Reviews:
  • MARK BEN FORD
The original box set (Tomato) is the best sounding version I have heard. Yeah, it can be a "long" listening experience (compared to other releases, the promo and cd) but somehow when heard in it's entirety it all seems to makes more sense. The vinyl pressing is superb. For me, this is where P Glass peaks.
