    The first six tracks seem to be shortened versions from the first two EPs, thankfully they're all available on Bandcamp.

      Bought the black reissue. Not too many noise issues except a few clicks during the quiet passages. Good bass response and not overwhelming, but poor high end response but this might be a pressing issue and not a mastering issue. Also, no download code for wav or aiff files for an album that costs $30.00, this is unacceptable (c'mon indy labels, get it togethert!!!). The cover is way too tight to hold two albums and an insert comfortably and I have mine all sitting separately inside an archival vinyl sleeve. This album as well as the other Abul Mogard releases desperately need CD reissues mastered by good mastering engineers, otherwise, Bandcamp is the way to go from now on.

        Best ambient I have heard for a while. It's a deepdive into dark, cold soundscapes with hidden spots of comfort. Dissociative stuff

          Any idea why the opaque grey vinyl limited edition is not on Discogs?

              The best compilation of 2016. It´s perfect. 10 / 10

                My sealed copy came with lots of crack noises and pops which is a shame since it's an amazing release. I'll buy another one if it turns out to be an isolated problem. Can someone confirm on this issue? Try B3 and let me know, Thanks!
