I have all the other vinyl versions and this one sounds the best, in fact it sounds better than the CD. I think someone altered the mix/master because the instrument separation is incredibly clear, I was able to hear a lot of stuff that is super hard to ... See full review

My copy skips heavily on side B. It sounds amazing aside from that.

your typical svart record, I don't believe for a second they remastered it; master was probably taken right off the CD (and maybe just adjusted the levels for the cutter). Doesn't sound bad, but sounds bland and compressed; get the peaceville (VILELP515) ... See full review

Please remove the record from the shitty plastic bag as soon as you get it, these kinds of plastic bags are known to completely wreck vinyl records in less than a year of direct contact. I put mine in a folded mofi bag and put the sticker on that.

Sadly the quality on this pressing is bad. Lots of surface noise, distortion on the center tracks, smudges on the vinyl, small pressing defects...

So sad to say this is a bad master =( loud passages distort heavily. Thankfully soft to medium volume passages sound good, albeit a bit congested.

My copy has a very loud click on side A run in groove that extends a couple seconds into the first track. Aside from that it sounds killer.

Great pressing, great master, great sound, great music, what else can you ask for?

Sounds Great for the most part, but the inner tracks are squashed and distort a noticeable amount
posted a review of Incubus (2) - Make Yourself. about 1 year ago
This press has some big issues, the inner tracks are so squashed and saturated that you can hear more noise than music at some points. Music on Vinyl used to make good releases...

Prosthetic Records masters and pressings are mostly crappy, sadly this one is no exception...

This is the only thing that bothers me about the Vinyl scene... RECORDS ARE MADE TO BE LISTENED AND ENJOYED!, NOT TO BE TREATED LIKE F!ING TROPHIES, BANK NOTES OR STOCKS.

Yes, Alternative 4 is the point where anathema took a(nother) turn in their style. But I think comparing them to creed, Nickelback and Live is just "boo-hoo I don't like them now because they aren't doing the same thing that they did before" ... See full review

if this is how all DMM (Direct Metal Mastering) releases sound, I'm sold for it. This vinyl sounds AMAZING!

In case anyone is wondering: Yes, the skip/loop on Saviour is a pressing defect, it seems a lot(if not all) of the vinyls contain this defect, which would indicate a error on the mastering/cutting engineer. bummer, but it's an amazing album so whatever.

I wasn't expecting good audio quality on this one, so I was completely amazed by such a good vinyl mastering. Unfortunately there's no info on who mastered this vinyl; I wish i knew who on earth did such a good job working over the ultra brick walled ... See full review

yes, it's a repress. Still, this album was originally only pressed in promo formats/picture vinyl, so you could say this is the first proper pressing.

No idea, no word have been said about it. But I think it's safe to say that it'll be colored, at least a limited run, since it's a anniversary repress and stuff.

Does anyone else notice that the hihat and cymbals on the left side sound crappy on the heavy passages?. it sounds almost like it's flaged/phased. I guess it's the chain compression saturating in and out...

Appart from that, the vinyl is ACE

The sleeve is crap, I recommend that you leave the vinyl OVER the transparent insert w/tonearm.

This is one of my most beloved albums ever, Sadly Mr.Ted Jensen didn't do a very good job on the vinyl mastering; The vinyl is very loud, the dynamics are very compressed and it even manages to clip quite noticeably in various songs. I'm not a mean ... See full review
