I'm not hearing the issues you're hearing. Bass is full, but not overpowering on my setup (Rega P6 through Magnepans and Polk sub). If anything, I'm hearing an emphasis on the mids. Maybe just your copy?

Same here. I ran my copy through an ultrasonic and a vacuum. Terrible surface noise. Such a shame because the album is great.

My god, this album is good. I originally had one of the limited editions and returned it because of surface noise. This pressing is quiet with great dynamics. Once you go black....

Yeah, same here. What's the deal with that? Had to really work to get the discs out of the inners, but they play great. Really happy with the quality.

My copy of this is actually very quiet crackle-wise. There were lots of pops out of the sleeve. A little cleaning with some IPA and it sounds great.

Got a brand new copy of this and really disappointed in the pressing. The 2nd disc was warped, not unplayable but audible. Crackles all over the place. I ran this through my ultrasonic and my Record Doctor, so this is not the case of a dirty record.... See full review

Inter Arma - Garbers Days Revisited
posted a comment on Inter Arma - Garbers Days Revisited. over 2 years ago
This album is worth it for their cover of March of the Pigs on its own. Inter Arma are a metal band that take influence from thrash, death, sludge and doom, but always sound like themselves. Makes for a compelling covers album.

Bought my copy from Amazon. Has a little bit of a warp, but nothing that affects play. Sounds beautiful after running it through my cleaner. Recommended.
The Cult - Sonic Temple

One of the better pressings in my collection. Sounds a lot fuller than original pressings of this amazing album. The Cult can be a very midrange-y band. This mix adds a lot of power to the rhythm section and updates the sound quite a bit.

Confirmed that there's bad distortion on my copy on side B, especially toward the center grooves. Great music, disappointing quality.

This pressing sounds fantastic. Super quiet and great dynamic range. By the way, the bass level is adjusted during mixing and mastering, not pressing the actual albums. You can cut a record hot, but in this case it's just bassy music, so...... If your... See full review

I love the content of this box set. The issue here is the vinyl. The albums themselves were very dirty. A dip in the ultrasonic got most of it, but still some clicks and pops. The biggest issue was the sleeves. Each disk slides into a fold-out pocket,... See full review

How is this classified as indie rock when it comes in a sleeve with RCA plastered all over it?

100% agree with you. This is a great sounding picture disk.

Heads and shoulders better than previous pressings, which I considered to be unlistenable. Very clean pressing that makes the songs sound even more intimate. This is the one to get if you want this album.

This is probably the first good repressing I’ve owned of the album. I’ve been through several. Good sound quality and it’s actually very quiet.

Love this album, but this pressing seems to be off-center on side A. Sounds OK up to the last track where everything sounds woozy. I can see the tonearm swaying like a drunk man on a trampoline. Kind of a shame. Need to hunt down the 2008 repress.
The Black Angels - Phosphene Dream
posted a comment on The Black Angels - Phosphene Dream. over 4 years ago
Lots of dirt and grains of excess vinyl that put some surface scratches on side A before I even took out the record. One spin on the record took care of a lot of the issue, however. Very sloppy pressing.

Usually not my cup of tea, but the laidback songs on this album are fantastic. Great record.

Initial play had some crackling in the right channel. Took it for a spin on the Record Doctor and it’s now playing fine. Sounds amazing. Very dynamic sound with a clear mix that’s not too bright.

The compilation of songs is great, but what happened to the pressing? Shipped to me sealed with a second copy of the 4th LP packed in, which I’ve seen when they catch a pressing error early. In this case, neither one of the discs played through... See full review

For someone looking to plug this hole in my vinyl alternative rock collection, can't do better than this. Yeah, there isn't a lot of archival material. Honestly, I'm not really interested in that. Having been a fan since the 80s and having spun my CD... See full review

Music on Vinyl does it again. This record sounds great. Much more expansive sounding than the CD, which I must have listened to 1000 times.

Anyone have a copy that is wildly off-center on side B? Wondering if I need to return the copy and go with a different pressing

I got a copy of this from VNYL and it's horribly off-center. The sound is distorted and crackly. I'm assuming the grooves have been affected because the sound clarity and volume vary with each rotation. The music is great, but this pressing is terrible.

Nope, 33. I typically hate releases like this, but have to admit the sound quality is amazing. Much better than the single disc version.
