I have the clear vinyl edition of this good album. Unfortunately, the vinyl is noisy on side one. Anyone else's like this, or is it just my copy?

Sounds amazing. I really love this record. Fantastic pictures on the gatefold, all taken by Eno, including the cover. The record sleeves are Eno's selfies of his shadows. Not a huge fan of the lithographs though, they look like they were made in MS paint, haha. The D-side looks like a piece of art, the label is Eno walking on a rocky beach. Very poignant inscription "to dawn" on the second LP's sleeve, "dawn" was the last alias David Bowie used in his last e-mail to Eno a few weeks before his passing.

This page implies that "Fickle Sun" "The Hour Is Thin" and "I'm Set Free" are all one track, but that's false. The album has 4 tracks, not 2.

I'm a bit stunned about the title track. At 9:37, there's a 2nd track running very quiet, but definitely audible in the background and disappears at 9:44 after Eno's voice comes in. It makes absolutely no sense to me, especially when I hear the lyrics.
And this is apparent in the CD and the digital versions of the song (vinyl too, I think).
At 12:24, I hear a quiet male voice (of a documentary or radio), but it sounds more harmonic than the random latin-esque track (correct me if I'm wrong) that came earlier.

This seems to be intentional by Eno and Warp respectively. But right now, it affects my listening experience. It's an ambient track and I don't want to hear random beats fading in and out.

phenomenal pressing. superbly mastered. one of the best sounding records I think I've ever heard - everything is just so clear, tonally rich, Eno's voice feels like he is in your room. great record too....one of my favourites of his recent releases.

Should this really be a double LP? There doesn't feel like there is enough music to justify that.

What kind of download (i.e. MP3/WAV/FLAC/16/24 bit) do you get here?

Does anyone know, if the 8-page booklet contains the lyrics?
