    As advertised. Each track has its own unique quality of silence!

      I’m a performance artist in the midst of a lifelong performance based on this record.
      I purchased it soon after its release, and it will never be opened and played, thus ensuring that the efforts of all involved will be honored to the ultimate extent.
      Perfect execution of intention.

        Stéphane Rives totally nailed it with the mastering of this one. The pure analog clarity achieved through my $10,000 tube preamp will tell them that vinyl is superior to CD. Kill for a copy.

          More of a novelity item than anything and a funny one to boot. Compiling silences directly from varied vinyl pressings opposed to sourcing masters (that would even be more funny) just makes this release one you simply cannot take seriously. And why? Smile, read the liners and listen to the crackle.

          Waste of resources? Oh yea!

          For hipsters and posers? Au contraire. Just don't take this thing seriously, at all. Reminds me of The Nothing Record Album in many ways: and if you buy this album you can have a bit of the Nothing Record Album included! WOW!

            What a decadent waste of resources. The perfect record for poseurs though.
