maybe its because I can only compare this to MP3 but I don't think it sounds that bad. it had some surface noise that you could hear on the quieter tracks and I agree it sounds a bit dull but if you really want a copy of this album and don't want to pay $80+ for an original, I think it's fine. at least they got the inserts right.

I believe I have this one, rather than the 1994 version, since mine says Faust So Far on the cover. Etching variant 2, and handwritten Recommended records on the label. Otherwise completely black, though, and no paintings included. Anyone familiar with that version?

I don't actually have this but I made a copy of it to tape (TDK SA-X90) off a guy I knew from down the pub in the mid eighties just after I left school and was beginning to appreciate different styles of music. I know I have this exact copy because for some reason I wrote the catalogue number on the J-Card and it specifically says Polydor 2310 196 SUPER. I can also tell you that I recorded it on 8th May 1986 at 18:30hrs which happens to be five months after I recorded Faust IV on the same tape previously borrowed from that same guy.
That pub has gone now and the guy I got to know again twenty years later when I started frequenting the pub he subsequently went to. I told him that I still have the tape and he welled up a bit. I'm listening to it as I write this and it still sounds stunning after all these years. Long live the great cassette come-back.

Just bought a copy. No inserts. The front cover is the same but the back cover is completely blank. The labels have the handwritten Recommended Records and if I look very closely under good light I can a handwritten Faust and what looks like the song titles. They are numbered. The run out is the same above. Anyone know anything about this? Loving the record, btw.

I do have this issue complete of 9 prints set and black sheet, identical to the other issue. the only difference is the write FAUST SO FAR front cover, a bit smaller and with different typefaces of letter "a", the same outer cover is more thin and delicate. my copy is in immaculate condition, all seems an original set. i owned other copies of the other uk issue. this issue remain a mistery.

Inserts are great on this. Sound is terrible. Avoid and get another reissue or original if possible. This album really deserves a better pressing and 4 Men With Beards are notorious for average, possibly grey market pressings from low quality digital sources.

Not sure what was meant by dull mastering, average pressing as my copy sounds perfectly fine although I am concious I haven't heard an original pressing.

Nicht sehr kosmische indeed...... More approachable than other Faust offerings a must have for the true experience of avant grade
