This record was released to much fanfare and, sadly, mixed reviews a couple of months back by Temporary Residence.  I must admit I don’t absolutely love this record either, but one thing we can all agree on is the exquisite, lavish artwork and packaging for the vinyl version — ‘A Super Deluxe 2 x LP featuring stunning quadruple gatefold packaging with a massive fold-out poster, postcard, vinyl etching & free mp3 download.  See for yourself in the pics below

Four years is a long time to wait for a new EITS album, and we’ve pulled out all the stops to make it as worth the wait as possible. Aside from being a strong contender for their best album, it’s packaged in the most outrageously deluxe artwork we’ve dared since the Eluvium box set. Housed (literally, it’s a house) in a 10-panel quadruple gatefold cardboard jacket, with an enormous 18-panel full-color double-sided poster, and a full-color double-sided postcard – then all of that is tucked neatly inside of a full-color double-sided slipcase! The CD and vinyl versions are packaged identically, only differing in size. Both CD and vinyl come in THREE different artwork variants – the interiors of artwork are different colors. While supplies last, there are 3 different colored vinyl variants that match the corresponding colors of artwork. There’s also a killer engraving on Side D. Words can’t express how over-the-top beautiful this thing is, so soon enough we’ll have to make a video to show everybody. Trust us, it’s bananas.

“Trust us when we say that countless otherwise sage people have sacrificed years of their lives trying to accurately summarize the music of Kayo Dot. Singer, composer and chief conceptualist Toby Driver once allied himself with doom metal’s experimental wing. But over the course of three extraordinary studio albums made with ever-shifting lineups, Kayo Dot has become a protean entity that draws equally upon goth rock, free jazz, prog, contemporary classical music and much, much more.” – Time Out NY
