How can the people who reissued this have even listened to the vinyl? It’s so bad and completely ruins the listening experience.

i can recommend the cd version of this reissue, the record is very noisy.

you can hear the music was recorded to tape, other than that there's nothing wrong with the material. no flat sound or bad mastering either, dynamic and non-loudness war actually.

The quality of both the source material and vinyl pressing of this reprint are exceptionally poor; ravaged by surface noise and clicks. It should be a crime to treat such a masterpiece this badly. I would highly recommend picking up the CD release on P-Vine Records in Japan over this, as it sounds brilliant and clearly had a lot of love put into it.

As of April 2017, coughing up the money for the original pressing ($500-$1000) is currently the only way of hearing this as it was meant to be heard. What a shame.

Bought a mint, sealed new copy of the reissue on vinyl last night. Playing it now for the first time. Lots of subtle nose, inc. 'crackles' and faint 'pops' ... anyone else experience this? Its very quiet music, so all the more noticeable. I will try a thorough cleaning ...

I also bought a mint copy and confirm that it's a mediocre pressing. Lots of surface noise.

Normally i dont get geeky over such issues. This music is sheer beauty and must be in any case presented in the best quality just due respect to its aura. This is not the case. The background noise definitely affects the experience. Just put it on for the first time, fresh out the bag. Dont own the original pressing though.

Mine too. I always adjust my expectations when listening to ambient music, because I know how distracting can those clicks and pops be, but this pressing is just subpar. I'm really disappointed with this one.

I did on 1st/2nd track but after that was totally fine. Reckon a clean should sort it out.
