- This record is absolutely my album of the year. Some of their best songs on this album, in my opinion. The silver anvil wax is a bit meh but it is the most widely available version of the album, so it will do just fine. I have spun it a few times, and I haven't found any issues in the playback.
- Sounds really good for a translucent silver-metallic vinyl, as this color seems to be problematic with surface noise. There's a bit of light noise in between tracks and slightly noticeable in quiet portions, but no where near enough to be distracting or a problem. The vinyl was quite dirty coming out of the sleeve, but multiple wet cleans removed all the debris, and really improved the sound. Once cleaned well, it sounds fantastic, with a very rich, lively and detailed sound. Much better sounding than the current reissue of Microtonal Flying Banana. The obi strip and embossed cover are a great touch too, and really bring this great package together. The quality of the music itself is fantastic too, a phenomenal finale to an excellent trilogy of albums.
- Great record and great vinyl. Just give it a really good clean! I thought it was a bad press, but it was just really dirty and the dirt was deep within. Once I cleaned it thoroughly it sounded like sonic gold. Would recommend.
- Based on the sticker on the sleeve "Made in the Netherlands" and the record and deadwax, I think this was pressed at Record Industries. Which is a huge step up in quality from GZ. Glad to own it. Hope Gizz keeps pressing albums at RI for the US market, though, it is probably more so determined by which plant has availability these days.
- Gorgeous sheen on flat silver slab color. Phenomenal label/disc color combo for yet another fantastic album from King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard.
Experiments into Microtonal Tuning Vol. 3 is very groovy, and one of my favorite albums I’ve heard from King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard so far! Silver anvil pressing sounds absolutely amazing and looks exquisite. Even cooler when held up to light.
- Fantastic press!!!
Quiet and deep sounding with lots of color.
Cookie’s synthesizer sounds so crisp and clear.
Worthy of hi fi systems.
