The music is excellent, but the album on all digital formats has been poorly mastered. It's excessively loud and, as a result, sounds compressed. Yet to hear the vinyl release, but I hope it has received better treatment.

I've had two copies of the double LP and, unfortunately, both skip towards the end of Ashdecon on side B. Also, the first record of both is badly warped. I've asked Warp if it's received any other reports of the record skipping before requesting... See full review

Very good quality pressing: perfectly flat and no surface noise. Furthermore, the LP includes a code for a 24-bit, lossless download of the album via Bandcamp.

A fantastic album - one of my favourite releases of 2020 - spoiled by a poor-quality pressing. The two copies I have had were ruined by an excessive number of clicks and pops on all side of the double LP. Deep cleaning the vinyl did not help,... See full review

I totally agree with you. I recently bought another copy thinking that the pressing would be from the corrected, second batch, but I was alarmed to find that it was no different. A deep clean did not help either copy, unfortunately. I managed to get a... See full review

Thank you for the advice, but I did try cleaning the records before contacting you. Not even a good clean helped as all four sides still crackle and click. It's a real shame as the excessive surface noise spoils the listening experience. I do hope... See full review

Is the offer to replace mispressed, crackly LPs still open as I have yet to receive a reply to the email I sent last week?

Download code included with the LP is for MP3s, FLACs or WAVs from the Bleep store, but not for the 24-bit version of the album.

The original copy I received was warped and, unfortunately, the replacement was even worse (plus there was a lot of surface noise on one of the sides). I've since returned the replacement to the retailer and kept the first copy as it's playable. Has... See full review

Yes, this edition comes with the printed inner sleeve plus the 12"x12" book. Yet to play it as I only received the LP this morning.

Nicely packaged re-issue, although it's a pity that all three records of both the first and second copies received are far from flat. The up-and-down movement of the record player's arm is still very noticeable when the replacement is played.... See full review
