posted a review of John Lennon - Imagine (Raw Studio Mixes). 4 months ago
First impressions - a really interesting alternate take on the material that we know very well. The presence of the instrumentation is very forward and direct, and the vulnerability in John's vocals feels more apparent now that they've been stripped of ... See full review

Sorry! I've sold it already. Best of luck to ya.

Can someone explain why a 44 minute album is pressed into four separate sides?

I think he's referring to the fact that on the original LP, side 1 closed with "Isolation", now it closes with "Remember", probably due to the addition of the bonus tracks.

I can unequivocally that this pressing sounds phenomenal. I don't have any other edition to compare it to but it's one of the highlights of my collection.

Does anyone know how this sounds? It looks to be the original, unedited versions of these tracks, but adds up to an LP-busting 57 minutes. Curious to hear if it sounds at all compressed.

Anyone have this? Curious how it sounds. One of the few releases I've seen that spreads the original, unedited tracks over two LPs.

I cleaned the record on the Audio Deck and it really didn't improve the noise levels. Must be manufacturing.

Hm, yeah I've been wondering about that in general (wattage/speaker combo). Actually, have you ever built your own loudspeakers before? I'm looking to renovate a mid-century credenza that forms the base of my system. Although, typically, my other records ... See full review

Strangely, side A's end is at the limit of my tonearm's reach, so it skips in place right before the lead out groove. Anyone else have this issue?

Yeah, speakers as well. Do you have a previous edition? I'd be curious to compare it to an original pressing. I kept switching between my vinyl setup (Pro-Ject RPM1 w/ acrylic base, Hana SH Stylus, Peachtree nova 300 integrated, KEF Q300 Speakers) and ... See full review

Y'all. Does anybody else think this is a TERRIBLE edition? I've been comparing it to a compressed digital version, and this sounds somehow much worse, more compressed, muddier bass. Ugh.

Hey guys! I accidentally bought two copies of "Brawlers" when I intended one of them to be "Bastards". Can anyone do a swap?

Or: have "the less i know the better" close out B. That way it feels balanced with the runtimes of the other sides.
posted a review of Tame Impala - Currents. about 1 year ago
Something that truly, truly bugs me from a tracklist design point of view. "Gossip" was meant to seamlessly transition into "The Less I Know The Better", and on the digital version this works very well. (It's even implied by the titles of the songs and ... See full review

To my ears, sounds like an excellent, clean pressing. Curious what other folks feel about it, especially compared to other releases.
posted a review of Panda Bear - Tomboy. about 1 year ago
My feeling is that all of the Panda Bear vinyl issues, and this one in particular, don't sound particularly great. Maybe there's something inherently digital to his process of making music that isn't lifted by the vinyl format, or maybe the masterings ... See full review

My copy sounds quite good. Perhaps a little thin (I was hoping for a greater dynamic range), but certainly clean and not at all distorted.

I believe I have this version, with no gatefold, but my runout is slightly different, with a "T" on both sides. Any idea of the year?

The second half of a brand new record had a great deal of surface noise.
