mine has a little warp and very tight center hole…

I have listened to this over the years in several formats (mp3 for a long time; CD the past few years) and listening to this reissue, I swear I am hearing completely different tracks. There is so much detail and texture in the sounds and synths that I'd never picked up before. I haven't done an A/B with my CD copy on the same amp/headphone setup (probably won't), but this is really the way to hear it. Like another commenter stated, was never my favorite Aphex album, but I think I just must have been missing so much, hearing it this way definitely proves itself to be the classic its hyped to be (to me, at least).

Also, the CD adds the Girl/Boy Song EP, but the additional tracks don't make it a better album, they make it more inconsistent and larkey. The EP tracks belong on their goofy EP.

Pressing sounds great, though the artwork is slightly pixelated. Is that the case on the original pressing? (I think I remember reading RDJ did the cover in Photoshop, maybe it was always shit resolution).

Like all the other listeners here who posted a comment on this, this is a wonderful repress. Great work done and shout-out to WARP for re-releasing this classic album!

Perfect repress indeed. I had not listened to this in years, having written it off after playing the CD to death (you get too familiar with a record and loose focus I guess), but this is an essential album, so many ideas, beyond-genius programming, just sheer (weird, wicked) beauty. Play high and loud on a sunny spring morning for added effect. Best tracks: A1, A5, B2

No complaints with this pressing, sounds great - exactly as a repress should be done.

Gorgeous pressing of this record. Just how a nice 180g pressing should be.

Very influential album by Aphex Twin!

This is one seriously good repress. Flat record, no surface noise.
I don't have the original vinyl, just the cd. Have any tracks been remixed? Logan-Rock Witch has never been my favourite, but it sounds so different to how i remember it. Same goes for To Cure A Weakling Child, but that's probably because I prefer the version on the Come To Daddy ep. This was never my favourite Aphex album, but this re-issue had me enjoying it more than I have in many years. Worth buying if you don't already have the original vinyl.
