Vinyl quality of this release is just decent, surface noise is not loud but slightly present. A piece of paper was pressed into track 1 of my copy, but luckily it doesn’t make any noise. Regardless, the cut this is pressed from is clearly a high quality ... See full review

This edition is incredible! Artwork looks absolutely beautiful with a tip-on jacket. Vinyl is silent, and Grundman’s cut really puts the very dyamic attack of the synthesizers stand out very realistically! Massive sound! Highly recommend

DO NOT OVERPAY FOR THIS PRESSING UNLESS YOU ONLY CARE ABOUT COLLECTING ANALOGUE PRODUCTIONS! This release that I'm linking to is also mastered by Kevin Gray from the original tapes and pressed at Quality. Also, it has a glossy tip-on sleeve as well! I'd ... See full review

Fair enough! That's too bad, then! Hopefully you can get a good replacement!

after listening to my copy (which isn't warped) that is just the synth tone! The original recording has that modulation, not your copy of the LP.

Stunning recording and performances, very natural sounding mastering with a wide dynamic range. The vinyl is also of extremely high quality, and plays almost entirely silently. Highly recommend this original UK press.

I noticed nobody’s talked about how this original pressing sounds so I’ll say what I think! To me, the original cut seems more intentionally cut like a hip hop LP. The mastering is very bass focused, but the cut is still clear and there’s good natural ... See full review

Dead quiet vinyl (I think pressed at Optimal?) and incredible mastering (BG in the deadwax points to it being cut by Bernie Grundman) very dynamic and natural sounding! Honestly one of the best RSD products I’ve ever bought! They clearly put work into ... See full review

This box is a beautifully and lovingly made set. Heavy jacket and box, all of the materials are made with very good card stock. The remaster is fantastic. There's no audible distortions and very little noise, which lets you concentrate on the very sparse ... See full review

Lofi live recordings, hi-fi mastering and pressing. Dead quiet wax, no distortions other than what’s present in the original recordings. Very clear sounding press! High quality tip-on jacket and printing! Oh also, 10/10 music. Highly recommend!

Well mastered vinyl, the music is cut loud, but still sounds very natural and dynamic. Vinyl is of good quality, just a couple pops here and there (without a proper clean yet). Great bass sound, definitely.

The package is (like the previous poster ... See full review

Vinyl probably pressed at MPO (Judging by the labels and where Mr. Bongo usually presses), the jacket might be made in Japan, considering the inner sleeve.

Sounds great, except for the sibilance on Butterfly... running a 2M Black, I agree this has been cut quite hot, but the issue really only affects the one song.

Alright, I don't have this, but can someone confirm that this was a pure analogue cut? I wouldn't be surprised, as I've heard great reviews, and Metropolis Mastering and the Engineer who cut this release reside in London! Why would RTI use plates from ... See full review

Fantastic pressing... I'm assuming by the matrix runouts that the original press was manufactured by GZ... This may be an improvement. Also much better than my US copy, which was riddled with sibilance and surface noise (Which this does not have) ... See full review

Excellent pressing. Just on the first track, the texture of the guitar strums sound warm but clear, the percussion sounds very realistic and enveloping, and Yoko's voice completely is free of sibilance. Overall, a very warm, dynamic, and clear sound, ... See full review

So I actually just got to take a listen to an original Pressing, and the cut is, indeed, the exact same. This is clearly the better pressing, as it boasts very quiet vinyl while still having the authentic & fantastic mastering as the first press. ... See full review

Judging by the runouts, it looks like this uses the same cut as the original UK LP... and they have just added their own MOV catalogue information to the original runouts. If anyone has an original copy and the reissue, it would be good to check if the ... See full review

Although this music is extremely lo-fi, the drones and quiet atmosphere require really quiet vinyl, and this LP delivers fairly well! Not totally silent but the few crackles don't distract too much from the listening experience. The LP is mastered very ... See full review

Really great pressing. Definitely better than the digital file I was listening to. The mastering suits the music perfectly (10 minutes per side definitely helps) and I’m hearing no surface noise at all. The minimal packaging is killer too!

I 100% agree with the previous commenters. The original recordings were masterfully engineered, and this pressing allows the inherent fidelity of the recordings to SHINE. Fukui's piano sounds like technicoloured silk, the bass is rich, and Yoshinori ... See full review

I unsealed a copy of this pressing last week. It's amazingly dynamic, the mastering is incredible. The pressing is very quiet, and there isn't any distortion. If you find a clean copy, this original pressing is so worth every penny.

I would disagree with you... Bloom sounds especially good on vinyl. The mastering was fantastic, it was cut at 45, it’s dead silent, the packaging is beautiful, and it has a bonus track that is played after a locked groove (genius)
