    Someone leant me this … wish I’d kept it!

    Just so good. Genre defining/bending big melting pot of stuff all very British and straddled with beats as chunky as Geoff Capes legs

      I lost my sleeve for this release but still have the vinyl, if anyone has an empty or spare sleeve I'd love to buy it. If so, please get in touch

        I see a lot of people in the comments have problems with duplicate discs on the 3x vinyl version. When I originally bought my copy from HMV back in 1995 it had two discs the same. I tried to exchange it but they didn't have any more copies. By amazing luck I managed to find the missing disc being sold by itself in a second hand shop about 10 years later.
        So if you do buy a copy, make sure it has 3 different discs!

          Anyone selling the first LP? I received two identical LPs and LP 3 instead of LP 1, 2 & 3
          Cheers

              Love, love this album. My version has cut for life instead of the song for life that's on the digital version. Bought the 12" that says song for life but it's not the same as the one from the CD an digital version. It seems like there are versions of the full length that have Song for Life instead of Cut for Life --- true?

                This is one of the most important electronic music album of all time. Fundamental to all the lovers of electronic music. Absolute favorite. 5/5.

                  When I got my copy in 95 it was more as a must have because we were all going crackers over Open-Up which got played to death. But then one evening you stick on the whole of the album and Open Up fades into the background as you appreciate the rest of the tunes. Slow burner that's become iconic over time. Still treasure my triple although by now it's a tad fucked, clinging on.

                    If anyone is selling side A/B of this three record set, let me know? I bought it years ago on here and the person sent me sides C/D x2 and E/F only.
