If anyone has seen Sleep, you know how loud they are...this mix is great but I think people are comparing it to studio.
My advice is to crank it up, the mix is just on the quiet end. There is absolutely no clipping, the volume keeps going up and sounds perfect.
Impressive mix for direct to acetate, I’ll take this any day over something that’s too hot.

Third Man Records messed up my package, duplicating one of the records and forgetting one of the others and then refused to fix the mess up insinuating I was a flipper, talking about the T&Cs. Didn’t really acknowledge they had messed up or try to sort it. Rock and roll eh!

Compared to the Dopesmoker 2lp that I have, the live recording sounds pretty spot on for being a live recording. It obviously doesn't have the studio clarity, but for the live mastering, I would give it 4.5/5 stars. I have a modest setup as it goes, but I approve.

As someone who actually went to this show (and who filmed the two videos linked on this page), I have to say this set came out pretty great. To say the show was loud as hell would be an understatement, so I'm surprised how well TMR were able to clean up the sound, despite it still sounding a little muddy. I imagined it would be hard to recreate the energy of being at the show on vinyl, but this comes close. The overall pressing quality is fantastic too. No warping whatsoever and for the most part, dead silent wax.

36 for sale at markup already lol. Sometimes I really despise this hobby.

Scalpers aside, I really enjoy this release. Sounds good to me, although I do have to turn my amp up a little more than usual (I'd say it's quiet, but that's a little inaccurate since it sounds massive). Hope this at least goes on streaming services so everyone can listen to it, including me on my commute to and from work haha.

Anyone know how many were made? Looks like a pretty cool set

This is great, one of the best Vinyl things i own. Even for a live recording, it sounds great in my opinion. Big Sleep fan. I have most of their releases. I want to own it twice!!!

Wow 4 copies for sale from new scalpers. Absolutely ridiculous.

Can someone out there please make a nice vinyl-rip?

Can't understand the complaints about sound quality. This thing sounds tremendous! Al's bass in particular sounds bigger and better than ever. Everything else sounds loud and clear to my ears, including guitar solos and the snap of Roeder's snare.

The only trouble is this thing needs a wider release. Every Sleep fan needs to hear this.

Sound lack of clarity, an impression of recording from the back of the room.
