Not groundbreaking in any way, but for those liking AFX it is a worthwhile purchase.

So, as this is a limited version, except the fact that many of these pressings have surface noise, does this silver foil sleeve bring anything more than the regular pressing ? What's the purpose of this aluminium paper bag ? It looks like a marketing joke as "hi collectors, why don't you pay more for this silver bag and get a worse sound"...

My copy does have the crackling on the right channel, but it is incredibly minor and only seems to be on side two. other than that, this is a pretty good sounding record.

I got a noisy copy of this ep as the LTD edition from a local record store, so I emailed Warp about getting a new one (along with a receipt and straight from the line-out on my tt recordings) and I finally got around to unwrapping the replacement record, and giving it a play. From a record noise front, I'll report that it is indeed better, but there's still a few audible cracks here and there in a fresh copy of this. While it's still a little disappointing that this pressing still has some noise, it is MUCH MUCH better. I'm not sure if later pressing of the ltd edition are still affected by this or not, or if it's only regular pressings, but it seems Warp has ironed out whatever kinks that led to that surface noise.

Weird my back sticker is randomly upside down, yet on my other copy it's the other way around. :/

Terrible pressing, unlistenable really. Why do I persist with vinyl? I must be a masochist.

Have the limited Version, i got three Vinyls sent after complaining, all with the same defect on the right channel.
There must be something wrong with the pressing. Cant use it this way...

I bought this Ltd vinyl pressing and the cassette. Both sound fantastic. This is one of his best works, it blew my mind on first listen. I agree that track 5 should've been included on this vinyl pressing. There is also a sixth track "t69 collapse [durichroma]" which is only available for download on aphextwin.warp.net , if you purchase the EP on Bleep you'll only get 5 tracks.

Never a dull moment here. THe only thing that is missing is the 5th track that ends the whole thing. It should have been included on the vinyl pressing. Maybe a "grower" for some folks and others might hate it but just don't get tired with it .
