronic snobby/celebrity/scenester era. I think even rave itself was already a few steps removed from the deeper electro pioneers, but yea compared to today this sound is pure. Altern 8 still had krafwerk and transmat intheir DNA, as it says in their liner notes for the album .

The classic Altern 8 album, only on an awesome looking picture disc!

This can go for a lot of money on various auction sites, but be warned.

The sound quality on this pressing is completely, totally, unusable. I know people can be fussy about sound quality, but if you know what picture discs usually sound like then you'll have some idea what this is going to be like.

You are advised to buy the album on plain black vinyl, or even better just collect the 12" singles. Even the black vinyl sound quality isn't all that great due to the compression of having around six 5 minutes+ tracks on each side.

It IS a record to collect for any self respecting Altern 8 fan, but only to be used as a cool wall decoration to show off to your mates.

Don't even think of dropping it in the mix.
