No. 3 in my top 10 Records of 2017. Have been waiting for this since Passover.


December 7, 2017

I desperately wanted this glow in the dark RSD version and stood in line for hours on RSD but didn't get one. I did pick up the standard black vinyl, but it also has a lot of surface noise...most notably Side 1 of Disc 1 there is a crackle when it hits a certain spot of the rotation.Even after cleaning there really was not much improvement. Likely it is the production of all the vinyl from this release all the way around. Previous Vinyl that I have from The Black Angels is excellent, so this was a real disappointment from Partisan Records. I love the album, but pretty much listen digitally because listening to the vinyl is just irritating.

Read the info on this Sunn O))) release (disclaimer that glow in the dark version is not for audiophiles...)

I had bought an LP in the past pressed on glow in the dark vinyl, and it was very noisy, meaning high noise floor, the pressed music sounds fine when on decent sound levels but at quite passages one can notice the higher noise floor on such pressings. It is the same with certain other coloured types of vinyl as well. For example I once sold a copy of an Earth LP re-release which was on orange vinyl, and bought the black version, which was not noisy at all (noise floor level). Black vinyl sounds always the best.

Great album. Interesting glow in the dark option, but yes, noisy as all hell. Only noticeable in the quite sections. Looking for an audiophile release look elsewhere. Interested in something different then it's a cool addition to a collection.

No noticeable noise issues here. Must have caught a fresh one! Sounds wonderful via my Ortofon 2m red cart, Pro-Ject tt, Kenwood KR-4600 and JBL Primas! Beautiful. A keeper.

Their best since Passover.
I don't believe in buying or the manufacturing of colored vinyl for the sake of the colored vinyl. However, if it fits the aesthetic and there is care put into the production then it can be a bonus. This edition is well done. I was not expecting the sound quality to be the most desirable, butI am pleasantly surprised. Mine has some surface noise on the start of each disc, but other than that there is very little throughout the rest of the album.

The surface noise on my copy is practically impossible to hear except very minimally between tracks. If that bothers you, buy a cheap CD or black vinyl version in addition to this spectacular pressing. If you give your record a good cleaning, you'll be fine. Exceptional release. Amazing artwork and trippy tunes. This is a fantastic package well worth the (inflated) cost.

Great album, but the noise on the glow pressing is unacceptable, considering the $30 price tag.
