Call me a rube, the pressing sounds fine to me.

There are some records that demand to be played at full volume so that they can overwhelm your senses, all of your senses. Obviously this is one of those special records that needs to fill a room, whether it's a bedroom, your headphones, a club, whatever. One part of me wants to do the Scott Walker thing and play it out as loud as possible and then put it away to never listen to again. But another part of me thinks this is an absolutely beautiful and vital piece of music that should be enjoyed whenever one wants.

Also, it should go without saying but nonetheless, part of the mystique around the release and part of my admittedly stupid and overwrought praise for it is due to its physical rarity. If this was mass released, it'd still be an incredible record, but I'd be less philosophical about it as a piece of material art.

There is a lot of distortion on the b-side (thank god they released WAV's), but otherwise the music that's on here is freakin' great.

Staggeringly gorgeous music, beautiful sleeve, but TERRIBLE pressing. Buy the wavs.

I first heard this on YouTube and I have to say it was one of the most incredible pieces of relaxing music I have heard. You have to be in the right state to really appreciate the quality of both of these songs. I went and purchased the 12" and I do not regret owning it other than the fact I constantly worry about maintaining its condition. Small sacrifice.

I cannot understand such releases anymore, this all seems to be a matrix error.

Finally got round to getting the official version only to find the two annoying screeches in Four Walls are still there! I had heard they were anti copyright sirens! Pleased I didn’t spend £££ on the vinyl. I can’t actually believe they allowed this to be released. The sound is to relaxation what dropping a toaster in would be to a nice bath.
