    First I gotta say - this is a seriously underrated album. With it the band transcended its garagey in-the-red jam aesthetic and created a beautiful multi-layered and cohesive whole. Yet the production remained lo-fi.
    I bought "Avatar" at release at since then my music system has lived through many iterations and upgrades. One thing has remained constant though - the sound of this lp is incredibly flat and muffled, with zero dynamics. The pressing qualty is ok, but the recording and mastering were made by a person who just did not care about quality.
    This approach suited Ben Chasny's bedroom-4track home-made records and CoF's earlier fuzzed-out albums but it kinda ruins the proggy intricacy of Avatar.
