Has anyone else got a version of this album with the same label number but as a gatefold? I think the gatefold may be the 2014 repress as it has different matrix runout but I can't find any information on the repress.

Don't know why so many Discog sellers are pricing this 2014 repress at GBP30-35 #rollseyes.
Pick it up at Juno, who are doing the decent thing, still retailing it at the original price, £15.75.

Warp Records: "Now that 'You're Dead!' has been out for a little over month, each of Flying Lotus' previous releases has now been repressed and are back in stock via Bleep.com - http://smarturl.it/flylo-bleep

Please anyone let us know if the "repressed" vinyl is actually a Repress. I would be surprised if Warp didn't.

Imagine that, in about 1000 years, an extraterrestrial civilization eventually finds a couple of books and articles talking about music on earth, how it was made, what were the intentions and emotions behind it, what instruments were used to make it and their characteristics, and those beings try to reproduce and recreate it. They would be playing Cosmogramma, because that's how it sounds like.
It explores the widest corners of the musical universe, and our own as humans.
In fact, if there is a group of records that represent what music is for our civilization, and that are to be broadcasted to space, with the hope that someone/something will hear it in space, Cosmogramma should be among them.

Listening to the music of Steven Ellison is a head trip. Period. Although we may have heard the sounds of Flying Lotus on Adult Swim's interludes (aka 'bumps') between the shows, he was first introduced to the followers of abstract, experimental, and instrumental hip-hop with his debut, 1983 on Warp Records' offshoot, Plug Research. Then, FlyLo showed off his skills with the Reset EP (2007) on Warp, and by 2008 the label was confident enough to backup this California producer of avant-garde beats and free-form jazzy rhythms for his sophomore LP, Los Angeles. By 2009 everyone knew his name, and although there were a few copy-cats in the alleys, no one could cut it as deep and smooth as Flying Lotus. Ellison's stumbling beats and rubbery bass lines defy metronomes and clock synced drum machines. Truly in the spirit of jazz music, Cosmogramma is an improvisational production. The synth lines sprinkle through the confetti of percussion, falling like a dandelion's florets into the dirt beneath a rolling tank of rhythms. Defying your expectations and any genre classification, Ellison's deranged psychedelia is a beautiful child playing with a kaleidoscope of plucked sound. If anything, Ellison's third full length is a lot more "jazzier" than its predecessor. With 17 tracks running a little over 45 minutes, Cosmogramma is an album with a lot of material to digest in one sitting, and begs for multiple returns. And these are definitely rewarded!
