what's with the CD issue not being at the usual webshops (juno). i can't buy the vinylz because I have the previous parts as CD and it would just mess with my vibe to get a discrepant format.

It's in stock @Juno: https://www.juno.co.uk/products/alva-noto-xerrox-vol-4/775774-01/

i wonder how @Alcofribas feels about this

i have the same ranking as you where 1 is clearly the best, 2 is "quite good" and 3 is somehow not quite up to par as a whole. imo 4 is just as good if not even better than 2. if 2 is "qg" i'd say 4 is "lush." 

 

that being said i think 4 seems to make it clear that the project has some conceptual inconsistency. this one has lots of lush strings and big verbs and cinematic vibes which seems like it has nothing to do with the cold, digital crunch of the first record and overall it seems that 1 is the only album in the series that feels really tight both conceptually and in its execution. i don't think this is a fault on carsten's part or something - over the many years he's probably just changed his relationship to the project which is fine by me. but in a way for me xerrox 1 is kind of the entire xerrox project in a nutshell and the other records have felt like subplots or something.

 

still though, 4 is a beautiful record. maybe carsten's most lush work to date.

actually that's not all. We all know carsten has done eno covers before. famously on summvs. well I think that xerrox calypsoid 2 is a protracted cover/remix/reference of a long way down from another day on earth (which is a criminally underrated eno record) please listen and let me know if im crazy or not
