Sad to say, my copy has surface noise and the occasional but repetitive click. Since I ordered from Amazon UK shipped here to the US, not worth returning.

I ordered a copy direct from FSOLDigital.com and only in the last week so way off first presses. It arrived with a separate package containing a limited numbered and signed postcard print artwork, and a small booklet entitled "Ramblings of a Madman" with notes and artwork. So impressed, wonderful extra touch. Puts them up there with Beastie Boys going the extra mile with vinyl releases both for quality of reissues and box sets, and bonus extras!

Sound quality NOT destroyed through remastering like everything else nowadays. Thanx, that's the best info you could have given us.

Two outer gatefold cover variants of r83318 (this release): matte finishing one and glossy finishing the other. Have pictures of the both to compare.

Beautiful packaging, nice heavyweight vinyl (totally flat too), superb sound.

Not a single tick or pop. A deep, immersive sound.

No, it's not remastered. Thank god!

Turn it up...

Could someone tell me how it compares to:

a) the original vinyl pressing from back in the day ?
b) The cd from back in the day.

Many thanks

Its clean, no noise whatsoever, so I am really pleased. Really wish it had been given the full remaster treatment, but it is what it is, and its a firm thumbs up.

After the success of prompting to Virgin/EMI/Universal the repress of Lifeforms on double vinyl, we changed the name of the group and its new mission now is to ask for reissues of all back catalogue (Virgin years from '93 to '97) in expanded/deluxe versions/formats to Universal Music Operations Ltd. Here our public facebook group: https://m.facebook.com/groups/1696814860617600
Feel free to join and to express all your ideas/projects/requests.

I had Dead Cities which I’ve always loved so couldn’t pass the chance to get Lifeforms as it was reissued. Superb album - up there with the best electronic downtempo albums of all time. The pressing is excellent. No crackles or noise at all and very good sounds including atmospheric bass which goes very low. Brilliant piece of wax.
