Bumpy Road is the track, six and a half minutes of brutal trippiness...

Thats on the back of my copy, not yours too?

Great score! I payed NZ$125 for this second hand, still worth it though..
posted a review of Crows (7) - Silver Tongues. 27 days ago
Heard about these guys by being a fan of Idles as they're on Joe Talbot's label, wow this record is good! There is a comparison to JAMC, but with a more beefed up sound and plenty of squally over distorted guitars. As good as anything by Idles, if not ... See full review

Nope, got myself a nice flat one here, second-hand though..

Exquisite reissue, Lanegan's first solo album, he certainly hit the ground running with this one..
posted a review of Cold Pumas - The Hanging Valley. 6 months ago
What a hidden gem of a record, Cold Puma's do their version of motorik, propulsive post-punk so well, could listen to this all day quite easily..

Yep, thats a good reason, he is a fantastic drummer..
posted a review of The Effigies - Fly On A Wire. 9 months ago
What a lost classic, early 80's Chicago punk rock at its finest. Excellent stuff..
posted a comment on Disappears - Irreal. 9 months ago
Wow, really like this record, so dark with a nice mixture of instruments and electronic sounds. The pressing is kind of on the quiet side, not necessarily a bad thing, just need a bit more volume..
posted a comment on The Breeders - Last Splash. 9 months ago
Yes, this issue, it sounds perfect. Never heard a reissue of this album, but I'd say the 2018 reissue would sound fine because my Pod does..

Two Librans is my favourite Fall track, it's bloody fantastic..

So you like the music on the album or not...?
posted a comment on Wire - Pink Flag. about 1 year ago
I don't know what AAA is, but yes, these are official reissues from their own label..
posted a review of Ghostpoet - Dark Days + Canapés. about 1 year ago
The pressing is a little on the quiet side, but thats not a bad thing, just turn it up a bit more. A consistently excellent album, sounds a lot like Mezzanine era Massive Attack, down-tempo style with brooding lyrics. Definitely my cuppa tea..
posted a review of Shame (19) - Songs Of Praise. about 1 year ago
What a refreshing, excellent and talented young band, this being their debut they should only get better. Pressing is alright, needs a bit of volume, but the band itself are talented beyond their young years..
posted a review of Morphine (2) - Good. about 1 year ago
Amazing pressing, recorded and mastered so well. Never released on vinyl on first release date, only on CD or cassette. Glad I managed to get this 2013 first time on vinyl version, the sound dynamics are wonderful.
posted a review of Salad Boys - This Is Glue. about 1 year ago
This album deserves a much bigger position in the public domain than it more than likely will, instead of a small minority that will probably hear it. Three young dudes from Christchurch, NZ, bringing an updated contemporary version to the 'Flying Nun' ... See full review

Great reissue and a great debut from Mudhoney, sound is terrific. Includes the cool poster too. Turn it up!
posted a comment on The Breeders - All Nerve. about 1 year ago
They are quite similar, it is a certain style. I think the designer of the sleeve artwork, Chris Bigg has done some type of homage to Vaughan Oliver for this release as Oliver was the artwork designer for a lot of Pixies and past Breeders albums..
posted a review of The Breeders - All Nerve. about 1 year ago
Very good pressing this, on my system its almost like hearing them live in the studio, each instrument clear and precise, a job very well done. Also mention must go the The Breeders still making such awesome music after all these years after a long break ... See full review
posted a comment on The Cult - Pure Cult The Singles 1984 - 1995. about 1 year ago
Agreed the 12" singles sound the best, can't beat them. But this is pretty good, turned up a couple of notch's above normal playback and it gets really rocking. 'Coming Down' is such an awesome track!
posted a review of Prml Scrm* - Live In Japan. about 1 year ago
Stellar record. Usually I'm quite wary of 'live' records as the sound quality can be sub-par compared to studio recordings, but this is really good, some of the tracks, for example, 'Swastika Eyes' are even better than the original versions..
posted a review of Pearl Jam - Pearl Jam. about 1 year ago
Yep, warped disc one here too, took it back to the store and exchanged, same issue, warped disc one. Can't be arsed changing it again, its playable, but annoying to say the least.

Me too, such a perfect song, Wire do it again..
posted a comment on Fugazi - Instrument Soundtrack. about 1 year ago
Bloody brilliant record this, fantastic pressing, sounds like Fugazi are playing live in your living room. And this is the one Ian MacKaye says he likes the most because it's closest to how they sounded live..
posted a comment on Depeche Mode - Exciter. about 1 year ago
Ultra is a great album, my second favourite from DM, worth it just for the awesome track 'Useless' alone!
posted a comment on Pearl Jam - No Code. about 1 year ago
The original pressing does sound much better, I have both..

It probably doesn't get much better than this, phenomenal pressing, well done these guys, but most thanks goes to Bob..

Terrific pressing, best one I've heard. Actually, I highly recommend this version, it sounds incredible, like it's straight off the recording console..

Think you got a bad one, mine sounds absolutely perfect, clear as a bell..
posted a comment on Faith No More - King For A Day Fool For A Lifetime. about 1 year ago
So sick of reading stuff like this, what a load of bollocks, listening to this pressing its fine, sounds full and clear, great instrument separation. Get a decent system..

Only just discovering this album in 2017, wow what a beauty, great songs from start to finish and this original pressing is excellent!
posted a comment on The Black Crowes - Shake Your Money Maker. about 1 year ago
Yeah its not that bad, I just turned mine up a bit more than usual, sounds fine, not mind-blowing amazing or anything, but atrocious, no way. 3/5.
posted a review of Protomartyr (2) - Relatives In Descent . about 1 year ago
Terrific record, nice quiet pressing, packaging is generous with a big fold out poster and a zine full or lyrics and art images. But, its the music that really counts and this is A+
posted a comment on Pixies - Doolittle 25. about 1 year ago
How good is the updated 'Original' version of this? Quite possibly the very best version its that good, bright, loud, clear, bass-y, wow!! ..

posted a comment on The Beatles - The Ballad Of John And Yoko. about 1 year ago
I concur, plus it has Old Brown Shoe on the b-side which makes it probably the best Beatles record ever made..
posted a review of Spiritualized - Lazer Guided Melodies. about 1 year ago
My copy is definitely cut at 45rpm and sounds terrific, some bad reviews here on this pressing, but there must be some good ones out there, because mine plays absolutely fine. Go figure.
posted a comment on Savages (2) - Silence Yourself. about 1 year ago
One of the best albums of the 2010's so far and an absolute blinding pressing, sounds bang on!!
posted a review of Mark Lanegan Band - Gargoyle. over 2 years ago
Absolutely brilliant record from Lanegan again, his consistency and output is amazing, Gargoyle being right up there with his best work. Also, have to mention ex-Pearl Jam drummer Jack Irons doing a great job on this one too. My favourite album of 2017 ... See full review

Great pressing, nice and quiet, packaging simple, but effective. The music - Wire do it again, another consistent, high quality release of their signature sound..

No problems here, nice flat pressing, punchy bass and clear mids/highs..
posted a review of Talking Heads - Speaking In Tongues. over 2 years ago
Just don't agree with the reviews below, this pressing is great, sounds fresh, full and snappy, the brilliant production on this record comes through very nicely. Maybe people are playing their records on sub-par gear....?
posted a comment on Morphine (2) - Yes. over 2 years ago
Just recently brought this from a seller on Discogs, so happy I did, you can't go wrong with anything from Morphine, all their albums are great and this reissue sounds wonderful. Expensive now, so glad I got it before the price hit's the roof..

Great band, great album! Sorry to hear these guys have called it quits, think they still had plenty of great music in them, as each album just got better and better right up to this gem. Well done Maccabees, best of luck..

Not sure why properlejdi is saying this pressing is so crappy, I have this also, currently playing it as typing this and it sounds really good. I think a lot of records, it actually comes down to what equipment you are playing them on. On my gear this is ... See full review
