Ah, glad I finally read the reviews here because I thought I was going crazy and caused the horrendous sound on disc 1 (A is horrible)

Might be a stupid question but...
I don’t get it. How can I identify the release date of my copy?!. Haha

I have a different variant on all sides. I do have the etched MPO & Matt At Alchemy. Mine is also stamped with the MPO logo and runout etched on side 1 is 19 146777. How many variants are there? None of the sides of mine are listed in the identifiers above.

This pressing sounds fantastic. Sounds are really crisp and dynamic, definitely worth it!

How can the 2021 Re-Issue be distinguished form the previous Re-Issues (i.e. 2013 and 2018)? Are the sleeves identical?

Any one know whether the latest new copies for sale are any better. My was bought new a few years ago but has the pressing problems others have mentioned. A shame, as it's one of the best albums of all time

Looks like some of Aphex's discog are being reissued again with Aphex Twin - Richard D. James Album in Dec 2020 and this album as well. Any comments as to how this pressing sounds? The RDJ album I linked sounded fantastic, so I hope this one is as great as that one (although they are mastered by different people).

My copy has some crackly noise areas in Ageispolis that shouldn't be there. Tried cleaning in case it was factory dust,. doesn't help.
It's a dope album to have on vinyl but I'm pretty bummed about the quality of this pressing.

Just put this on for the first time. I had the original CD issue I had to get from a DJ record pool because it was difficult to get on early release. This LP on moderate powered speakers and an AT turntable sounds wonderful. I hear the analogue hum of the synths and even the drum sample in "We are the Music Makers' is so much more pronounced than the CD.
