Record Store Day 2018. I’m not running to the Store because there’s not any chance this album was going to be anywhere near my home. I’m realistic you know. I tried it for two years and gave up. Belgium is just not ready for the music I like. A few days later a small mail from FSOLdigital. There were some copies left from RSD. E-Voila. This Version builds further on the 1996 EP starting with Path 7 You get the same eclectic mix of Electronica, Psychedelic Rock and standout FSOLadelica!! No need to say more!!!

Does anyone else hear what sounds like a bad edit clip at the very start of the kick drum sample on Path 8? I find it slightly distracting. Great release tho.

Finally got it. Re-imagination really surprised me, had high expectations on this new version of My Kingdom and have to say that was worth the wait! Top production! Good signs...waiting for the next Amorphous Androgynous album - apparently for 2019 - this year we will get a longform single from them also.

I wasn't going to buy this on RSD but saw it was the last copy and temptation bit and so glad I did.
Gorgeous quiet black vinyl as dark as a moonless night.
This should be a lesson to labels on how to make a pristine, 3d,clear and precise record.
I don't really know a massive amount of FSOL (Papua New Guinea and Lifeforms) but found this quite interesting.
I suppose you could call it a mini LP rather than an EP. but saying that my only problem with it is that it could have been a lot longer because just as you get into it.......The end.

Beautiful record, pressed very clean and clear. I love the Dead Cities era of FSOL, so this was a welcomed release to me. Very happy to have grabbed a copy.

I found this release largely pointless to be honest. It didn't do anything for me on a musical level over and above the original track. It comes at a high price, so only if you are a FSOL completest really.

After missing out on the last copy in my RSD store to the guy in the queue behind me (why did I tell him my wants list) I bought a €26 copy from Germany the Monday after. It's a super pressing, clean, expansive, punchy (for what we can assume is essentially 90's sound sources) and with a captivating vivid stereo field. They've utilised the sounds to great effect and I'm happy report that it's an enjoyable listen.

Side A - it's opens with the familiar My Kingdom root at the start with the inclusion of new building sounds, wending its way into some very interesting ambience. Collapsed Structures is incredibly 3D in parts, sounds coming at you from all over the room.

Side B - a deconstruct and redefine of the main idea, with bare bones beats surrounded in dark and equally menacing stereo trickery. Populate is an interesting and uneasy finale with deep inner city break wrapped in environments that become submersed in reverb.

On first listen it sounds confident, polished, lavish then when it ends, it surprises you at perhaps feeling a little short, not on length but on substance. As it says on the cover , it's a reimagined companion to the the original My Kingom, complimenting the definitive existing catalogue of landmark 1990' 12" EPs, thankfully without attempting to compete with them.

Is it worth the post RSD markup? If you're a fan like me, keep looking for a reasonable > £30 price and youre going to feel happy in the 'value zone', after all it was only £18.99. Go any higher and you'll feel that perhaps it could have delivered more.
