Noticed a few pressing nasties in mine along the way. Sound quality was great apart from that though.

Can we get a clean copy of the cover art for this release?

EDIT: Did it myself.

Ok, the packaging is not incredible but this pressing sounds very fine. Isn’t it the most important ?

Since my original comment has been removed for some reason, I'm going to reiterate. The inner sleeves are ridiculous. I had to surgically remove the records by cutting the sleeves open with scissors, due to static. The jacket is paper thin. One of the records was warped. NOT IMPRESSED. The only redeeming feature is the sound quality.

This pressing, compared to others I own, has deeper bass but also some background pops on every tracks and the loudness is often too strong (just decreased it and the listening is more confortable). Each track has been equalized regarding other ones on the same way, so the whole album feels coherent and more dancefloor oriented. Therefore it's wrong to say that this pressing is the best sounding one as this kind of mastering can't please to anyone, especially if you're used to earliest copies (it's basically an ambiant album). This release is just another way to experience this amazing album. As the original recording of the album was probably "chaotic", leading to fluctuant qualities of masterings even among tracks themselves, I think it's very hard to find the perfect copy (which probably doesn't exist). This is why I've decided to keep different ones and suggest to every real fans of this album to do it too. "We are the music listeners, and we, are the dreamers" ;)

better than the 2013 version - or just a carbon copy?

Listening to this, Substrata by Biosphere and Harmony In Ultraviolet by Tim Hecker is an experience, not only because of the exceptional side of Ambient/Ambient Techno music they show to us, but also for their noteworthiness, their substance and their value to the world of music. In fact it's not easy to listen to a similar record and appreciate it, but that only holds for poor ears who can't hear the greatness of the sound we're here about. I already know other albums and i yet have to find others, i'm happy to have encountered such masterpiece on my way to collect all the music i love in my life, and i can't wait to get my hands on a copy of this.
All the tracks are somewhat strange, but that's only the surface that hides the beauty, and expecially Xtal is a stand out for me, even more as an opening track. The others are great as well and compose a good follow-up (Hedphelym and Actium among the others). Highly recommended album, along with its hystorical importance and musical value intended as a form of insight and expression.

Technically this edition is misnamed now. The song missing from this Russian edition ("i") is the only 1985 track. Selected Ambient Works 86-92 doesn't have the same ring to it though.

I'm about to use the infamous word here - overrated.
There are a few highlights on this album (Tha, Schottkey 7th Path), but the overall impression of this collection is that RDJ was still learning the craft and developing his unique style, which he would present in "SAW 2" and later. There are a few hints of his future style here and there, but nothing that would truly make this album live to its hype. Most of the tracks just follow the acid house formula, which was so popular at that time, with some reverb effect applied (is that where the "ambient" adjective is supposed to come from?). It simply hasn't aged that well.
