As I have recently copped the remaster of this album (i've had the CD version laying around for a good years but have noted it having a influence on a lot of my earlier musical outputs) this is definitely one of DHR's most ambitious releases that doesn't sound like anything before or after released on this label, as back in 1996 with the likes of ATR appearing on MTV and getting exposure thanks to Grand Royal among the others such as Sonic Subjunkies, Patric Catani and Bomb 20 leading the pre foetal esscence of breakcore music, this "outsider" release showed up out of the blue. kicking off with the 15 minute dirge of Opium the album shifts into some very intense dark dnb, some slight snatches of IDM and some wonderfully composed dark ambient sounds, and then like strange thief in the night, Babalon disappeared again to only appear with a handful of EP's and split releases in the late 90s-00's. Thom Yorke famously quoted this "was the most menacing release in his collection" and its hard not to see why he'd say such a thing. a great ride from start from finish.

Can someone comment the sound quality of the black vinyl pressing? And have all the copies really been recalled due to pressing issues?!

Just a heads-up to anyone looking to buy this pressing - got an email from Mohammad at Fatbeats. My preorder was delayed until March because the distributor recalled the pressing for a defect. I can’t be certain, but there is a good chance that currently available copies are bad.
