Mine have MPO logo on runout and no stickers in it. Maybe another repress ?

Pressing is really neat in mine, wonderful album from two geniuses

Generally a decent pressing as the music itself sounds fantastic but there is a fair bit of surface noise on all sides besides side one which oddly sounds clean as a whistle.
Well worth owning on vinyl as its one of the best Electronic albums ever.

My pressing sounds absolutely fantastic, could be that I smoked, but irrespective, if the question is, 'does this LP get old?','the answer is, 'no, no it doesn't,'...unfortunately, I do.

this pressing is actually fantastic for me, doesn't have much surface noise and all the synths, drums, bass, everything shines through perfectly!

My copy of this release is on moderately warped vinyl that doesn't affect playback. The vinyl is also surface noisy throughout, but may quiet with cleaning. The soundstage is very big with great separation. Lows are thick and mid-bass is punchy. Mids and highs are detailed. The overall tone is warm. Aside from a few interesting stereo effects, this album is definitely ambient. Just a cool record to have on in the background. Just my opinion though. Worth owning for sure.

My "Pete Standing Alone" track sounds really odd, really distorted and weird. The rest is fine though, any one else have similar problems?


July 1, 2014
Does anyone else's copy have quite bad surface noise?

Interestingly, the tempo of Telephasic Workshop causes the groove to almost line up, and it has a swirling pattern on side A. Looks really cool when it's spinning on a turntable.

Reissue sounds great. Comes in plastic sleeves. What an differences with some of the other reissues whose are terrible ! Beware of Campfire headphase, twoism (my experience)!
