Comments: This is the next best thing to an official relics-release on CD. The great thing about this roio is the extra tracks and the long playing time, although there is not very much new here.

Some stuff is in mono, some in stereo. It funny though that Arnold Lane and Emily are the mono-version, as I'm sure the rolo had stereo versions.

The mastering was done very well. Obviously NOT from vinyl as I couldn't hear any pop or click. Some tracks do have a little bit of hiss though, but only at the very soft parts and if you listen with headphones on. -ANDRE

Ugh. This is pretty bad in my opinion, folks. I have to disagree with Andre and say that some of these tracks may be mastered from questionable sources. A few of the songs start a half a second late (Julia Dream for example), something that really annoys me. I used to own the official Australian release of this and it didn't do this.

On the bright side, the official CD remaster of Relics has just hit the stores in the UK and Europe. i would say save your money and buy those. The bonus tracks on this CD are pretty widely available elsewhere, so avoid this release. -PK

As Interstellar Overdrive is winding down the drum intro to The Gnome can be heard. This track has therefore been taken from PATGOD and not Relics. Presumably all the tracks here are taken from the regular CDs rather then Relics, and do not represent any remixes that might be present on the latter. -THE HEDONIST
