Have been enjoying mine for over 2 weeks. In the middle of a thorough review.

Disc 1 is awesome. However on bonus discs 2 & 3 i noticed how some of the remixes are segued into one another and are vinyl sourced. But overall it's way better than the Height Of Fashion compilation.

The "Mutant Mix Mechanic" on disc 2 is actually the "Streetplayer-Mechanik [Audio Extra]" mix also on disc 3. It's not "Mutant Mix Mechanic." So the 12" A-side of "Streetplayer-Mechanik" is in the box twice on discs 2 & 3, though the EQ on each is quite different on each instance. The same file was not used twice. Which makes sense for this type of error. I'm more crushed by the fade on "Dressed To Kill [double dub]" instead of the echoed cold ending. Careful listening to the 2 files involved also revealed pops in the intro 30 seconds of the track. My first thought was "is this mastered from vinyl?" but the detail sounds too good for that. They might be static pops from the master tape. I'm not 100% certain either way. I wish I had a day to analyze what's one here and to compare it all to my carefully denoised vinyl rips. It does sound much better than "The Height Of Fashion" CD though! That's what makes me think that any pops are on the master tape.

also Love Shadow (7") clearly has some vinyl surface noise at the intro and segues right into Alternative Playback (Half Frame).

Looking forward to getting a copy of this. Has anyone heard about any other releases from them? The single "Silver blades"/"A Deeper Cut" doesn't seem to even be on YouTube. Aside from someone recording it off the radio.

Impressive! I didn't see that happening but the box was exceptionally well made. A perfect matte black fetish object that the album fully justified. And the booklet was very nice. As a huge fan of the album, i'm happy with the box, but am glad that the CDs are available all carte for others; a best case scenario.

Alternative Playback (Full Frame) also starts with the outro from a previous track (Streetplayer?). A great pity as these tracks were standalone on the 12" singles etc. It does bring into question on the source "tapes".

There has never been a case of any tracks from "Fabrique" having been segued like that; with the exception of the US promo 12" of "Love Shadow" which has three tracks mixed on its B-side in this order.

B1 Dressed To Kill Double Dub 2:51
B2 Whitestuff (The Unfinished) 4:55
B3 Something In Your Picture (Alternative Playback) 2:44

So the mastering decision was made to perform slight cross fades to a few tracks here. Strange. I would have preferred to have the tracks discreet, but the cross fades are slight enough to not be too obtrusive. I'm more bent out of shape by the fade at the end of "Dressed To Kill [Double Dub.]" That one out of the several anomalies on this box hurts me the most.
