    Insane how expensive these are now. I remember getting this during the pandemic for like $25, and even then, that was too cheap for how beautiful this was packaged. Sounds exceptional as well. Needs a repress so more people can have their hands on this

      Beautiful packaging, artwork is awsome. Really love it. The sound is very warm, full, no mistake, dynamic, soft, musical. Must have!

        Jeez Louise this is a pretentious comment section! You can actually see the crosleys

          Hands down the most beautiful artwork and packaging in my collection. Awesome pressing as well, and one of my favorite MA albums.
          A must have

            It's funny how I heard this album for the first time. I've been sitting in one of my favorite hipster craft beer bars where they usually play rock music, but on that day for some reason the bartender kept playing all sorts of electronic stuff which really pissed me off.
            After an hour or so I went up to him and asked politely to turn on something else because "I am not electronic music fan". And that moment he was like: have you heard Heligoland ? I ended up shazaming several songs in a row...I got so impressed that decided to order the vinyl the next day.
            Regarding the pressing itself, I echo the positive comments below with great pleasure! It sounds fantastic. Mesmerizing experience everytime. The amount of instruments and different sounds with its dynamics and separation will leave you speechless. And yeah, the glitter cover is so special !

              Awesome packaging and mastering. Sounds absolutely amazing. All the ways the sounds seperate and dance around is hypnotic. Who cares how big the jacket is or that it didn't come with a download card? And I'm glad they spaced it out over 2 whole discs. This would sound crummy all crammed onto one disc. 10/10

                Amazing complete package from the mastering, pressing and probably the highest quality artwork/sleeve I’ve ever owned. The glitter and raised lettering are the shit. Only downside is it won’t fit in my outer sleeves.

                The sound of this pressing rivals more expensive “audiophile” releases in my collection. Ear candy.

                  As soon as a pressing is quite good,
                  All flippers on the desk !!!! can't beleve the price for a 2018 press... good night bloody flippers...

                      My copy sounds good, and the packaging/production of this release is great. Kind of a pain having the tracks spread across 2 records but that's what you get for the extra few minutes I suppose. Also, doesn't fit in any of my outers thanks to those non-standard dimensions. Still love it though.
