Some 25 years on, this remains a beautiful, sublime and timeless piece of work. I was very lucky to find a sealed copy a few years ago, which is now a treasured part of my collection, having only previously owned a CDr copy. There are a few comments on this page about a repress and on balance I probably agree - if it were to be done, then it should be done over 3 x LP, because I feel that on the inside tracks of the 2 x LP, there is a reduction in sound level / quality which would be my only crticism of the original version.

In any case: masterpiece, classic, timeless - no amount of adjectives really do this justice - the music speaks for itself.

Absolutely dumbfounded that this record has not been reissued since a late 1990s cd reissue. Please, please reissue on vinyl.

As others have noted, excellent electronic album. The one thing I'd like to clarify is that several mention the stories in the booklet - swk24 claims "the booklet of stories is not that necessary" while spa5tik0lonz notes "the short stories fit perfectly with each track" though it's unclear just how this is meant. Regardless, the latter is the correct statement. Here is why:

The booklet starts by stating this is a work of "duo-sensory fiction." What this means (I figured this out when I started to wonder..."What if you try to read the booklet exactly along with the music?") is that there are cues in the text that line up with samples/events in the songs. At first it seems like it's working, then not, but as you adjust your reading pace you will realize the entire booklet matches the entire CD. It's incredible. Really one of the most amazing works I'm aware of once this is taken into consideration (and it's already one of the best electronic albums ever made!).

I cannot for a single moment fathom why I sold my copy of this many many years ago.
I still have it on CD but it's not the same as vinyl + the booklet
Why?... :(

Dope album, full of industrial beats and dark/spacey melodies.

Indeed...as stated below, this album really is an incredible piece of music. Like md said before me, i also first heard this on one of Colin Dales outer limit shows in 93, though i believe it was the track ahn he played that night, it was nothing short of beautiful, and i couldn't wait for its release and hear more. It didn't disappoint in any way then and it still doesn't now, some 20 odd years later, the perfect soundtrack for the best sci-fi movie yet to be made. For me its up there with the best of them.

I'm pretty sure that after having listened to music for over 40+ years that this record is tied with Joy Division's 1st 2 albums for my Greatest Album Ever Made. It is just completely perfect in every way, I wouldn't change a single note of it. Every so often a record comes along that leaves you astonished at the power and creativity of the human mind - this one is it.
