The rave around this release is without basis, I can not hear something original in here as this sounds just like a kind of pop-ish mating between 90's Pete Namlook for the house-ambient parts and The Cinematic Orchestra for the jazzy parts.

There is a japanese repress of 2016 marked as limited edition. Someone knows the differences between the standard (BRC487) and the limited (BRC487X)? Thank you

I opened a new copy and there is a 1 min scratch in A1. Not my lucky day.

Anybody know where this was pressed? Master and cut are the same as the Pluto UK Optimal pressing.

The album itself is incredible - composition, production, mastering, sound and everything. Totally agree that it's one of the very best of 2015. I just want to add some comments regarding the 2016 Pluto repress. I bought it from HHV and had to return it TWICE, because of the SAME defect in the SAME place - in the middle of the 1st track, where it reaches its volume peak, the groove is broken, resulting in two very loud distortions. Apart from it, the pressing is good. So as I returned it twice, I assume it might be a common problem... I ended up bying Luaka Bop regular version, and it's flawless. I am not exactly sure, but it seems even slightly better than Pluto's pressing soundwise...

There was a problem with the Aus pressing - Tk 7 cutoff, and Tk 8 was missing...

Unimpressive. Really don't understand just what the hype is about. We've seen much more convincing examples of jazz-influenced electronics, Cobblestone Jazz or Jan Jelinek, just to name a few. Considering all the hype, to me this release is extremely overrated.

I must be very very unlucky, side B plenty of clicks and pops, c'mon what's wrong with pressing quality these days..... The release is simply spectacular!
