I can play it very loud (ok it's relevant). A lot of "music" here, so it's very difficult for a "stereo system" to cope with it. But every "instrument" has it's own space, the imaging is very good, almost pinpoint. It could benefit with tiny (just a tiny) more high frequencies, but not on all tracks, so I think they made overal an excellent work. The bass doesn't rubble at all it's very defined. Two things I cannot stand, rubble bass and fizzling highs. Good job Daddy Kev, NS and Record Industry.

This record certainly resists being played at high volumes, unfortunately. The dynamic range is really small - it sounds like a brick wall of sound with minimal separation between instruments, and the bass rumbles angrily and overpowers everything when turned up loud. It's a shame because it definitely doesn't do the spacy atmosphere of this album justice. I still think it's worth owning on vinyl if you get it cheap enough though, when played at more moderate volumes it sounds it sounds just as great as any album on vinyl would; the packaging / artwork is stellar, and quiter moments on the album like "Mmhmm" are mostly exempt from the loudness war issues

This is one hell of a pressing. And for $20-something dollars? It's a great deal. I don't even know what the artwork is supposed to be, like what are the letters? Whatever it is, it's great to stare at. If you're interested in listening to the album, get this one. It's stupid cheap for the quality of this pressing.

Let's get this out of the way. Flying Lotus does not make audiophile recordings. His music exists in the digital realm, is intentionally clipped, distorted, and compressed to the point of no return. Dynamic range, yeah, that's hilarious. It's part of his aesthetic.

With that being said, hardcore fans of Cosmogramma will enjoy this pressing.

The new artwork within the gatefold is nice, as is the art print insert. The marbled colored vinyl, while it works with the overall aesthetic, is a huge miss for me. The center labels on my copy were properly aligned, but don't include side indicators, so have fun guessing which side you're listening to.

As for the sound quality...it's excellent. This is an album that I know intimately, and you can expect to discover greater clarity, nuance, and separation amidst the chaos. In some cases, it's startling (Do the Astral Plane and MmmHmm made my neck snap). The veil has been lifted. Prepare for another journey of sonic discovery.

My pressing is very quiet.

Okay but how does it sound? Is the remaster good/worth it?

This version of Cosmogramma came without labels on the A and B side. Like, the first LP is completely naked. Am I the only one with this issue?

Some people might not notice it, but the center labels on this release are misplaced, affecting Side B and C since they swapped label art. I pointed this out to the people of VMP, and they confirmed this oddity. Not sure if it means they'll make a new pressing with the correct center labels, it's worth pointing out.

As an aside, I love this album. It covers the right kind of genres that appeal to me in almost every track.

Had this on CD for a while and absolutely adore it. Bought the vinyl and it's even better - superb clean recording and pressing and great dynamics.
