So, would it be better if they just called them Night Radiance I, II and III respectively?

Yes. I wouldn't mind buying 3 records. But I don't even have a tape deck and I try to avoid CD if possible, too.

Usually I don`t buy tapes anymore either but will make an exception with this release.
Buying all three formats of this album is actually like purchasing three different records of the same band so accusing people for their supposed collector-attitude is out of place in this case.

I like the band, but the concept of releasing three versions of the "same" album on three formats is pretentious and creates a cheap collector's circus around the entire thing.
That being said, I'm sure I'll grab whichever one sounds the closest to Urkaos, if I can do it without bending backwards. His ambient-type recordings don't interest me.

Yeah, the metal one will do for me. I love Times of Grace but I've never even heard Grace so I think I'll survive without the supplement ambient recording here too.

Are you supposed to play them all at the same time? Or is it the same album song wise but one is 'ambient' and one is 'metal' etc? I feel bad for fans of the band regardless.

No, they're all different releases and meant to be played separately.
For those who want the "metal"; side A of the cassette and side B of the vinyl but you'll be missing out on something truly beautiful without the whole experience of the 'Trinity'.

So CD is all ambient?

Also, on topic of Urkaos, can someone PLEASE share a recording of the LP version? I'm not willing to shell out over $70 for the record, but would like to listen to the album with the intended volume levels.

CD is a mixture; 11 songs 5 are metal. They flow into the ambient passages perfectly just like the way that 'What Do You Think of the Old God...' was arranged.

To the person asking about URKAOS - I'm almost certain that both the vinyl and CD are from the same 'normalized' master.

Of the three versions of DMDC, IMO, the CD is most reminiscent of URKAOS in terms of song lengths and the mixture of 'metal' and ambient tracks. That said, don't expect URKAOS II. It's not a guitar record. The tape reminds me more of Old God in terms of it being two long tracks. The youtube excerpt is part of Side A of the tape. The vinyl is its own thing.

No two of their releases have ever sounded alike, apart from the general murky atmosphere, and these three are no different.

All of them have gotten more spins than any other release this year.

This is incorrect. The CD is too quiet, as the man himself complained about in an interview. The vinyl release is properly mastered and sound infinitely better to these ears (and to his!).

What's the harm of having a lower overall volume on CD? Given that the production isn't half-assed, it's just a matter of turning up the volume on our receiver, right?

Sorry I wasn't really clear. It's all over the place - the intro is very quiet, then the second track is super loud. It's a mess. It's not uniformly too quiet - it's all over the shop. There's an interview with the main man and he describes his dissatisfaction with this.
