Beware, the vinyl release omits "You Be The Stranger" and "Happy" which are on CD/digital versions (or were those CD bonus tracks?)
EPMD - Business Never Personal

Can anyone who owns this record confirm whether the lyrics are censored or not? I got another copy that's an unofficial pressing, and there's a lot of censoring on several tracks.

HOLEEE SHITE this mofo sounds killer. The machine-gun kick drums on "Dyers Eve" are gonna put a hole in my wall. You can really hear the results of Lars' aim to have an album with virtually no mids, just highs & sub bass. #justiceforjason

It's disappointing that we finally get an official vinyl reissue of this, only to have it replicate the CD tracklist, but Billy didn't see fit to give us the original (different) vinyl running order that has extra tracks "Tonite Reprise" and "Infinite... See full review

That's strange. It is definitely supposed to come with the printed lyric innersleeve. Mine did.

Can anyone confirm where Double Six presses their records? This one seems to have Pallas attributes (heavier flat quality vinyl, waxy inners), but it does not have Pallas codes in the deadwax.

Are you referring to the vocal FX on "The Nether-edge"? That isn't distortion, it's intentional.
The Strokes - Is This It
posted a review of The Strokes - Is This It. 2 months ago
The pressing is superb. The surface is basically silent, very impressive. And it sounds as great as you could expect from an album that goes out of its way to be lo-fi. The packaging is a cut above as per usual with VMP. However.... who's idea was it... See full review

Note that this release omits "Man On The Corner" which I was always used to being on the album when I had the cassette(!) back in the day.
Cults - Motels LP
posted a review of Cults - Motels LP. 4 months ago
Wow! What a hidden treasure this is. Cults transform the obscure 1979 debut album by the Motels into an indie dream pop masterpiece and one of their own best efforts (which is itself, unfortunately, also obscure). Unlike some others in the Turntable... See full review

Surely you exaggerate. A couple tracks, "Parallel Universe" and "Emit Remmus" sound a bit thin to me, but to me the rest of it sounds pretty amazing.
Spiritualized®* - Lazer Guided Melodies
posted a review of Spiritualized®* - Lazer Guided Melodies. 5 months ago
I just got my hands on an original 1992 pressing, which has a stellar reputation for sounding amazing, and did an A/B comparison with this 2021 reissue. And I must say... they sound identical. It is unbelievable, like GZ had the original lacquers to... See full review
Girls Against Boys - **House Of GVSB+*

This definitely is an improvement over the original CD I had. I'd be curious to hear the 1996 vinyl version though, because I find that the first three tracks on Side 1 are thinner sounding, which not something you want on those tracks, especially... See full review

Disagree. I A/B compared this to them, and both are great, but the 2009 sounded superior to me.

I'm surprised that the represses of this haven't been split off to their own release pages. There have been maybe one or two new pressings since 2013, but they've all been lumped into this release page. People are ordering copies thinking they are... See full review

Is it possible that not all copies of this came with the insert? I just bought one at a record show, and it has no insert. I notice there are also a few for sale, and specify they also don't have the insert. If they all came with an insert, then why... See full review

Of Monsters And Men - My Head Is An Animal
posted a review of Of Monsters And Men - My Head Is An Animal. 6 months ago
The Icelandic release track list differs slightly from what the rest of the world got. This one does not have "Mountain Sound" or "Slow And Steady" and instead includes "Numb Bears" and the unlisted song "Sinking Man".
The Kinks - The Journey - Part 1

Yet another anthology from one of the most anthologized bands out there. Compiled by the band members themselves, it has the basics like "You Really Got Me" and "Tired Of Waiting For You"and also gives equal attention to album greats like "Strangers"... See full review

Pressing flaw causes a repeating scratch noise during the intro on Side 1. Very annoying. Otherwise the pressing sounds really good.

Mine also has the "whoosh" on the title track, B2. This is devastating as the record does sound excellent.
Big Country - The Crossing
posted a review of Big Country - The Crossing. 7 months ago
This is total garbage. The volume is very low, the mastering isn't very dynamic, and it comes out of the sleeve very dirty and noisy. If you really want a copy of this amazing album on vinyl (and you should), go find a 1983 U.S. pressing. It sounds... See full review

It is unlikely this 2014 QRP pressing (or a repress of it) is what you got from Acoustic Sounds if was ordered in 2022. The reissue they're shipping appears to be a repress of this red 2019 Europe pressing (Soundgarden - Superunknown) done by GZ Vinyl, but on black... See full review

First off, the music on this is gorgeous. Definitely one of my top albums of 2022. This pressing leaves a bit to be desired, though. The credits on the VMP web site list GZ Vinyl as the pressing plant, but, the runouts do not have the expected GZ... See full review

Mine came with a copy of this 7" single Benjamin Gibbard* - Free Again / Bad Seeds. Anyone else? Seems like that should be added to the release. Ordered direct from Turntable Kitchen in December 2022.

*EDIT* I also couldn't resist checking out one more version and got a 1998 pressing. I did an A/B shootout and can report this 2008 repress sounds exactly the same.

The original 10" vinyl sounds 10x better than this if you can track one down, it's worth the $$ if you love this EP. It does not have the last five extra tracks on this release (which are now available on streaming), but it does have the track... See full review

Terrible. Maybe marginally better than the 1LP release, but still, the CD sounds worlds better than this. Save your money.

If it's the warning with the red background on it and the check box, just check the box if you are just upsdating to the existing release. That warning is meant to prevent duplicate releases.

Poor quality control on this pressing. Sounds really great but the vinyl has visible debris stuck to it a lot of crackle coming from the grooves even after deep cleaning.

My copy of this record is translucent (appears brown in color), normally indicating "audiophile grade vinyl". Anyone else's? The deadwax info is a match. Seems like that would be mentioned in the release info. Also, by the way, it sounds incredible.
Califone - Roots & Crowns

The record sounds GREAT. One assumes this is from RTI, based on the runout codes. However, I could not hate the cover artwork more. I loathe this trend of changing cover artwork for reissues. The original cover, while similar, was so much better.... See full review

I returned two different US pressings (the translucent blue one from Amazon) due to persistent surface noise, and went for this MPO pressing instead, made in France. I'm glad I did. The quality is better overall.

This release has a very confusing array of different versions. I ordered directly from Asbestos records, thinking I'd get the 2022 repress. but I got this one (I guess?) instead. The UPC and deadwax are a match, but it didn't come with the insert,... See full review

My favorite thing about this release is that they fixed the tracklist so it has five tracks, evenly split on each side. "State Trooper" as the Side 2 opener-- so much better!! Thank you VMP. Can you do Talking Heads' Remain In Light (four tracks on... See full review
