Just like the fellow before me, just the absolute best that you can hear this - imaging and dynamics can't be beat !

Just get it this week 2020 vinyl edition. Played in Jadis tube amp. In comparison with 2001 Cd edition sounds luminos and clear, dynamic. A classic an etern must have. Long life to indietronic wave artist.

One hour and forty-five minutes of classic uplifting downtempo bliss. Ahhh, with refreshment.
We know relaxation is in mind, simply based on the cover artwork. This record should be the first or the last album played in desire for the day.

Anthems without lyrics. 

It's the kind of glory music that gets us moving and keeps us motivated, while simultaneously relaxing and rejuvenating the mind. The presence of smooth rhythms blend with instilled melody and free-flowing beats that place only positivity in the front of our minds while listening.

Accessible. Powerful. Authentic. 

This triple LP set is special, not just because of the eventual repressing of the vinyl itself, but because of the featured fullness of Schnauss' work at the time, as no song dates later than 2002. This set of songs establishes the endless harmony and flawless nature of Ulrich's true intentions. Rarely have debuts from artists ever been so coveted and influential over a timeless spectrum. But we always knew that anyone who made this music was heading to the greatest places.

My gratitude goes out to all the artists, designers, and engineers involved in this revival project. The long-awaited gift of song is greatly appreciated. The solid remastering, decadently expanded artwork, and additional music not found on original releases has me in a heavenly heightened state.

Just a general warning about buying this or any LP with a jacket made of thin card stock, especially with overseas merchants: Album jackets for the Ulrich reissue series definitely use the common, cheesy-thin card stock. They'll easily get "dinged" and/or creased during rough transit, if the seller is cheap and uses an LP mailer with no or insufficient reinforcing.

For example, AVOID BUYING from that UK corporate bulk merchant "rarewaves" or any of their variation sellers (they don't sell on Discogs, but they do sell heavily on that infamous auction site). Sure, their prices are the lowest on that site, but you'll live to regret ordering records from "rarewaves". I've ordered other reissues from "rarewaves", and each time I've received battered parcels, due to lazy, cheap packing. Their warehouse stuffs records into stock LP mailers with absolutely inner protection or stiffening reinforcement. Your brand new, pricey import LPs will arrive in sh^tty shape.

No matter what platform you use, stick with sellers with good f.b. and sellers closer to your location/country. The farther they're from you, the more likely and the longer that they'll endure abuse. This is especially true during the pandemic, when postal facilities are experiencing constipated flow, and postal facility employees are working under duress, now more likely to handle your precious parcels with more callousness.

This might be the best-sounding vinyl record I've ever heard

Adding my two cents to the bright side. Did not have a chance to listen everything this weekday, but at least one disc of my copy sounds superb. Clean, pristine, airy, transparent, ethereal. Sometimes too clean, I would prefer more rawness :-) No noise, no clicks. That's what I've expected from Ulrich!

The music is excellent, mellow Schnaussoid melodies and great extra tracks, I actually like them more than the original album now that the last track begins on side C! ;)
My copy was perfect when it comes to the vinyl quality, no complaints. So far, pure perfection.

However, the cheap inner sleeves can't be taken in or out of the triple gatefold cover without great struggle/risk of damage, and considering that these awkward triple covers need a free table of 2 metres to unfold w/o destroying them in the first place - and you are supposed to store one of them in the middle? It's just a disaster waiting to happen.
No. I don't like these covers whwn they contain more than one LP. And, No. I don't like inner sleeves that don't fit in such covers.

Be warned, folks. This record is truly dangerous. It is the attack of the killer marshmellows from outer space. It makes you feel like HAL 9000 as Dave is taking his revenge: you are forced to literally feel your braincells going softly, dying one by one as they are mercilessly being drowned in a well-arranged symphony of artificial sweeteners. Your consciousness becomes reduced to a two-dimensional, happy vegetable state by force. The tyranny of total harmony. A dire confrontation with absolute confrontationlessness. This hardcore-version of oochy-coochy should be made available on prescription only. There is one positive aspect, though: this music makes you realize that to feel a bit of pain is actually necessary for your health. I needed to heal my brain using one of the harder early UR records after the experience.
