No problems with my green vinyl either. Low rating is unfair as the music on this album is beautiful.

Post Rock/Prog Rock ? Really ? I don't think so.

In my opinion these CD reissues are the best sounding remasters I've heard. Nice replica sleeves protected by a plastic slip case. Worth seeking out.

Monetising the death of a great DJ/Producer to tune of £5,0000 for this CD set is frankly obscene and an insult to his memory.

I have always considered this releases as an EP rather than an LP.The Force Inc. "Virtual Science" series were EP's. I think the length of the tracks has created this situation.

fake_blues is correct in his/hers comments about muted response to new Swans release. I have been searching round for reactions on line and nothing!. I'm not sure the old allegations against Gira are a factor for the media anymore as he nipped it in... See full review

A very underrated record. Beautiful modular synth sounds with elements of shoe gaze. Reminds me of early Silent releases from the 90's which is no bad thing.

If CD is your preferred format then this is the best sound recording of DSOM you could ever have.

Crikey ! To think I had this stashed away in an odds & sods record box in my attic ……...until today. Now safely on my vinyl shelf.

Superb release. This is ambience that takes you on a journey of the spacey variety but it has many earthly delights too and ploughs through many vistas.It creates a feeling of one being alone staring at the stars in the sky contemplating the beauty of it all. See full review

This is the sound of a very cold winter and the first great ambient release of 2015.

This track has been remixed many times but the Nalin & Kane remix is the mother of them all and still lifts me up to this day.

Don't think so as vinyl was cut at 45RPM for official release.

This is a worthy follow up to the release on the Silent label from 20 years ago. The music/ambience has a more current feel to it with it's drones and experimental styles and quite trippy too.
posted a comment on Rashad Becker - Traditional Music Of Notional Species Vol. I. over 8 years ago
Compared to the music he cuts on vinyl for other artists with superb results this album highlights his love of pure sound full of depth and abstraction. I suspect there was an expectation from some people out there that this album would be in a... See full review

Totally shocked and one of the greats from the 90's. The Phoenix is one of the greatest tracks of all time. His music had a psychedelic edge not heard from the West Coat scene since the 60's and it's funkiness made it superb dance floor material.... See full review

I agree it's a contenious album for some people and at first I found it difficult to get my head around it but after a few more plays it has grown on me. The last track "Light+Space" is a beauty and worth paying for all on it's own

I think it's... See full review

Commerical as hell and almost cheesy but has a nice techy edge to it and a dollop of acid.Very uplifting. You need to listen with an "open mind" and enjoy!

The thing I like most about FAX is you dig out a cd from your collection which you have'nt listened to in a long while and suddenly it all sounds "new" again and has not dated. This new remastered reissue is wonderful example of experiencing that... See full review

Namlook and his FAX label had reached it's second decade releasing great electronica until his untimely death in November 2012. This was achieved with great style and integrity helped by devoted fans around the world and the fact that he never "sold... See full review
