  1. So, who else thinks that Luciferian Towers is their best post-reunion album by, yeah, quite a bit? I feel they finally succeeded in crafting a well-rounded piece that is not just two longtracks and two drones while the latter don't actually add a thing next to 'time to breath' after/before the actual tracks. I'm also getting all sorts of warm and fuzzy feelings listening to this. The build-up of side a has me thinking Yanqui UXO which, as some people here might know, gets me extra-excited. Side b however has a wonderful, intricate and sorrowful post-war spaghetti western-vibe. It just breathes F#a#. The climax of Bosses Hang is pure nowadays-GYBE and I think it is their best one yet, post-reunion, that is. So, overall, I'm happy. Was expecting another good, but ultimately compatible album, but they delivered their best collection since Yanqui and what is quite certainly my favorite post-rock release of the year.
  2. PO: Wolves in the Throne Room-Thrice Woven 9/22

    I'm in EU and this variant is distributed as 'indie-exclusive' over here. Bought at my local. Also no indication whatsoever on the sticker concerning variants. I was expecting the standard black, so this was a nice surprise! Don't forget to switch to 45rpm ;-) I did, of course..

    Got my copy today. Clear with all sorts of junk splashed over it. Looks really cool in person. Also, after one thorough listen, album is shaping up to be great.
  4. Favourite High-Quality Re-Releases?

    You might find some good recommendations sifting through the query in the link below: http://forums.stevehoffman.tv/search/43485701/?q=Best+reissues&o=relevance&c[title_only]=1 People over there are often concerned with pressing quality and A-Bs of reissues vs. originals. There's also a lot of smartassing and butthurt going on, but that's the internet.
  5. PO: The National - Sleep Well Beast

    Blue copy showed up today, happy to see it's translucent. As always with me and The National this album will need a lot of rotation to start and slowly sink in. But they always do.

    Just wait until release day and buy one of the 10.000 or so copies the indie exclusive will end up encompassing at your local store.
  7. I'll back Dismemberment Plan, Drive Like Jehu and Built To Spill and throw in some Fugazi. Check out the following: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cMLiFpecgVg https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=57muiovrSMk https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4eEb0SC6R0M https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VzCwXbakHQ0

    I was not aware of that. Were you able to remove them with a blow dryer or something?
  9. PO - Brand New - Science Fiction

    No non-fill on "Luca". I know it has been reported as a widespread issue, but I failed to detect anything resembling a non-fill issue on either copy.
  10. PO - Brand New - Science Fiction

    Have a clear, my gf has it on black. We listened to both multiple times and none have any issues whatsoever. How many MOV pressings do you own? I'm not saying they're the best thing ever, but I have around 30ish releases of theirs and none had any problems whatsoever. Also the sticker is not on the cover, it's on the resealable outer sleeve.
  11. PO - Brand New - Science Fiction

    Yup. 8.3 + BNM
  12. PO Now: Julien Baker - Turn Out the Lights

    It's not a well kept secret that splatter/haze/swirl and whatnot variants tend to have more playback problems than black or clear/translucent colored variants, but that fact doesn't necessarily render any of the 'clickbait'-variants redundant. I prefer nice playback, others prefer nice looks. It's fine. Do you also spend thousands of dollars on hi-fi gear and then stream MP3s from your phone to a Bluetooth speaker?
  13. PO Now: Julien Baker - Turn Out the Lights

    Don't drag yourself down, but rather cherish the fact that you get to choose between the variants that are actually enjoyable, sound wise. Not living in the US, I do it all the time
