Can anyone comment on the mastering of this reissue? This seems like a brand new reissue of a long lost album. Thanks.

Exceptional album but NO CD format issued by label. Disturbing times we live in!

Yes it does, just opened mine as well. Can't stop listening to this album!

How is the mastering on this? Is it worth buying? Thanks. The samples on Amazon are pretty bad.

These are all bootlegs. I have the original LP and the first CD reissue. Terrible sound quality but who cares. It's Eno.

Would love to see this reissued on CD. Missed out on the original. Oh well, more fool me...

Doesn't the LP version come with a CD as per the photos on the website? Can anyone answer this please?

I would love to know the credits for this release. Seems like it's an intended mystery. A beautiful mystery...

Is the red an opaque red or a transparent red?

When I die I wish to have someone place a copy of this album into my coffin so it can guide me throughout the stars forever.

Noisy pressing. Lots of ticks and pops all sides. (black vinyl version). I could do without sides 3 & 4, not very memorable or original made worse by constant pops and seems like an afterthought to complete a double lp. Sides 1 & 2 are the meat and ... See full review

Looks like this is unofficial: https://www.discogs.com/label/100805-Vinyl-Passion - It would be safe to assume this remaster was from a CD rip and not the original Bethlehem analog tapes.

This repress is great sounding if you want a comparison and from ... See full review

One of the most impeccably mastered recordings in history. Sound quality is phenomenal. Long live the well mastered CD!

Very good sounding repress. Full of dynamics. Obviously from the original tapes. The 75 Year Anniversary Series and Bernie Grundman never disappoint.

Terrible pressing. Surface noise through the roof. Had to return it and I hardly ever had to do that in 40 years of collecting records. I have the 180gram version - same date - same catalog, same everything as here. I'm wondering if this entry is ... See full review

All the time. The process produces inferior audio. You can do the research on the pressing plant sites (the ones that will admit!) one plant for reference:

Just bought the black copy for $35 shipped to US. Refuse to buy marbled vinyl ever again.
Discogs vampires once again rear their ugly heads...

I sold mine immediately. Unlistenable. The mastering was very shrill and the surface noise was beyond belief.

Thanks for the heads up. I would have sent it back at their cost as damaged goods. They can't argue with you.

The version of Naima (track 2-3) is taken from Eric Dolphy - Naima: https://www.discogs.com/Eric-Dolphy-Naima/master/291029 and I'm glad it is because that CD is impossible to find. This has got to be THE best version of Naima he did.

My only reservation with this release is that I wish Lisa Gerrard had sung on all tracks and not just only 4 and that fact was not stated in the pre-release information clearly that I had read from the US distributer. If she did sing on all of the album, ... See full review

Bought the black reissue. Not too many noise issues except a few clicks during the quiet passages. Good bass response and not overwhelming, but poor high end response but this might be a pressing issue and not a mastering issue. Also, no download code ... See full review

Imagine how clean it would sound if they released it on CD. Ambient should not be on colored vinyl, agreed. Ambient should not be on vinyl, period. Absolutely no dynamics and annoyingly high surface noise. Total vanity product. I want to HEAR the silent ... See full review

There's quite a few Barooni releases I'd like to see reissued. Bandcamp could be the answer these days but I doubt we will see them on cd or lp now due to cost.

4 stars, great music but minus 1 star for such a terrible vinyl pressing. All lp's todays should come with wav or aiff files because of the incredibly bad quality of today's vinyl plants. There is no excuse. ALL LP'S.
