This is a nice release. The mountains are on the outside slipcase, the globes are printed onto the case itself, and the rectangle artist’s logo is printed on the tape.

It isn’t separated by an ‘A’ side and a ‘B’ side, but rather a ‘white’ side and a ‘black’ side. Nothing indicates in which order the sides should be listened, except for reading in the traditional Western left-to-right manner, in which case one would listen to the ‘white’ side first. The cover encourages listening “at all speeds”.

The music on the tape is dark and foreboding, but still pretty chill. It makes me think of Russia, probably because of “Cold War” in the title of the piece on the ‘white’ side.
