Hey! Welcome to my den.

I am first and foremost a collector, and mainly sell vinyls and CDs from my collection that I feel I don't need. And to make some space. At least that's what I'm trying to convince myself of. :)

I try to playgrade as many records as I can. However, if it doesn't say it's playgraded, then it might not be. I enjoy doing it though, so if you want me to playgrade a vinyl or you're wondering if it is playgraded, just let me know, no problem at all.

I try to include any and all pertinent info about the release/condition - the way I want it myself as a buyer.

I do not ship outside the US. This is because a CD costs $15 to ship international, and a vinyl $25, and I don't expect anyone to be willing to pay that much. I also have to go to a special post office quite far from where I live to ship internationally, plus a few other factors that are in the way. All in all, it's not worth it for either party.

Cheers - thanks for stopping by, and if you have any questions send me a message. I generally reply quickly.

It's actually a pretty good thing seeing all the comments about how much the Skinny Puppy re-issues suck, then ordering them anyway, cause your expectations are close to zero so they're bound to sound better than you expect. Anyway, having actually... See full review

I've read all the criticism as for the Skinny Puppy re-issues, but still caved in and bought all of them. Maybe I got lucky with my copy of Rabies - but it actually sounds excellent - no surface noise and very few pops. Dynamic range is very good on... See full review

With 8,000 copies being pressed, all you have to do is wait another week instead of buying for highly inflated prices here or on eBay - it's been the same with all the other Cure picture discs... No need to give your hard-earned cash to sellers trying... See full review

Sounds great, much to my surprise. Sounds remastered to me, but doesn't say anything about that anywhere. Great soundstage, nice punch, clear highs. The only downside is a lot of surface hiss, as with all picture discs.

Fantastic pressing. One could argue that there's a slight lack of high end, but that's how it was recorded and released back in 1989, so any attempt to add more pronounced highs would not be true to the recording and original pressing. Very pleased... See full review

You must have had bad luck with your copy - mine sounds absolutely amazing, the best pressing of Ultra I've heard. It's got great dynamic range, nice punch, both low and high ends sounds fantastic.
posted a comment on The Cure - Faith. about 1 month ago
It sounds really good - very "full" sound with good dynamics - my copy has a bit of light crackling throughout and some pops though. But, that's too be expected these days I guess. Either way, definitely worth getting if it's not too expensive.

Same with my copy, sounds like garbage. I found that cleaning it on my record cleaning machine brought the crackling down somewhat, and it gave this pool of mud at least a fraction of life with a bit more pronounced highs. But, still not very... See full review

Too much surface noise for it to be enjoyable. Also fairly muddy sound, but a RCM cleaning showed it's true potential - big improvement, but still too much surface noise.

My copy was full of clicks and pops, and the sound was/is dull, muddy and lifeless. I say is, because cleaning it on my Pro-ject VC-S2 ALU did absolutely nothing. Too bad for such a classic album. Hey at least it wasn't warped...

No, it has a different runout so it was repressed later. It also does not have a Legacy sticker, and no Legacy logo on label. It hasn't been around til last year. All this is in the listing and/or submission notes.

This is most likely a 2020 pressing. I bought it from Amazon (US) late 2020, so if you need it for your collection I'd buy it from there and it will likely be this particular pressing.

When I saw it was a 1 disc release, I was sure they were gonna skip the last track. There's no justifying doing a 1 disc release of this one when the total playing time is a whopping 53 minutes. Should have been a 2x12" like the previous re-issue.

"I think it sounds pretty damn good for how much music is pressed on each side." - isn't that kind of the point here? Why put over 50 minutes on one LP? If they had cut this on 2x12" like the previous re-issue, it could have been half decent at... See full review

Great re-issue in every way. Sounds great, and not a single pop, no surface noise - nothing disturbing at all. This goes to show that it is possible to make quality pressings nowadays (which is more of an exception unfortunately), and to a very... See full review

Sound quality is indeed excellent on this re-release (unlike The Innocents for example), but it has waaaay too many pops and clicks so definitely needs a cleaning before enjoying it.

Seems plausible. Mine is a really weird pressing - side A sounds like garbage (very muffled, surface noise, have to crank it), then flipping to side B I had to take the volume down and the sound is pretty good. Nothing spectacular, but definitely a... See full review

Just a hunch, or call it an educated guess - I would have to think that the bigger the order, the more they care about the end result (well, to the best of their ability). I've got pressings from top names like Depeche Mode (can you believe Sony... See full review

It's pressed by GZ Media, so no wonder it doesn't sound great. Mine was free of clicks and pops though, and wasn't warped, as is common for GZ pressed vinyl. Can't believe they choose that plant for this re-release. Disappointing.

Not a very good remaster imo, and not a very good pressing. There's too much mid in many of the song, some are almost painful listening to. Also lacks low end. In Chaos At The Airport the kick drum is distorted, not sure how they managed to miss that,... See full review

Overall I'd say that the soundquality is really good on this one. The high mids and highs in general is a little too abrasive though, which is noticeable especially in Everything's Gone Green (Bernard's guitar is a bit too piercing). This is a bit... See full review

This pressing plant might just lead to the death of vinyl. 95% of all releases that are pressed by this plant are warped - ranging from just a slight warp if you're lucky, to the point of being unplayable. It's so bad I'm considering skipping every... See full review
