Somebody can explain this Price for a New records ?!?!? Crazy label , realy Bad to sell that for 160e !!

This might be the most beautifully packaged album I've ever gotten. It's pretty clear where the premium price on this one was put into, above and beyond the remastering of the records themselves. The amount of embossing and foil stamping on this is a sight to be seen, and the electrostatic sleeve was a clever touch. I for one am grateful this is moving slower than the last two remasters, it wouldn't be in these hands otherwise. It sounds as good as it looks as well. Keep these remasters coming, I can't wait to round out the collection at this point.

The release looks fantastic and it sounds remastered indeed, however, the quantity pressed and the price asked for, won't make this release as collectable as the rest. After two months it is still available from the official Bandcamp of Twisted for the launch price. So don't get fooled by sellers asking 2x times the price and if you want it, get it straight from the source. There is no question it looks simply amazing but I for one did not like the oversized book, it stands out next to the other reissues which already looked awesome anyway. One to have for listening and not to flip, there is no money to be made investing in this one.

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.
