Picked up a sealed black vinyl version: badly warped. Returned and ordered the blue.

Amazing box edition and pressing. One detail is the inner-sleeve, Ultra-top quality like the Mofi Original Master Sleeve but even more gross. Sound in the latest black edition (purchased in boomkat summer'19) , for audiophile people is quite quite good. This is the kind of record that i expect when i pay around 80€.

Packaging and music on the cd set is top of the shelf stuff. Get this just to have Haruomi's Original BGM track 15 minutes of pure ambient bliss (very much along the lines of Structures from Silence era Steve Roach). Nonetheless most of the music here is impossible to find in the US even decades later(sign of how cultured our country really is!).

I picked up the 3XLP (plain, black vinyl version) and it sounds incredible. Carefully inspected each side and they're all flawless. Plays without any additional noise. Each disc appears completely flat too. Very happy with this release!

Both black and blue version are being repressed, hopefully they will fix the pressing issues...

large, visible scratch that affects play on track 3 of the A side (black vinyl version). also the center labels on the b side are pretty gnarly - raised, wavy, etc. other than that it sounds great so far, don't have a problem with surface noise at all. just an awesomely curated collection. hopefully i'll get a replacement for the first record.

Black version sounds excellent all the way through; no issues whatsoever. Definitely seems like the way to go on this one.
