You know what mate,the point you made at the very end of your statement makes me feel reassured. I've been looking through my collection recently and realised I need more insurance! Obviously this is a million miles away from Skanna but I just saw how... See full review

Well said mate, couldn't have put it better myself.i heard some Skanna tunes on mixes and kicked myself for not having the intelligence/foresight to seek them out at the time,but the remastered triple vinyl was just the serendipity I needed.

I respect your cander and your right to your opinion.your argument is well structured and reasonable.

I emailed castles in space to tell them that both of my copies had pressing issues,and was told that no-one else had raised the issue.very disappointing to see the 'deny all knowledge' tactic being used by CIS,very disappointing.

This is nothing short of a masterpiece,the kind of album that comes along once in a generation in my opinion.tear jerkingly beautiful, uplifting, soulful.its so good that even though the vinyl doesn't come with a download I'm going to seek it out and... See full review

This is utterly mesmerising. I've been following this artist for the past few years and it feels like everything has been building up to this.

A compilation of this kind should not be this good.truly moving.i don't normally say this kind of thing but it makes me proud.this label is doing sterling work.
I am more aligned with synth based stuff but some of the tracks on here move me to tears.

It's true.that box set was available for weeks.i question the claims about pressing numbers,but really,who cares?
posted a comment on Global Communication - Transmissions. about 1 year ago
I really wondered about that! Were the MOV LP's released without permission? And either way do the artists get royalties? If not,I will simply dispose of my MOV release by Tom and Mark.

I concur.for me,that track is as good as anything else they've done.

This is a slight miss-press in as much as the Franz Kirman M25 dub has ended up appearing twice rather than just once with the M25 remix not being on there.

Truly one of the albums of the 90's.gave birth to the Conscious movement of hip-hop which has become so important/prevalent in the last 20 years.lauren hill's vocals are so powerful and wyclef's delivery is effortlessly brilliant.

Was first introduced to Craig Armstrong through Nick Warren's ground-breaking 'back to mine' mix cd (the track being 'this love' featuring Liz Fraser) along with a few other gems I might add.

I just think Matt is an incredibly talented guy.over the past 15 years he has brought me so much joy. If I could've made an album it would be 'music for insomniac's.if I could have made a sitcom it would be 'snuff box'.

I actually have the utmost respect for Harry.his album is genuinely really decent.its tricky because of his 1D roots he is always going to struggle to garner respect.

The most 'Ghost Box'-y release from Ghost Box in some time.i absolutely love it! It has a very strong 'wicker man' feel to it with the spoken word narrative but still bubbles with the synths we know and and love from GB.just brilliant.
