I also have the original Japanese CD and I agree 100% with user MatteoL, the image on the front cover is a bad print with very inaccurate colors! The simple release has better quality but still again way lower than the CD. Also the back cover is extremely disappointing with the lack of CD's artwork and wrong info about Kawai playing all the instruments...
The visual used here were mandatory and the source provided despite all efforts were the files used for the '95 CD version, a 300 dpi 12cm x 12cm print film, to use for a 30cm x 30cm - considering this, the result is pretty good.
won't the misprinted obi be worth more :)
Just to piggy back on what everyone else is saying, this really is an outstanding pressing. I bought this on a lark because I found a copy on here for $27. I'm so glad I snagged it. It sounds really awesome, and the pressing is very, very quiet (a must for this type of minimal yet brooding music). Grab this if you're a fan, or just grab it if you're into high quality and good sounding pressings.RIYL: Audiophile pressings, ambient music, soundtracks
Do the fine people of WRWTFWW plan on rectifying the misprinted obi strip debacle? This is the most expensive retail price I've seen for a 2xLP and surely customers deserve the finished article when paying such a high price.
Finally had a reply and a new obi-strip will be sent out as a replacement.
I messaged them 3 weeks ago about this and still no reply..
No, I am reaching out to them here, on Discogs, where I know they are an active part of the Discogs community.
Why don't you just email them? I'm genuinely curious. Have you tried reaching out?
A very cool release! Nice jacket, nice 24 page booklet. And it sounds very good too!Ordered at Amazon DE for 33 euro's. Other websites are ridiculously expensive with prices of over 40 pounds. Look around a bit and you can find it cheaper.I'm also curious as to how many of these were pressed. It's still for sale everywhere so my guess it's 2000 at least.
What means »Limited Edition«? There are no facts about the number of copys?
Great edition. Price was high, but the sound is really good and clear.
extremely happy with this release. the bonuses are worth the £40 in my opinion, especially with the free poster included. audio quality is flawless on my records and the booklet included informative about the work that went behind the first gits movie. expanded my appreciation for it.
WRWTFWW added a poster as a thank you for the late release "To thank you for your patience, you will receive a free poster with the record - hope you like it."I was hoping for something GITS related but it was a "I want to believe in whatever the fuck I want" X-files poster. Still unsure if I'm disappointed but it was free so, whatever...
You mentioned a poster, where were you able to obtain this release with a bonus poster?
Superb pressing, great mastering, the sound is very tense and tangible. The booklet adds appreciation for the work that went into this masterful soundtrack.
I'm super happy with my copy. Amazing dynamics and the sound is ridiculously clear. Also the booklet is very interesting, not least because of the Kawai track commentary.
The image on the front sleeve is printed very badly, IMHO. I have the original japanese CD and the image is way better: this vinyl print seems taken from a low-quality scan
Excellent pressing and I think the overall package is really great. The music itself is beautiful - never realized the care that was put into the recording and production before. Soundstage and dynamics are wonderful.
I thought We Release WTF We Want were taking the piss putting this out at £40 for a single album with a few gimmicks and I still do. It is a good quality of press and nice package of a great soundtrack but I can't really see anything but greed making this more than double what you would expect it to cost.
There are 2 versions, one single LP, and one with an extra one-sided7" (the J-Pop track), 24 pages 12" booklet in english, obi and hotfoil - I guess this last one is the £40 version you talk about - pressing is the same on both releases.
had a little surface noise at the beginning but nothing major of note to report the book is really worth it the notes are great and detailed.

Can anyone give me a review of the pressing quality?!
Second that. Although pressing itself is quite low on the level. Anyone knows if this is "due" to DMM?
Overall very good but not the quietest pressing during the quiet parts (not really noticeable unless you're listening through headphones) or it could be my turntable is too analytical or set up wrong
Pressing quality is perfect, No noises, good sound, great cover!
