- I don’t usually buy soundtrack releases, but this is a gem. It’s been mastered with exceptional care and the liner notes will be a delight for fans of the series - it is all completely “in character.” A very nice album.
- The mastering on this is really good, with loads of dynamic range. Unfortunately, they HAD to press it on trendy splatter/marble colored vinyl, which is a real shame.
Side A has a weird, faint high pitched rotational screeching, low but consistent surface noise, and some soft ticks.
Side B doesn't have the high pitched screeching, but has the same consistent surface noise and slightly more soft ticks.
Side C has more surface noise than Sides A and B, plus even MORE soft ticks... which should be of little surprise considering that it has far more marbling than the first record.
Yes, these were cleaned (on an Okki Nokki). No, they don't suffer from static build up. This is how they sound.
I'm fine with splatter/marble colored release for the kiddies and collectors, but for the love of god, please release audiophile black or natural PVC pressings for those of us that actually care about audio quality and listen on something that's a few leaps above Crosley's and silly bluetooth turntables.
I'm doubly ticked that I paid an ebay scalper nearly double the original price. All I can do at this point is sell it and hope I break even, then throw the funds at the inevitable repressing in hopes that I get a better copy (not holding my breath).
- Great pressing and gorgeous packaging - loved digging into what seems like new lore on the inner sleeves. D side has a spectrograph image at some point of a face resembling Achenar and the letters "H E L P." Love it when this series makes you really hunt for those clues.
- WOW. I cannot believe I actually have this incredible soundtrack on vinyl AND it sounds flawless. The packaging is beautiful and the discs look amazing, I think I have a new favorite in my collection!
- Fangamer is repressing this, please do not pay hundreds for it!
As for my review:
This is outstanding! Everything in this set is gorgeous and obviously crafted with love. It's not a perfect pressing, I get some very light noise towards the end of sides A/B, but it almost doesn't matter because my God this sounds amazing! I cannot believe how deep this record sounds. This is absolutely the way this soundtrack should be experienced. I'm truly blown away. One of the best sounding LPs I own.
And it turns out the slip cover is actually a puzzle! (Because it's super hard to get onto the sleeve). But like all MYST puzzles, after 3 hours of cursing, pulling hair out, and swearing that it doesn't work, you figure it out in a matter of seconds and think "oh, freaking duh."
I do wish that they included more goodies on Side D. The brand new audio from inside the fissure is cool, but there's a lot of blank space on the side and I wish they filled it with more sounds from the game (Atrus' opening monolog, Sirrus & Achenar clips, the linking sound, the sound that plays when you return from an Age, etc.) Still, that's a minor complaint given how fantastic this set is.
Be sure to get the restock from Fangamer!
- Great pressing. Sounds excellent with good depth and detail in the music. Fantastic packaging.
