Seems to be a lot of complaints about this vinyl pressing. It is unfortunate, really. Electronica usually sounds reliably good on vinyl, even 33 1/3 RPM LPs. I don't own this record, but let me tell you, the CD of this is plenty loud and dynamic sounding. Blasphemy, I know.

Apparently the title of this album were the last words Rick Smith’s father said to his mother when she expressed her trepidation of living on without him. If that doesn’t give listening to the album extra dimension I don’t know what does.

agreed with the below comments, something's up with Side A but imo the only real 'flaw' is that "If Rah" seems notably quieter than the rest. otherwise it doesn't sound too bad, a little muffled but not really major. Side B sounds perfect. great album anyway.

I think the pressing is good, no noise and good dynamics. However the volume levels are inconsistent. I have to raise the volume for If Rah. Volume is low on this pressing and it's probably the album I have to turn my knob furthest for, but the sound quality holds up. Jacket and inner are thick and nice quality.

Its a great album but unfortunately sounds foggy, muffled. There is something between, like in the cover picture.
I also have to turn up my gain until top. (OM 40)

My pressing sounds great. It needed to be cleaned but I don't have any muffled sound issues with mine.

My copy bought from the official store doesn't seem to have any number. Anyone else?

My pressing also sounds very muffled, especially side A. Over all though a very solid album!

The sound of this album is mixed or mastered in a way that puts bass range on the foreground. There is little definition in the treble range. Most of the time this record sounds muffled, especially on the first four tracks. But it gets better towards the end.
And the overall dynamic range seems pretty narrow.
In other words, the hi-res version of "Barbara, Barbara..." is totally superfluous and adds nothing to the standard 16bit version.
I wonder if the way this album sounds is on purpose. Underworld has always provided highly enjoyable mixes with crystal clear sound on all of their albums until now.
