What a great album, what a beautiful repressing! I've nothing to compare it to, b/c I missed them back in the day and never picked up an OG disc or LP. But this is absolutely delicious shoegaze served up on a perfect pressing (to my ears, anyway).

Does anyone have any idea why they split the band's name on the front of the LP jacket? It almost looks like a typesetting error. Everything else about this release reflects care and quality, so I'm not sure why they would decide to do that if it was intentional. Other than that, the jacket looks more or less identical to the original. Also, the image used for the digital files and the CD version has the band's name in the bottom right corner, not split across the bottom right and the bottom left.

Record sounds wonderful. Bought this from an old radio station and still sounds great. Too bad the cover is plagued with station stickers

Runout etchings seem very similar to the original UK pressing, did they reuse the old metal stampers for this?

Oh man what an album. Glad to see via the comments it’s not a lost gem as many have taken it to their hearts. It is however definitely underrated. I love some of the changes in the songs from sounding quite sinister to something altogether more uplifting in a space of a few seconds. A very unusual and original sounding album whilst taking influence from its day from noisy shoegaze to jangly Manchester. A wonderful achievement. Still one of my favourites in my collection.

Can anybody comment on the quality of this pressing? I have not been impressed with MPO vinyl in the past three years or so and am a little wary on that account. MPO did do a great on Bob Dylan’s ‘Rough And Rowdy Ways’ it has to be said, but that may be a temporary ‘aberration’?

I received a noisy pressing, full of repetitive clicks even after Vacuum cleaning: Side A end of True Coming Dream and Little Hammer and in Side B it started in Fell from the Sun and after several repetitive clicks I just quitted to listen. I will contact the label directly as this does not seem to be a problem with my copy but a pressing problem that should affect more copies. A shame that a so nice record is affected by this.

This is the first release for 4AD in 1990, yet the catalogue nr. starts with CAD0002.
Does anyone know, what happened to (AD)0001 or why this is nr. 2 in 1990?

Nice to have this again after all these years - but why the decision to omit the original B-sides of "Barging into the presence of god" from this edition? A missed opportunity...
