PO - Brand New - Science Fiction

Recommended Posts

Dang, it's really bumming me out that the Red/Blue pressing is having so many sound issues. Mine will be here early next week, and I guess time will tell if it's a bad copy or not.  I care more about the sound than the color. Makes me wonder if they'll be holding off the release of the very limited one to ensure quality mastering.

Anyone still think there's a secret second album?  I thought this thread was for conspiracies, not pressing/shipping info...

If you're looking to peruse a Brand New thread without shipping updates or chatter of pressing info, VC is not the place you want to be.

I'd say SF and TDAG are almost a tie - TDAG has better ~songs~, but SF is the better ~album~.

Decided to do an A/B comparison of the record vs the mp3 download on my iPod. I have both running through my mixer, and would switch back and forth between the two with the cross fader. The mp3's highs are brighter than the record (the cymbals are rolled off), and the record overall has a very slight muffled sound compared to the mp3. By no means does the record sound bad (only listened to side A; no surface noise, no pops from what I heard), but if you prefer a brighter sound, the mp3 tracks will appeal more to you. Keep in mind my turntables are Technics 1200 MK2s (from some decade long ago) and I am using a Ortofon 2M Blue. You could probably get more out of the record with a better turntable and needle.
