Anyone care to comment on the quality of this LP reissue on Dirter? I'm debating whether to get a sealed copy of the reissue or try to find a NM copy of the original pressing. I think I would actually prefer original packaging and I don't care about the bonus material, but I am looking for the best playback experience.

Really great Arcane Device feedback style album. Probably the best from NWW discography.

Does the 4 LP set have different material than this 3 CD set?

Steven Stapleton's accidental effects pedal feedback loop that responded to nearby body movement, leading to him 'playing' the pedals like a theremin, creating a series of six side-long drone pieces in the process. An in-depth review is somewhat pointless: while the bassier throbs of the opening piece, and airier dynamics of the second bonus track on the 3CD version add tonal variety, overall the mood here is dark, sinister, choking. It's the sort of dark ambient music you'll want to get lost in, or trudge through once and never return to again, depending on your taste. You probably know which category you fall into already.

Stapleton wouldn't return to this style again until the 21st century, when he would show more interest in drone. At the time of its release, it stood out dramatically in his catalogue of noisy tape collage and free improv. Nevertheless, it quickly became his biggest selling album, and unsurprisingly, given just how effective it is.

Wow. Four LPs of Lilith's Sollioquys. I'm not sure if this is overkill or the summation of all wishes fulfilled.

One of Steven Stapleton's masterpieces. In its own ways it's a hypnotic suggestion, and with repeated listens deafens you to all preconceptions of experiments in droneology - it's not just random noise folks. If this was an abstract of mythology from the Norse realm it would be Odin. One-eyed, wisdom beyond mortal understanding and with a dark and foreboding omniscience that keeps the creatures before the rainbow.

Possibly Stapleton's crowning achievement and one of my favorite NWW releases. I picked up this 3LP set at the ripe old age of 19(at Chicago's "The Quaker Goes Deaf" record shop - RIP) and proceeded to have my head blown away. An absolutely essential classic of dark ambient / drone music. 10/10!

is there any surefire way to discern this edition from the Jnana repress? in any case, masterful album and arguably the finest piece of drone / ambient ever recorded.

One of my favourite's ambient album. First two discs were already known as Six Songs to Lilitu, six great slowly rotored tracks. But the third disc, with two songs, is the real crystal music. Highly recommended, especially to be played at maximum volume.
