Sounds fantastic. Vocals are crystal clear with clear instrumental separation. Great sound stage with drums and spoken vocals.

Great pressing, no issues with noise. The mastering on this one leaves a little bit to be desired as it is a very fuzzy, messy album, even compared to some of the band's other outings. The tracklist split is also a bit of an odd choice. A bit of a misstep but a welcome addition to the catalog of pressings nonetheless.

Hate to say it, but this version does in fact not sound all that great, especially compared to the Glow In The Dark one. Absolutely beautiful and fitting though.
Random factoid: The story books are very different between ATO/Flightless/Heavenly in terms of manufacturing but also layout, the ATO version has an added ochre tint (printed, not from the paper).

Thankfully mine is not nearly as ugly as the one in the pictures. More of a dull green with light sparkles. Vomit / 10, not bad. Quality printing on the cover as well. Comes without a copy of the booklet, the packaging will be a problem with various record boxes, and forget about getting the paper bag into a separate sleeve for storage. This is more of a gimmick/collector release anyhow, at 1000 pieces.
Pressing sounds beautiful, no complaints.

HVNLP140X Glow In The Dark weighs 200g (checked it on the kitchen scale because it's fucking heavy). I'd say that makes "The only 180g vinyl pressing" fairly misleading if not false.

Love the color on this release. The vomit splatter looks great, especially spinning on a turntable. The booklet is great too, love all the art.

However the mix is muffled. I have the same issue with my copy of Nonagon Infinity. I don't know why these hard rocking albums are mixed so poorly when they never sound this bad digitally but man does it suck having to try and find the right balance of treble and bass. The worst part is, there isn't a good balance. I've tried again and again but it just cannot sound good no matter what I do.

I personally don't mind Lord of Lightning being split in two but I do think it is strange. I get why but it does ruin the flow.

(Edit: If you want it to sound good, turn bass pretty much all the way down, then it sounds fine.)
