I originally had this on vinyl, but as I wasn't a Hip Hop DJ I just never played it. A few years later I had sold all my vinyl and saw it on CD in a second hand shop and dutifully bought it.
In my mind I knew how incredible The Cold Vein was and how the music stood out (as can be seen in my review on The Cold Vein release page), so I figured it would only be proper to hear the album without the vocals and immerse myself in El Producto's obvious musical genius, but I have to (and hate to admit) that the album works way better with Vast Aire and Vordul Mega.
Don't get me wrong the tracks are still amazing, unparalleled and unrivalled but without the vocals it just isn't the same.
It's funny because I would spend so much time scrutinising the music on The Cold Vein that the vocals were always secondary, but until they're removed one can't fully appreciate how necessary they are. I suppose it's that old adage: you don't know what you've got until it's gone.
Still it's a cracking CD/LP and maybe more of a collectible item than a necessity. If you have the The Cold Vein then you've got what counts.
