The mastering is decent, but the pressing is average at best. Plenty of pops and ticks on the first side, especially on Maiden Voyage. My copy went thru the spin clean four (!) times and this helped a little, but did not completely fix the issue. ... Vollständige Rezension ansehen

Yeah, just got my copy from Amazon today. A1 is noisy at the beginning. Crackly.

Crackles elsewhere too. Mine is definitely not a quiet pressing.

I had two copies, and the second one is better. First one had a couple visible defects causing a repetitive crackle on B3. However, the second copy is clean (ticks and pops here and there though) and is a keeper. It sounds great, and I have no problem ... Vollständige Rezension ansehen

Fantastic album for fans of the Mwandishi trilogy. I'd say this one is most like Sextant, which makes sense since it was recorded around the same time. Needs a vinyl reissue -- good project for MOV!

Get the item with UPC 081227870614 for a much better pressing.

I gave my copy two rounds in the Spin Clean, and it's nearly perfect. Good pressing, great bargain.

Get this one, not 081227520311.

Great reissue, one of the flattest records I've ever seen. Sounds great too. Artwork is excellent.

Excellent, quiet pressing, and nice gatefold with cool photos. Overall very pleased.

It took me a while to enjoy this album, but it has really grown on me. It's classic Aphex. The whole thing is great.

Kind of a missed opportunity. Would like to see a 2xLP reissue with the full-length album versions.
hat eine Rezension gepostet von Steven Rutter* & Kirk Degiorgio - Braconian Beta . 3 months ago
Fantastic release, possibly the best one on Firescope! Rutter is a talented guy, but his own releases, while good, are occasionally a little too dark. Kirk Degiorgio helps here by creating a very positive, sleek, uplifting sound. Every track is great.

What's the verdict on pressing quality? Will it see a wider release?

Needs a vinyl reissue! C'mon! Maybe MOV could do it? Along with Dedication and The Piano?

The back cover on this CD is so great. The photo of course is from the original release. But there is something just spooky as hell about those track titles over the dark background with the ghostly pink image of the band.

The mastering sounds excellent and alive, but my copy is not the quietest record I've ever heard, especially for the price. There is some occasional noise, mainly ticks and pops, that did not go away after a run thru the spin clean. The noise is most ... Vollständige Rezension ansehen

The text on the rear of the sleeve is definitely NOT crisp. In fact it's quite blurry.

Not sure why something like that is hard to get right.

Bad pressing. I've had two (update: FOUR) copies; both had scratches. The second one (the copy I kept) is slightly warped. Side 2 is slightly off-center. I can deal with that, but worst of all, the sacred ballad "Namia" is distorted beyond belief. I ... Vollständige Rezension ansehen

My copy was a complete mess. Record 1 was warped, with side 2 being very off-center. Side B1 had some residue that couldn't be removed with a Spin-Clean, and caused a staticky noise on play. I returned it and luckily found a new copy of the 2010 ... Vollständige Rezension ansehen

Sounds awesome. Flat, deep black vinyl. It's not easy to do ambient on vinyl -- any noise can really get in the way. But somehow they did it right with this one. Artwork is perfect, though I kind of wish it came with the "ON LAND" commentary that ... Vollständige Rezension ansehen

Probably my favourite album of all time by anyone, but this is not an audiophile pressing. This is a case when it really might have been better for a 2xLP package. There is sibilance on Only the Wind, my favourite song of theirs. Other tracks like To ... Vollständige Rezension ansehen

My god, this is a brilliant album. I bought it on CD when it came out, but had never heard it on vinyl til now. It takes me back to the fall of 1993 when I was too young to really understand much of the content, but I loved it anyway.

The record sounds good, but there is some sssevere sssibilance on It Always Comes as a Surprise, one of their best songs. I can tame the sibilance a little by lowering the 8 kHz on my EQ. That helps.

How's this pressing? I saw this in a shop and noticed that the cover art is not well done.

Wondering about the sound quality.

Excellent reissue. The record sounds great and the jacket is very nice.

While I was listening, I couldn't help but be touched by the rather poignant photograph of Tom on the back of the lyric sheet.

This album would be a great opportunity for an MOV 2xLP reissue with full (album)-length versions of these tracks.

Great album, acceptable pressing if you can get it cheap. There are some ticks and pops even after two cycles thru the spin clean. Nothing serious or repetitive, but I don't know why it's so hard to make a good piece of vinyl.

Great album, but sadly a pretty noisy pressing. I don't know if the colored vinyl has anything to do with that. Unfortunately this one isn't available on black vinyl.

That is how I discovered Bruton (and library music) -- by googling the music I heard in that movie.

One of the best musical discoveries of my life!

Pretty good pressing. Mine needed a deep cleaning, and even then there were still a few ticks and pops. Side 4 has a minor edge warp. Oddly, the center labels are susceptible to water damage, as I noticed after using the spin clean. So keep water off ... Vollständige Rezension ansehen

Great album. I like the Pat Metheny "San Lorenzo" sample on Up To Rise.

And does Thermal Explorer sample "Rain" by Bob James?

Not my favorite Herbie album, but no matter. This isn't just a great pressing -- it's a great package. The jacket is nice; they included a reprint of the original insert (in Japanese); and the record label matches the original pressing. The vinyl is ... Vollständige Rezension ansehen

I agree it may not be fully cohesive, but it's the cheapest way to get anything on vinyl from the first two albums. Seems like it anyway.

Crummy pressing. My copy was very scuffed and very off-center. Artwork is third or fourth generation. The label looks like it was printed with an inkjet.

Pretty good pressing. A couple ticks and pops here and there, but overall, it's good. If this really is a bootleg, it's good one. It's flat and perfectly centered. Not warped.

Five-star reissue -- excellent pressing. Four stars for the music; it really kind of runs out of steam during the last couple tracks. Record sounds great though.

Excellent pressing. Both records are flat and came out of the jacket pristine; I didn't even need to dust them!

The sound is great too. This is my favourite Ozric album.
