I find this album horrible, as most of R. Murphy's albums. Coldly mechanised pointless technical solutions and chaotic, ad-hoc ideas as always, apart from 1-2 tracks. The "progresses" are monkeying, and there's almost no music in the songs but changes of chords and pitch, but that I wouldn't call music yet. Very overrated. Technically there's nothing new (as always) but mixture of little this and little of that but not too much of anything in order to avoid achieving a real character. The most irritating is that most of the songs are in pieces and is disturbed as usual. Vocal is OK, synth usage is acceptable but the production is extremely accidental and all the elements seems to be interchangeable and that is the worst of all. First track is one of her bests.

One man's poison is another man's delight. Some of the elements you list seem like pluses to me.

Apparently all copies of the Russian version (Take Her Up To Monto!) are faulty. The disc occasionally refuses to play at all and if it plays, the last 3 or 4 tracks have a "scratching" sound. The last tracks won't rip clean either.

Whoa...
Blown away by the audio, the sound, the bass, her voice.
So glad to see her moving towards more experimental music.
The long track on side D is pure headphone sex.

Indeed but the bass is way too cut off giving that dreaded low rumble even on relatively low volume. The vocals are very well mixed tho

Glorious album, again. Even stranger and more layered than Hairless Toys, though quite different in its approach. Any idea why the album was split into two discs? The slightly longer Hairless Toys had great sound quality on just a single record, and this clocks in at just about the max for an album (~46 minutes / 23 per side). Would have at least liked to see them bump it to 45 RPM to justify spreading the compact album over four sides of wax... Oh well, excess flipping aside, it's a beautiful package and sounds lovely.

To be honest, most of your complaints don't really apply here - the sound quality and quality control issues that you're complaining about aren't present here. "Those people" that didn't bump this to 45 RPM weren't "those people" you're complaining about based on the record I own so...

with "charge more" I meant prices for vinyl in general these days. It's nice that Juno only wants 17.68 for a double album. However, have you seen the prices the majors charge for re-releases or new vinyl these days? they are really milking it... considering the high amount of faulty records (I explained the reasons why) they throw on the market.
That said then there are labels such as "music on vinyl".. who have exorbitant prices too, but the quality is okay.

Hi, I was just about to write exactly the same thing in my review when I discovered yours:-)
The problem is that all knowledge about vinyl production is lost, thus leaving it in the hands of people who can't distinguish a damaged disk from a good one and who don't even know that you can't touch a record with your bare fingers. That's why half of the new records are already totally stained with fingerprints and thus damaged.
So how could those people possibly know that you can improve sound quality by printing it at 45rpm?
The reason why most albums are spread out on two disks is the money aspect... They can charge more! It's not about the sound, they are just milking the fact that vinyl is hip again!
By the way, the album itself is GREAT!

Should be the limited signed copy treated as a different release ? it contains also a signed picture of roisin.

I don't think it needs a separate entry. A note in the main release would be enough. The signed picture was only given to patience fans who ordered through her website, after the original signed albums were damaged in transit. Roisin kindly included the signed art print as an apology for the delay to those fans.
