      Analog recording. Analog medium. This is a treasure for the ears.

        Excellent release all around. Great tunes and very clean pressing. The care definitely shows.

          This is what happens when a band cares about what their product sounds like. This was recorded on Analog Tape, so it obviously sounds beautiful on vinyl. This is the most underrated Foo's album imo. It's really a great album from beginning to end, and one of their best efforts.

            One of my favorite albums of all time, and this LP version does not disappoint. All ranges of sound come through beautifully: thumping bass, not overly bright in the mid-range, and clear at the top. A must have.
