          Truly a masterwork of house music. It manages to be simultaneously beautiful and haunting, joyous and cynical. An absolute must listen.

            No vinyl? Please someone release it. This needs to be on wax.

                So unfortunate that this doesn't have a vinyl release or even a cassette.

                    Greatest album I've heard. As stunning today as it was in 2009.

                      text from site page....
                      The audio on the 2014 CD is identical to the 2008 first edition and subsequent represses on Mule Musiq. There are no plans for a vinyl edition because the bass "spatialization" effects that give many of these recordings their sonic character are incompatible with vinyl mastering techniques..
