The sound quality is not that good, and to me, it sounds a little "reverbish". This is probably because Magma was playing in a large church that night.

  1. Can anybody tell me if Utopic Records is still active/sell the VanderTop CDs? I'm looking to purchase both, but the secondhand prices are ridiculous, no distributors outside of Utopic themselves seem to carry out, and the lack of being able to pay via Paypal combined with the CD - and shipping prices (I'm Canadian) kind of make me a bit uneasy to send just a cheque and hope for the best.
