Disappointing. Sounds clean and crisp on vinyl but I'd guess it's just taken from the CD and not the original masters. Sparklehorse is full of unique beautiful-little sounds and it's upsetting not to hear them. The record sounds warm but falls below exsoectations of what I had hoped. I've heard a lot of negative things about Plain Recordings and their vinyl reissues. Given this album was $40.00 and is not popping in sound I, can't recommend it. It's beautiful music and it's a shame it was given this treatment on the vinyl reissue from Plain. Adding insult to injury is that it cuts two tracks from the album. Which doesn't make sense to me, since the original pressing and other reissues fit all the songs on, no problem. I'm not downplaying the music or album but the sound on this reissue is quite disappointing. Plus the missing tracks... Extremely dispirited.
