This is the better of the two "Journey of the Deep Sea Dweller" compilations out so far, and I'm almost certain it will remain the best regardless of what they put on the rest of the planned releases.

Clone records brings us a fresh compilation of classic tracks by Drexciya. This couldn't come at a better time, as much of the group's early work has been long and undeservedly out of print. Their method here is not to reissue Drexciya's legendary EPs in their original form, but to jumble up the tracklist and cherry pick stuff from different releases. I could quibble with the track selection, never having been a fan of bangers like "Seaquake" and "Beyond the Abyss". But Clone has hinted at more reissues to come, so I'll hold my tongue there.

Audio quality is very good: a huge improvement over the ancient vinyl rips that folks like myself have been relying on, but not overly EQed for punch or loudness like so many modern remasters.

This compilation also includes a previously unreleased track, "Unknown Journey I".
