The only Album-Vinyl-Edition of Goldie's Masterwork is a shame! No Flow in the sequences, completly crippled versions, the Hit-Tracks Timeless /Inner City Life and the wonderful 'Sea of Tears' are missing! Why this botch is named: 'Timeless' and not: 'Useless'?

I believe this release contains the only vinyl versions of "You & Me" (reworked vocals from the 1993 release) and "Still Life".

Also, I think this 2xLP contains a slightly different version of "This Is A Bad" as compared to the 2xCD versions? Includes a short answering machine message before the track starts... I could be mis-remembering.

Is there a full version of the 21-minute opener "Timeless" available on vinyl?

If you're going to only buy 3 "intelligent" drum'n'bass albums, the ones you need came out in short succession: 4 Hero's Parallel Universe, Goldie's Timeless, and T.Power's The Self-Evident Truth of an Intuitive Mind. All three sound a bit dated because d'n'b became all about hard two-step beats in the latter half of the '90s, a punishment from which it never really recovered. However they do still sound contemporary in that they're more like what came later than what came before; there are hints of the ragga and chipmunk sounds of early jungle, but those tropes appear sparingly, with the focus being on ever-more complicated arrangements of chopped-up beats and a suspenseful, sometimes menacing backing atmosphere.

Despite being more sophisticated and structured than almost anything that came before it, Goldie's album has extended "hard" runs, and in that respect, it's the most authentic as far as what you'd hear out at a rave at the time. 4 Hero's album is the prettiest, incorporating jazzy elements and introducing more traditional sophistication and smoothness to the genre, a torch carried by many other artists on this new, jazzy side of d'n'b for a long while afterward. T.Power's is the concept album, a cohesive "intelligent"/"ambient" work, not a collection of separate tracks like the others (notwithstanding the epic title track that kicks off Timeless). I enjoy the T.Power album more than the others just for its balls-out trippiness, but it pales in intensity compared to Timeless, and in musicality when compared to the 4 Hero album.

Its hard to separate Timeless from the almost legendary reputation of its creator.
Already deserving credit for pioneering his distinctive chopped beat and timestretching Rufige Kru sound under the wing of 4 Hero's forward thinking Reinforced label he had been producing music that had been at the forefront of the rave scene
But then he grabbed the mantle and took things to the next level.
So this album deserves the accolade for being maybe the first jungle album that reached out to the mainstream masses without compromising on its roots or its ambition
Inner City Life was the sound of rave turned sour by Thatcherism.
Hard,pissed off,sticking its chest out and spewing out gut wrenched blood spattered unadulterated soul.One of the first (maybe only) jungle tunes you could watch on MTV but despite that it did not try to soften its vision or message.
So maybe it was natural that Goldie would continue his ambassadorial tendencies and make his own persona more accessible to the masses
But like his metalheadz label which has remained uncompromising to the day this album was the perfect fusion of hard but accessible.
It was not the most innovative album of its time and maybe its not an album for the beats purists.But thats not the point.Tracks like the title cut,Jah the Seventh Seal snd Kemistry encapsulated the dark machine at the heart of Goldie's soul.Still Life,A Sea of Tears and You and Me showed a more reflective emotional side.This album is all about feeling.
To understand the rise and fall of Jungle you have to have to centre yourself on this pivotal album.

I am honestly not too schooled on DnB/Jungle that much, but I remember seeing/hearing the video for "Timeless" at 2 AM when I was 14-ish. As many of you can imagine, experiencing the atmosphere of such a track at that time and age was mind blowing. Ever since then it has been one of my favorite tracks of any genre. That cut alone just takes you in every emotional direction and transcends yourself from reality in every way. I am a jazz/soul head so the obvious underlying spacey jazz vibe on this whole album really captivated me. Absolutely essential genre defining release for ANY appreciators of electronic/jazz/chill/and all around soulful styles!!!

If you even vaguely like dnb get this NOW, absolute killer classic, if you can hunt for the Black-cover 2CD (828 614-2) FFRR, contains 12 tracks and a 2nd mix of a sense of rage, plenty of videos on youtube so you can see if you like. Soulful, brutal, groundbreaking, irresistable, 'nuff said!!!

The greatest DnB album ever! Nothing is as big as this album!
The tunes, the vocals, the atmosphere is all fantastic...
You've can't be a DnB enthusiast without having this album!

A few words to Goldie...
Goldie, you're the god of DnB, no doubt!
You're been such a great influence to me!
You've made me start listening to Dnb!
You're a great artist!
Thanks!

Pernally found the "Timeless" what actually is a 3x mix between 3 tunes, the best. It's pure gold!
Go buy that album... Or you'll miss the pillar of the Dnb music!
It's "Timeless" for sure...

Legends never die!
