referencing Weird Love, LP, Album, RE, NUM1288

If there is one Scientists release you should pick up then it is this one. Sure, the production is cleaner and the overall sound loses that rawness of the original single and EP versions. The good news is they don't sound like they're on the verge of falling apart at every beat and note (which was something I've always found more annoying than it was charming). This is as tight and cohesive as they ever got and it is an absolute pleasure to listen to. Numero strikes again with another excellent pressing. The disc is flat and the sound is clear and dynamic. Numero has stepped up their game in recent years, upgrading the inner sleeve to a mo-fi-esque poly-lined material. No longer do their pressings suffer from egregious surface noise and scuffing straight out of the shrink. I highly recommend this pressing all around!
