Bought the yellow vinyl at boomkat - it is a terrible pressing, clicks and pops all the way through the record. The staff at boomkat was very friendly; because it would have been too expensive sending the record back to england (from germany), they sent me a mp3 release of their catalogue for free. Now I bought the cd of lion production and it sounds great. I'll never play the record again, but the cd runs all the time...

Strange... I got previous pressing on black vinyl and it's absolutely listenable. There are couple of clicks and pops here and there but nothing beyond average. My advice: try to get black vinyl edition or wait for CD.

Norman records has the yellow as well right now. They will remove the record from the sleeve upon request which is one of the reasons I buy from them unlike Juno who refuse to do so and I ended up with damaged sleeves. Norman will also package in an extra strong mailer for a small fee. Link to their packaging:

Yellow vinyl is up at Boomkat right now. Most likely won't last too long. BTW, does anyone know the pressing info for these Yellow Vinyl represses? I just bought one myself.

This album is a true work of art. It really illustrates Coil's genius and demonstrates how Coil constantly pushed the boundaries of what music is and how it could effect the listener on deeper and deeper levels; with each piece of work they created.
