I certainly wouldn’t classify this as an “audiophile” pressing. Not very dynamic. Not awful, but lacking in certain respects.

Good sounding press. Especially Jacob’s Ladder. Clean, well defined mids, kick drum punch, and a solid yet still somewhat airy soundstage.

Decent sound overall, but some songs really shine: Southbound Pachyderm, and Del Davis Tree Farm.... wow. They sound exceptional.

This box set is very good quality, and the fidelity is the best I’ve heard for these albums.

Nice sounding press. Warm and rich and smooth, with just enough detail and texture in the meat of the instruments and vocals.

These Lenny reissues sound excellent. Spacious and well defined. While the original recording will prevent this album from ever being considered an audiophile record regardless of where it gets pressed or who masters it, they made the most of what was ... See full review

Really nice sounding reissue. Black background, minimal surface noise, improved dynamics over the original while still maintaining some of the sonic quirks that gave the original production/recording some uniqueness. Packaging gets a B- but the actual ... See full review

Ok, so I finally got around to playing this. While the remastering and remixing was done quite well, the quality of the pressing isn’t very good. Fidelity is solid, but there is a fair amount of background noise. Mine also has a slight warp and the edges ... See full review

Most Pumpkins songs have tons of guitar distortion. It’s supposed to.

Sounds verry good, but I have to admit the remastered version on CD sounds better.

Sounds like crap, and the Packaging is also most terrible.
posted a comment on Megadeth - Killing Is My Business And Business Is Good (The Final Kill). 7 months ago
Not just yours. I was expecting a high quality image for the cover, after how I was hearing that the art work was supposedly recreated. The packaging is average at best... below average actually. I haven’t spun it yet, so hopefully the fidelity ... See full review

Agreed, this is a juvenile cover. Who signed off on this ridiculously cheesy cover “art”? I sure hope the new Tool cover art isn’t so lame.

Mine sounds fantastic. It has attack, and yet it flows at the same time. Layered, dense, and still airy.

A solid album by Moz! But the vinyl sounds like crap. Stick to the CD.
posted a comment on Neil Young - Harvest Moon. about 1 year ago
Decent quality overall, some background noise but hoping it plays itself out after several spins. Yes, it’s apparent that it’s not sourced from analog tapes like most of the other Neil Young archive series pressings, but it’s still very solid. Some of ... See full review

The fidelity of this pressing leaves a lot to be desired. Vocals sound like crap, the cymbals sound harsh and with terrible roll off. While the percussion and bass guitar show improvement over the original mix, the rest of the sound quality comes across ... See full review
