    If people are posting reviews of represses from 2019 or 2022 shouldn’t they have their own listings. Is every vinyl version of this merged?

      My copy sounds very good. Disc 2 are a little warped. My copy is from USA but quality control and packing is poor. Both disc are a lot of dirty, washing are necessary. And inner sleeves, only paper? Impulse, please make your vinyl like Acoustic Sounds.

        May 2023 repress. Has Download card. Pressing on my copy is good, some small clicks but obscured by the music. Wish this was a more dynamic recording given the musical content, the warmth of Vinyl playback is preferable to me and the $23 usd for 2 discs with nice cover is fair. 9/10 for music

          No digital download card included in my 2022 repress.Vinyl is flat and reasonably quiet. Label great. Hole centered. Outer cover is solid.

            I found a copy with the productcode: 0602567364320
            It also says that it's released in 29/03/2018.

            Can i trust on it that this is the good quality version?

                Agree with comments here that pressing is bad. Great music no doubt. Mine copy is also warped too.

                  Any word of a repress? Seems to have been out of print for a while now.

                    Just wondering, do the spines of modern Impulse records still have the classic orange + black Coloured as the ones from the past?
                    • iang1978's avatar
                      Yes, not a good pressing. C1 - my favourite track - skips a lot on mine, straight out of a sealed copu, yet there isn't a blemish to be seen. Some achievement with barely 14 minutes to the side.
