Rainblow Wreckords strikes again!

Yep, the mastering is lovely, warmer than my old cd which this really benefits from BUT...

THE most non-fill ive ever encountered on a record, more than usual even for Rainbo. It is throughout side 1 ot jist at the start and end. I reckon thats now 80% of what ive encountered with Rainbo being defective in some way with non-fill being startlingly frequent and rendering the LP beyond repair. Maybe its just bad luck but no other plant comes close ime.

Net result... binned it for an EU press.

Edit: the EU press by optimal is better but i take back what i said about Rainbo cause MPO are equally utterly awful only sadly MPO are still pressing records.

I have A2/B2 on my copy and also MPO - Is it an MPO or CBS copy or are they the same, all of these variants are mind boggling!

Overall great pressing, excellent, regardless of if it was a Rainbo or not. Definitely worth playing loud, and there’s only a bit of distortion at extreme volumes.

The Smiths would prove themselves as a singles act, releasing an onslaught of infectious tunes that mostly escaped inclusion on their studio albums. The unusually funky (by Smiths standards) and hauntingly tremolo-ed “How Soon is Now?” was appended to the American release of the British quartet’s second album and it’s a welcomed addition, as much of Meat is Murder is ruled by some odd obsessive turns. The title track is a heavy-handed pronouncement for vegetarianism, while the brilliantly sad “That Joke Isn’t Funny Anymore” and the futile pleas of “I Want the One I Can’t Have” expose the strengths and weaknesses of Morrissey’s fearless, unrelenting attack against societal norms. He’s a sad, passionate man beautifully backed by a rhythm section that never attempts to move beyond its carefully constructed grooves — all while providing the ideal template for the melodic wanderings of guitarist Johnny Marr and, of course, Morrissey, who uses these backings to deliver witty, conflicted observations and feelings until it’s all Morrissey’s world and we just listen to it.

Geat sounding, dead quiet, and flat pressing. Great artwork replica + inner sleeve. Recommended.

"Meat Is Murder" added an extra dimension to the Smiths in that it shows them in a reflective, political mood, imbuing hostility and aggression into their material. As they begin to explore new musical territories, the jangling guitar pop of their predecessor is markedly improved in terms of "breath of life". In other words, the instruments are less buried in the mix than on the debut, incorporating multitudinous flourishes and implemented layers into the backdrop that could not have been heard on the dense-sounding debut. Such audibly advanced production is a great boon for the band, and particularly conducive to their musical progression, as well as extending their versatility. Veering off into different styles, from the iconic "How Soon Is Now?", a dance-oriented, perfectly executed epic, the slower tempo melancholy of "Well I Wonder" and "That Joke Isn't Funny Anymore", and the powerful, affecting dissent of the title track ensuring a closing sweep to the proceedings, the album is more consistent and diverse than their debut, expanding on the presentation of Morrissey as the paragon of protest and displaying more of Marr's godlike guitar work. As a result of this experimentation, this album, more than any other in their catalogue, is the least accessible simply because its themes did not possess the same witty and whimsical edge, nor were they broadly comprehensible. Animal rights and child abuse are not appealing subjects, and in the context of an album even less so, and this goes some way to explain why the album fails to connect with the masses, of whom suffer unknowingly with cognitive dissonance and wrongly accuse Morrissey of self-righteousness. If you do not agree with the album's overarching message, then listen intently from your own indifferent perspective. Morrissey’s overt sensitivity, aberrational, anti-establishment point of view and refusal to conform to British standards showed that he cared not how he was perceived by others, and the band willingly supported his passionately delivered, controversial ideas.

With the group producing more complex, sweeping, mid-tempo numbers to accord with Morrissey’s hard-hitting lyrics, they did not stick entirely to the strengths showcased on the repackaging of their first album, “Hatful of Hollow”. To some degree, they adhered to the formula outlined previously, though there were some welcome augmentations: “The Headmaster Ritual”, “Rusholme Ruffians” and “I Want the One I Can’t Have” embellished the jingle jangle guitar pop framework of their debut, albeit with enhanced production and instrumentation. As with “Hatful of Hollow”, the band endeavoured to fortify their foremost distinctive elements, but the at once brooding and vibrant compositions included on “Meat Is Murder” were incongruent with the band’s established musical identity as a sharp-witted, adept indie band. It was this experimental overtone that set the stage for the quasi-conceptualism, general maturity and muscular melodies present on “The Queen Is Dead”. “Barbarism Begins At Home”, alongside the title track, both of which deride schismatic institutions, serves as an example of the band’s proudly polarising and cerebral side, vivifying and epitomizing the album’s emotive, angst-ridden extroversion.

An immensely rewarding experience enriched by hollow and very animated production full of extraordinary musical touches requiring a certain amount of attentiveness to grasp such nuances and appurtenances, “Meat Is Murder” may not be as gritty, veiled or hook-laden as its counterparts, but it is infinitely more bellicose, cathartic and confrontational.

Rating: 5/5

First: Beware! Since about 2019 there is a counterfeit pressing on heavyweight vinyl (180g-200g) which imitates this German RTD 28 release. I think it also can be identified that the matrix is missing in the runout and it does not have the Sonopress "Bass clef" on the center label on side 2.

Second: releases Meat Is Murder and Meat Is Murder share the same lacquer cut by Günter Pauler who is a renowned cutting engineer actually. I don't know what went wrong back then but both pressings sound awfully tinny and kind of distorted. Like there is a whole range of frequencies missing in the spectrum. It starts on both sides around track 3 to the end of each side. I had both pressings on my turntable. It was not caused by a misaligned cartridge or any mistakes in the setup. Compared them back to back to my Portugal copy Meat Is Murder which sounds full and pleasant - although Portugal pressings are not famous for being superior in fact. This was very, very odd. I recommend to avoid both RTD 28 pressings for listening. Other German RTD pressings by The Smiths are fine though.

A nice sounding piece of vinyl. Coherent drums and fluid bass drive the tracks. A nice saturated, warm sound that is vibrant and detailed is produced. Rich and smooth. I have different pressings of different Smiths’ albums and I think the UK originals sound the best and have a slightly higher definition and better clarity than the US Sire pressings. I have some club editions as well. They don’t sound horrible but they are the last down the vinyl line. I would definitely avoid them (unless you find them for cheap) and go for the original UK Rough Trades and the US Sires as a second bet. The US Sire issues don’t sound great though, buried guitar, lacking vocal crispness, not as punchy and dynamic. The original UK releases offer the best sound quality imo. I haven’t heard any reissues, curious how they compare.
