A must have album. Finally managed to get a copy. Stunning composition, it lets you float on clouds and startrails. Pressing is of good quality, quiet and balanced.

It was about 10 or so years ago I first saw Sam DJ'ing at Cosmic Slop in Leeds, forever awed with his selections and mixing skills. Had the pleasure of meeting him a few times during them nights in Leeds as well, never did I think he would go onto write and produce 3 altogether different but stunning records.

Stellar record, super clean but you get the nice pops and crackles for the start of each side which really makes it feels personal and warm, a lot of love went into this and you can feel it throughout. <3

This is simply stunning. The music and the pressing. Felt like they were in the room with me - so detailed and quiet.

Another 3500 copies on the way according to the distributor...don't overpay.

Is Side A on anyone else's copy pressed off-center? Mine is, at first I thought it was an intentional effect but then I saw that the grooved area was actually wobbling back and forth with each turn of the LP. Side B is OK. It is quite noticeable on those long drawn-out notes and passages unfortunately :-\

I can only assume that I have the EU edition of this given that it is where I am, but I have not been able to find any distinctive markings to tell for sure (between US and EU editions). I have the standard weight, black vinyl edition with die-cut gatefold sleeve. Pressing is also noisier than I'd like (stray ticks even though the vinyl is spotless).

Am I the only one that has a locked groove between the 8th and the 9th movement? Had to lift the needle and then drop it again so that the 9th would start. Was that intended or is it just a pressing mistake? No issue in that though. Adds more mystery to this not-so-easy-to-sink-in album. Great pressing! Worth waiting for the july repress.

This is a tough album to rate tbh. Pressing sounds great, but maybe this is aimed at a more sophisticated listener than me. Reminds me a little of the movie The Master where critics loved it, but I didn’t enjoy it as much. Anyways I’ll still give it 5 stars because I love when people take chances and experiment, which this definitely does. And much respect to Pharaoh Sanders

Holy crap. This pressing is fantastic. Awesome packaging and the record sounds so good. Don't skip out on this one—one of the year's best.

I’m probably the only one in the entire universe who is irritated by the repeating fragment throughout this record. I’m reallly trying to like it but struggling with it.
