Forgot about this one. Will be a classic of the genre.

Was rather surprised to spot this new at a local store, didn't know they ever repressed it. Great quality, too - sounds pretty much perfect, comes with a neat insert, top notch stuff.

Did notice the cut fade - stupid, eh? That happened on last tk. Side 1 on SPV CD of Popol Vuh's 'Cobra Verde' too......Didn't notice New Statue, will try again......

Has anyone noticed that some tracks are shorter than the original cassette version?

Not sure if it's just my copy, but it seemed like they cut out the fade out in Please Don't Fade Away and ended New Statue a bit early on my copy.

Amazing reissue regardless!

Best album of 2017, even though it was a reissue. Tunes are amazing. Wonder if Ian Brown from the Roses heard track A3, Destination Moon. If you ever reform I will be there.

This is by far THE best Solid Space release hands down. The sound is amazing and love the fact that there is a insert lyric sheet with never before seen photos, original advert on cardstock, and unreleased tracks as well. Also it’s not ridiculously priced, if you order directly from the label. Have been waiting for this since forever. Glad Dark Entries was finally able to put this out.

absolutely stunned at how good this sounds. Came as a surprise considering the jacket is rather flimsy and cheap. highly recommend and so happy to have this in my collection

Just a fantastic re-issue from Dark Entries. George Horn's remastering sounds absolutely stellar. He really is a master craftsman. This is not some crappy cassette rip with some limiting. This is a thoughtful, careful remaster from the master tapes, better sounding than the original cassette. I really appreciate Dark Entries bringing this extremely obscure gem back into the world. Highly recommended!

I want to point out what a complete and total punishing clown a certain someone flooding this release with comments is. Not only are the Marine Girls credited on the insert, but so is the individual who did the layout. The guy had no clue what he was talking about, but it didn't stop him from making no less than 4 comments with false allegations and baselessly attacking a woman.
