Same here. Ordered specifically from a UK store and after waiting a week for it to arrive...quite disappointing. The etching on side F is clearly a quality control issue. I tried in various lighting and no picture can be identified as advertised. My side ... Leggi la recensione per intero

No kidding. In Orange has the best version of “Push” officially recorded. I don’t see “Six Different Ways” either!!

That’s a deal breaker for me.

The remaster is definitely an improvement. Very quiet pressing. I’m glad it’s spread over two discs. Unfortunately both of my discs have a slight warp but the sound isn’t impacted.

I prefer this version over the original pressing and the cd.
pubblicato un commento su Spiritualized - And Nothing Hurt. 10 months ago
Yeah. In recent years I tend to wait on new releases to hear feedback about pressing quality and mastering. Some special albums I’ll preorder no matter what.

I often find cds and lossless digital downloads (24bit!) to be more consistent. Idk. 24bit on ... Leggi la recensione per intero

I have both the 1989 original vinyl and cd (a few different pressings of each format) as well as the 2010 remastered on vinyl and cd (deluxe). I’m probably an outlier here but I prefer the original 1989 mix on cd.

I used to think the original mix was ... Leggi la recensione per intero

Good to know! I've waited for a proper reissue (remaster) for so long. Glad this and Zooropa are spread over 2 lps. I've heard the remaster via Apple Music and it does seem more open...wider soundstage than the original cd. Getting this on vinyl is a no ... Leggi la recensione per intero

Good to know! I've waited for a proper reissue (remaster) for so long. Glad this and AB are spread over 2 lps.

Does anyone know if the download voucher is for lossless (16 or 24 bit wav) or just mp3s?

Fantastic performance of one of the better albums from the 2000s. Excellent soundstage/recording. The National sound great on vinyl so I was bummed to be so close to grabbing a vinyl copy released last RSD (that’s a different story). BUT I’m glad to have ... Leggi la recensione per intero

bbark01, I agree. I also bought The Cure but ordered the European versions. Just like the RSD pic discs, the European versions come with dl cards for lossless. I’d suggest buying the 3cd Mixed Up...has all those 12” mixes on the bonus cd! Pressing ... Leggi la recensione per intero

I’m still awaiting my vinyl copy to arrive. Chances are there won’t be a digital dl card...

BUT a legit digital dl option is now available on the NIN store:

Thx Jeroenberk! I’m sold!

There’s gonna be some in depth listening going on this Friday. A good time for this trilogy. Can’t wait 😬

Is a digital download card included?

NTAE came w/ one (like the Definitive Editions/reissues) but Add Violence didn’t.

Yes. Bloom at 45rpm sounds great! But 7 on vinyl is muddy. Best loud!

Don’t forget “Primary” Ext Mix 12”...that’s a good one!

The original ‘90 vinyl and cd are just fine. May be nice to have a new copy though if yours is getting worn.

The band was cool this time to give us a heads up before RSD about reg black pressings and a 3cd deluxe due in June.

I have an original ‘90 vinyl and just find the remastered louder. It’s good but nothing groundbreaking. I’d suggest you keep the pic ... Leggi la recensione per intero

Great remixes too. Very impressed!!

I’ll wait for the June release for the critical listening especially via headphones.

No dl card w/ mine. Just gonna have to record myself. SHWG is one of my favorite songs. I'll admit I was skeptical seeing a $20 price for 2 songs but great mixes and nice press.

I wouldn’t say it’s a poor pressing. I got a clean, flat copy. Intentionally mastered “muddy” my guess. My ears tell me weighted towards to low end. Definitely sounds lofi. Idk. Turn up the treble if that is bothersome?

Enjoyable music.

Mine skips on 10 Miles High...my favorite track from this EP. Bought it used about 7 years ago (a strong NM) but was too late to inquire about a refund by the time I got to playing it. So mad at the time. Good to know I’m not the only one with this ... Leggi la recensione per intero

The Kode9 remix met my expectations given Kode9's style. I'm glad it sounds different. I would prefer a proper b-side though.

Love this album so much. Glad for the reissue (finally) and happy to hear of the nice pressing and new mix. I still listen to the original cds and there's definitely a lot hidden in the original mix.

Pressing/sound quality of reissue mix vs original mix?

Does the 2xlp come with a download code?

I think it's worth noting that there is download code included and has the option for MP3 and...hi-res 24bit 96kHz!!!

Incredible bargain for such great music that's nicely pressed and the option for 24bit digital. Outstanding!!

The EP style is his canvas now and I love it. I think there's more depth in his EPs than his LPs. It's like being in an art gallery and looking at smaller artworks versus a large mural.

Playing his recent EPs back to back is very fulfilling too.
pubblicato un commento su Burial - Young Death / Nightmarket. over 2 years ago
I totally cannot get enough of his last 3 EPs and Youth Death follows his progression immensely well. Truant EP and Rival Dealer EP back to back is AMAZING! I think spinning Youth Death in between them as an interlude would fit nicely or all in order or ... Leggi la recensione per intero
