    I'm already experincing anxiety over this kozelek release. If anyone can attempt to get an extra copy I'll compensate you in addition to what it costs.

    That's a lot of words for a Brand New thread. Can you summarize with a couple cat gifs and a picture of Shaq?

    hey......":man" your reading comprehension is terrible. I wasn't giving an opinion of the record I was asking if anyone who owns a pressing what the sound quality is like and that's all. As far as complaining I think its totally fair to be upset about the high prices we pay for records for some of them to come out sounding like shit due to bad mastering or coming from a shitty source. Also as far as my "elitist attitude" bumming the vibe im pretty sure this whole thread is bumming everyone's vibe how many pages and how much of it has to do with the actual record. Like a couple sentences worth of info?
     
    Sorry if I was trying to add a little info and discussion into this "discussion group" man.
     
    Im not trying to pick a fight with anyone I was just trying to have a conversation where we could maybe get some useful information. But it seems clear since ive been here the past couple years is that nobody really cares about how good or bad the pressing sounds on a modern record. They care about what color the record comes on, how many variants, and how they can get the variant with the lowest amount of pressings. Either that or how can I get every color the record was pressed on. Which i understand collectors. Everyone has their own copies. Hell even I seek out some varients for the look of them but what it really comes down to is does this record sound good or did I just waste money on a vinyl that was pressed up without any care given to the sound quality of it.
     
    Shits upsetting. 
     
    I just hope triple crown at least has the mind to re-cut this record because ive heard from some sources that the original press doesnt sound all that great and for the prices they go for.....it just seems a little crazy.

    Eliminator Jr. reacted to rabbitvinyl in PO : Modest Mouse - Strangers to Ourselves   
    Let me start by saying that I actually really liked We Were Dead and Good News, but my favourite Modest Mouse "album" is probably Building Nothing Out of Something. I appreciate the range that they showed throughout all of their releases and while some songs on their newest records fell flat, there were still many great songs on WWDBTSES and GNFPWLBN.

    Anyway, fuck me! After 8 years of waiting, this was a huge disappointment. Here's why:

    - Pistol is definitely the worst song on the album. Don't try and tell me that "it's experimental" and "different and you don't get it" because fuck that, it's just not good. How does a song like that make it onto an album that's been in the making for 8 years? Ridiculous.
    - Lampshades on Fire is just boring. Sounds like it should've been a B-side for the We Were Dead... era. 
    - God Is An Indian is pointless. Which is a let down because it's got the best title on the album and had the potential to be another Cowboy Dan-esque epic. 
    - Wicked Campaign is fun but...is it really a Modest Mouse song? Sounds more like a Killers cover band. Where did the synth come from? And why is James Mercer wailing in the background? 

    Also, why are they still rehashing old ideas and riffs (Lampshades, Tortoise, etc.)? And why are there so many songs on this album that they've been playing live for years? It's been EIGHT YEARS. You'd think Isaac and co. would have come up with more new material. There are 15 tracks on this album but only about 10 are actually new. 

    Highlights: 
    - Strangers to Ourselves. A nice introduction. Violins were surprising but they fit very well.
    - Ansel. Fuck yeah, island riddims! 
    - The Ground Walks. Some good ol' dancing tunes. 
    - Coyotes. Great buildup, nice guitar work and pretty harmonies. Lyrics are nothing special but Isaac's writing has always been most poignant when he's criticizing the human race - and that holds true here. 
    - The Best Room. The outro is my favourite part of the entire album. "Don't you know it's hard feeling tired all the time" Fuck yeah, it is. Where was this emotion during the other 14 tracks? 
    - the artwork is phenomenal

    At my shop we give out lists with five blank spaces sorted by priority for costumers to fill out as soon as the official list is up. The day before RSD we do an all-nighter to make sure every person gets at least on title from his/her list that we store with a name tag behind the counter. That way we get a pretty good outlook on what to order and can make sure that noone leaves empty handed and disappointed.

    Kanye West might have killed the argument though. Is he supposed to be an authority on superior hifi? I thought he was just an authority on shitty music.
