Pre ordered on amazon back in october and surprisingly, amazon actually pulled through for me (i thought the order would have been canceled when i saw upon release date the item was unavailable)...two black vinyl pressings that sounds absolutely spectacular. About time this got repressed now the only question that remains is when will horse rotorvator get the reissue treatment?

I guess that I am the unlucky one, but my black vinyl has lots of noise on the right channel. Just on that channel. Tried it on two different turntables and the problem persists. I have also noticed that the vocals on this remaster sound lower in comparison with previous versions. Anyone?'s profile picture
Both records from my copy are slightly warped but that's the only downside if I want to be picky. I'm glad I chose the black edition and not the more collectable colored ones, because the sound quality of this pressing is outstanding. i am shivering.

Exactly what StanleyBarker7230 said except my saying such got deleted by discogs again. Someone there doesn't want to lose flipper fees, I guess. Dais records just dropped SIX THOUSAND copies of this on variant colors. This one and a few others are still avaialbe on Dais' site and through many distributors. FYI

I agree, amazing record, the sound is fantastic, although it's a czekeslovacian press.

Very tempting but can anyone comment on how it sounds?

Great reissue all over! It has obviously be done with a lot of love to the detail, and I am really happy with it! A big Thanks to Dais, hope they will delight us with more Coil reissues as accurately done as this one and the ones they already released.

This is on Tower Records for $24, don't spend insane prices on this when it's not even out of stock yet.

Edit: The record is now out of stock on the site. Also, after listening to the record, I can say that while sound quality is fine, quality control is quite bad. My record played with large surface noise throughout and had fingerprints on it straight out of the sleeve.
