      Anyone know if the remaster sounds any better than the Tomlab original?

        My copy of this seems to have a pressing defect at the end of "None But Shining Hours". Anyone else experience this issue?

            After the folk-glitch wonder of THE LEMON OF PINK, The Books continue to push their experimental side with LOST AND SAFE. This time out, however, they focus on a new musical texture: vocals. And the final results are mixed: while the quiet hope of “A Little Longing Goes Away” conveys a languorous emotion, but “Be Good to Them Always” seems to be trying too hard for a poetic quality by echoing a spoken-word repetition over the original sample. “Vogt Dig For Kloppervok” doesn’t benefit from the snippet of ‘Jabberwocky’—it seems more unfocused than most, and “Smells Like Content” just tries too hard. But, on the positive side, the guitar of “It Never Changes To Stop” harkens to their earlier album with an authoritarian sample that turns the track almost sinister, and the busy percussion of “An Animated Description of Mr. Maps” gives that track a solid backbone. “An Owl with Knees” thrums, and “Twelve Fold Chain” takes the album out on a drifting, quiet note. It’s nice to see The Books continue to experiment—even if it’s only partially successful. But it’s the experiment counts as much as the results.
