In my opinion, this pressing looks beautiful and sounds absolutely wonderful.

My copy has tons of static, surface noise, and sibilance right out of the sleeve. Really disappointing.

I'm happy the previous commenter got a good copy, but my copy was absolutely filthy right out of the sleeve, and has horrendous non-fill on side A. My second disc is pretty much flawless, but I'm really bummed about disc one. Still midway through my ... See full review

They don't include the CD copies with these anymore, it seems.

I think the pressing sounds really good, but the color is ugly as sin.

There's a really bad batch of these floating around. I had to return one to my record store because there was surface noise so prevalent throughout the whole record it made it unlistenable. Like the stylus was being dragged through dirt, but for the ... See full review

To my ears, this pressing has a lot of the low end that the more recent reissues seem to lack.

This thing sounds great. Awesome job on the remastering. Nice packaging as well!

My copy is great. Flat, good-sounding vinyl. Although, I feel like a performance of this nature and the way it was recorded doesn't lend itself super well to the format. Still cool to own though, even though the price point is absolutely absurd.

The reason for the bad quality on this record is the mastering itself. This album is atrociously mastered, and was super compressed from the get-go. I'd imagine it was recorded digitally, but barring a full-on remaster, this record will always sound ... See full review

This pressing is atrocious... such prevalent surface noise and distortion that it makes the album impossible to enjoy. When are the Capitol-era Radiohead albums going to get the high-quality reissues they deserve?
posted a comment on R.E.M. - Out Of Time. 11 months ago
It's just all too loud. The distortion on the first few guitar notes of Radio Song tipped me off that this would be a brickwalled mess.

Still available at boniver.org for list price. Don't pay flipper prices.

Nah, have a really nice setup and this album still sounds terrible. You got lucky with this one. My 22, A Million sounds great and most people have issues with that one.

This pressing is dead fucking silent. Not a single pop the entire way through. Sound quality is pretty great too.
posted a comment on Primus - Frizzle Fry. about 1 year ago
Very very bad. Sleeve is extremely flimsy, record was dished to the point where side two was unplayable. On top of all of that, sound quality is suspect and you have to literally crank it to 75% volume. Avoid.

The spine creases really easily. But the presentation of this is top-notch and the vinyl sounds great!

You're mistaken, that is for the single LP 200g cut. This one is $55.99 on Acoustic Sounds.

Mine sounds great. No issues here. Smokes my original pressing.
posted a review of The Killers - Day & Age. about 1 year ago
Purchased today, spinning now. The deadwax says "Mastered by Capitol", and it sounds like they had to have used the CD masters for this. The treble is cranked up, the cymbals sound compressed. It's almost shrill at a high volume. However, there is a ... See full review

I have this already. My copy sounds incredibly clean and crisp. The third LP came with a bit of a dish warp, but my weight took care of it pretty easily. A great set!

Awesome sounding record. I'm glad to finally own this on LP. Analog Spark continues to hit the Ben Folds pressings out of the park.

I think this pressing actually sounds really great. MOV rarely disappoints.

My copy has horrible surface noise throughout. Did I just get a dud copy or did you all clean this record right out of the sleeve?
posted a comment on Beck - Colors. about 1 year ago
Sounds and looks pretty damn good for a $20 record. Vinyl is flat, pristine and clean right out of the sleeve. The yellow is translucent, not opaque. Looks gorgeous.

I think this pressing sounds god-awful. Not dynamic at all, and extremely muddy.

This cut sounds really, really good to my ears. Packaging is cool too.

This version sounds huge. Bass and drums are punchy, as they should be. Also, it's very, very cheap on Amazon.
posted a comment on Ben Folds - Songs For Silverman. over 2 years ago
Mine sounds really, really good for the majority of the album. The only song that sounds dicey is "Gracie", which is the last one on side A. The IGD here is a bit distracting on my particular copy. Other than that, awesome pressing! The clear looks ... See full review

Watch out for the newest batch of these. Pressed by United, and they are really noisy and distorted.
posted a comment on Jimmy Eat World - Bleed American. over 2 years ago
Incredibly disappointing pressing of an otherwise great album. Flat, lifeless, and way way too quiet.
posted a comment on Jimmy Eat World - Futures. over 2 years ago
Mine definitely doesn't sound bad. Pretty punchy and open. This is much better than the Bleed American re-issue in the same series.

Mine sounds pretty good. Gave it a wet clean and all the shit from the plant came right off.

This sounds great! A tad noisy at parts, but overall for a colored 1LP for an album this long, it sounds pretty awesome.

Anyone have any thoughts on this pressing yet? I'm spinning it right now - sounds pretty good to my ears. Low end is a little bit muddy, but this is easily the best this album has ever sounded to me.

Bass is a little low on this for my taste. Drums sound great. Overall, not bad, but not great either.

Might be a dumb question, but are the vinyl copies in this box set different from the standalone release? I upgraded to this box to get the extra stuff from the original 2014 reissue, and this one has a matte finish while the other had gloss. This one ... See full review
