It's a little bit weird that this gets reissued when there's been a perfectly fine one floating about for years - regardless this was done beautifully by Everland Psych!

The prices are steep but if you can afford it, this is the one to get. If not I... See full review

The US gold pressing was cut by Chris Bellman but not the EU gold.

Is this pressing ok? quality issues only concern the 2017 press?


Finally played my copy today — Side A is flawless but there's some nasty non-fill on Side B. The ripping sounds wouldn't be as intrusive on most records, but... See full review

Disclosure: never had a problem with my copy of the 2016 reissue, but it's amazing how I didn't need to clean this one and it sounds *flawless*.

Bought this repress at import price the day before Wewantsounds announced their worldwide reissue. I should feel bad, but this sounds amazing enough to wipe away the pain!!

Previously owned the LITA version which was very well made, with insightful English liner notes (and an interview with Hosono himself) - but this one has a sturdy tip-on sleeve and an incredible cut by Bernie Grundman. Plus, it's still the cheaper... See full review

Highest respect to LITA for doing this so right! Can't think of any other better way to put this out.

Is it official? Probably not. Does it sound great? Hell yeah it does. Comes on dead quiet vinyl too. Good shit!

Sounds pristine! Almost every MOV title I have is really nicely pressed, this is no different.
posted a comment on Sam McClellan - Music Of The Five Elements. about 1 year ago
This sounds brilliant! And it's also very quiet without any wet clean.

Where did you think SV messed up with this? I've had no problems with the pressing, and it sounds leaps above streaming.
posted a comment on Angel Olsen - All Mirrors. about 1 year ago
Strangely that was the case for me on first playback, and at fairly low volume, but played it louder the second time and it sounds much better. I have no way to explain it, but that's what it is for me.
posted a comment on Angel Olsen - All Mirrors. about 1 year ago
There's definitely going to be a lot of noise about the abundant deadwax on each side, but it sounds phenomenal! Amazing album too.

2nd pressing on cassette + vinyl incoming! A few vinyl copies left: https://eveningchants.bandcamp.com/album/kwaidan

It's fine, definitely less fatiguing than streaming. Not sure who cut this but I can imagine it would sound miles better in the hands of a skilled sound engineer.

There isn't much info about the label that reissued this, and it arrived without any shrinkwrap or outer sleeve. That being said, it sounds great. Pressed on weighty vinyl, feels close to 180g. The new artwork could've used less Photoshop editing, but... See full review

The record was covered in static when opened — but it's also one of the cleanest new records I've ever gotten. It sounds fantastic too.

I think that's just your turntable. A pressing error like that wouldn't have gone unnoticed.

Got these under a round of wet cleaning and there's a lil bit of pops and crackles on Side 3, but nothing significant!

I think there's an error here. The other two variants of this 2019 issue list runout etchings of an in-house GZ cut, but this one has the same runout information as the original pressing.

So glad Sunn have put this out to the world, and in AAAA (extra A for Albini)

Any news if this EU pressing has the same Kevin Gray stamper as the US?
posted a comment on The Comet Is Coming - Trust In The Lifeforce Of The Deep Mystery. about 1 year ago
Hmm... different runout etchings here. Is it safe to say the Bernie Grundman cut is exclusive to the US pressing? This happened with the Metallica/Lou Reed album (BG for US press, in-house GZ cut for EU).
posted a comment on Rupa - Disco Jazz. about 1 year ago
Agreed. A homebrew cleaning solution + vinyl vac takes care of most non-cosmetic problems I have with new records. Can't wait to get this.

There's pressing issues, but it actually sounds better after a round of cleaning with a Vinyl Vac.

Not sure why you think this is unnecessary. This specific reissue has only three colour variants, one of which has been long OOS. You know what's unnecessary? All the variants for the new Smashing Pumpkins album.

Dense atmospherics meet rumbling synths and heavy metal guitars, the latter courtesy of Sunn O)))'s Stephen O'Malley. This pressing does it justice.

Rico Nasty fucking rules and I'm glad VMP recognized that. Stop hunting for overpriced Saba/Flatbush/Kyle records, get this off VMP (it's still available if you're a member) and blast this on your stereo.

This is cut LOUD and pressed wonderfully. With a manually silkscreened cover and a poly-lined sleeve to boot, get this before it's all snapped up like the previous reissue.

www.hisonvinyl.com (now inactive) did an SQ comparison between this vs the US Sub Pop pressing and determined that this is sounds leagues ahead compared to the other. I've never had the chance to own the latter but the former sounds amazing.

There are some decent prices on Discogs for this record right now. Don't think - buy it. It sounds fucking phenomenal.

EDIT (14/10/20): these prices are fucking wack lol

I'd say just keep an eye on hmv.co.jp from time to time — reissued city pop records get repressed once in a while.

I must have good luck with Death Waltz reissues bc this sounds fantastic to me, w/ the exception of slight crackles that fade into the music easily.

I guess one way to distinguish the OG from the 2004 remix is the gang vox on Take No Prisoners. Would love to get this if it's the OG mix!
