I see a bunch of people complaining about paying 20 for a 4 track EP. How the crapsack did you not know what it was? Did you all just buy it not knowing the track list? That's no ones fault but yours. The EP is amazing, and it was put together BY HAND and screen printed, not by machine. It's super rare in my opinion and will be worth a lot in the future.

Update: After my experience (see below) I have decided that I will never buy any massive attack ever again.it was bad enough that I got charged £20 for a 4-track 12" single but when I saw that their new 12" was pretty much the same price I was disgusted.
You're good guys,you're not THAT good.you don't see fsol charging £20 for a 4 track ep.this is a shame,a damn shame.gutted.

Sounds terrific ! Such a depth in the mix. It was a bit expensive here in France because of the importation, but it was worth the effort.

Additionally, and hopefully to their credit, Sandbag offered a refund. So I'll take them up on it and see how it goes, obviously requesting that they pay for the return shipping.

Not a double as advertised. I complained and got the "sorry, misprint" email. Wouldn't have bought this 4 track EP for 20 pounds, very hard to swallow. Having said that, my pressing is dead quiet, quite remarkable really. NOT recommended for that price, they should be ashamed.

Does anyone else seem to get a strange ticking sound on both sides? it seems to be a little black bit in the vinyl (as if it's marbled) that causes the ticking.
anyone?

great 12’’. But what a rip-off price and what a wrong way to do marketing. Its NOT a 2 vinyl. Its not a ep, its a 12’’ but priced as an album. Still 4 good tracks, too pricey. and where is printed 4 colour process + special screen printed 5th colour orange ?

Fantastic EP. Every song is great, but why does track 4 "feature" 3D? He is already 1/2 of Massive Attack. :S

Am I wrong or was this initially advertised as a double vinyl release? Even in the description on the webstore? http://www.thevinylfactory.com/vinyl-factory-news/massive-attack-to-release-new-ep-ritual-spirit-on-limited-edition-vinyl/
