I will have to agree with you. Sadly, my copy has the same issues: clicks and pops, and this quite annoying noise you mention in your review. I will keep anyway since it was a present but I am a bit let down with this reissue to say the least. Of course, ... See full review

Thank you for pointing this out; I cannot see the signature you mention, though. Can you confirm this, please?
posted a review of Nico (3) - The Marble Index. 2 months ago
I must say that I agree with most reviewers here: noisy copy. I wouldn’t say that this is a poor pressing but there is, indeed, too much annoying noise: clicks and pops in most of the tracks. Disappointed, of course, bearing in mind that the sticker ... See full review
posted a review of Apenino - Viravolta. 2 months ago
Great songs: indietronics with political lyrics (in Spanish). Very nice programming and lovely vocals: Mónica Vacas (Mus) and Eva (Linda Guilala) accompany very suitably. I love the mini album cover and the format as well (10”). Sadly, at least my own ... See full review

Interesting. So, did you come to any conclusions? What’s your view on this mono version? Would you recommend it?
posted a comment on This Mortal Coil - Song To The Siren. 2 months ago
Couldn’t agree more! TMC’s Song To The Siren is such a beautiful version - perhaps my favourite song ever. However, like you, I wish the B-side had been another tune - even an instrumental version would have been more suitable.

Thank you. Have you compared the CD sound quality with the vinyl pressing or any other source? Maybe the master tapes’ quality isn’t the best either?

I’m afraid this copy is not as good as the others (from what one may read in the previous reviews): the sound is pretty good but it has this annoying repetitive surface noise as if the stylus were dirty (but it is not). Disappointed because the rest ... See full review

Does anyone know if this 12” rum at 45rpm or 33rpm? Thanks for taking your time to reply.
posted a comment on Spectrum (4) - Forever Alien. 3 months ago
I’m curious too. Had no idea Spectrum albums had been reissued. Would like to read comments on both the pressing and the artwork.

Why did he do that?! Does this reissue/remastered version really sound bad?
posted a comment on FKA Twigs - EP2. 5 months ago
I hope so too. I have no complaints whatsoever. Good luck!

I only wish a few more copies of the black vinyl would come back in stock at Boomkat. I missed out on this beauty.
posted a comment on This Mortal Coil - This Mortal Coil. 8 months ago
Any idea if they will be reissuing this box set or the CDs separately one day? It's a shame how such beautiful music and items are not available any more unless one pays the whim of a third party who has nothing to do with it.

Same here. Mine is exactly the one you describe. I was wondering if there had possibly been a different pressing but there seems to be only this one.
posted a comment on The Residents - Meet The Residents. 8 months ago
I am wondering if this one is this mono or stereo...
posted a review of David Bowie - Pin Ups. 9 months ago
Great quality cassette. The sound here is just superb. Arguably, one of the best (if not the best) sounding cassettes I own. Artwork printed on heavy cardboard too.

Thanks a lot for commenting on this! I guess I'll get a copy then.

Could anybody confirm if this reissue comes with the Energie-Peak ijs' (detail) by Jan Van Munster, 1981 printed on the inner sleeve, please? Thanks in advance.
posted a comment on The Velvet Underground - Collected. 9 months ago
Thanks for your comment. It all seems perfect. I wish they had included Sunday Morning and After Hours.

The obvious question is: how does this sound? Anybody got this reissue so as to comment, please? Thanks.
posted a review of The Velvet Underground & Nico (3) - The Velvet Underground & Nico. 9 months ago
Just got a copy of this. Sounds very quiet and loud enough. It comes with the original artwork too. Good job on this one!
posted a comment on My Bloody Valentine - mbv. 9 months ago
We see eye to eye here. An Extended Play would have been a better choice, IMHO. Some tracks just feel like empty fillers. I am afraid any other MBV EP or LP beats this one by far - even Kevin Shields songs for the Lost In Translation SDTK sound a lot ... See full review
posted a comment on FKA Twigs - EP2. 9 months ago
In case anyone's wondering, this 12" sounds really good. This EP runs at 33rpm but the sound is clear and powerful too. Needless to say, the four songs are awesome.

Is this the one that says made in the Czech Republic?

Don't know about other copies, but my blue one unfortunately sounds really poor. Disappointed.
posted a review of Sonic Youth - Goo. 10 months ago
I was doubtful about buying this as one reads so many reviews of poor-quality pressing reissues, but this one sounds just awesome.

What sort of alterations have you made? Does it work now?
posted a comment on Björk - Vespertine. about 1 year ago
How about the pressing and sound quality? Mine is a little bit too noisy, I mean, the vinyl crackle.

Any idea if it has been remastered from the original tapes?

I do. It sounds great IMHO; and the 14 prints that come inside are gorgeous!

Or yours might be this version, which is similar but not texturised: https://www.discogs.com/Joy-Division-Unknown-Pleasures/release/8236460
