      The sound is fantastic, as the rest of the KC reissues over the past years. In my opinion, this new version of the album is better than the original in some tracks (like "Into the Frying Pan" or "Larks' IV"), but in others (especially "The ConstruKction of Light") I felt that the original mix was more natural and the new one was out of place, but it's only my opinion. I wish that they had reissued also the original mix on vinyl, but, if I had to choose which one to buy, I'd still take the ReconstruKction.
      Also, the two extra tracks on side 4 are awesome!

      I gave 4 stars for the simple reason that "FraKctured" misses the first or so second of the track, as someone else mentioned.

        I wish they would release the original mix on vinyl. I can't stand when artists go back and alter past works.

          I just couldn't get in to The ReconstruKction Of Light/ The construKction Of Light but I LOVE Projekct X -heaven and earth
          (hence my combined rating of 3 stars out of 5 for this 2 disc package)
          and at time of purchase in 2021 this 2 disc release was the easiest and cheapest way for me to pick up a physical copy of that album.

          bad stuff out of the way first, yes it was improperly upsampled from 44.1 to 48khz and plays slightly too fast (its the same transfer as the Heaven & Earth mega box)

          its not such a problem with instrumental/abstract music like this as it is with vocal performances. if you haven't heard the original i don't think you'd realise there was a problem.

          so what do we have here?
          Heaven & Earth is a magnificent stew of Outside-era Bowie, Industrial, Dub, Dark Ambient and Drum & Bass stitched together by Pat Mastelotto and Bill Munyan
          Fans of Thrakattakc will love Heaven & Earth
          Fans of Killing Joke in Dub (especially disc 2) will enjoy it, it has that same vibe of a rock group being fed through a mincer.

          Its not easy for me to tell which track i'm listening to but there was a sublime moment of classic King Crimson late on in the album. it reminded me of the start of the USA album. a looped riff in a wierd time signature rattled along then Fripp played this beautiful lilting lyrical David Cross style solo over the top.
          Yet At times i was also reminded of Ministry's track reload from filth pig

          i'd recommend consuming this as a whole album, get comfortable with your choice of intoxicant , close your eyes play it loud and let the images form in your head

            Was 'Coda: I Have A Dream' omitted from the vinyl version?

              It's more than just new drums. The entire album has been adjusted in various areas. Some I like and think improve it, some I don't, and in some areas I wish he'd gone even further (like removing ProzaKc Blues entirely or at least relegating it to a "bonus" track at the end somewhere - what a terrible opener) but it certainly earns its' new cover and title.

                Stunning pressing. Superb sound quality. No ticks,pops or surface noise. Excellent packaging. Highly Recommended. Buy with confidence.

                  My copy cuts in pretty abruptly on side two at the beginning of FraKctured. I think the first half second of the track, with the mounting bass before the first guitar note, is missing from the cut.

                    VINYL-official release...Stunning package. Lovely gatefold with lyrics. Poly lined card inners. The sound quality is superb. No ticks. No pops. Inky black silence on quiet passages,and between tracks. Absolutely no complaints. 10/10
