I have the clear vinyl edition of this good album which has great sound and is one of Eno's best imo. Unfortunately, the vinyl is noisy on side one. Because I like this album, I bought a black vinyl copy and luckily this one does not have a noisy side one. In fact, the whole album plays noiselessly and beautifully. Theoretically, clear virgin vinyl should give the best sound as there are no colour additives, often full of magnetic particles, to muddy the sound, add static etc. However, this theoretical advantage remains just that, theoretical, if the pressing is problematic in any way. In this case, even though the sound is more transparent, ahem, on the clear vinyl edition, it is scotched by the noisy pressing.

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.

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 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?
