      Great album and print, with the writing and old spooky paintings. How can you identify this from the Japanese without OBI? Perhaps it's that one?

        Just for the record, there are at least three different mastering jobs done for this record (not counting vinyl).

        - Original 2001 release.
        - 2004 re-release.
        - 2006 re-release.

        I haven't done an A/B/C on them in years but I seem to recall liking the 2004 remaster best. The 2001 release, as I recall, was a bit murky due to the band having no money and piecing the record together whenever they could. The 2004 release is still a bit rough but cleaned things up enough that it was worthwhile. The 2006 release, sadly, was brutally brickwalled. Unless you want the bonus tracks, I'd say you're best off sticking to the 2004 re-release (or the vinyl, I guess, but I don't own it and will never own it).

          Beautifully packaged using original artwork from the initial CD release, redone especially for the large vinyl gatefold format. The cream discs look really nice, and play exceptionally well for coloured vinyl. My original worries, that it was going to be full of cracks and pops or with loud surface noise like many other colour editions were unwarranted. The remaster was done especially for this reissue and is phenomenal. Crisp clean and intense. It was worth the long wait. A true quality re-release. Good job by Blood Music!
          PS: Side 4 is a side of "extra tracks", which are nonetheless essential.
