I love the whole cover art as well... poorly masked Richard with white border is hilarious. I agree totally with Josso about the warm and alive feeling. Some of µ's single stuff doesn't have it for me.


That just made me laugh:

Best album of all time. If Voyager  had happened a bit later, this would have been on the golden disk.

Don't forget this one too! Posted on the web after release, I really hope there's a better quality version floating around than just the 64kbps one :)

 

Maybe included on the potential reissue of EKT?

I own this album but am embarrassed to say I haven't listened to it that much.

Do I need to redress that?

It would be pretty sweet if they re-did the cover to model after 'New Downfall'. Call it Michael & Richard

Listening to this for the first time in years. Soooo good. Criminally underrated. Are there any u-ziq albums that have a similar vibe? I'm not familiar with any of mike's catalog, embarrassed to say.
