Thanks Mondo for fucking up another beautiful soundtrack with pops and clicks. You figure with a delay these nimrods could have put more effort in these presses.

Mondotee's is known to be bad with communication, but in the end they do end up shipping out a quality product. Just hang in there.

It came in sadly and I wouldn't say it was quality. Noisey as hell as Mondo usual.

Does this have the whoosing noise bullshit on side b?
posted a comment on Interpol - Marauder. 9 months ago
Any one getting a whooshing noise on side b that is plaguing the opaque red releases? Matador of course won’t accept fault saying color pressings do that smfh

10th anniversary passed and nothing was done for the album. Shame. At least Silent Alarm got a UK repress 2 years ago.

Youre right it comes off translucent in the official band pic but it seems opaque as hugot said and it seems white from fan pics when that official pic showed a cream color

Opaque Red or Translucent Red? Mockups seems translucent like El Pintor but pics seem to be opaque

Edit: mine came in, it is opaque. Seems like translucent comes from the band’s website directly and opaque from matador.

So is it white or is it like a peachish tan color like the mock ups showed?

Did anyone have issues with “a warm place” & “The Downward Spiral” having surface noise theoughout the songs? Rest of the record sounds good and then those two songs tend to have surface noise with “Hurt” going in and out. I have had 2 copies with the ... See full review

I've gone through 2 copies and they all sound great except "Something I can Never Have" still has surface noise after multiple cleans. Is this a defect with all of them? Looks like having a proper copy is something I can never have.

Damnit I might have gotten a defective copy. It's not a bad sounding record but just sucks there's random pops when the record is so amazing in dynamics & melodies.

Any one else having surface noise issues with it? Ran through 2 cleans and it's still noisy at parts which sucks, it's a beautiful record.
posted a comment on Patti Smith - Horses. about 1 year ago
So some thoughts on pre clean, there is surface noise but very little. Just time from time, not sure if the music is so loud you can barely hear it but it's not that bad. The dynamics on the record are great, vocals and instrumentals really hit you. ... See full review

So is this a clear light blue? Looks nothing like the mock up or coke bottle but in a good way

Did anyone not get postcards from the band's website? I open the package and no post cards to be found anywhere. Just a standard gatefold with a dlc and vinyl.

Ugh so another shitty pressing from

Is there any way to get this record without paying $25 for shipping? Or from anywhere else? Good lord is that ridiculous. Or just wait out for the 45rpm Kevin said is being worked on?

Anyone have any surface noise issues? Ran through 2-3 cleans and still has surface noise throughout =/ I know no record could be perfect (though some are) I just hate having noise interfere in emotional low key music like this.

Allow me to interject, I don't know if I got really lucky but my copy sounds really great. Barely any noise. I'm an audio nazi so get annoyed by the smallest ticks and some ticks do happen but it's really awesome for a colored pressing especially with ... See full review

how's pressing sound? Wonder if GB actually cared to do a good pressing on black vinyl after bashing colored vinyl.

Yeah I'm beginning to doubt spin clean, seems like a waste of money but I don't towel clean I air dry and kept a purifier in my room to keep the dust to a min.
posted a comment on Fleet Foxes - Crack-Up. about 1 year ago
They're like an imperfectly pressed record bad. Not outrageous and unbearable but like a good copy of a Bon Iver record.

Not sure if it's intentional though.

Just want to mention the audio quality on this is pretty crappy too. Very low and some surface noise between songs.

My copy turned out to sound like crap. Quite a bits of pops nad clicks, I didn't test it out before I cleaned it but now I'm worried spin clean caused this. :(
