Very impressed with this release as far as sound goes - one of the best sounding vinyls I own! As others have commented, the practicality of the packaging is a bit disappointing but no regrets on the purchase

I also could not resist to get this release with the three unreleased (on vinyl) tracks besides the singles, i already own. I did a comparison of the soundquality of single vs. this compilation with headphones (two same turntables with the same cartridges on one mixer and R&S did a very good job, although the singles have slightly more clean trebles - well the singles are mostly cut on 45rpm, thats why, i guess.. Ironically the most obvious difference is on the track "Swim", which is cut on 33rpm on the single too. The hihat on the single has noticable more treble, than on the R&S issue.. Anyway.. Up to that point, i still recommend this R&S package! But then, theres the track "Mistress". A calm piano track. But on the R&S issue (of course, its the same song), there are a lot of crackle/sparkle sounds here and there, which Nicolas Jaar often uses in his songs and easily can be confused with pressing issues or groove defects! I am confused. Is the cutting / mastering / pressing shit? Is just my copy partially shit? Or.. Is it a crackle-remix? ;-) Really hard to say, as the next tune on the same side "Fight" also has crackling sounds, but it's identical to the digital file, i compared it with - not so with "Mistress". The tune on the 12" sounds just clean! And finally, i also have some complaints about the packaging. Although i really like the artwork overall, the sleeves are... flimsy. Especially the coloured inner sleeves already get crinkles only from looking at them. One of my inner sleeves already looked like crinkle-hell from beginning. Oh and i also got some black ringwear from a label on one outer sleeve.. By the way - my copy was sealed.

Sorry.. So much blabla.. I still think, it's awesome, that finally, there is a nearly complete Nymphs-Package available on vinyl - yeah "nearly", because on "Nicolas Jaar TRANSITION (Boiler Room Aviv RIP DJ set)", theres still a yet not available Nymphs track (A Coin In Nine Hands (Nymphs VI)) listed in the tracklist ;-)

So long.. Again.. Awesome package (still) and i hope, that i only had bad luck with my copy. I will try to replace it.

I think this release sound great and I probably wouldn't own the Nymphs tracks on this format if they had not done a compilation. I think the packaging is a bit underwhelming for me. I was expecting more of a gatefol/trifold sleeve but instead you have single sleeves (which all look a like) that are then shrink wrapped together. Holding the individual sleeves closed is a slightly annoying sticker.

For the record, the hidden track on the F Side is 'I Know What You Did' (Nymphs V), which was teased in the intro to Nico's Transition boiler room.
