    Oh Sees- Smote Reverser- Aug 17

    How much did your Vinyl Flat cost? I see a couple versions. With quality control seemingly going out the window, I should probably just get one.

    Sorry, I should have taken some PTO from work so I could get home and listen to it ASAP. I will try not to annoy you in the future.

    Oh Sees- Smote Reverser- Aug 17

    Anyone have any quality issues? There's a thread on reddit with a lot of people saying they're having the same issues as were present with Orc; namely, a lot of popping and even skipping/needle bouncing at the beginning of each side of the record. I haven't listened to my copy yet, but I had this happen with *two* copies of Orc until I got one that had no defects.... kind of annoying.

    Extreme Metal Releases and Pre-orders

    Willowtip is still alive and kicking? Are they just a distro now? I haven't heard that name in forever. I have great memories of getting all of their early stuff so cheaply... Circle of Dead Children, Commit Suicide, Harakiri, etc.

    Official Newbury Comics Reissue Thread

    This might be Newbury's most flagrant cash grab/price inflated offering yet. Both of these are in stock at Castleface, for less money, AND in colored variations. wtf? Normally Newbury at least picks stuff that doesn't have colored variations readily available elsewhere.

    Virus Popups on Mobile Site

    Seems like the issue is known at this point, but I'll add that I've only had it happen on my Galaxy, never on my iPad.

    Virus Popups on Mobile Site

    Happens to me a lot and it's friggin annoying.

    Official Newbury Comics Reissue Thread

    Anyone listened to the Hot Rats reissue? The guitar seems strangely quiet compared to mp3s I've heard, but maybe the LP has always been like that?

    The Official 'Vinyl Me, Please' thread.

    I dislike most modern "indie rock" (which is either not indepedent or not rock) but this is a fantastic album. I don't get how a rock fan couldnt enjoy it at least a bit.
  10. Please not another thread about this album.
  11. The cover isnt even taking artistic chances that don't pay off. Its just... stupid and lazy. Cant wait to see the breathless haul posts on reddit with people proudly showing off their purchase. "Only Maynard is innovative and daring enough to deconstruct our perceptions of acceptable cover art!"

    King Tuff- The Other- April 13

    Different reaction over here. Psycho Star is decent, but even with all the recent rock music aping '70s stuff, this might be the *most* blatant '70s sounding song I've heard this year. Down to the video as well. And I don't like The Other at all. I think some of the lyrics are awkward and delivered clumsily, and King Tuff just isn't someone I'm gonna go to for serious reflections on life. I feel like he's not playing to this strengths here. I get he was sick of the "King Tuff" persona though, so I'm glad he's found something he's passionate about.
  13. I think I finally found my copy. Glad I waited. $18?!

    PO: Agents of Oblivion - S/T

    Cool, look forward to hearing your thoughts! If it's not off-centered like mine, I might grab one too. And I just want to support Dax as much as possible. Bumping this thread sent me on a big Dax kick, he's all I've been listening to for the last few days, lol You know, you might be right about the volume of the PTT master recording causing issues. I distinctly remember that my CD was always quieter than whatever else I had just listened to. I wouldn't be surprised if Rotten didn't put a lot of thought and care into those pressings, but yeah, maybe there were other issues too.

    PO: Agents of Oblivion - S/T

    I only have Agents and Deadboy.... but thanks to this post, I checked discogs and see that Blood or Love was repressed a few months ago and is available on his site?! I'm just gonna take the plunge. I'll let you know how it sounds. But yeah, Deadboy is probably my least favorite Dax album. I'm happy to have it on viny though, and it's grown on me over the years. Maybe with Dax releasing stuff on his site we'll finally get Say Goodnight to the World and If This Is Hell... on vinyl? And since I'm checking in on all things Dax, I just found this on reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/Daxriggs/comments/7ajjbq/after_ordering_agents_of_oblivion_on_vinyl_i_took/ holy shit I hope this is true!
