Music addict and vinyl lover.

Also a musician as I Have Four Names. Here's the obligatory bandcamp link.

Sometimes selling off unwanted items from my collection.

Complete music-listening history since 2007 compiled on last.fm. That includes vinyl spins. Yes I'm a bit too thorough with this.

Not really sure what is up with everyone else's copy, but mine (from Amazon) sounds fine. No real sibilance issues. Some inner groove distortion at A4/A5. Definitely not terrible though.

My copy was totally busted. It had the type of warp that, while not that noticeable, causes the tonearm and needle to struggle way too hard. Static once per revolution on side A, and locked grooves on B1. Admittedly the locked grooves create a pretty... See full review

Not a perfect pressing, some weak dynamics and pops here and there. But love finally having it on vinyl, and it's not like it was the highest fidelity recording anyway.

Kind of seems like your whole review is based on the printing type for the shell, which is fine I guess but Neoncity have used sticker-based shells before, and it's a pretty common option for many releases, both small and large nowadays. Have a look... See full review

I'm not going to say that this is horrible, but it's definitely lacking in dynamics. Sounds like the life has been taken out of it... which is quite an achievement for such an energetic album. I just don't get why they had to add insult to injury by... See full review

Not the greatest pressing. Very quiet (as in volume, not in terms of noise) and the dynamics are great.

Amazing to have it readily available on vinyl anyway.

Hey I actually had a chat with Paul too and apparently the reason Ghost was left out (rather than Obtusian) was a personal choice by Ben. He was immovable on it apparently.

Zenith does the pressings and they are known just for average, serviceable... See full review

Really great pressing. Like, excellent. There were a few VMP pressings I wasn't impressed with last year (eg: Flaming Lips), but this and a recent batch of others have been perfect.

Not as good as my aqua SAT I. This one is pretty noisy with sibilance.

Decent sounding bootleg. Perhaps even great sounding. My labels were switched around, and Side B was a bit off-centre, but otherwise a decent substitute for an official release.

Another great pressing from MOV. No complaints here. Great dynamics, great pressing, good quality control.

A UF release came shrinkwrapped. Never thought I'd see the day. Admittedly there was a huge hole in the shrink on the back, but... Anyway, fine pressing, great album.

Think a lot of people are out there to hate on any UF/Moonshake release. As someone who doesn't care to get involved, I'll say that this is a solid pressing. Not too noisy, arrived in good condition (can't say that for some other releases of his I've... See full review

Not sure why reviews/sales are allowed on this, but I'll drop in to say it's a great pressing. Very happy with this as far bootlegs go, and it's cool that it came with stickers and a poster. Better than the Moonshake DKC1 in terms of pure quality.

Finally got my hands on this, great sounding pressing. Worth the effort. Minor quibble would be that it's such an obvious choice for 45rpm given the track split, but oh well.

Got this new from vinyl-digital. Not too bad at all, sound is decent (the original album is prone to some odd sound-quality in the first place), and mine is pressed pretty evenly. Certainly not the most fantastic pressing I've ever heard, but... See full review

MOV are one of my favourite pressing companies. They always do great sounding stuff.

Sound quality is fine, but mine came misshapen due to bad cutting, which affects A1 and B1. Nothing too bad but a sign of bad quality control.

Listening to my VMP copy now. Little bit noisy, but not really anything worth writing about. Dynamics seem decent. Certainly a decent pressing, if not slightly above average.

Aw man, that's so stupid. Not the lack of a wide release (which I don't like), but calling this release a "fan edition". If it's a fan "edition", that suggests there will be a different edition. That was why I decided to wait. Now I'm out in the cold.

Just dropping in to say that this is a really nice, clean, beefy sounding pressing. Personally this is the first time I've ever heard this album and I'm loving it. Overlooked for sure.
