Crack The Skye, their fourth original studio album, mines subject matter from czarist Russia and astral travel to out-of-body experiences and Stephen Hawking's theories on wormholes for an unrepentantly heavy aural assault that will shake the heavens.

Great sounding LP. I don't know on what set was played by other reviewers but on my technics 1210 and at440 it has full spectrum of sound, great highs of all cymbals, tabourine in Oblivion is like in my room. Perfect soundstage.

There were 2500 of these made.... why the heck are people spending a ridiculous amount of money for the 45rpm version when there are that many in the wild?

Not an album that translates well to a one-disc LP. Sucks the life out of an incredible work.

Any thoughts on how these single disc represses sound? I'm worried about the sound quality since this album is a solid 50 minutes. Lot to squeeze on one disc.

These vinyls were not just sold through the website. I remember a friend and I each bought a copy of CTS at their Edmonton, AB show with Dethklok, Converge and High on Fire (Oct 7, 2009). When we opened them the next day, they were both Red/Gold swirl ... I bought the red/gold swirl LP when it first came out on the website as an "exclusive 650 copies website only", so I was surprised. There couldn't have been any more than 10 vinyls for sale at the show, the stack was pretty small.

I also remember the next day, their website saying they had "limited" quantities on the current tour. There may be more than 650 copies, unless they saved some for the tour.

Everywhere I check, no one mentions these tour copies; only they were sold exclusively through the website, which is not entirely true.

Great album as i am sure most of you know...but this vinyl copy, the single LP version, i found the volume to be just too quiet.

i always want to have this album cranked pretty much all the way through but i always find that i continually have to keep turning it up more and more, and then fear maxing out my speakers with too much power. Not sure if the engineers did this on purpose; i was thinking maybe it was put together a bit more quiet so as to refine as much of the detail as possible but...

i sought out the 2x12" version but have not opened it up yet to see if it makes any difference what version you pick up, but i will leave a review once i test it out.

All in all this is worth it most definitely to own on vinyl, not too expensive either i think. Just do not expect to be able to blast it like i am sure most of us would!
---Hope this helps

PS- Maybe if someone else found this they could let me know, incase it is just simply something in my set-up...but i do not think so.
