    Top quality album. Vinyl copy sounds much better than any copies of this found on digital streaming services. Definitely a lot more dynamic, a richer, fuller sound that adds to the listening experience. Highly recommended.

      I love this record. I have to say the pressing is not the best, lots of noticeable pops and clicks in the quiet parts. I bought this directly from Bandcamp and am a little bummed the pressing is not great but I do love the music.

        Excellent trancy tracks on four record sides. Having read about clicks and pops, the records had to endure ultrasonic cleaning before the first spin and played flawless. Helps, when played with equipment able to go down to 20 Hertz and a little bit below ;)

          Barkers record is outstanding, but pressing is not quite good, a lot of hiss and crackle on a mint record.

            Great album! I like every track. Love this particular techno style.
            I gave it only 4 stars because both records contain a lot of clicks and pops (album bought from Bandcamp) that ruin the overall experience.

              The album artwork is what really makes this record. Love the dedication to graphics that the experimental scene has. Fits well with the music and will really stand out in any collection.

                some of the tracks remind me of sounds and ideas in Theme From: Its All Gone Pearshaped

                  This is one of the few if not the only record were I love every Single Track!

                    Bought from phonica and no issues with the pressing on a pair of technics with an A&H mixer.

                    Absolutely wonderful record.

                    The highlights are Hedonic Treadmill, Models of Wellbeing...

                    And of course the final one - Die-Hards Of The Darwinian Order. Boy oh boy when those rides come in...

                      My experience with the vinyl version of this was fantastic (and to be honest I've never had issues with any Ostgut Ton releases, incl. Ben Klock, Steffi, Efdemin, etc.). No pops or clicks, very flat. It also brings out some dynamics and separation that I don't hear in the digital version (via Tidal lossless). Recommended.
