Word of warning, I have received two copies of this and both were very badly warped / dished. Both records raise off the turntable by 5mm (!) every rotation. Anyone else have this issue??

Buying in 2021, and it sounds incredible. Sad to hear of others having issues with their copies but mine is one of the quietest records I own. I own the original, the remastered CD, and tape... and this sounds the best of the bunch.

Going to put my two cents in and say that my copy is pretty crackly even after a thorough cleaning and playing. Pretty disappointed when all is said and done. Not sure if it's due to the marbling effect or if it is simply a crackly master that wasn't... See full review

Does this run at 33.3 or 45? I just picked up Tekken 2 and was shocked to see Side A has 13 tracks running at 45 RPM!

posted a comment on Various - Shenmue II. 5 months ago
A darker and less romantic set of tracks when compared to the first game's soundtrack. This makes it less of an easy listen and overall is likely to be listened to less (at least by myself) but there are still nice moments here. It's just not as... See full review

Almost certain it said limited to 400 when it was first put on Bandcamp, but you're right, it doesn't currently say that. Maybe to stop scalpers? Who knows.

The prints are absolutely glorious, definitely frame worthy. Sounds great as usual with Data Discs but the concept artwork just pushes this release to new heights.

My copy sounds great, no issues. Plus the download is of WAV files.
posted a review of Aleksi Perälä - Mental Union. 8 months ago
An enjoyable listen but also one that you have to be patient with. It's long and in all honesty could have been trimmed down but it still has some great moments. Personally, I prefer everything Aleksi has put out since this but this has the seeds of... See full review

Look under 'Barcode and Other Identifiers', all I can think is that some where pressed at a different place or time?

I can't in good conscience give this more than 3/5 but it definitely has a worse wrap then it deserves. Worth keeping in mind this is a soundtrack, for a soundtrack it holds up amazingly well with many songs that could have fit on a Stevie album of... See full review

Flim and Bouncing Ball are incredibly unique pieces of electronic music. Incredibly beautiful. The two Come To Daddy tracks I kinda glaze over although they're not bad, but they pale in comparison. Like others have stated, I wish we could get the full... See full review

Strange release in that it is basically the second 12" from the album with different labels. Also, worth noting, both sides run dangerously close to the label. Wouldn't be surprised if it doesn't play well on auto-return turntables. Nevertheless the... See full review

Just got this and now realised all the tracks except Diskomo Live are on Residue which I already own... dagnabbit! If a completionist who wants to swap this for 'Diskomo / Goosebumps' let me know.
posted a review of PJ Harvey - Dry - Demos. 11 months ago
Like being at an intimate and paired back acoustic set. The presence is great. I still prefer the album over the demos but this has a nice and different atmosphere.

In terms of pressing, my first copy had three glue splodges on 'Happy & Bleeding', my... See full review
posted a comment on P J Harvey* - Dry. 11 months ago
They've gone for the 'authentic route' and made it as close to the original as possible. So no tip-on, opens at the top rather than side, fairly thin card stop, no lyric sheet, black inner sleeve etc etc
posted a comment on Dinosaur L - 24 - 24 Music. 11 months ago
Great sounding reissue. As for the music itself, it's an intoxicating and often slap dash affair. Some of the tracks would be reworked to much better shape by Arthur as well as Francois Kevorkian, Larry Levan and Walter Gibbons. Still, these more... See full review

Awesome thank you! Relief. Were you unhappy with Dry in anyway? I guess it can take a clean / couple of listens before a record plays its most optimal.
posted a comment on P J Harvey* - Dry. 11 months ago
Good to hear! Love the sound of the original. Good to hear this may be on par. Have you listened to the demos? Seem like a good pressing too?

Thank you thank you for clearing this up, as someone who really loves Popol Vuh but hadn't listened past the mid 80's this did confuse me a bit. It sounded to me like a compilation of different artists but now I understand that's not really the case.... See full review

My turntable bust on me the day this arrived, gutted! Anyone comment on the pressing quality? I'd advice everyone put their records in a paper/poly sleeve asap as the sleeve this comes in looks like it'll mess the record up over time.
