Simon says: 'this costs us 80 pounds to make, 'Ineffable Mysteries From Shpongleland' cost us a fortune.
I wonder what the price of that one's going to be.... It think it will cost us a fortune too.

What is the reason of doing reissue priced (sealed) like rare discogs vinyls? Both earlier reissues also look and sound great in same hardcover, and cost half of this - dissapointed with this release, make money is great, but in this way?!

Another fine edition in Shpongle's remastering catalog. The very heavy book is beautiful. It changes in different colored lights. But most importantly, the music is also well done. I'm surprised more people haven't mentioned the fact the vinyl sounds fantastic.

Insane price but what wouldn't you do for your maybe favorite Shpongle album. Twisted may have some problems with these, still available after 2 weeks, unlike some of the earlier releases that sold out in a day.
Edit: Finally gave it a listen, this is the first remaster where I can hear a difference clearly. Not bad.

A simply beautiful piece of art with multidimensional layers to explore :)

Finally! It took a while for this to arrive, and the HEFTY price tag was hard to swallow, but since this is a release I've always loved and wanted to own on vinyl... oh well.
So today it arrived and, to make it short, it's beautiful.
The record comes in a custom anti static sleeve, with Shpongle related stuff printed on front and back, held together with a silvery Shpongle sticker.
The outer record sleeve is thick and sturdy, embossed and layer with various metallic foils, making it a piece of art imho, very pleasing to look at.
It opens like a book, albeit one with just 8 pages, and houses two records, both in shrink-wrapped sleeves with custom, uni-coloured designs that look like something off a circuit board.
The records are flat, clean and, just like the other Shpongle reissues, sound as good as it gets. Simon and his crew know how good audio works, and this release makes me want to explore the layered piece of flowing music that "Nothing Lasts..." is, again.
All in all a brilliant addition to any lover of psychedelic electronica's record collection, albeit the kinda ridiculous price.

I first heard this album around 2007-2008, I can't pinpoint it more than that, since I bought it in a physical store, which is very rare for me, and Discogs (at the time of this review) only dates stuff newer than 9 years. Otherwise, the date when you added the item to your collection will just say "Added over 9 years ago". Something newer members should be glad to never experience, I enjoy seeing when I have added a new item to my collection (adding the date would be even cooler).
Anyway, I went to a bigger city with my family, which also was rare, and I went to a CD store. I bought this because I had seen people talking on Discogs but I had never dared to try it. I was kinda into sure cards, not really willing to take chances on music. And since back then I only listened to psy-trance, I was pretty surprised when it sounded like this. A bit disappointed actually. I listened to it in the car with my family, I was around 18 back then, still in school. I was expecting psy-trance, which was a genre that I was pretty newly exposed to. Before that, I had listened to hard dance for a few years and actually didn't think there was anything more energetic, intelligent or different from the shit on the radio, so I was very surprised when I accidentally downloaded some psy-trance on DC++. After trying it out and a pretty long familiarization period, I started to enjoy it and it became the only thing I listened to. Once again I was naïve and didn't expect there to be anything else out there. How wrong I have been proven to be over the years. Well, as with psy-trance, this took some time getting used to, since I enjoy speed in music. Over the years this has become the album that represents Shpongle for me. Not surprising at all, since it was my introduction. But that aside, as has been written in various comments and places, it's kinda whack to have 20 short songs on music like this, usually. I don't think it is so crazy though, because the album has so many changes. I just heard the end of Exhalation which builds into the next track, and the mood is so extremely different from when the album started. Yet, it is all not only mixed together, it is more like it is built together as one song, and the different songs are just there to fill the need for tracks. On the other hand, the music tells a story in a language that we can only take for what it is, it can't be translated into words on either paper or in speech. But these tracks names are more like a second message from the artists, where they tell us what they see. As you can probably guess from my rant, it's 4:20 here. Unlike many albums that seem to have a lot of empty space, there is always, always something happening in this album. It is quite astonishing actually. As a producer myself, this is inspiring to me. I actually have a hard time making songs longer than 2-3 minutes, but they all turn out really well. Maybe I should consider doing some kind of mix. Last track just started, and it's very chill. I know I haven't said much helpful, so let's get to the bottom line.

This album has so much variation that as long as you're into anything psychedelic, there will surely be something for you. This album never gets boring and getting to experience it as a remaster in 24 bit is just amazing. I can't wait to receive the vinyls.
