This record really sounds amazing! A nice thick gatefold sleeve and a record free of visible or audible defects. A great alternative to those not wanting to shell out the money for a clean original copy or one of the more expensive 2xLP reissues.

So, I just ripped the LP into audacity and gave an attentive listen with uh... let's say enhanced senses. There are occasional drops in the left channel. And they're not so much drops as they are a small bit where the higher end is not as clear. Definitely noticeable at a loudish volume on headphones. Playing over speakers not at all. Overall, the remaster sounds really great. Much more clarity and easier distinction of the instrumentation and vocals. I'm entirely impressed with this remaster.

Two neat things: 1. The great Pretender ends in a lock groove, so those 'crickets' can go on as long as you like. I took great delight in letting it go until my son went slightly insane and begged me to stop it. Heh heh. 2. there is a small bit of a radio being 'tuned in' before China My China. I can't remember if that was on my EG pressing (long gone now) but it's not on the Astralwerks remaster, so that's cool too.

Best sounding Eno ever!
I am totally surprised how much the sound improved, the broadness of the "stage" doubled!
This is the pressing to have, definitely.

just sent my copy back as it had intermittent drops in level on the left channel, which was really annoying. Anyone else? a bad batch or are they all like this?

Taking Tiger Mountain (By Strategy) is a loose concept album with topics ranging from espionage to the Chinese Communist revolution. One of Brian Eno's best songs kicks off Taking Tiger Mountain (By Strategy) - the lovely "Burning Airlines Gives You So Much More", with a gorgeous post-Beatles melody and snaky harmonized guitar (an Eno trademark, often played by Robert Fripp on these releases). From there on out, the album expands upon the ideas that began with Here Come The Warm Jets. Slightly more introspective. It's also less sneering. Of course, Bauhaus resonated with Eno's idea of absurdist / glam / experimental pop, later covering this album's sixth song "Third Uncle." Really, this often sounds like Chairs Missing era Wire in spots, and we all know that's a good thing!

My copy of this release has a Gatefold Sleeve and has no Embossed PRS Hannover logo on backcover.
The rest is the same.
Why is this a reissue? Tell me.
