Warning for manual turntable owners: side B has looped line-out groove.

I just noticed that Dais Records edited the original thanks list by the artists on their reissues. Boyd Rice, Douglas P. and Michael Moynihan were deleted. A rather silly move imho.

My pressing (black vinyl) had a lot of light surface marks, some were scuffs, some more like fingerprints. None came off after cleaning so these are in the actual surface of the vinyl. However they didn't seem to have much impact audibly on the pressing.
Side A had one pop pre Track 1, rest of the side fine. Side B slightly off-centre (not audibly) and clean throughout.
Side C couple pops and some surface noise before end of side that carried on until central groove (which was fine!)
Side D main problem was quite badly off-centre, so Chalice was a bit more Siderreal than the artist (or Josh) would've intended. Did spoil that track, to be honest. Again some surface noise last minute or so and in lead-out groove. Rest of side clean.

The vinyl is lightweight (oddly) but mine was pretty flat and no rough/unfinished edges.Side D was the real let-down.
I've had much worse re surface noise but the marks on all 4 sides (the records come out of the paper inners very easily, so not during extraction) and off-centre stamping are signs of poor manufacturing quality control. Just hope "Musick" yellow vinyl is centred!

This is the only version with such a low average rating..so is the sound on this color version particularly bad?

My copy has some leftover of loose vinyl granules. It's especially bad in the case of Blue Rats. It "creates" a locked groove, but I'm afraid it may destroy the stylus. Not recommended.

Another excellent Coil reissue by Dais. No fear in purchasing it, this is quality stuff.

Well done, Dais. Dead silent pressing and worth the wait (which was considerable). Worth getting if you want to fill in the difficult-to-fill blanks in your collection

I've never heard an original Eskaton pressing, so I have no basis for comparison, but Dais seems to have done an excellent job with this reissue. The imagery on the packaging is fine resolution, the gatefold structurally solid. A black interior to the jacket is a nice touch. Vinyls come in generic sleeves.
Sound quality is impressive. Great dynamic range, and very very little noise throughout the many quiet areas of this record. It is not hard to imagine a disastrous pressing of this music. This is a great pressing.
