I own this 10" but my copy is a little noisy on the intros and outros so I bought a FLAC copy from Casino Versus Japan's Bandcamp (it's only $2!). The FLAC files sound like the 10" would if you played it at 33 ⅓ which is interesting because as long as I've had this 10" I've always played it at 45. Likewise, this 10" is listed at playing at 45 here on Discogs which makes me think most people who own this likely play it at 45 as well.

I've tried to listen to these tracks at the 33 ⅓ speed but I just can't get into them. It seems too slow after many years of listening at 45 so I ended up speeding them up using Audacity.

If you're looking to do the same simply load the FLACs into Audacity. Choose Effect > Change Speed... Then enter 11.900 as the value for Percent Change (don't use the Standard Vinyl rpm settings - they won't work for these files). Then export your files in whatever format you like.

One of my favorites. Both sides excellent cuts of early 2000s IDM

Mmm, this melts my mind...
Not sure if it's supposed to be spun at 33 or 45, sounds great at both. I prefer Hotknives at 33 and Rouge at 45. Both sound like what you would expect from Casino vs. Japan, rich layers of sound with intermingling soft synthy melodies. Definitely more laid back then Go Hawaii or Whole Numbers Play The Basics. This is a great trip.
