Plain Recordings - don't waste your money on their products. I bought Spiritualized's "Let it Come Down" on Plain. Hands down, the WORST example of mastering vinyl you will find.

It's as if they went out of their way to deliberately sabotage a great album. It is so bad I can't listen to it.

My wife says it sounds like an MP3.

Just wanted to add to the chorus of naysayers who have had awful experiences with most any Plain Recordings vinyl pressing. Yes, they suck. All my experiences have been poor and I kick myself when I purchase something and forget to check the label (Sparklehorse, Good Morning Spider, I'm looking at you. Not there's any other realistic option with original pressings of the single vinyl version going for $200+ and having to be sent from Japan or NZ. Oh well.)

No issues here. I own two of their Jesus and Mary Chain reissues and am quite pleased. They might not be audiophile quality, but there is a nice sound-stage to them. No issue with pops or audio defects. Vinyl is nice and shiny.

Two separate copies Of Ween- White Pepper, purchased SEALED a year apart, both had feelable marks that caused pops. Pretty awful quality control.

I too have a negative experience with Plain Recordings. Ween - The Mollusk LP sounds awful! Annoying surface noise across the entirety of side 1 straight out of the shrink. I'm sure the CD would sound better for a quarter of the price.

All Plain Recordings does is BUTCHER some of the finest albums ever created. What an insult to the original artists. Consider yourself warned -- don't waste your money on this crap!!!

When i got my repressing of Weens White Pepper which was sealed there was a small black dot on the vinyl. i believe it is some kind of marker or something. Has this happened to anyone else.

I just picked up their reissue of Todd Snider - Songs from the Daily Planet - I also have Elliott Smith Figure 8 - Snider is much better - actually plays quite well - greater sonic stage and detail than the CD/MP3s ... Smith does have some too high Gain distortion on the more 'rockers' like Son of Sam - and the finish of the vinyl is a bit rough. The translucent green vinyl for Snider is well done, and sounds better than expected based on the reviews posted here on the Labels typical performance. So thumbs up on Snider, and sideways on Smith.

I actually bought the recent pressing of Automatic by The Jesus and Mary Chain, and it's pretty good! a few spots with surface noise, but nothing terrible. Maybe plain has improved?
