Salaam Remi - Black On Purpose
posted a review of Salaam Remi - Black On Purpose . about 1 month ago
Terrible pressing, worst in my entire collection. Disc 1 and 2 (red and yellow) are basically unlistenable (disc 3 is reasonably OK). A damn shame as it’s a really good album that ambitiously and successfully traverses a broad range of black urban... See full review

posted a review of Robert Glasper Experiment - Black Radio. 3 months ago
Haven't heard this edition but the extra material on here is extremely good stuff (most of it was previously issued on the 12-inch "Black Radio Recovered: The Remix EP", which is reproduced as side E-F here). This edition has even more additional... See full review

The tracklist entered on Discogs for this LP was completely wrong and missing two tracks, but has now been corrected. There are 5 tracks per side, as per the record labels (which are correct). The LP has 1 track which isn't on the CD (Bunny Castle),... See full review

Overall, it does have structure. But insofar as it doesn't, that's because it transcends orthodox structure

This is the best DJ mix I've ever heard. It resides rent-free in my subconscious. I never tire of revisiting it.

posted a comment on The Mars Volta - De-Loused In The Comatorium. about 1 year ago
As others have reported, both discs are slightly warped, which is a little disappointing. My tonearm is bucking up and down. Having said that, it's not actually affecting the sound as far as I can tell, and it sounds great. I also have the original... See full review

Perfect pressing. As good as it gets. Dead flat and not even a single crackle or pop. Great sound. I'm genuinely impressed.

My copy of the purple US version sounds excellent, right through. No quality complaints
Deepchord - Northern Shores EP
posted a comment on Deepchord - Northern Shores EP. about 1 year ago
Digital/vinyl are exactly the same. I think "Sand and Shore" is just somebody's typo on Discogs? It doesn't really make sense as a name, if you think about it.

I don't have an original pressing to compare it to, but I think it sounds amazing. I have a couple other of these half-speed pressings (Marvin Gaye, Amy Winehouse, and also Exodus) and they're some of the very nicest sounding records I have. There's a... See full review

Unfortunate to see a number of people seem to have bad-sounding copies. My copy sounds great, I have no complaints whatsoever.

As described in Notes, printing is a bit soft and has some errors, records sound absolutely fine though.

The evolution theme and artwork for this series is very fitting, yet at the same time quite amusingly ironic given the overwhelming sentiment expressed in reggae, as I have gleaned it, is blatant ignorance and denial of this encompassing theory.

Little known fact - track 2 surprised everyone by charting in the caliphate at number 1 for three weeks running in December 2014, 20 years after its original release. A repress was rumoured but it never really got off the ground.
Helena Hauff - Qualm
posted a comment on Helena Hauff - Qualm. over 4 years ago
I didn't like it at first either but I changed my mind. I really think you are missing something great. There is actually a lot of complexity and psychedelic energy in it, and it is very pleasing to the ear up loud on a good sound system.
