Probably the best sounding vinyl I own. 45RPM release means even the inner tracks on each side sound amazing. There's something about this release that just sounds unbelievably tight and alive --- the clarity of the highs is simply mind blowing. I do wish it had custom inner sleeves, though. As is, comes with only standard paper ones. (Posted this comment originally on the Orange release -- but I do in fact own the black one.)

Great album. Happy to add this to the collection. This and In Decay are two of my favorite albums over the last few years.

I've noticed that my vinyl has some spots which kinda look like mold on them but it isn't dirt or anything but actually pressed in the vinyl itself. Is this intended or do I own a bad copy of some sort?

"Karova" is my favorite track of them all, but not yet released on vinyl. Another EP would be cool!

Very very good.

You will feel like an 80's serial killer, running naked on a SoCal beach.

REpressingS do not come in the gatefold as this original does. First repress was orange vinyl, current repress is black vinyl.

An absolutely amazing electronic album that's totally unique and kicks ass all the way through, every song. I had to get the vinyl, it sounds so awesome. Highly recommended, if you like it also try Arnaud Rebotini!

The cheeky Com Truise release his full-length, GALACTIC MELT, and right from the first tones of "Terminal," you're transported back to the 1980s. "VHS Sex" is like shiny Spandex stretched over a pair of supple thighs, while "Air Cal" invites you to stretch out on a Naugahyde sofa. The moodiness of "Hyperlips" packs a good bit of punch, and "Brokendate" and "Ether Drift" linger in the air. Com Truise relies almost entirely on his analogue-sounding synth pads, and while this could get tiring, the tracks stay relatively short, so that they don't overstay their welcome. But listening to the album is like playing a never-ending game of Tron, and that's not a bad thing.

Is it just me or does this play at 45 rpm? What's up with that?
