Recently acquired a mint copy of this pressing. It sounds absolutely amazing! Has RL in the deadwax indicating it was mastered by Bob Ludwig.

Props to twisted. Ordered a copy to the states and although it was the best packing job I've ever seen, it still arrived damaged. Twisted responded to my email in less than 10 minutes and I had a replacement outer and sleeves in less than a ... See full review

This sounds absolutely fantastic. My first disc is slightly warped from manufacturer. Fortunately doesn't affect the sound.

My copy sounds absolutely fantastic! Bass hits hard and the higher frequencies are crisp and clear. Lovely pressing, I'm very pleased with it.

My copy sounds great. There are a few pops here and there but cleaning improved them a lot.

Same here, really sucks because it's a stellar remix by the Bedrock crew.

Man this sounds fantastic! A very few pops here and there but I think it just needs a deep clean. I've been wanting this for so long and it is such a beautiful package. Just blown away. I have around 2/3 of the new PF reissues and of course they ... See full review

EOS replied and said replacements will be sent out in May. Will update once received.

Managed to pick up a copy from Turntable Lab for $25 before they sold out. Mine has distortion throughout but the passages without distortion sound amazing. I've emailed Empire of Signs for a replacement. I will update once received.

What a great album. takes the old sounds and blends them into a funky nu stew.

Plain pressings plain suck. Pressed from the cd, sounds terrible, lots of pops and surface noise on both black and green. Lesson learned.

Sweeping, minimalist, beautiful release. FSOL create a vast expanse in a digital domain and with it a singular vision of tones in a minor key. Robotic sheep dream of bubbling streams under a simulated sky.

These were sold out when I went to buy one. Emailed Malicious Damage and got a message back saying they had a copy stashed in the attic and I purchased straight away. So glad, it's a beautiful pressing.

Great pressing. Really gives perspective to the 180g hype. This is not a heavy pressing, but it's flat, dead quiet and sounds great (even though the gain needs to be turned up due to the length of the lp).

Something weird going on with the track ... See full review

Pressing sounds great. Need to boost the gain as it's such a long lp but mine is dead quiet. Excellent release.

Sound is exceptional. Very good pressing. Need to up the gain a bit but that is normal for a recording of this length. Fortunately the vinyl is dead quiet. Very pleased with my copy.

Sure would be nice if they included where to actually download the mp3's at. Nowhere to be found on their site.

Sounds fantastic. Very slight surface noise on beginning of A side but quiet otherwise. I have both versions and think the black vinyl is a tad more quiet (both sides are dead silent).
posted a comment on Shpongle - Museum Of Consciousness. about 1 year ago
Not the best quality pressing. The sound is excellent but as others have reported, both records had a slight edge warp brand new out of the shrink. Fortunately it doesn't affect play but it's irritating. A lot of pops even after thorough cleaning, ... See full review

Cutting Branches is an epic journey of a track. Must have for fans of eclectic dub music!

This pressing is terrible. Clicks and pops all over the place brand new. I purchased on ebay when it came out and was unaware of the different Ninja Tune/Domino pressings. Avoid this one.
posted a comment on The Chemical Brothers - Born In The Echoes. about 1 year ago
Vinyl is very, very heavy. Probably the heaviest records I've come across. They sound great but side C had gunk actually pressed into the vinyl. It initially wouldn't play through and skipped. I carefully scraped it off with my fingernail and cleaned ... See full review

Purchased all the reissues on black and colored vinyl and so far this is the worst regarding quality control. Both records are badly warped and the edges are very rough. I'm going to get a record clamp and hopefully will be able to listen to them with ... See full review

Snap, crackle, pop!!

The music sounds good, especially turned up, but it's apparent it was mastered from a digital source and the record is pretty noisy, lots of pops plus side two of my copy is off-center. First time I've had to deal with this, I ... See full review

Stunning pressing. I have a 1973 US Harvest pressing which has seen better days and the 2003 30th Anniversary pressing which has some issues such as surface noise and warping. This pressing sounds phenomenal. Very quiet with dynamic sound and nice low ... See full review

Fantastic pressing. Sounds is clean and dynamic with no surface noise. I've purchased all the 2017 pressings in black and four of the limited edition color and they all sound great. Hope to complete the collection!

Picked up all three 2017 vinyl reissues. Of the three the 20th anniversary silver edition has the nicest packaging and the sound is a bit better. All three sound fantastic but the silver is a bit more punchy. As noted, all three differ in gain from ... See full review

Evidently, it has been noted that Showell did not master this pressing. The credit to him has subsequently disappeared from the listing.

Beautiful pressing. I picked up both the 20th anniversary silver and the 2017 black vinyl pressing. The silver is not as heavy as the black but to me sounds slightly better. It is dead quiet, sound is dynamic and the bass hits hard. This pressing has ... See full review

My pressing sounds great. It needed to be cleaned but I don't have any muffled sound issues with mine.

Gorgeous pressing. Sound is rich and dynamic. The artwork and sleeves are stellar. I would highly suggest getting poly-lined sleeves to ensure the records don't get scratched.

I have the black label release of this pressing, evidently there are two, the other with white colored labels. Quality pressing, very dynamic and rich sounding.

I've been searching for a clean copy of this on vinyl for years. It's pretty much the last album I needed to complete my Orb collection. I figured I would have to grab a repress when available as clean original pressings are very rare.

This pressing is absolutely outstanding. Thick quiet double vinyl with great dynamic sound. I'm guessing I have the UK version as it says Schnitzel Records on the back. I don't know for sure though.

Nice heavy pressing. Some slight surface noise that you'd expect in the quiet parts. Great dynamics overall. The music is fantastic. Has a heavy Beatles influence.
