Very convincing review, great work on that.

As for the album - comparing the two soundcloud tracks with their original version reveals a very welcome and pleasing upgrade on the sound.

(btw - i'm not kidding about the convincing part - the review made me buy the album, after my (difficult) initial decision to pass on it=)))

Great review, and excellent stuff indeed. I never got into this band in earlier years, but it sounds like they've significantly upped their ante since, especially sound-wise, making the material much more accessible yet still unique and experimental. One thing, though: why go to all the trouble of re-recording the album and then only release it on vinyl exclusively? That's frustrating for me, personally: discovering a musical gem like this and not being able to reasonably add it to my collection, since I'm a CD-only collector and will never, ever, switch to vinyl and buy the necessary equipment for any one release. I wouldn't even have the space to store vinyl even if I wanted to branch out into the format.

It's also available as a download on their Bandcamp, just not in any other physical formats. Not much help for people who like physical releases but are only interested in CDs, I'll admit, but I would imagine it gets pretty costly doing multiple-format pressings. And since the project was driven by Frozen Light, with the express intention of producing an exclusive vinyl release (I have an interview by Aleks to publish which covers that very topic), I'd guess neither the principle nor the budget would stretch to offering alternative physical versions.
