Dont have this RSD release, but the original sounded like crap and I think now they crammed too much on each side - should of have been 45 RPM 2LP and with no bonus tracks.

Who cut and pressed this RSD re-issue? Deadwax information? Thank you!

My copy has a huge non-fill at the beginning of side A.

And this is not cut by Kevin Gray btw, pressed and cut by MPO in France.

At some point, the EU press artwork has gone through some changes - it looks very different from the one I purchased in 2012 - more saturated and maybe a little warped looking.

Question. Is the EU press also cut by Kevin Gray?

The EU re-issue is underwhelming. It is not cut by Kevin Gray. Pressed by MPO, my copy (B side) plays off-center too. Sound is digital.

Is this Speakers Corner variant still in print? I havent managed to order this from a local record store for years. Yesterday it was just standing there (new and sealed) - the insert seems to be recent too, definitely not from 2008.

I havent listened to my copy yet. I did have a lot of problems with his Sleep vinyl though. String music with very deep bass causes non-fill on most records - visually you probably dont see a thing because the records are colored.

How is the vinyl re-press different from the original press?

I had no idea that there is a re-issue. I have the first press, bought when it was released in Europe.
posted a review of Gavin Harrison - Cheating The Polygraph. about 1 year ago
Unfortunately the vinyl edition of this one should of have been pulled - either the cutting head was damaged or the wrong master was submitted - the sound is distorted throughout. One of the few Optimal cuts that are entirely faulty. Cant believe they ... See full review

This vinyl is pretty brickwalled, hardly listen to the whole thing because of that.
posted a review of Demonaz - March Of The Norse. about 1 year ago
Great mastering on this, nice job from Nuclear Blast. Too bad this was the more widely pressed variant and it has the dullest cover of them all.
posted a review of Nile (2) - Those Whom The Gods Detest. about 1 year ago
This sounds pretty good for a Nuclear Blast vinyl. Too bad its only 3 sides, should of have been 4 sides and cut at 45RPM.

Can anyone explain the deal with the different album covers with this album? I have the recent EU press (has a van on the cover). The early US press had that group photo and seems like the recent US press now has another picture of a car similar to the ... See full review

This sounds incredible on vinyl, on par with the 50+ USD audiophile re-issues you can get in the audiophile boutique shops.
posted a comment on Animals As Leaders - The Madness Of Many. about 1 year ago
Yes, I now have this vinyl copy and ironically it is one of the better sounding metal records in my collection. Its unfortunate that the previous AAL records were so bad. So yeah, Madness of Many is very well done.

I dont have this re-issue, but the sides are clearly too long on this - should of have been 4 songs max on each side. I bet it has a lot of inner groove distortion.

And one more thing - that new copy of blue vinyl I bought in Europe is centered, the previous blue one I ordered from amazon.com plays off-center.

Gonna reply to my own question here. Bought the supposed EU vinyl last week here in Europe - its not an EU pressing, it is the exact same copy of the blue LP vinyl I ordered from amazon.com couple of months ago. The only difference is that it doesnt have ... See full review

I had multiple copies of the first press on vinyl but sold them because the 2010 and 2012 re-issue actually sound better (better mastering and less inner groove distortion).

I have a decent and calibrated setup (Stanton ST-150), and more than a decent collection. The first press of the self-titled was taken from the CD - distorted mess. Weightless first press sounds ok, but the inner groove tracks are distorted (a lof of ... See full review

How do these vinyl versions sound? All the past AAL releases have sounded very bad on vinyl due to bad mastering.
posted a comment on Various - La La Land - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack. about 1 year ago
What does this even mean? :) With vinyl in general - if it sounds bad at low volume, it will definitely sound 100 times worse at high volumes.

Vinyl is cut by Chris Bellman, sounds incredible - no comparison with the CD.
