The best DCD album. Hands down. Perfect balance of great music and deeply important lyrics.

This album was the transition period....it has the flavor of their first album mixed with the later stuff. Don't get me wrong please, every single DCD album to me is beyond 5 stars....this one is just a little further. The last track is such an important message in our time.

4AD recently re issued all of D.C.D's albums themselves on vinyl and CD the the sound quality is really fantastic and all tracks have been re-mastered and all the artwork enhanced too id release a collectors edition of all the albums in a beautiful boxed set which has artwork card included too and a booklet of photos . I have the box set of the CD and it includes the the Garden of The Arcane Delights

Sorry, but I have to agree with those who say this is a very bad reissue. My copy has very strange and loud distortion all over the first track, I couldn't even make it past that. MPO usually does great pressings so I'm a bit perplexed - my copy of "The Serpent's Egg" also had problems (scratches from the inner sleeve). I will be sending both of these back for a refund, not going to bother with any replacement copies.

My copy definitely has a good amount of noise on side A as others have complained about. It's nothing too bad, but it's definitely noticeable on track 2 which is a bummer.

Disregard the majority of my last comment: I believe the '86 release date is for the CD only (else, 4ADs web page is just bunk)!

Do not listen to the vocal minority complaining about the low quality of the 2016/2017 reissues of the Dead Can Dance albums. I have a few of them and they sound and look excellent. Faithful to original pressings (I have a couple to compare) very clean sound on the LP's themselves. If you want to own the DcD albums on vinyl, do not think twice about buying these reissues. They are very good.

I have a US copy, and played it for the first time last night. It sounds very good, minimal surface noise and great clarity and presence and depth in the sound. If you're in the United States and you love this record like I do, now's your chance to get a fine pressing. It's pretty cheap, too, copies going for $15. I am very glad I purchased it.

MPO press seems to be terrible quality. I'm returning the second copy already. Both had similar artifacts: continuous rustle in the right channel on a few first tracks on Side A, especially obvious throughout Ascension. Plus excentricity.

Anybody else having the same or similar issues?

I'm pretty sure the US version of this is NOT pressed at MPO. My US copy does not have MPO in the deadwax. It actually looks like it is pressed at Pirates Press.
