    Brilliant. One of my all time favorite albums with the two of them collaborating to create a masterpiece.

      I took a punt on this because a seller I was buying another record from had a copy going and it had to be interesting, right? Cale and Eno, come on!

      So glad that I did! This has become a firm favourite of mine and also my partner's. The artwork is so bad it's good, and the pressing is excellent to boot. 100% recommend.

        Amazing pressing of an underrated and incredible album. Sounds far, far better than the CD, I’m guessing it’s fully analog (SPARS code on the CD is AAD and it sounds very lush).
