Remember when Cedric called out these Music On Vinyl re-issues as bootlegs and was promising their own official versions coming out?? That was 5 YEARS AGO and yet, nothing. Ahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

does anyone know what the best vinyl pressing of this album is? cant afford the original silver but still want a good quality vinyl version of this album

In the last month, some 50 vinyl copies of this have shown up for sale here. Its nice to see that a sudden flooding of the market hasn't driven down the prices.

No one is going to buy it unless you offer it for a reasonable price. Savages.

When the heck are they going to print this again , and why haven't they? Its like $200 for a record....that's insane...I don't know what it takes to do this but maybe a record store day release or something I don't know...I just love this album and would love to have it on vinyl

Anybody else have a CD copy that doesn't look anything like the CD in the provided images? My CD doesn't have ANY printing on the label side. It looks like a blank CD, but plays fine. The barcode matches this one but the Matrix/Runout code on the disc is B00 005 9302 01@A. It was purchased new from a Best Buy not long after it came out. EDIT: I also tried playing both sides in case it was an unintentional double CD overlooked at the factory. Only one side plays.

A voyage between psychodelic/new age melodic landscapes and harsh metal/punk bashing rythms, with some remarkable solos and ostinatos.

Hi there,
About the 2xlp album. I'm not 100% sure but I believe GSL printed these copies in a few times. First pressing was in 2003 (5000 copies I believe maybe less), some records (the other 10000) had a later date I believe. They have the same catalog number but there is a difference between them. I know this because the website GLS had a very detailed that time. Maybe some people can check this info. I only have a copy from 2003.
An other option is to look for the GSL website but it looks like it dissapeared.

Anyone know anything about the fakes out there? I have a copy with some bootleg looking inner sleeves compared to the original I bought from gsl in 2005... the sleeves in question are laminated and lower quality. My originals are thicker, sturdy, better quality. I'm wondering if the whole package is fake?

v that's what I figured, but you just don't run into this record A-NY-WHERE ffs
