I didn't like this. I bought it off a beach vendor on Brighton seafront for a tenner in the early 00's, I kind of felt bad because he clearly didn't know it was going for 3 times as much on ebay back then. However as I didn't like it I actually went into Rounder Records in Brighton and asked them if they'd swap it for the copy of The Advent - Elements of Life which they had going for £30 and had been there for at least a year, they did a quick ebay search and agreed! So yeah I didn't like this one :)

Surprisingly fast delivery from Planet Mu website.... I certainly did not expect it to be a single pocket jacket supporting three LPs at once. Could have a risk of severe split seams, but luckily didn't happen to me. The LPs are regular weight (140g maybe), a couple of static sides due to the black paper sleeves, but other than that, I'm very happy with this pressing. Mastering was handled by Beau Thomas, who has been cutting some AFX releases since Syro, and, well, the source material for this one may sound digitally rough, but I think he handled it well. No download code, at least not in my copy, but since I bought from Planet Mu Bleepstore, the purchase already comes with bundled lossless files for download.

Lots of different reactions when I get to play this one out.
But finally I attach more and more importance to it as it emerges you in the creativity of a mutant producer...
Well and maybe I am crazy wrong but my head just made a link from Jelly Fish to some Manu Dibango gem

At the time to me it sounded a bit like left over Jake Slazenger tracks that either Warp or Clear didn't want and Richard threw in a couple of random rough draft tracks to fill it out. I know there are heaps of people who love it but as an owner of pretty much everything these guys have put out over the years this album is the least played out of all of them for me. Great cover though!

A fun and exciting return of Mike & Rich's work from the "Expert Knob Twiddlers" collab. Albeit appearing in a slightly different order, all 10 original classics from the 1996 Rephlex version are given a nice mastering cleanse and sound better than ever. And the icing on the cake? Us loyal fans of Ziq and the Twin are treated to 7 bonus tracks on a dual disc! These additional tunes definitely host a welcome change in sound for this duo, from the 8 bit whimsy of "Portamento Gosh" to the ravishingly beautiful "Waltz" as well as a number of sequels to previous well-known anthems. And of course, let's not forget the in-your-face sass n bass of "Brivert & Muonds" at last presented in all its funky glory! Makes one wonder why none of these made the original cut, but better late than never. A wonderful gift from the Planet Mu crew for the end of the summer! ;-)

Wow, the CD was actually more expensive than the LP even in the late 90's, when CDs already dominated the market.

Rarest item in my collection. Sounds really nice, love the design, overall just a really good reissue of a stellar album.

Splendid remastered sound, splendid album. If, as me, you already own the old CD, this new 3xLp version is worth it, both for the sound and for the 7 bonus. And also for the cover!

So is this also remastered? Cause there is only a RM note at the blue vinyl version. Here we've got only the RP note.
