Arrived sealed, discs were quite dirty as a result of the paper sleeves they come with. No worries, I was able to do a few dry cleans and removed 95% of the debris and they played fine. The sound on all sides are great, a bit of surface noise but there's lots of that mixed into the production itself, not an issue at all. Discs are all centered and flat.

Only thing I'd improve is providing anti-static sleeves, but that's a simple enough fix.

Interesting that there are so many iterations of track arrangement and length between the versions. It would seem that this vinyl pressing should be considered the most definitive physical version, as its contents and arrangement seem to match the digital version.

The sound on this is very powerful. It really gets you, and I think that's the most important thing about this release. I'm a bit disappointed by the quality of the album cover - it's totally blurred. I have doubts original looked the same.

For me, the sound seems really decent and I'm delighted to have this on vinyl. But I don't understand why it's being advertised as 180g. They're definitely not. My discs 1 and 3 are 150g and disc 2 is 160g.

Until today I've only had the experience of hearing GAS in nothing higher than FLAC quality. That was a step up from the 4th hand MP3's someone gave me 12 years ago.

Today I received the 3LP 2019 re-issue of Zauberberg and somehow GAS has taken on yet another life for me...

The sound on these LP's is rich to the the point of a slight organic distortion and there are tones I've never heard in the digital versions. With these additions, the songs take on a new life, and seem to make way more sense than just hearing anything less.

I don't know why people think re-issue = more packaging. I couldn't ask for anything more than what those in 1997 got to hear for the first time!

Now - is Konigsforst coming soon???

"The record sides are not shown on the labels" Why not ? I find it really annoying. The same goes for 33 or 45 on Kompakt´s releases.

I'm waiting for my copy, hoping for a great vinyl quality and that it's treated with more respect at the pressing plant than the Gas box...
To the comment below, I think this is not priced too high for 3 vinyls, only €24,90 at Kompakt.
And those 'pops' at side D are intended to be. You can can hear on the CD version and digital files.
Edit: I received my copy, and it looks and sounds perfect. No fingerprints or other issues.
Now waiting for the other GAS represses...

Kind of a dissapointing reissue for that price. Vinyl is only 150 grams, lots of pops (especially on side D), housed in thin black sleeves and a flimsy single jacket.

Does this reissue sound better than the 1997 original issue?

Can someone comment on the quality of artwork/packaging on this? Is it comparable to Nah Und Fern?

I have the Box but considering changing to these represses as I dislike the format and production on that release..
