I still to this day don't understand how this album remains so understated. Its a quality album of electronica up there with some of the best.

Mine is going back to the shop tomorrow. What a waste to release it like this.

I find that static can be a big cause of noise issues, then dust attracts then the needle gets piled up. Or ground loop humming problems ? Mine is really quiet.

Mine sounds amazing, yes its quiet, but thats what my amplifier does well (I Turn it up!).
My pressing is really dynamic and the sharpness of the beats are clinical. Must be down to the system its being played on I guess. Great album.

This is all I can find, patience for perfection like all things from them.

This is an absolute beauty. Kind of reminds me of nothing else in my collection. You could argue that if you appreciate Nils Frahm & Ben Frost you may be somewhere to understanding if its something thats for you, or not as the case may be. Personally ... See full review

Absolutely beautiful album. Pressing is sublime. Pitch black background, the instruments float from the surface in a perfect way. If you care for Pan American you may have a place for Tape. Not the same by any stretch of the imagination but its a ... See full review

Why do they do this? Its crazy to push it at the expense of dynamics. We have a VOLUME function to push it if we want, leave the dynamics alone :(

I saw this band live once......Well well well it was special. But the vinyl is not to be then :(

Static ? My copy bought from here sounds glorious. Hope everyone gets a nice quiet copy eventually.

The pressing is outstanding. The content is sublime. The man was something very special indeed, beautiful playing. Superb.
Every time I listen to it it just keeps revealing more and more, what else can we ask in music? Not much I feel.

I had this pressing, its utterly abysmal. The vocals are buried in a 'mix' I was dumbfounded by. Avoid at all costs. I would probably consider the Music On Vinyl double release even though its on white plastic, by all accounts its very good but I will ... See full review

Nice pressing, very clean & pop/click free, packaging is lovely. The only predictable thing to come from this repress are the inflated unplayed copies for sale, no doubt a few missed out. Never mind, just wait for another repress and skip lining the ... See full review

This 180g pressing is an absolute joy to listen to. I owned this album on cassette in 1991 played it to death, then decided to buy it on the latest cleanest wax available. This pressing and the mastering are superb, this album for me is like listening ... See full review

This label and the artists seem to have the freedom to blossom beautiful ideas. Spatially this album stretches and breathes much like the previous album, under the careful Nils Frahm, he has captured something special again. Otto plays wonderfully, with ... See full review

Anyone who regards the approach of Otto Totland & Nils Frahm with high regard needs to be aware of this release. Its a truly remarkable addition within this frame of mind.

Where was/is the vinyl release of this album? This is in need of a press.
posted a comment on Autechre - Garbage. about 1 year ago
Whenever I listen to this track, there is a particular passage within it that conjures up a vision of a jungle with animals making primitive noises (the samples remind me of birds and reptiles i suppose). This jungle is very surreal, kind of a hybrid ... See full review

Agree. I am also a huge fan of this. Its a beautiful record, bliss really would be an understatement. Probably so underrated and overlooked by many.

Agree, they can be trusted, and always seem to deliver high fidelity.

One of my favourite labels. This one had to be purchased, it is a strong piece of work, up there with Pino and Recount.

I was wondering this too, It would be a shame to not repress the EP's alongside the 3 x LP re-presses. This on 180g audiophile plastic would be unreal.

My memory may not serve me correctly here but I think it was around £100, you had to sign up to then go into a draw, if your name came out you could then buy it. You could pass on the opportunity if you changed your mind and there was a second round of ... See full review

agreed with nein17 I too find the yellow is great. Generally transparent in any colours are good to my ears. Solid colours really suck in everything I have owned.

This release sounds fine on see-through yellow. I find anything on see-through colours is great (like black). Anything on 'solid' coloured vinyl is shite.
