Quite the same artwork as this one --> Φράγμα, both released in 1981.

Is it me or the take of ''Man With The Dogs'' appears here California Über Alles is slightly different than the one listed here California Über Alles / The Man With The Dogs & here Give Me Convenience Or Give Me Death ?

It seems hard to believe that all "reissues" are legitimate. There is no indication of the reissuing label, no copyrights or licensing whatsoever. Unless Worthy Records still issuing the record with exact the same artwork since 1972, which is quite unlikely to happen.
Moreover the mastering is quite poor, the sound is flat with no dynamic, regardless the fact that the record is pressed on 180gram. My copy looks 100% as a typical bootleg. Record is also warped. Beware.

totally agree with you, plus very thin cardboard picture sleeve. If it wasn't for the colored vinyl I wouldn't suggest these pressings.

Hi, care to elaborate why is it a joke? I am considering buying this but am looking for more buyer reviews before pulling the trigger.

Hi, the main reason is of course the sellected tracklist that covers the later & lighter approach of EN towards music and performance. There is only one track listed from their late '80s period. There is no track listed from the early material of the band which defined the post-punk-industrial-noise scene. That era is not mentioned on the compilation whatsoever. They instead listed many tracks released after 2000, which incorporated a more mainstream musical approach. Moreover the decent attempts of EN with the Musterhaus concept are not included either. I would strongly recommend to buy the "Strategies Gegen Architekturen" compilations (especially 80-83, II & 91-01), for an overall view of all EN periods.

If this compilation is not a bootleg, I would take it as a bad joke.
Sadly it's official.

Probably the most indifferent compilation Air could release. It's like their musical career completed in the first four albums.

Even though it's "'Half speed' mastered for optimum audiophile reproduction" sides A & C have a constant surface noise thorough the sides. Sides B & D are quite better.

A really poor edition, indifferent artwork, no inserts, no nothing and a really noticeable defect during Emkay. Mediocre sellection of songs, plus quick mixing of the songs, some tracks have been slightly cut (Kong for example) just to fit in.

indeed, my copy sounds awful in some parts also (mostly in side B).

just received the replacements, they only send the vinyls without the picture cover, both vinyls have exactly the same (identical i would say) mark/trace which cause audible cracks & pops. how amature is that ?

Are there many copies like this or just mine ?
