They'll just use a different catalogue number system after that. If Rephlex can have a release numbered Dog ### instead of Cat ### then CPU can have a release numbered with As and Bs instead of zeros and ones. (not that Rephlex ran out of numbers,... See full review

Pity about the mangled cover on the CD. The overlays are supposed to be to the left and right of the cover image (which only uses the middle 3rd of the space). On the CD version someone just crapped them down everywhere, covering the cover. The cover... See full review

If he ever does do them on CD I hope he compiles a few EPs at a time. Like each compilation being what will fit on 1CD (so 3-4 eps/mini-albums at a time).

It's not the whole EP. It's missing track 2.
Plus track 4 has been moved to track 2 and there's an entirely new track 4.

They were released digitally in 2009, but those disappeared when Rephlex Records was disbanded in 2014. That's the source of the 80 minutes of bonus tracks.

1992 was the year the loudness wars started. All CDs from that point on were 50% louder. Previously they were the same volume as tapes and records.
It actually started partway through the year, so some CDs from that year have it and some don't.

Something minor to keep in mind: the track order is different on the CD. "Run Nancy" has been moved from the 3rd to last track to the final track. I'm one of those (increasingly rare) people who cares what the opening and closing songs are. Also "Evil... See full review

Good idea. You're not supposed to leave shrink wrap on records, it can damage them after a decade or more. The shrink wrap continues to shrink over the years (by a very slight amount, which is why it takes decades for it to be a problem).

The odd thing is that adding an R to the end of the vinyl's catalog number usually means it's the accompanying remix album/ep, but in this case both are remix EPs (all 5 songs are remixes of Cichli from Chiastic Slide).

Here's hoping if it ever gets a vinyl reprint it's the 2x12" version that the promo got rather than a normal 1xLP. Collectively it's 29 and a half minutes so 1xLP wouldn't be out of the question, but it's officially labeled an EP by the band so 2x12"... See full review
