This pressing is excellent. Vinyl is dead quiet and the sound is sooo good. This is a masterpiece and got the treatment it deserved! It is crisp and punchy. Very happy with this release. [ Playing this using an Ortofon 2M Black cartridge ]
Anyone else have this pressing, but the vinyl labels are light blue? Everything else matches up. My matrix is warp lp 55 b2 da mont. It was shrink wrapped with no hype sticker or braille. There is an MP3 download cord. Says Made in EU with the 1998 and 2013 dates. The record labels are light blue with the skram logo. Thank you!
This classic album has a whole other dimension on vinyl. Pressing is pretty much perfect ... flat and dead silent. I have listened to this digitally probably 60-70 times (original release CD, ripped CD via server, streaming via Tidal), and the vinyl has a crispness and depth that I had hoped would surpass the digital version (but often doesn't for many 90s and 00s electronic releases recorded digitally). I can't say I won't ever listen to this digitally again, but if I'm at home, I will only listen to this on vinyl from now on. Recommended.
This really set the stage for Boards of Canada to glow up and get some well deserved recognition. I can't name a single bad track on this album because they're all so well done. I've yet to see such consistency in any other artist or record.
Landmark Electronica Album! So pleased to add this to my collection, but a question. Does anyone else know why the final track from the CD release, "Happy Cycling" wasn't included on any of the vinyl pressings? Is it a limitation of the vinyl setup or what? [ANSWER] Happy Cycling appeared on vinyl in the 1998 "Peel Session" 12" "single" along with alternate versions of Aquarius and Olsen.
