  1. Wonderful. It sounds so crisp and full. My original pressing of Joshua Tree doesn't actually sound bad, but you can definitely hear a difference in the reissue. My only complaint is that I think splitting it across two discs kinda fucks with the album's pacing a bit. I prefer the album with a Side A/B tracklisting rather than A/B/C/D. But I mean, quality wise, yeah you cant complain. It comes with a really nice thick ass booklet with interviews and shit in it too. Totally worth it to grab it. And if you can AFFORD it, the ultra-deluxe vinyl set with the Live At Maddison Square Garden 4xLP, get that one, because that concert is truly one of the best mixed live releases I've ever heard. Remarkable stuff. Also, if anyone is wondering, I gave Zooropa a spin, and its solid as hell. Much louder and less muddy as the original pressing.
  2. Haven't listened to Zooropa yet, but yeah Achtung sounds fucking fantastic. Leaps and bounds above my original pressing.

    U2 - Songs of Experience

    IT'S ACTUALLY HAPPENING!!!!!!! https://pitchfork.com/news/adam-scott-and-scott-aukerman-launch-new-rem-podcast/?mbid=homepage-more-latest-and-video
  4. I got the Blade Runner soundtrack delivered today and they literally just slid the record into a standard record mailer without sealing it, then tossed it into an extremely oversized box that my coffee table could easily fit inside of, threw in one small sheet of tissue paper and then called it a day.

    [PO SOON] Kendrick Lamar - DAMN.

    Nah they're all there. Edge is on keys, Adam's playing the bass-line, and Larry is playing the drums that are being sampled.

    The Mondo Records Thread - Show Posts Anyway?

    Not sure if anyone has seen or is aware, but I put my collection of Birth.Movies.Death issues (every issue up until the Pixar issue) up on eBay, if anyone wants to get in on it. Also includes the Batman v Superman Mondo Flexidisc. http://www.ebay.com/itm/282358964825?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1558.l2649

    Radiohead - A Moon Shaped Pool

    So the USPS has apparently lost my copy of the deluxe edition. They marked it as delivered, but didn't actually deliver it, and now days later, neither the USPS or Radiohead's website will help me with this. USPS is basically saying "it was delivered, if its not there it's not our responsibility" and Radiohead's site are basically acting like I'm making this up, despite the fact that we were home when it was supposedly "delivered". So I don't have my deluxe edition, and am currently just out of the money I spent on it because USPS doesn't want to own up to losing my package, and Radiohead's site for whatever reason who just send me a replacement or even offer a refund. This is absolutely infuriating.
  8. Damn, that's a bummer. I've had the OG pressing of that album since I bought it on tour 10 years ago. Personally I've been holding out hope that the repress would be of the WB Records version and not the Teleprompt version. But at least I'll stop getting hounded on Discogs from people trying to convince me to sell it to them.

    PO Soon: TWIN PEAKS

    So a buddy of mine got his copy in the mail yesterday, but Mondo sent him an empty mailer instead. Sealed, with nothing inside of it. When he contacted them about it they said they'd of course send him a replacement.... in October. Because apparently they ran out already. So all of us still waiting for our shipping notifications, we apparently won't see that until this new Pre-Order batch gets sent out in October. Shitty.

    Radiohead - A Moon Shaped Pool

    My local shop got 50 copies of the White. Just picked one up, and rather than it being solid white, it's actually got a slight black marble to it. Fits the artwork even more.
  11. My copy skips on both Fade and Highlights, and same as already said, Facts is on twice, instead of Fade. But ultimately I'm still happy to have it. On the fence though as to whether I'd buy a fixed version or not. On one hand, Fade is one of my favorite tracks on the LP so I'm bummed it's not on there, but then on the other hand, I just can't justify spending another thirty dollars just for one track.
  12. What, no it hasn't? I've had my copy from Amazon for a week now.
  13. Nope, these are all pre-ordered copies from the online ticket sales so they're already spoken for. But here's a shot of it. They're "limited" to 2500 apparently. You can also see how the top has been chopped off as well.
  14. We got all of our copies of the BvS Birth Movies Death in at the Alamo I work at, and we opened a box. Every single issue in the box had the 7" inside of it, but don't expect to be able to properly listen to it. They inserted them at the top of the issue, instead of in the middle, so when the pages were being trimmed down, every 7" (at least in the box we opened) had literally part of the actual song chopped off. Definitely more of a gimmick than anything else. But yeah.
