The record itself sounds great like the rest of the comments point out, but I have one peculiarity about my copy. The braille sticker on the back is actually placed vertically on the right side instead of along the top like how I believe it should be. Is this a misprint of some kind that I stumbled into?

Any reason to opt for this release instead of the 2014 one? Are the channels still reversed?

Warp Records lives up to its name, as my record came just that - warped. Fortunately it does not effect the playback, just looks weird on the turntable.

I can only agree with the other comments below. This records sounds great - it's very dynamic, warm and detailed, with lots of punch, very analogue sounding - is there a chance this is AAA? As mtngchi stated, I am sure the 2018 release will be identical too, will probably pick up another copy on release.

Such a great pressing all around. Turquoise Hexagon Sun and Seeya Later actually sounds better here than on the vinyl reissues of MHTRTC and Twoism respectively in my opinion.

PS: Huh, it's sold out on Skam bleepstore, and vinyl gone from Bleep. Prices drove a bit up, I hope it gets a repress soon, cuz it's that good.

PS2: Listening back between them now, I think the Twoism mix of Seeya Later is also good in a different way, mid-range-rich and "warmer", while the Hi Scores mix is detailed and crisp.

This remaster is fantastic. It's one of my better sounding records I own actually and i'm not exactly sure why.

Excellent reissue. Cool to see the artwork in color and the braille sticker is always a nice touch. Poster is nice too. The record itself is the heaviest I have seen... You could knock someone out with this thing. Sounds great too. My favorite tracks are A1, A2, and B3.

Excellent (re)release! Wish they would do this with Boc Maxima!

Amazing copy with the channels properly sided. Apparently mixed by the band members themselves from the original DATs. Been waiting for this for quite some time and could be arguably the ultimate version that BoC originally intended to release. Highly recommended and a steal if you love BoC.
