while the sleeve is quite flimsy and makes putting a record away into a hassle, the pressing itself while quiet plays perfectly. just make sure to crank up your sound system

There are two 'versions' of this edition. A few hundred were sealed with a sticker. Fewer still had the sticker not sealing the vinyl in. And had an A4 info sheet on the front in between the record and the plastic sheath.

Does anyone know if the triple LP version from Autofact is gatefold?

the a-side of my fresh new copy starts with quite some vinyl crackle - is this a pressing problem that other owners have as well?

Excellent music, one of the best albums ever made, but the sleeve on this version is very simple and thin cardboard - and not even gatefold. Sub Pop could make it better, but of course they smell the dollars here (produce as cheap as possible -> win maximum).

No one seems to catch that this album's subtitle and artwork are a parody of this collection of field recordings called "Environments 2" For those wondering that's where the "Special Low Frequency Version" in the name comes from.

One of my favorites. What a beautiful album. I've slept to it, and listened intently to it, every time it just takes me somewhere else. Gives me great visuals, and I feel as if I am floating on the heavy waves of drone and feedback. Very heavy album indeed. One that you must listen to many times to just "get". It is also inspirational to me, and my musical abilities. Earth covers so much ground throughout the decades that they have made music for us.

Dylan Carlson never composed rock music, but he loves - more than anyone else! – the raw material of rock music: distorted sounds. His fascination for the psychedelic power of sonic distorted vibrations was the first intuition for the creation of a new kind of music. He slowed down Black Sabbath sepulchral riffs and amplified their bass frequencies into a noisy direction, deeper than Melvins’ one just some years before. First Earth album represents the transformation: from a dilated extreme doom/noise metal to the pure vibration. In 1993, when everyone in Seattle (even King Buzzo) pursued the perfect rock song, he completely deconstructed rock music creating an unusual wall of sound, close to kosmische musik and minimalism. Yet Earth music is so raw, inaccurate and dirty that cannot have any deliberate intellectual claim…in pure rock style!
