Story of the year - page avenue?

Recommended Posts

I finally gave this a spin. I'm going to have the unpopular opinion, but I think it sounds pretty good. Yes, like others have said, it is quiet... so turn it up. I did an A/B comparison against the 320kbps mp3 off my ipod, and this doesn't sound as compressed. Doesn't sound flat in my opinion either. Should this sound better than an mp3? Of course. However, I ran the same test with Brand New's Science Fiction, and I can't say the same. I'd say the mp3 sounded better, if only by the slightest of margins. So take this information as you will.

I heard back from SRC today and you have to pay to ship it back, but they will issue a refund or store credit. You will be out the money it cost to get it shipped to you and the cost of shipping it back. Stinks, but I’m still planning on sending it back. I’ve learned my lesson with SRC. I’ll definitely think twice before ordering something from them next time. 

I'll probably put it up on ebay for like $36 shipped if that's the case. Doesn't even look like anyone is buying it from there though. I definitely don't want it. Sucks because I was really anticipating this release for a while. Boycott src releases.

Just wanted to also hop on here & say that my red pressing sounds like crap.  Rather than "mastered for vinyl", it sounds like they just pressed the unmastered stereo bounce.  The volume is super low, there are virtually no low mids and the snare is WAY louder than everything else.  I'll hold onto mine just because there isn't a better pressing that exists but I'm definitely going to let SRC know that they fucked this up.  Pretty annoyed.
