      Amazing quality, one of my favorite albums. What I don't like is Simon releasing these limited editions again and again, now there's a translucent blue version on Bandcamp, still 153 left when writing this.

          So, this being the 2nd Shpongle album that sees a vinyl re-release, I'm happy to say it's everything I could have asked for, and a little more.
          The packaging is quite similar to "Are You Shpongled?", though not quite as thicc. It's a beautiful gatefold, with a textured outer sleeve, that feels like canvas. Lettering is embossed and has a metallic finish to it. In it are 2 vinyl records, that are clean and show no sign of warp or wobble when playing.
          The gatefold also holds additional pages, that contain liner notes and graphics, all very slick and clean.
          And the music? Well, I'm sure pretty much everyone getting this re-release is already familiar with the record, but for the uninitiated: this is some of the most beautifully textured electronic music out there. Mixing chants and world music elements with all sorts of acoustic and electronic instruments, while not forgetting about his Psy roots, Simons Posford shows his skills in not only being psychadelic, but also in composing some catchy tunes. The production is excellent, as is the audio quality of the vinyl.
          I feel bad for the fans, who didn't manage to get a copy this time around. Hopefully future releases will have a 1-2 records per customer restriction, to cut out scalpers.

            While the shipping cost for those of us in the states was kinda beat, totally worth every penny.

            This is a deluxe release that truly feels deluxe. Hoping that Shpongle continues down the line and puts out the next two releases in a similar format.

                    This album is so good it is "Inexpressible" to put into words. This music will stay relevant for eternity!!! The packaging looks so well done. Using a canvas style cover to add that realistic look to Raja's paintings makes this a complete work of art. That embossing touch with the text is just perfect for this release. Pick this up ASAP... If you don't pick this up now you will regret it later.
