I feel the pain, it does suck seeing records cost more as time goes on. Honestly if it were a big label like 4AD or something pulling shit like this I'd be disgusted and held off from ever putting my wallet down for the music. Hell it already kinda is... See full review

Ain't he literally doing all the packaging and shipping by himself out of his own home? If he wants to scalp his own records so that he actually makes back the dimes that he'd lose selling them at an industry rate (when he's very much making something... See full review

Got my copy through my local record store. My copy has some warping, but asides that the pressing is pretty good (didn't notice any distortion or problems with EARFQUAKE when i heard it), hardly much noise at all throughout the record (asides GONE,... See full review

Great quality sound and mixing, some light hissing at quiet parts of the A side. Otherwise, good pressing. Decent album too, wished the record were a couple minutes longer.
posted a comment on Squarepusher - Be Up A Hello. 7 months ago
I meant that the record is consistently on the aggressive and sonically active side and less focused on lows and quiet parts asides the two ambient interludes.
Unless you have something actually worth saying please go be a smartass elsewhere.

Plays wonderfully on silver wax minus some minor wooshing on the B-side. Artwork is immaculate and detailed on the front and back. Also so happens that the music is some of Dan's best to date. Amazing and truly life-affirming music.

Super neat and minimal packaging (though I wished the little prints were in their own sleeve separate from the record) and flawless sounding vinyl. Good dynamics (though I don't know if it matters much since the record is consistently loud), zero... See full review

Save your money, don't shell out for the unauthorized MOV repress. GC themselves have stated that only they have the masters, thus the MOV repress would've been mastered from a CD copy.
They've also said that they're currently putting the finishing... See full review

Very underwhelming packaging, and not a gatefold despite being a double album. Still sounds pretty great, good bass and dynamics. Not much surface noise at all.

Still wondering about this, when I saw that I went and skipped the boxset version specifically to get this gatefold version instead. I'm guessing they'll announce it alongside their next album?

My A-side is abysmal. Nonstop crackling throughout Never Meant and the rest of the side. The other sides sound fine, but jeeeesus this is horrific. I'm guessing I'm unlucky as I haven't seen too many people run into this issue.

The packaging might be very nicely put together and fancy but the records themselves are so flatly mixed and quiet that it's unbearable. There's ZERO punch or dynamics to this whole album, it's like they didn't even bother mixing it for vinyl. It's so... See full review

posted a review of Brockhampton - Iridescence. about 1 year ago
Top seam of the jacket split during shipment. There's a pretty decent dynamic sound with the vinyl mastering, the low end is fairly solid from what I can tell, though I'm not sure if it's much different from the digital master. Pressing itself, not so... See full review

Very nice and evened out mix, everything feels in its place and the surface noise is minimally heard to none at all. Flat, thick, and heavy records. Packaging is great though the gatefold sleeves jut out when the records are removed, which is pretty... See full review

FANTASTIC sounding record. Records were dirty out of the sleeve but a nice clean revealed a pristine sounding master. Definitely clean it before playing. Flat and beautiful. Love the packaging too.

So, positives out the way. I love the packaging, the cut out sleeve with the alternate reversed artwork is really neat. The record seems to have been mixed well on the transfer to vinyl as well, there's a good bassy sound to the low end parts of the... See full review

Distortion ain't too much of a problem for this record as it's basically mixed to be distorted as hell anyways! Very good album though, first side sounds great even while peaking at 26min. Packaging is nice too, well built cardboard jacket. Lovely... See full review

Pressing this 40min low-end heavy footwork record onto a single LP would require squishing the grooves a lot closer together, which means the mixing would be forced to de-emphasize the bass. The bass is a crucial part of this album, obviously.... See full review

INSANE bass on this EP, one of the most well mixed records I've heard in a long while. This feels like it was truly meant to be heard on vinyl. Super thin, flat pressing. Amazing audio quality, only some slight gentle pops here and there across the... See full review

Some people don't have the money to shell out $100 for an album. Also there is no such thing as true record collecting, anyone who buys records is a record collector period. There is no reason for gatekeeping.
posted a comment on U2 - The Joshua Tree. over 2 years ago
If it were put on a single record the dynamics would be flat and there's be more potential for groove errors like skipping and surface noise. Putting a 50min record on two records would give the grooves more room for bass and dynamics. Also lets... See full review

Extremely quiet pressing, kinda flat dynamics with barely any bass. Audio quality is decent all things asides, considering how squished the grooves are. My copy came with visible amounts of warping but both sides play back fine as is.

The page was up for two hours, there were about 80 or so left when i got there (only an hour late). They even made available the date and time when it'd be available to buy. Don't complain.

Slight occasional pop at random intervals throughout the record, the vocals sound fairly distorted at high points too (especially at the start of the piano interlude on Famous Prophets). Still a great pressing, 10/10 packaging and the music itself is godlike. See full review

Hearing it now, yeah, the piano specifically on the title track has a noticeable distortion. Never knew why I didn't notice it before.

God knows at this point, I'm willing to bet FACT just misread something when they wrote that article since Warp didn't confirm anything either. Feels like they might've reported it too early, since nothing was made to deny it. Who knows.

Very crackly, Side C has a really nasty pop, and Side D is unlistenable. The packaging and music itself is great though.

Nice bonuses and it's great to have all of the albums on CD. Shame that the box itself is pretty flimsy, feels like it could fall apart or unfold at any moment.

If you were to put it on one record you'd have to rearrange the tracklist or make the B-side 25min long. Especially since it has a lot of bass, shoving it all on one LP and removing the amount of space for the grooves to breathe would diminish the... See full review

Higher audio fidelity and allows for a bassier sound considering it doubles as an electronic album with the sophisticated production. Shoving it on one disc would be convenient but it would also potentially lessen the quality of the sound.
