This one feels lighter than 180g, perhaps 120g. Excellent pressing and sound quality nonetheless.

My copy has 'exp' in the runout grooves, along with another matrix number, all etched in. But the stamped numbers remain the same.
Copyright is 2015 but no sticker nor download card to be seen whatsoever. Strange isn't it?

Same thing over here, also some matrix number looked scratched-off

SD fans just know what's up with that B2 track.

It definitely didn't strike me at first but yeah, LP1 is defo mono. I rather have it in stereo obvs but it didn't bother me that much.
That said for that price, it's a bit of a shame.

Much better sounding than the completely muddy original and cut at a very satisfying level. Obviously, this album never sounded hi-fi by any means but this is much better than anything I've heard in the past. It's probably been made from a... See full review

Listen to this record whilst on cake, it's the best experience one could ever wish. It cured my Czech neck.

This one got repressed apparently. RPs come in a generic inner sleeve and no outer sleeves. At least in my case.

This record is as powerful as the T-posing seen on the label.

Proper 2003-era styled ACTUAL dubstep.
A bit dark and hissy though, not sure if it's the aesthetics or the mastering.
Best release I've heard in ages.
posted a comment on Icicle - Raising The Dead. about 1 year ago
Nah mate, it would have fit and sounded decent enough, even with both sides running at 45 RPM. These tracks are short enough, I'm guessing they did that to keep the one tune per side pattern that Sentry had kept going since its first release.

Sticker goes over the run-out grooves, so be careful. Good luck removing it without damaging it.

I'm guessing they said that because of the sample that goes "not for publication, it was like Dubplate".

Comes in like a breath of fresh air and a punch to the guts.
As massive as beautiful.

Not sure why 2x12 with one track per side would have been that necessary, but what is sure is that this record cannot sound any better, and oh boy does it sound good. Top notch production, and ridiculously insane quality.

>D1's remix is a must have for Skream / Youngsta fans

Sounds really, really good if you forget about the surface noise. It had to be expected with this amount of music per sides anyway.
Other than that, pressing is is flawless and it's got heavy bass to boot despite the quiet volume.
Musically, it's a... See full review

As I've stated previously in a YouTube comment, I can almost confirm that Ruff Draft is one of A Made Up Sound's monikers.
Pinch played this (Shining) at the end of a Tectonic takeover set on Boiler Room back in 2011.

During this set, at one point... See full review

My thoughts word for word. It could be used to transition between breaky 2-step and other ghetto genres.

[quote=porkpie_hat] Wow, I guess I'm super lucky since my EU vinyl copy sounds PERFECT. I don't have any of the issues you note, and I certainly cranked it up LOUD a few times... It came with a free mp3 download as well, which is OK for iphone, etc.... See full review

Side A is said to be at "(33 rpm)" but was actually cut at 45... It's odd but it does sound really good at 33 RPM. You should try it out !
posted a comment on TOKiMONSTA - Midnight Menu. over 4 years ago
Nearly perfect pressing, not that noisy but a tad bass shy (each side is over 20 minutes long...) and has loud clicks at the beginning of side B.
Completely flat, and comes in a poly-lined sleeve... Excellent overall.
posted a comment on MF Doom - Operation: Doomsday. over 4 years ago
Pressing is more or less quiet but causes some good deal of high-end mistracking, probably stems from a bad cut, pretty damn listenable nonetheless. No clicks or wooshing bouts of surface noise to be heard like many feared.

Mail preorder one
Side A : perfectly quiet
Side B : non-fill, scratch in right channel at every revolution
Side C : perfectly quiet
Side D : my copy's been pressed with a red pencil lead in the grooves that no amount of cleaning could remove. In the... See full review

Compared to any digital transfer I've heard (apart from the quadraphonic SACD) this one preserves the timbre of the synths and drums that used to feel completely blurred for some unknown reasons... (probably generation loss)
This one is the real deal !

My pressing sounds okay overall but once you get to the inner grooves, it starts to crackle and spew static like firecrackers in a frying pan, quite disconcerting but it's nothing that can't be fixed through digitisation and extensive crackle... See full review

And by doing that you'd kill the intent and organisation of the record itself. The tracklist is made as is. It's a dead end and if you weren't ready to flip sides then you should have got the CD instead.

You're missing the point. Please learn about this very issue's re-mixing and mastering process before criticising it.

People complaining about how much space is wasted etc have no clue. If you were to split this album into two sides it would sound like crap : you can't cram about 20 minutes worth of bass heavy, distorted electronic material onto one side without... See full review

Listened to it, sounds okay despite the lack of bass and atrocious surface noise (that builds from beginning to end) even after being cleaned thoroughly. Side A is cut very close to the label and the lead-in groove is extremely large. Both sides are... See full review

Mine has the unknown ballad on it ! I bought it the day it came out for €15. No idea how that affects its value, though.

Vinyl isn't totally clear, it has plenty of other vinyl particles of different colours scattered all around. Haven't listened to it yet but sounds promising. :P
