Love the color on this release. The vomit splatter looks great, especially spinning on a turntable. The booklet is great too, love all the art.

However the mix is muffled. I have the same issue with my copy of Nonagon Infinity. I don't know why these hard rocking albums are mixed so poorly when they never sound this bad digitally but man does it suck having to try and find the right balance of treble and bass. The worst part is, there isn't a good balance. I've tried again and again but it just cannot sound good no matter what I do.

I personally don't mind Lord of Lightning being split in two but I do think it is strange. I get why but it does ruin the flow.

(Edit: If you want it to sound good, turn bass pretty much all the way down, then it sounds fine.)

While I enjoy this record, this pressing is not without flaws. The LP came slightly warped upon arrival (trampoline style). It however played without any issues and the "Vomit Splatter" colored vinyl is truly striking to behold. My biggest issue is how the track-list is split. Having "The Lord of Lightning" split between side A and B was a huge mistake (a passage in the track is lost due to a poorly executed fade-out). This really should have been a 2LP album. While some take issue with the mastering, I personally enjoyed the dirty and deranged sounds. Lastly, the small art/lyric insert is breathtaking and of a high quality. This physical piece actively improved my listening experience.

TL;DR
A mediocre pressing of the Gizzverse essential with striking visuals (vinyl and insert).

My copy isn't noisy at all, mastering and production isn't very good though, not even on the digital version. Lord of Lightning being split beside sides A and B is wack as fuck, should've just made it a 2LP. The book it comes with is super high quality and really nice though.

the record was a bit of a messy cut, and the mastering reflected the mess, so did the colouration. the whole thing was a mess but it sounded warm and performed fine enough

Great album!
But why are the spoken word passages in Lord of Lightning Part 1 in side A missing? In Part 2 / side B they are existing...

Sounds great. Bass is deep and well defined. It's fairly dynamic and loud. Good pressing.

while a good majority of their fan base consider nonagon and fuzz to be their best.... I tend to disagree. as time passes I feel this album will be looked at as a combination of the bands best elements in one album. I for one also love the spoken word parts. this album has it all. it's a beast.
