I own an original UK black pressing so this will be a comparison after listening to both of them.

The original was for some one of the worst records they'd heard. I'd heard a friends copy and I can believe it. There were claims of it being... See full review

Bit of a gem this one.

My copy sounds fantastic. Exactly how you want a record to sound.

I must be lucky as I have no complaints with mine. Sounds fantastic! No such severe crackle as others have mentioned. Not a signed copy btw.

This sounds fantastic, it has to be said.

Considering the other reissues say 24-bit remaster, I am guessing this is 16-bit?

I haven't heard the other 24-bit remasters so I can't compare... Very curious to know, but not enough to pay for a copy... See full review

Went with the clear version because the other versions seemed to have too many issues, be that sound related or even the colour not being right... With the clear, you can't go wrong it seems. Looks fantastic!

As for the sound, there is definitely... See full review

Anyone interested in the fantastic music of Air France can watch my little review doc on them that I made.

Very relieved that this sounds good.

Tip: Take it out of it's original PVC sleeve and put it in an anti-static sleeve. Thick PVC is not good for vinyl.

I paid $125 for a VG+ copy - because i'm in the UK I also had to pay $30 and then around £20 for the customs tax so looking at around $200 or so.

I can only speak for my VG+ copy, buying vinyl for sound quality is always a gamble, and at this price... See full review

A nice glossy cover with embossed text. Like the DYLHN/He release, the size of the sleeve is quite small and considering there is no inner sleeve (shocking), you're best going for a Nagaoka style sleeve as a bigger sleeve will hang out of the cover.... See full review

So after comparing user reviews here (the two previous reviews) and the ones on the Indie Exclusive Maroon version it was clear the Maroon pressing had a better rating so I decided I was buying that one. Turns out the seller I bought from sent me this... See full review

Excellent quality gatefold. Poly-lined inners too.

My discs have some surface noise crackling, for quieter songs such as Birds & Ships and Ingrid Bergman this does detract from the enjoyment.

As already mentioned, the design of this LP alone is incredible. The liner notes are brilliant.

It's really cool that PSB have made a statement against loudness. Just from a benchmarking point of view when it comes to comparing it to other LPs that... See full review

This release can be identified by the lack of an MP3 download card when mint.

I'm a big fan of the artwork on this album. The quality of the cover is fantastic too.

The discs come in poly-lined inners which is wonderful to see.

An interesting cover design. I prefer the light blue cover as seen as the default or the plain white inner for minimalism. The interchangeable covers sit quite loose in the cover, and given the size of the cut out, it's quite delicate as you'd expect.... See full review

For a 2xLP non-gatefold this is a nice job. Cover is strong. Am also a big fan of the artwork.

Inners aren't polylined so get some Nagaoka's on em! The discs were supercharged with static!

Discs run at 45rpm which is fine with me. The sound of my... See full review

Fantastic reissue.

Gatefold quality is solid.

Disc is as vibrant in sound as it is in colour! VERY QUIET copy, can only hear the most minimal of noise at the end of the tracks. Probably one of the best sounding discs in my collection!

Mine was not a mint copy, it was one of the dirtiest copies I've ever received from someone on discogs so I believe that has probably contributed to a lot of the noise my copy has despite cleaning it.

The packaging is really great. The splatter discs look amazing.

This release is fantastic. OK it would be nice to have the gatefold, but this is the cheaper alternative and maybe you'd prefer 1 33 1/3rpm disc than 2 45rpm discs... I have not heard a 45rpm one, but this sounds fantastic and does justice to an... See full review

Mint copy review:
Quite a bit of crackle throughout despite cleaning and brushing with an anti-static brush. Disappointing.

My mint copy has a fair bit of crackle. Not as clean sounding as the Black Refuge EP (mine was not mint of that too). It's acceptable but not ideal of course.

Given that this runs at 45rpm, they could have fit Chickens and Azaleadalen if it was @33... See full review
