Plastic blues

PROS: Some decent songs; Darius Rucker's voice.
CONS: Too sterile. Radio overplayed the decent songs.
THE BOTTOM LINE: Better than Creed and Nickelback. That's about it.

I was happily surprised to see that it was red, since it was advertised as silver when I pre-ordered it. Red is a much better color anyway.

Classic album, bit of a weak pressing. It sounds fairly flat and the midrange feels washed out. Still worth picking up though, especially if you don't want to shell out for earlier copies of it.

Playing mine on a VPI Classic 3 with Zephyr III cart. Sounds unbelievable. Fantastic Press imo.

Right now it's saying this record is worth $125. Okay, is that unopened? Because of course I opened mine and have listened to it a few times.

I love this album and had had it on cd. The cd sounded fantastic in the car. Then purchased this yellow vinyl and it sounded very, very weak. Daris's voice is hardly hearable over the music, and his voice makes the whole album. Really disappointed about this vinyl.

Pretty sure this was digitally sourced. Vinyl sounds completely lifeless. I actually sold my copy because there’s no point in owning vinyl that sounds 0% better than CD.

I have the yellow swirl and it sounds very weak. Bad pressing? It just does not have the umph that I expect out of a vinyl.
Anyone know of a better pressing??

I see other complaints, but my copy sounds perfect so maybe they just got a bad one or I got lucky? Dunno, but I think it's a fantastic release,
and I'm playing it on a less than expensive system...

Everything about this release is slipshod. The yellow/black swirl is a mess, there's tons of surface noise, the jacket as well as the wax itself are flimsy, and it's missing the last track on the album, "Motherless Child." What a mess.
