My copy bought from the official store doesn't seem to have any number. Anyone else?

So, can you guys make up your mind - does the vinyl sound bad, good or great?

My pressing also sounds very muffled, especially side A. Over all though a very solid album!

Warning: the sound of this album is mixed or mastered in a way that puts bass range on the foreground. There is little definition in the treble range. Most of the time this record sounds muffled, especially on the first four tracks. But it gets better towards the end.
And the overall dynamic range seems pretty narrow.
In other words, the hi-res version of "Barbara, Barbara..." is totally superfluous and adds nothing to the standard 16bit version.
I wonder if the way this album sounds is on purpose. Underworld has always provided highly enjoyable mixes with crystal clear sound on all of their albums until now.

My copy didn't look to good for a new pressing, However, the sound made up for it and then some. Very clean! Also, I was expecting it to be somewhat digitized, but that's not the case. This is one amazing sounding electronic lp!

This is a great album - less focus on technology and more on the song structure. It seems to me that the Eno collaboration has rubbed off. Nerve Net Underworld style.

I've been a big fan of Underworld since the Rez days and i have to say that despite some worries after all this time this album has exceeded all expectations. My first few listens left me with some tough choices for favourites. I've always appreciated the experimental side of the band, but in the end i still tend towards their big numbers (barring Born Slippy, sorry). I Exhale harks back to their hedonistic and care-free sound, Low Burn is an slow-burning dancefloor bomb, and Nylon Strung is a nice mellow indie number, but my favourite has grown to be Ova Nova by a pretty big margin now. I don't know how to classify it except to say that it's Underworld at their peak - potent and emotive electronica with a very mellow vibe. This album gives me a lot of hope for the future of a still truly great band.

Classic Underworld stuff, but I'm not ecstatic... Expected something a bit more inspired, newer. :(
