    I love how Mike Park keeps his records' prices so low, especially while the other variants in the same pressing cost 5 dollars more. Big Big up.

    Well, I upgraded my table last year, and that alone costs $2K.
    And I just played the MOV gold and the VMP gold pressing, back to back, Record 1 only. 
    And they sound basically identical. I mean, I could lie and say the "artist approved" Clouds Hill pressing is more dynamic, or clearer, but honestly.... In a blind test I couldn't tell these apart. They're both cut extremely loud and not much more dynamic than the original CD. Both of them even have surface noise in the same spots. (Beginnings of each side during the quiet parts.)
    I mean, this is par for the course for Cedric & Omar, but it's still hilarious they pitched a fit over the MOV reissue, cancelled the FtM MOV release, waited 7 (??) years to do their "official" reissues, and.... They're basically the same. I guess the "back cover" is now the "front cover." GREAT.
    I still have the box set sealed, definitely selling that now once prices start going up in a few years.

    Cyr exceeded my expectations. I was expecting it to be their worst album, but I think it's their third worst.

    Spinning this just now and happy to report it sounds pretty good!
    I haven’t listened to this album for years but when GTA started I immediately had the alternative lyrics in my head.

    We spell it the proper way, the English way, “colour.”
    The French way is “couleur” and that is just gibberish.

    I never really thought about this before but do Canadians spell "colour" properly or do they spell it American?

    Statistically speaking, if "prog[ressive]" is located within any 1 of the first 3 genre descriptors that come to mind for a band, there's an 87% chance the general fanbase will be insufferable.

    It is a minor detail, but when you're used to getting a crescendo right before cicatriz, it's off putting to get a diminuendo instead. It really ruins the flow for me, and there was absolutely no necessity for that fade. I guess it feels too much to me like someone fucking with something that wasn't theirs to fuck with.  Like, all other albums are fine, but hey, let's add fades to THIS album. Doesn't make sense to me, to make the remasters sound so good, and then pull this shit. 
    Rant over.

    One of the first review videos, the n00b was spouting off about crematorium and not even showing the vinyl. 🤷 The world's a strange place.

    The sleeve for Mr. Muggs in my box was pretty trashed. I don’t know how that happened but can only assume someone fucking jammed it in and bent it. I’m going to see if I can get a replacement sleeve. I also have a small scuff on the de-loused jacket which I’m not too fussed about but if they have a replacement then I’ll take it.
    Overall the box set is decent and the 4 albums I’ve listened to so far sound great. My only (minor) criticism (apart from the vinyl weight issue) is the shitty paper sleeves they used. It takes away from the overall quality of the box.

    In my experience with other box sets, the mere pulling out and replacing of albums from the set creates shiny scuff wear in the direction of the pull on the front and back faces of the jackets regardless of the coating (matte, gloss, high gloss, etc.). Its usually only visible under certain angles of light. Might be wise to bag each album inside the box. Shouldn't add too much more thickness to contend with the inner capacity of the box enclosure.
