Got this from Juno today--came surprisingly fast considering I live in the US.

The packaging is pretty basic--just the cover (not a gatefold) with the 3 discs tucked inside. LPs are housed in generic black paper sleeves. It does have the number stamped on the back cover.

Vinyl is well pressed, flat, and quiet. It sounds well mastered--definitely cut hot, but not too hot. The music sounds excellent!

Also noticed, the track order is different than how it appeared initially on CD:

Side A
1) Sightings (Mental Cube)
2) 1st Calling (Yage)
3) Across the River (FSOL)

Side B
1) Great Danger (Indo Tribe)
2) Corridor Im3 (Smart Systems)
3) She's So Automatic (FSOL)

Side C
1) Keep Walking (Mental Cube)
2) In a Cage (Dope Module)
3) Under the Rock (Yage)

Side D
1) Visual Attack (Smart Systems)
2) You Might (Smart Systems)
3) Garden Bridge (Yage)

Side E
1) We Bring It (Dope Module)
2) Kremlin Taped (Dope Module)
3) Travellers (Yage)

Side F
1) Just Look (Indo Tribe)
2) 831AM (Yage)

I get the ordering has been changed to best fit the sides, but the "you stubborn bastard" spoken sample that links two tracks is cut in two for absolutely no reason, which is honestly kind of baffling.

I'm guessing to keep the pattern of having a Yage track close all 4 sides of LPs 2 and 3?

It didn't strike me as jarring. It reminds me of the original vinyl version of Robert Fripp and the League of Gentlemen, with all the intercut spoken word bits...

"She's so Automatic" is now credited as an FSOL track, where on previous releases it was "by" Dope Module.
Which is "correct"?
