    I'm cautiously optimistic about the Tool reissues. From the sounds of things they aren't well underway, and Adam Jones has been taking thoughts from lots of people at SHTV including myself and seems to be really noting the information/recommendations. Lots of recommendations for 5.1 which would be aces, but he's a vinyl fan and he's heard a lot of feedback on how to do vinyl properly so hopefully they'll be involved and ensure the remasters are treated with care and not just "180g audiophile whoo hooo yay" marketing BS.
     
    He has liked a lot of the posts supplying insightful information...I recommended using a mastering house that can cut and master in an all analogue chain and suggested: i) Bernie Grundman Mastering (either Bernie or Chris Bellman would be fine) ii) AcousTech / Cohearent Audio (Kevin Gray or Steve Hoffman with Kevin Gray) and iii) Sterling Sound (Ryan K. Smith who took over from George Marino and now masters in George's old room, Ryan was his protege)

    I would easily buy both AAA 2LP vinyl release for stereo and Blu-ray for 5.1 of any of the Tool albums...cost is no barrier when it comes to these works of art.

    One good thing about the inner labels on the records, we can see that Dirt was recorded to 24-track 30ips analogue tape. Hopefully some day Alice In Chains' masterpiece (IMO) will get the proper 2LP AAA treatment it deserves, c'mon Analog Spark!

    dobyblue got a reaction from tvham in PO: The Cranberries - Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We? (an all analogue cut)   
    Analog Spark continue to show some appreciation for 90s albums with their announcing of The Cranberries' "Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We?" - they've licensed the original analogue stereo master and Sean Magee at Abbey Road is doing the cutting. Who is Sean Magee? He is one half of the duo that did all the work on the all analogue "The Beatles in Mono" box set.

    Based on how great Blind Melon's Soup sounds, I'm very excited to see another 90s album recorded to analogue tape getting the AAA treatment.

    Acoustic Sounds sells a lot of the albums pressed in Kansas at Quality. 
     
    I have the H. Hancock Headhunters pressing by Quality and it's very good. I think they are geared more towards audiophiles, so they press a lot of jazz, classic rock, etc on 180 to 200g often at 45rpm. 
     
    I didn't realize Wax Merge was part of Gotta Groove. I follow those two ladies and their hand pours on Facebook.

    Good points. I may wait for reports on the quality of the RTS repress before deciding whether to go with that or the OP.   As stated, the AAEA 45 rpm repress is one of the best sounding albums I have, so I can't imagine the new version being an improvement.

    Singles as a movie doesn't hold up particularly well other than the anticipation of the funny bits with the Pearl Jam guys and the Alice in Chains live scene...but boy Say Anything holds up really well and is still as funny and moving as it was back when I first saw it around 1990 as a 16 year old and the Blu-ray is terrific, great picture quality and nice clarity on the 5.1 mix. Great soundtrack on that one too, Chili Peppers, Mother Love Bone, Joe Satriani, Peter Gabriel...

    It's no lie. I listened to side C on the Capitol 10" first, then put on the new 12" UK pressing. 20 seconds into Optimistic it was easily clear which was superior. The 12" UK pressing is so much better than my Capitol 10". Not even close. 
     
    I ordered it based on early reviews and deadwax info on Thursday morning from Amazon UK with the cheapest international shipping. It arrived today. I live on the East Coast, but man that was fast!
     
    i also order Amnesiac, but I'm guessing that is delayed.

    Authorized by TR; all you need to do is load each file in Audacity, CTRL+A to select all and then choose TRACKS > MIX AND RENDER.

    I can't recall if you need to amplify by minus 10dB or not first but you'll know if you mix and render and everything goes red like an Oasis waveform clipping to shite!

    If you aren't too familiar with the process, let me know and I'll throw In This Twilight into a Dropbox. If TR has authorized it, I can't see it being an issue with anyone.

    The multitracks (choose full length) are located here - http://www.ninremixes.com/multitracks.php

    You can also snag The Slip from here and the NIN/JA tour sampler and get a nice dynamic mix of Chip Away from Jane's Addiction. Most of the other multis are not the original studio multis but rather Rock Band stems and the like. Each one is noted though so if there are one or two others they'll be easy to find.
     
    Oh yeah, "Suck" (Pigface version) is there also as well as The Hand That Feeds and Only.

    As you are familiar with DR stuff, check out the difference between THTF from Halo 18 (single)  vs. multitracks rendered to stereo:
     
    DR Peak RMS Duration Track -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- DR5 -1.04 dB -7.54 dB 3:39 01-The Hand That Feeds DR14      -0.43 dB   -17.66 dB      3:38 01-The Hand That Feeds (from Multitracks)
