I purchased this Deluxe mediabook version from here on amazon uk and had it shipped to the US because the price was the best at the time, and it was well worth it. This is Voivod's first really new material in 4 years (several live or demo material albums released though) and it was well worth the wait. This features the new gutiarist "Chewy" who replaced the late "Piggy" and the return of Blacky. From top to bottom, this album is way more energetic and mixed significantly better with better production than Infini and Katorzs. Those albums were good in their own right, and a great way to use Piggy's last work up as a tribute. This album is fast, and very reminiscent of Angel Rat and Outer Limits guitar work and song structure. This has the thrash elements, and the long technical Prog elements that both those albums had. I really enjoy the tracks Mechanical Mind, Kaleidos, and Kalskap O'kom, but in general all the tracks are very good.
For collectors like me there is the standard version with 10 tracks, this version with Deluxe mediabook, 2 stickers, and 2 bonus live at Roadburn 2012 tracks (Target Earth and Man in The Trees), The Box set version that includes a poster, belt, this Mediabook version, and the rare previously vinyl only "Live at Roadburn 2011" set (which I have also purchased). Finally, there is a difference between the European Mediabook and Japanese deluxe jewel case is the last 2 tracks being Tibal convictions (live at 2012 roadburn) and Nothingface (live at 2012 roadburn). I actaully own european mediapack, box set, and japanese versions. Hope this his helpful for those looking for the difference between versions.
Great album, long time fans will love this, new fans will see a good product also.
