I've had this mysterious triple release for a couple years now and wanted to wait until I could compare to some other versions before giving my opinion. Sadly, I still do not have an original UK LP but did compare to the 2016 reissue, and original US CD. In short I prefer this triple release to both, but will focus on comparing to the 2016: Compared to the 2016, this one is more dynamic and the upper midrange doesn't feel boosted like the 2016. All the frequencies sound balanced, bass is tighter, and the vocals are set back slightly further, which give it the more psychedelic, spacious feel. In fact, I'd go as far to say that I really dislike the 2016. Lots of compression going on in that one and it sounds a tad veiled compared to this triple.

Someone said they thought this version sounded like the CD. I couldn't disagree more. The dynamics are better and the upper mids are warmer.

Noise: So it seems there are a variety of colors and I ended up with 3 marbled grays. I found the surface noise to be acceptable (I use an AT Art9 and Hana ML cartridges which are also very good with surface noise) and it is only noticeable in between songs on mine. These records are not cut hot. As a result, you have to push your gain, and this makes the ratio of surface noise:music higher. But it also gives you a more dynamic sound and sounds better at louder db. The 2016 sounds harsh beyond 70db, imo. This one sounds fantastic at 75-80db.

So, what was the source material for the main album? Who knows. In this case, I don't care, because I prefer the sound of this over both the 2016 Re and first US CD, and I sort of like the mystery behind these in a way. Side F demos are pretty LoFi and sound terrible on my HiFi system. I played that side once. They are definitely "archival" material; interesting, and happy to have them, but not a side I have any desire to play.

Pretty sure this release needs to be combined with this: https://www.discogs.com/Verve-A-Storm-In-Heaven/release/7040787

Unless I'm missing something, this is the same release as

https://www.discogs.com/Verve-A-Storm-In-Heaven/release/6704608

and should probably be combined with this entry. This entry has the correct "catalog" number (HUT 10 DJRP X LP).

I think it's common to have noise dynamics on this version, and my copy isn't the exception. But on the positive side, it's a really good record. I don't know if it's a really popular opinion, but this is one of tge best shoegaze records ever made. Butterlfy? Oh god, it's pure and a beautiful musical madness.

Why do some have the hype sticker and some say made in Germany? Are these two different pressings?

Stoked to have stumbled upon this on eBay when it came out. The demos are great to have on vinyl. They could very well have been sourced from youtube clips for all we know. Really a great call if you don't have the EP on red wax. Excellent compilation of the peak of their career.

As stated before, not the best dynamics. But if you turn up the bass a bit it's a really nice record certainly considering the price.

This is not nearly as bad as people are making it out to be. Sure I wouldn’t put it in my best ever sounding records list but I’d give it about a 7.5/10.

System: Michell Orbe SE, AT33PTG/II, Avid Pulsus, Krell amp, Spendor D7.2, Nordost cabling, Tara Labs mains leads

Any plans for a proper reissue of this? Don't want to potentially waste money on this pressing.

Happy to have this but it's is not the most dynamic record you'll hear. Thankfully the music on this album is absolutely stellar!

Some amount of digital fuzz on this one. Kinda sounds like it's coming out a boom box during some of the loud parts. Especially on The Sound, The Sea, the vocals clearly have noise from aliasing. But also for example during the transition from Virtual World to Make it Till Monday there is noise that could be just dismissed as record static, but there is no noise on the rest of Make It Till Monday, so it makes more sense if that is from aliasing.

About half the album sounds great, and it's a great album in the first place, so I'm only docking one star. Might change if I can get my hands on the original to compare.
