It sounds really good. I'm almost willing to overlook the slight dishwarp. The low end is absolutely fantastic on this.

You should report those stores to the RSD organizers as that's actually against the RSD code. Those stores should not be entitled to receiving RSD titles in the future.

There's a wide press of this coming soon, just be patient and don't feed the sharks!

First copy had a lot of sticky glue all over the record & the second copy was warped. It's a shame, such a great album but I think this release has too many quality issues.

Mine looks more Olive Green in normal light than the florescent green shown in the picture here.

Good value for money! Sounds rich and it's pressed on heavy weight vinyl. Can't go wrong at this price!

Awesome pressing and great music. Nice to see a strong sophomore album from this band. Hope they continue in this direction!

Simply Majestic! You get full value for your money seeing as this "EP" clocks in at about 37 minutes. The pressing is absolutely ace as well.

My copy ordered from Amazon was sealed and I have to say it's flawless. Flat and it sounds wonderfully rich - no issues whatsoever with non-fill. I was expecting a cheap pressing but the fact that it also came with a poly lined inner was a nice bonus.

Could you please check if there's a way to separate the 2019 repress from the 2018 press? If it's distinguishable I would like to try and pick it up!

A real shame that the track Silent Miles isn't included as I've fallen in love with that bonus track in particular. Is it by any chance a hidden track?

It's Out of Print now (or almost as they could have copies for replacements) on Vinyl Me Please. Hearing that they will not press more copies, therefore if you want this album I'd suggest a good time to pick it up is now.

I think this release sound great and I probably wouldn't own the Nymphs tracks on this format if they had not done a compilation. I think the packaging is a bit underwhelming for me. I was expecting more of a gatefol/trifold sleeve but instead you have ... See full review

No, it comes shrink wrapped but doesn't have the original anti static bag. Everything else is identical though.

Bought it so I can finally confirm that it is indeed the same mastering as the 2016 version. Very good pressing, I had no quality issues and the mastering from 2016 sounds very nice. The record is a nice deep shade of green which looks nice to me. No ... See full review

Happy to say it's a pretty good pressing overall. Absolutely flat and clean out of the box. Can't imagine the source is remastered but I would say it's worth picking up. Seems to me it's the first coloured pressing of the UK version of the album!
posted a comment on Various - We Out Here. 5 months ago
I couldn't be happier with this pressing, it sounds really nice and regardless of if you choose black or coloured vinyl, I think it's a must have if you are even a little bit curious about this scene.

Has someone compared the blue and clear? I have the clear and I thought it actually sounds very good.

Great sound on this pressing, considering a lot of stuff pressed during this period is of questionable quality. The songwriting and lyrics are just fantastic. Oberst strikes me as a modern day Dylan. The music is really timeless.

No unfortunately I think the issues with the pops & crackles are still there. I tried 3 copies and in the end kept the one with the least amount of popping - at least all were flat.

Shame? This version is amazing as well. It might have been cut on 2 separate occasions but I doubt they, Kevin Gray especially, would try to make an inferior cut. I haven't heard the MM version but I'm sure the differences are subtle, but even then, as ... See full review

Revisiting this album a year after its release. It was one of my favourites of 2017, probably second only to Kendrick Lamar - Damn. I see similarities between the two as well, And it's interesting to see that this is labeled as Rock because I find the ... See full review

Highly recommended, one of my favourites in this recent wave of modern "late night" jazz. It's worth noting it was apparently recorded in one take, and direct to tape. It sounds excellent on this format.

The bass sounds so good on this release. I was skeptical with the kickstarter release but it sounds like they spent some time mastering this for the format. Worth the $40 it cost!

it has been updated, the first edition clearly has "Limited First Edition" on the booklet!

Try cleaning it. I gave mine a clean before playing it and i think it sounds great. Especially the synth bass sounds really fat and nice on this.

This pressing is ace. I haven't heard the black or silver pressings but judging by those reviews this clear one, at least my copy, sounds flawless.

I don't see the differences either. Should be merged into one release but someone is stubbornly keeps veto-ing the merge. The only real difference is the actual runout ~ the other release seems to have a ∆ or ∇ thrown in there. It's clearly the same ... See full review

Mine sounded very good with no skips. Very pleased with this overall. Just wished they had a gatefold so that both LPs don't have to sit in the same slot.

Could someone comment on the sound quality vs the original pressing or the blue version? It looks like the EU version of the reissue is getting a lot of negative reviews regarding quality.

Could anyone comment on the differences between this one at the US version? Most importantly does it sound good?

there's a coloured EU version that still isn't sold out. It's also limited to 300. Like markpotato's stupid and makes no sense.

So glad I managed to get this copy after reading the horror stories on the regular black pressing page. It sounds fantastic! I will agree with Killahwhale (review below me), about the "wobbly" guitar. The flanger/reverb effect on the guitar does sound ... See full review

"hold me for the pops and clicks". The actual lyrics on Calgary and the pressing that lives up to it. If you manage to get the record clean enough and sit through the few pops along the way it's a great record. Beautiful.

Very pleased about this one. Unfortunately I could never find a good quality original mono at a reasonable price so I've finally sprung for this pressing. At about $11 bucks on amazon it's 100% worth the money.
