    I received a copy today where the cover art only has part of the model's hair on it and her face is entirely missing. Is this a known version or misprint? All the thumbs here show the full face on the cover art.

      I think their music sounds better on vinyl. On CD it’s too sterile and cold. The only downside is the vinyl breaks the flow of the album! I bought my copy in a HMV store around 2010 for half price in a clear out, it’s an original pressing too!

        Holy crap. Got this one from a FB page. "It doesn't matter" DOES matter. I've never been a fan of the CB but this track is massive. I guess it's all about taste so for my taste this is an Absolute banger !!!

          Better sound than the CD, but cut too hot in my opinion which leads to distortions. The 2016 reissue sounds better.

            This album was one of the first to draw me towards electronic music. The production and mixing on this album are superb. You also get a totally pimp album starting off with the upbeat "Block Rockin' Beats" and finishing with the relaxing "Where Do I Begin" and "The Private Psychedelic Reel". I feel like this (or maybe their first album) rank among their best as their later sound is too pop oriented for me. This album, on the other hand, really draws you, taking you inside the music and that's what I love.

              the brothers were definitely tripping out when they made this album. every track is provocating you to get high, but I enjoyed this album sober anyway.
