This album is dedicated to Shirley Collins. This album was mastered by Denis Blackham at Skye Mastering. God is Love. David Tibet, August 21, Continuing the time-honored tradition of reissuing widely available back albums instead of releasing new music, Current 93 present a remastered, repackaged and expanded 2CD re-release of 's Thunder Perfect Mind. In contrast to some recent, mostly pointless rehashes of the back catalog, TPM was due for this treatment, as the original CD issue was poorly mastered.
The volume was far too low and the mix lacked punch, inferior to the hard-to-find LP edition. The bonus disc is comprised of TPM-era outtakes, alternate versions and live material.
Nearly all of this material can also be found on Emblems: The Menstrual Years and Calling For Vanished Faces, so Current 93 collectors will find very little that is attractive about this package, with the exception of the restored LP cover artwork and the nifty foldout James Last & Berdien Stenberg - Flute / Fiesta. With TPM, David Tibet created his first highly personal tour de force, a sprawling double album that finally gelled all of Tibet's myriad influences - esoteric, lyrical and musical - and represented the very culmination of his promising, though uneven early career.
The re-mastering job is admirable, raising the volume and adding dimension to the high and low frequencies, without sacrificing the integrity of the original's fidelity. This is exactly what I hope for when a favorite of mine is re-issued - a superbly realized package that deepens, rather than dilutes my conviction that the album is a classic.

This album was originally mastered in by Denis Blackham at Porky's Mastering Services; she was remasted by the Bricoleur in and is manufactured and distributed by Cargo Records. She is the sister album to Nurse With Wound's album of the same name. Many people have written to me saying they became fascinated by Coptic texts after hearing this album, and I myself learnt Coptic as a result of my love for the Nag Hammadi codices and apocryphal Christian literature.
