Silva released 1200 numbered copies for the UK market plus 600 extra unnumbered for the exterior. That’s the reason.

Yeah, this pressing sounds terribly good. Repetitive and absorbing music of the best quality. A huge surprise, considering the evolution of Bryn in the following albums. Don't sleep on this!

Ok, so this is being sold fast... Any guess about the possible musician behind the curtain?

What is sure is that, from the clips, this seems to be a very solid trip to that shark's guts.

Same issue here (labels are protruded near the center's holes), so it seems that is a fault affecting the entire pressing. Nevertheless, as other colleagues have reported, both vinyls are perfectly playable all through.

I was wondering that as the duration is more or less the same, but then... Why is this description on his bandcamp’s page?

“The vinyl LP format features two exclusive mixes of the title track, made specially for the vinyl format”.

I don't know how was the 2016 gatefold, but this is very sturdy (not as sturdy as others I have, like the Midori Takada's Through the Looking Glass, but sturdy enough). In fact they send me the sleeves out of the pockets, as they are difficult to fit ... See full review

Excellent package (awesome cover in a lush silk-screened gatefold) and immaculate sound for this deeply psychedelic and excellent portion of music.

Hi John, and congratulations for your work on the sleeve’s notes.

I meant the percussion work when referring to “drums”, sorry for the confussion. Clicks are less important for me than that reverberation I was talking about. I gave the vinyl a clean and ... See full review

Nice release in terms of packaging, with a printed inner full of notes, and sound in general (just some clics here and there). But I have to report that Voices theme sounds almost terrible to me: maybe it’s intended or it is due to the bad live ... See full review

Yes, but finally it seems that copies have finally arrived to them (at least mine was shipped today).

I have received the replacement this week and have to say that although distortion has gone, there is still some appreciable noise. Definitely, not a perfect release, but a better work and a very nice gesture from Empire of Signs to send a replacement ... See full review

Finally I received my copy today. Packaging and artwork looks pretty amazing (see pictures in detail), and vinyls sounds pristine. No trace of pops, cracks or noise along any of the sides. Very happy with the final release; it’s just that Rotorelief ... See full review

Yep, exactly the same problem here. I ordered this version and no news on it. I asked them via the formulary they have on their webpage and, a week after, I received a response stating that copies should start shipping this week. But, basically, I agree ... See full review

Just received mine and, firstly, I was so surprised when I opened the package, because I thought it will be a regular tip-on sleeve, as nobody mentioned it was a gatefold before... And what a gatefold: sturdy as hell. Regarding the sound, I agree it ... See full review

Personally, I doubt it was 600 coloured copies. Seems nearly impossible that quantity was sold in two hours. Maybe that’s the total run and they had a “strictly limited” copies of the coloured version, as a part of them. In addition: this version is ... See full review

I wouldn't define it as a top quality pressing. This LP suffers from noise in both sides; there are parts where it is less audible than others, but it is there most of the time indeed. I came back to the shop where I bought it, thinking that it would ... See full review

I bought it last week in a record shop of Italy and, advised per your comments, I asked to the crew to open the package for me just to give it a listen. I didn't notice any major noise nor skips or pops in this first listening. Then, already at home, I ... See full review

Amazing artwork for an amazing record, a moving and convincing mix of spoken word and dub, where bass sounds take a prominent place. Packed with a proper quality pressing. Check it out!

Mine don’t skip at all and, although not perfect, it sounds quite well in my opinion. I was afraid on how the coloured vinyl would affect the pressing, but this time they have done a decent job.

Hey! Yes, more or less, maybe nearest to the beginning as far as I can remember. Anyway, I wrote to the label and they solved the problem very quickly, because it was a problem present all over the first pressing. So if you still have the defective item, ... See full review

For me, the collaboration between these two artists have produced a magnificent output, quite unnerving and mysterious music, with a sense of mysticism and a deep and hypnotic quality. In terms of the release itself, certainly it's too austere and maybe ... See full review

I bought late repress (January'17) expecting a superior ambient sound but once I put vinyls on turntable, I find myself saddened. Some turbulence and annoying noise (due, in part, to a scratch in side A of my copy) in every of the four sides, regardless ... See full review

Excellent music, but defective item. On second track of side A there is a brief mix (that last almost two seconds) of another theme. Check your copies as this seems a bad pressing that may affect the whole print run.

Amazing package and pressing for such an impressive underground mussic. Still in stock at boomkat. Don't miss it out!
