The music is fantastic. The sound is terrible, particularly the drums. Cymbals sound like cardboard boxes. Avoid!

Mine has surface noise as well. Definitely impacts my enjoyment of the album.

Altitudes + Attitude* - Get It Out
posted a review of Altitudes + Attitude* - Get It Out. about 1 year ago
This is a surprisingly enjoyable album, much closer to Foo Fighters than either Anthrax or Megadeth. Strong songwriting, good production, and lots of hooks. Just don't expect that this will be a metal album. It's pure alt-rock/pop.

The music is incredible, but the recording quality is pretty inferior. Be prepared for poor bootleg quality.

Mine is white. Unfortunately, it also came severely bent. Oh well.

Discs one and two are exceptional, but disc three is something of a letdown.

Mine is also pretty wrapped. The sound is great but there is definitely some movement during play.

"Mr. Doormat," "Goodbye, Chicago," and "If I Were A Carpenter" are great. The remaining songs are middling.

Solid slab of fuzzed-out 70s rock. Definitely worth some listens.

Agreed completely. It's pretty terrible actually. And the recording quality is suspect as well.

My copy, LBV03, is also green vinyl. Not sure if there are other colored vinyl editions, and if the color should be added to the entry.
