      try and find one of these pre-remaster cds whenever you can. minimal compression or limiting compared to 2005 or 2019. haven’t heard the LITA cd. 2019 is the loudest i found, they all sound alright, but if you are obsessive about dynamics and compression this is the one to get

        how is the sound on this compared to previous editions? i thought the “2019 remastered” that’s on streaming services was quite loud

          If anyone wants to sell this for 30$, shoot me a message. Would be very interested.

            Is the Obi stuck on the cover when it comes out of the factory ?
            It is glued on my two copies, I have the same thing on Neuromantic from YT.

                Which is better sounding, the OG or the recent reissue?

                  I uploaded photos for this and the 2019 re-release for anyone looking to play spot the difference. Now having spent some time with both, I think it's fair to say I would be happy with either. In all honesty I’m not sure I could point out a difference sound-wise between the two. The repress is on much heavier vinyl. In terms of packaging, the colour of the sleeve does differ - but this could be due to fading over time.

                  Both offer near perfect clarity, providing no distractions for what I can only describe as quite an odd day out with Hosono. The album side-steps jarringly between euphoric elation, anxious preoccupation and discomfort ending with the somewhat ambient but completely not of this world “Air-Condition”, leaving you with the sense you’ve really been through something.

                  The song “Living Dining Kitchen” is a reference to Hosono’s recording studio LDK, set up for him by parent label Alfa as he was spending all of his time at their main studio. The output of Hosono at that time is staggering, driven by an internal force I more than suspect is reflected in this recording. Recommended, however not for the faint of heart.

                      as expensive as these are I must say LTiA does a terrific job with these reissues, there is a great interview booklet which is nice because as much as I love his music I feel like I don't know anything about Hosono himself. album itself sounds amazing.

                        I haven't compared with a LitA (nor an OG) but i have a CD from the Yen Box and this pressing sounds very good to me!
                        Packaging is top notch as usual. One remark though: my copy is a bit noisy (compared to Paraiso which is totally silent), which isn't a problem most of the time as it can be heard mostly only on chill tracks.
