Such a good album, as soon as Time Melts kicks in your off, all the tracks work really well as a whole, Real Life Ceremony the other stand out track for me. 7th Plane and Clementine are Lukes best stuff.

As others have already stated, you can buy the box set of 7th plain stuff covering Yellow Wise Rug, 4 Cornered Room and tracks from a few other bits and bobs for a good price.

Not a repress but Warp have released a boxset of The 7th Plain Chronicles I-III which has most of these tunes and a lot of others as well

This is a phenomenal album! First listen I thought not bad. Then the more you listen to it the deeper you get sucked in and you hear more layers to it. Some of the songs you just wish they went on for longer. "The needs of the many" as an example. Wow top stuff.

Probably the best record Luke Slater has ever done and most likely ever will. Beautiful IDM/electronica/techno album. Prices are a little crazy on this. Found mine for less than a tenner on ebay a few years back, just keep your eye out!!. GPR did some cracking stuff back in the early /mid nineties, Black Dog, Radioactive Lamb etc. A great sunday afternoon chill listen with the paper!!

Luke slater trounces so many others who try too hard, like global communications etc. I can recall buying Model 500 records from upastaris at Jelly Jam sooo many years ago now. Luke was there at the beginning and will most likely be there at the end.

Had a copy on cassette for years finally picked up the vinyl as well. Still sounds amazing in 2016

this album is a complete opposite of his x-tront series. i bought this upon release thinking id get more of the same, and was totally surprised at how different it was. i wasn't disappointed and used several of the tracks for DJing.

A quality album top to bottom (terrible cover aside!!!) - 8/10

What about a repress of this beauty? It would be high time.
