Thankfully (based on some other comments here) my copy is perfect. Such a great album.

This is defenitely a great album and also a fantastic edition , heavy gatefold , 4 lps in dedicated sleeves with fine artwork , even the quality of paper is exemplary , all in all , an amazing combo !!! My only caveat would be the production , I don't really get that "overcooked highs" thing , it adds a piercing quality that fatigues after a while ... I also have the same issue with their first album I own in original German , toned & brittle highs that spoil the party ... also , other fields of production could be better , lows sometimes sound fat and congested , voices muffled , I could go on ... anyways , life isn't perfect , so I'll stop bitching and plain enjoy :-)

I was just sent replacement copies for all the I(n)Grooves Thievery reissues. Im kind of scared to open them since I already know that at least Richest will be warped. I appreciate that Thievery's people replied to my emails and eventually did what they could do by replacing them with sealed copies. Still, I think Thievery has learned a valuable lesson(too late in my opinion) about where they should outsource their music for vinyl mastering and reissuing. They probably should of stuck with the original format of the original releases, but maybe next time, look into a reputable company like Light in the Attic Records, they are doing it right these days.

well i got a replacement copy of this lp.. and that one was warped too.. in multiple places on the second disc...
such a bummer.. had been looking forward to owning their albums for about 10 years or so now.. prob the artist i've listened to the most in that span.

if you are thinking about buying this pressing.. i'd avoid doing so unless the retailer you're buying from has a good return policy.

Vinyl C/D of mine has a ridiculous warp. Where the hell was the quality control on this release?

Vinyl #1 was highly warped. Side D on vinyl #2 was pressed off-center, causing sound distortion when played. Sadly had to return it to the record store since Until the Morning is my favorite song and was unbearable to listen to on this pressing.

There's actually a typo in the track labeling. Basically the track labeling for all sides of the record is wrong. Side A only has three tracks. Therefore, Side B has Interlude, Omid (Hope), All That We Perceive, and Un Simple Histoire (A Simple Story). Side C has Meu Destino (My Destiny), Exilio (Exile), From Creation and The Richest Man In Babylon. And Side D has Liberation Front, The State Of The Union, Until The Morning and Resolution.

Following on from from their first two albums the Richest Man in Babylon continues on the same theme. Here you will find rich, down tempo, dubby, warm grooves that sound like they are from all over the globe. If you like anything else by Thievery Corporation then you won't be disappointed.
