It's ok, everything since 'Repetition Is A Form Of change' has been easy going in comparison.

Intriguing to think that Forest Soundbed - originally titled 'The Trees' - was originally planned to be on Views



Another thing I noticed: the second track in the exclusive mini-mix FSOL did for the second Touched night is 'Boulton'.

[2:51] [x:xx] 24 - Perpendicular (Exclusive to CD)

So everything until track 17 is (more or less) the same, then the tracks that are not from the Environmental section are different cuts (usually shorter) except for Little Boats which is about 40 seconds longer on the CD version.
You're doin' too much, do less.

The cut stuff is generally environmental intros/outros which means the difference isn't too dramatic.

I'm really enjoying each of these but Views is a great listen from start to finish, even the previously released songs work better in the context of this album. I over I played Viewed from Rosey's Perspective when I got the album so I'm surprised that didn't make it onto the CD. Archived is a great selection of songs but I think Water Hole should be on there if it is supposed to be like an Archives best of, that track deserves to be wheeled out again like Mango Tree and Lizard Crawl.

Not that I want to discourage people from buying this, but it is up on Spotify now, which is good news for my FSOL playlist.

I expected to pick up the CD bonus tracks from iTunes, but they posted the full triple LP version for $15.99 surprisingly.
play this backwards and you'll hear evil messages

Ha, Gaz had a rant on Facebook about how it's definitely not going on Spotify as they make no money from it.

So after listening to Environment Six on vinyl today I found to my surprise that ´Silence in her eyes´(3:30) from Environmental is actually a longer version of the E6 vinyl only track ´Silent around them´(2:30)...
So Environmental is not entirely new stuff then :lol:

That said I Love Environmental...and Views... and Archived :D Yes in that order...

Nice spot! Still don't have 6 and 6.5 vinyls, so I had no idea. Nice to know we have a digital version of that track now too.

bit of a shame tbh. I usually buy copies from itunes / beatport etc... and listen on spotify, which means the artists i like get the one-off payments and the incremental streaming payments. A double win.

hi all, received my AEV vinyl, a quick question - is everyone having excessive surface noise on these records? well, not noise, but clicks (of course, I am not talking about those that are in the music itself)

Mine sounds immaculate. Clicks tend to suggest static.

ah, no, it's not static... they are pressed into the record. i'm just not lucky with vinyl... mine is number 124, strange it has so many imperfections. well i do not think it is worth trying to ask for a replacement since it is a limited edition. i have flac download anyway
