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.
To there lasting and admirable credit ,'Bytes' have promised an additional 12" vinyl to all ... See full review

Anyone got any advice for someone who hastily bought the Pentamorous LP on music on vinyl and is PISSED OFF that it's now being released on evolution?

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.

I feel some of the comments left here are a tad harsh.orbital have always been ones for sticking in tunes that leave the listener a tad bemused or at least confused.they have proved time and again that they can deliver where it counts.

Anything which carries the phrase 'she threw one of her bibles at me,in a fit of explosive rage' worries me a bit.

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'.
It is my fond hope that I might ... See full review

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.

Along with Space on klf and AFX's SAW volume 2,this is an ambient album that simply cannot be replicated.
And,like the aforementioned albums,I will be buried with it,or burned with it.
Pure genius.end of.

I'm just grateful to have gotten a copy at all,thank you Dennis. Anyone who expects no surface noise on such a release has maybe just not been listening to vinyl long enough to realise that such an expectation would be unreasonable.
