I'm pretty sure this is a copyrighted album, and just because the band happens to be named Archive doesn't necessarily mean it can be traded for free on the Internet Archive. Nevertheless, this is one of my favorite albums of all time, and man is it hard to find copies, physical or otherwise. So Five Stars for you.

The album contains a hidden track, which begins 30 seconds after the end o. The debut album from the rather mysterious though major-label-backed project Archive, Londinium sounds like R&B on Prozac: trip-hop with evocative, gauzy synth textures some from soul samples girded by simplistic yet effective downbeat techno. There's either a sweet-voiced female or an abstract rapper sometimes both on almost every cut, and plenty of organic instruments added to the mix as well lending a hand with the guitar work on four tracks is Underworld's Rick Smith.

  • Eyalanev
I picked up this album on wax for £40 last year- still stands the time as one of my fave trip hop albums ever conceived. I originally heard 2 of the tracks ("Londinium" and "so few words") on a VHS to promote the Playstation's first few games of '96 and was hooked from the word go. its a shame that asking price is really high, as it is a wonderful piece of art. like many trip hop bands of that era line up changes meant the band would go into a different direction musically but this remains a great piece of art for its time.
  • Nicearad
please, plesae, please re-press this (and the other early-period albums).
  • Abuseyourdna
totally reasonable price i must say! i love my records when they're more expensive than my turntable.
  • Watikalate
It's been out of print for over 20 years without a repress or reissue.... Yeah, it's going to be expensive. That's what happens when it sees no other vinyl release.Also, I'd suggest buying a nicer turntable and cartridge to play your records on then... :-p
  • Nekora
Anybody have the track "parvaneh (butterfly) that's duplicate on her copy ? at the end of the side C and at the beginning of the side D
  • Gogal
Like tarwater3, I don't have that duplication.Side C ends with "Parvaneh (Butterfly)" and side D opens with "Beautiful World".Moreover, side D ends with the "Untitled song" of the CD album, before a silence, and I have a little back sticker "Promo only not for sale" (which is on the label of side A photo).I haven't the blue front sticker 'Limited edition advance release'.
  • Manemanu
Thank you for your answer, i'm not alone now !
  • net rider
Thanks a lot ! I have the blue sticker on my copy too...
  • Dancing Lion
I don't have that, side C ends with "Parvaneh (Butterfly)" and side D opens with "Beautiful World", I own the version with the sticker 'Limited edition advance release' , if that helps :-)
  • Kulafyn
Yes I have this. For the version with Parvaneh (Butterfly) duplicated on side D, the matrix/runout on side D is: "ARKLP 1001 D-1". On side C, the marking is "ARKLP 1001- C 2-" (although it's very close to being either "C 2-" or "C C-", as the engraving is poor).
