Did a sound comparison of the TMR reissues versus the MOV reissues: this definitely benefits from being released on two LPs. Sound is noticably clearer. More direct with more air around the cymbals and hi-hat which is very noticable on track "Goggles". TMR release is also cut louder than the single disc MOV release. Both of the other TMR reissues (Houdini + Stoner Witch) sound inferior to their MOV counterparts though. Soundwise I recommend Stag as TMR release but Houdini and Stoner Witch as MOV releases.

This is the reissue to get, though it would have been nice to get it across two LPs. MOV absolutely destroys the third man reissues (for all three Atlantic albums). Much quieter and dynamic. Flat vinyl that is perfectly centered. Can hear much better detail but it seems the tape that was used to cut these from (or the digital transfer at least) is getting a bit old in the tooth. Some minor drop outs in places that I do not remember from the old cd versions, though my system is much more resolving now so perhaps thats why I can hear it now? The tape issue I have noticed in spots for all three albums. Minor for sure and certainly not worth spending the money on crackly and scratched original pressings.

This copy sounds awful, along with the rest of the third man reissues. Noisy as hell. Avoid and get the Music on Vinyl reissue instead. Way way better. If your copy on third man sounds good, wait till you hear the MOV. Sold my third man copies of all three and got the MOV as replacements. Much happier.

Much better than the Third Man gravel road vinyl pressing.

Okay - it is a drag that they haven't used the original vinyl artwork. Fans want the original 'look' of a release, so it seems like a no-brainer... However, the gate-fold is high quality; heavy-weight card, great image resolution and features enlarged paper-cut artwork from the original CD booklet on the inner panels (I remember some great artwork in there, mind...). But - How does it *sound*...?
Play back on a Pro - Ject turntable with an Ortofon stylus through an old Kenwood amp. First thing to notice is - this is a relatively quiet press. The intro of 'The Bit' demands you turn the volume up. But when the song hits - it's crisp, dynamic and full. So much detail! I'll admit to having grown up listening to this through poor quality CD HiFi systems. I was floored by how much new detail I was hearing (particularly on the middle section of 'The Bit' and the scream section on 'Goggles'). This album repays repeated listening. Having purchased the CD when it was released in '96, I'm hearing so much more on this vinyl pressing. Also (and this is relevant, I think), this double pressing really helps when 'digesting' the record as a whole. Side C almost acts as a primer for '97's 'Honky' (a favourite, oddly overlooked record in the Melvins' catalogue). I actually ordered the 'Music on Vinyl' (European single LP) pressing of this after reading all the comments here slating the Third Man pressings, but was sent this in error (didn't complain as this press retails for £28 here in the U.K!) - was so pleased when I sat down and played back. What a treat. My pressing of Stoner Witch is the Music on Vinyl re-issue and that is faultless, and I have heard a *lot* of bad things about Third Man vinyl. But personally, I think this has really benefited from the remastering and is a quality press.

Great pressing. Awesome sound. And you know you need it loud from the first song...

Music on Vinyl is definitely not a bootleg label. Look it up. This release looks and sounds fantastic, dare I say BETTER than the third man release, and it’s on one disc too. I am hoping for Houdini on MOV to happen.

This is a great Melvins record. The fidelity of this vinyl is superb. But the vinyl itself is noisy and it's a drag.
