      Classic low-fi indie druggie vibes. Would be a perfect dope album as most are blissful, near-religious paeans to getting high - but be aware tracks Revolution (driving Stooges-like indie club dance classic) and Suicide are loud and discordant! Not ones for toking along to!

          really nice old-school sound. as close as to the original pressing as you can wish for. no sound-make ups, no extra equalising, no boosting up of frequencies, or CD-type of sound: TIP TOP

            The sound is ok for a reissue. Some slight surface noise here and there but not overwhelming enuff to spoil your listening experience. If you don’t want to fish out good money to get the original pressing you can consider this as an alternative.

              Fantastic sounding re-issue that provides all the sonic buzz and intensity that these guys had to offer. Great range of sounds that serve up a nice reminder of what made vinyl such a superior format. Sweet.

                This reissue is really well done. Sound is full and rich. Records are flat and quiet. In fact, all of the Superior Viaduct reissues of Spacemen 3 (Taking Drugs, Recurring, Fucked Up Children, Dreamweapon, and Playing with Fire) are excellent.

                  To my ears this doesn't sound very good. Not as good as listening to my old vinyl copy on Fire.

                    I don't disregard what everyone else has said about this reissue, it sounds really nice. Comes with a picture too which is cool. Totally recommend picking this one up if you are a fan. Great album with great sounding vibrations.

                      This release really is exceptional--far better sounding than the Taang! 2x10 inch release that I've been relying on for a while. I wonder if Jason and Sonic are finally getting paid for it?

                        This is the best I've heard a Spacemen 3 reissue sound! I think this release sounds a lot better than the Recurring reissue. That one didn't sound bad but this Playing With Fire reissue sounds exceptional. Nice spacious soundstage with good clarity and detail and decent dynamics. For one thing, the bass on this one is nice and deep and really rounds out the sound. The electronics and guitar on How Does It Feel? are really cutting and fill the room nicely, even the drums are punchy on this track. The music, overall seems like it's a higher definition than on Recurring. Now my only problem is the damn paper scuffs and small hairlines on the vinyl surface from the paper inner sleeve. The inner sleeve is also a generic white inner sleeve, not a printed inner like on the Recurring reissue, not sure if that's how the original came or not, some of you don't care about that but I mention it to those that do. Other than that the pressing is dead quiet (no surface noise, a stray click or pop here n there but you hardly notice) flat and centered. Nice full sound on this one. 9/10. I can reccomend.
