  1. PO: Rhye-Blood (2/2)

    Mine came in separate mailers, and they had different shipping dates. Blood is sounding good. Summer Days was hella dished.
  2. PO: Rhye-Blood (2/2)

    Got my notification yesterday, and somehow it is already out for delivery ...
  3. PO: Rhye-Blood (2/2)

    Anyone receive records or shipping notifications?
  4. Was hoping that bass guitar panned left like it is in New White Extremity wouldn’t be an album wide mix choice, but after listening to Shira, it seems it is. Killer song though, damn.
  5. PO Now: The Used - The Canyon 10/27

    They sent out album downloads to ticket holders. Nice sales bump tactic there. Why are there 17 full length tracks?! Highly unnecessary.
  6. Finally got this in hand. Previous poster was right in that it is slightly quieter than most, I turned my master volume up about a notch higher than usual. But, in this case it's a great thing. It's clear there isn't a whole lot of dynamic compression, and no crazy gain limiting. The drums are very punchy, surprisingly so at times. Wide sound stage. Thick in all the right places. 'It's been a lot of fun rebuilding this record at Abbey Road from the unlabelled original tapes. Frank Arkright has done a wonderful job. We hope you can hear the new found air, space and definition in this new version. Not to mention the BALLS.' - Nailed it. Especially for how affordable this was, it's a very satisfying purchase. I hope we see this done to subsequent albums, of which I still don't have any on vinyl.

    Finally, a 'true' vinyl record.
  8. 2xLP, 45rpm, single jacket. At $30, it's too damn expensive. But, it does sound quite good.
  9. 816715020505 is on the sticker on the shrink of my purple/purple splatter copy, different code on the jacket.
  10. It's certainly something in the cutting process, but I have many records pressed there that sound great, and certainly no worse than their digital counterpart. I haven't found sound quality to be a regular issue with GZ. I'm usually quite pleased. But it sounds like there was even more gain reduction applied and too much of a high frequency roll off on this one.
  11. Well the experience may be subjective, but it's definitely not because of the color.
  12. It's actually not what I planned on. The UPC came up as Clear with Purple Splatter when I searched for it.
  13. Something about this sounds quite different on vinyl, it's much more underwhelming. The digital version, I felt the guitars were quite loud and panned hard so they really popped out, especially whoever is in the right channel. This sounds more more veiled. I really have no complaints about the music, and I enjoy the album. But, I think I'll sell my vinyl copy. It's Half Purple/Half Purple splatter if anyone is interested.
