Maus re-emerges after years of introspection, highly satisfying continuation of his post everything italodisco minimalwavish electro synthpop post everything rock and roll. Maus has a change in tone in this album, almost a sense of self constrain, there is still plenty of interesting pleasing experimentation going on here as far as music in general and/or non-mainstream electronic indie music in more specific terms, is concerned

It legitimately pains me to report that while the production and press are high quality, the only genuine classic track on this album is "The Combine." The tracks that follow are not bad, necessarily, but they are generic, mediocre, unsatisfying. Maus deploys a number of strategies to enhance the tracks; there are plenty of change ups and unexpected left turns in the arrangements. Yet the songs themselves have no hooks, and rarely much harmonic/melodic invention (the quality that made his last LP so satisfying). If it was a single with "The Combine" on the A and "Teenage Witch" on the B, I'd say it's a resounding success. I appreciate John Maus and the work he's done, and also appreciate the overarching theme of personal and collective apocalypse presented in Screen Memories. But unfortunately the music of Screen Memories does not deliver on that promise.

Wow, this is a superb pressing. As mentioned already below, the vinyl version adds even more sonic depth to this brilliant masterpiece! Album of the year for me, kids :) Looking forward to hearing Addendum in the spring, but sounds like it's only going to be available in the box set that's already sold out? I didn't pick it up as I had all of the other albums on vinyl already. Really hope that it may be made available separately, but I'm not holding my breath

Several people have already mentioned it, but this is a stunning record just on a purely sonic level.

A great vinyl pressing that gives the composition even more vacuous space. With a broader dynamic range tones build and decay longer creating a much more richer sound than the digital version of these songs.

Does anyone know if this is the exact same version we'll be getting if we preordered the box set?

Pressing/mastering/cut all top-notch on my copy of the coloured vinyl. Only slight issue is a bit of surface noise right at the end of each side in the right hand channel - only noticeable as the music's just finishing though.
