  1. Rosetta - Terra Sola 1. Terra Sola 11:25 2. 57844 06:06 3. Where Is Hope? 04:48 Digital only right now, vinyl and CD coming later https://theanaesthete.bandcamp.com/album/terra-sola Pay-what-you-want
  2. Yo, those complaining about white-on-white.... did you not read the details when you pre-ordered?? This is exactly what I expected from the description, they had pictures of the book, you could see that it was nearly unreadable.
  3. The album is great, but it is definitely a departure from Pain is Beauty / Abyss / Hiss Spun, really a throwback to her work before those albums. Prior to Pain is Beauty she was on my radar but never really grabbed me. Since becoming a fan I've come around to love her earlier work as well, but it's an entirely different vibe. I'm sure it'll be a grower for me, but yeah I wasn't excited by anything out of the box.
  4. So a bunch of people, including myself, have been asking for sources and links to articles he discussing, and more information in general. No response. I've done a little digging myself, while the levels he's talking about recording are certainly not good, as far as I can tell it's not out of range of lots of other 'not good' pollution levels we experience on a day-to-day basis. So.... whatever? I'm very happy with my decision to slim down my collection and purchase habits, but I believe I will keep a core collection going.
  5. https://www.discogs.com/Norma-Jean-The-Almighty-Norma-Jean-Limited-Edition-Vinyl-Boxset/master/367034 It's been done and any of that era of T&N release cost a stupid amount to licence for repressing.
  6. I wish it was anywhere within a days drive, I'd totally go
  7. There is not, they discussed this and the audio fidelity issues in the facebook comments. Basically the audio is already distorted as fuck so distorting it a little more only lends to the end result in a positive way.
  8. Yeah that's the main part I'm looking for more information on. I mean, it's certainly bad, but I can't imagine that you wouldn't get similar readings sitting in the drive-thru. I'm definitely the just rub some dirt in it type on one hand, but on the other I'm not keen on actively exposing myself or my family to carcinogens either. Regardless, I put around 1/3 of my collection up on Discogs last night 🤷‍♂️
  9. Not so much, he quotes studies and and is very upfront about the reality of the situation and that he's no scientist. Overall I found it a pretty well done video, it's worth a watch even if you don't agree with everything in it (I think, at least). Also, it's not just some dude. He has a long career in music/mastering, has his own albums pressed on vinyl (in the past), etc. Benn from The Flashbulb and a million other projects. Definitely not expecting anyone here to indulge my curiosity/concerns, just looking for some opinions on the points raised where people are so inclined to participate.
  10. While I realize this is a sarcastic response (which I welcome), do you have anything to refute what buddy is claiming? I did a little digging myself and could find much on either side of the argument.
  11. This is a really good list. I'm already doing #1 and #2, though if I'm realistic about #2 I'll be cutting my collection in half pretty quick here. If I keep buying records #3 will definitely be part of it, I may end up paying more on the odd record since I didn't pre-order it but I know I'll save way more in the end by buying less. #4, I'll definitely be selling nearly all of that. #5 is unfortunately just unrealistic for my situation. I do use digital with bluetooth for around the house. For me the hobby part IS the records. I listen to and enjoy music without records quite a bit. That's definitely something I've considered doing going forward. See, in the last year I've probably sold around the same number and I don't regret it at all. I even have several records where I had a limited version and I sold them with the idea that I could buy back basic black for a fraction of the price AND pocket a bunch of money in the process. I've never felt inclined to rebuy those albums. I do like the idea of my son getting into records on one hand, but on the other hand there is the health issues. Something that no one has really spoken to here. Sorry if I'm ruining anyone's day with this video: (fast forward to https://youtu.be/aZ2czFuIYmQ?t=437 if you just want to watch the bit about the health issues) This is stuff I've been aware of to some degree in the past, but this video really brings the issue home (and lots of other issues). I'm definitely curious what you guys think about this particular point.
