If one needs a remaster then one should approach the original recording guru, and that is exactly what has been done. Solid. Personally, I just cannot get used to this album sans Forbidden Colours, a singular work of inspired genius. I prefer my Canadian original Cinram version, it just has more.

This edition released in 1991. Different sound stage and higher output levels.

Autumnal melancholy awhirl with blowing leaves across gray silvery songscapes that resonate and sparkle.

I decided to buy all Sylvian's vinyls (I own the CDs). To me, it's an excellent sounding repress except some crackles at the end of "the boy with the gun" and "waterfront" plus here & there as well. But globally very good.

Buying in 2021, and it sounds incredible. Sad to hear of others having issues with their copies but mine is one of the quietest records I own. I own the original, the remastered CD, and tape... and this sounds the best of the bunch.

I still have and play my original UK copy bought when it came out. I could do with a new copy as-mine has a small amount of noise although nothing unlistenable. I looked after my copy over the years. This could do with some kind of reissue and proper remaster package. One of my desert island albums I couldn’t live without and still regularly play. Testament to its timeless nature.
A warm enveloping mind hug that’s by turns strange and comforting, woody tones and acoustic jazz/ambience/art pop and subtle ballad work all congeal to make a beautifully autumnal sound palette that once heard is difficult to forget. So many references to so much 20th century art, poetry and music it makes your head spin. Every time I listen to it I hear and feel something new or different.
In short a timeless classic.

I had had two copies now - the first one was permanent low crackle. The second copy is actually warped with much less crackle: great! Real care and attention given to this masterpiece, huh?! Let's see if returning two will mean third time lucky. Fortunately it's Amazon returns which are less hassle.

I own this record from release and go back to it from time to time. It is an excellent work and a great pressing, still free surface noise or any plops noise after all these years.
Great dynamics and stage, in particular the sound of the voice of Mr. Sylvian and the Double Bass are really impressive. Get a Near Mint copy of this record and forget any remaster/new release.

I have this issue, and the cover displayed here is NOT the cover from the Canadian issue VL 2471, which looks exactly like the UK first issue.
