  1. Just cranked Rated R and am currently cranking SFTD and I have no complaints. Sounds baller. I enjoyed R a lot more today than I remember enjoying it in the recent past. Part of me wants to say these might be slightly altered mixes, in addition to being new vinyl cuts, from what I'm used to hearing from any other format. And I only mean to imply that there are very minute variations from the other formats I've played these albums on but a few things felt a little different than I remembered. Anyone who's on the fence about getting, especially if you don't have any vinyl edition, I would just grab these if I were you. Who the fuck knows when they'll dry up. Don't kick yourself later. Looking forward to hearing the new press of Lullabies even more now.
  2. Usually the engineer doesn't get to strongarm the worldwide major record label to influence what the source mix is going to be for the cut. That's just not the power dynamic. I would love to believe that we don't live in a world where that would ever happen but it does happen. Here's to hoping its not the case with this title.
  3. Touche. I at least assumed it was going to be better than that. My point is it could either be stellar or merely "good enough" but at the time that I posted that, I did forget that particular detail. So yeah, I'm assuming it will at least be better than clipped to hell but to what degree, I'm still in the dark on. Working the late shift tonight so won't be able to listen for another few hours. Still, the fact that it comes from a major leads me to believe that there's a chance they may have only supplied a mere retail CD copy to cut from. I don't think that would be up to him and the majors have been known to do that.
  4. My standard black edition from bestbuy.com arrived today. I'm thoroughly satisfied with the packaging. The spine is closer to a classic dual gatefold thickness and the records themselves are not obnoxiously thick. Feels like a normal release and not some overbloated 10 lbs. behemoth of extraneous raw material and that pleases me. Now I just hope the cut is better than the UK original. That one sounds a little crispy/burnt/hot. I wonder if we'll ever know whether this got cut from CD or a stereo master closer to the production process.
  5. Please teach me your secret. Not sure what that experience cost but this cruise starts at roughly $1700 it looks like and that without pre or post cruise hotel accomodations and other travel expenses and specialty restaurants and alcohol.
  6. I can't imagine who of the C&C's fanbase is actually going to or can afford to go.
  7. I dig all that. That could be really cool if it is finally the repress. Could really suck if its cut from CD like the recent A-->B was.
  8. Can't listen right now. Is this definitely playing sound from CFUTF?
  9. I wouldn't call it planned well at all. I've been a huge fan for 20 years and have bought each new release on the day of release or sometimes night before at "midnight sales" and have always gotten my hands on it as soon as I went to the store. Any store. This time I tried to locate a copy of this CD in two different states on the same weekend and was met with Out Of Stock signs and empty shelves and store clerks apologizing that it was gone. That's not well planned. That's dogshit. It took me several weeks to locate a copy and that was while scouring this board fiendishly only to finally see a link come up at fye.com and pull the trigger only to have it go out of stock with 45 minutes of my purchase. I got my copy but after several weeks they couldn't put enough out to keep up with demand online? That's another example of horrible planning. Then they had a one day fire sale of more copies that were promised to be delivered to customers by like end of September and those people still don't have their copies. I know they want to sell these things and if they can sell some enormous percentage more than they manufactured then they fell short. Its a huge major label and a cult followed band. They knew how to do it. They fucked up their planning. And if it was actually their plan to have it go this way, they're assholes. Again, they should have pressed up the normal amount of a standard packaged CD or at least something without a video screen that could have been fancy looking still but at least in the normal CD price range. Then also have the video as a deluxe. This isn't hard. The logistics on releasing CD's has all been figured out long before this album was even recorded. There's an industry build around doing just that. This is either a fuck up or chicanery from assholes. I hate to rehash all that but I don't know how anyone could call that "planned out very well." I know for a fact that I'm not the only one who had these issues getting my hands on the CD. PS Where the fuck is the vinyl?
  10. My sentiments exactly. Why couldn't this have just been planned better before the official release date and have the multiple formats available all at once? They know how to release physical music. They've done it before and they had plenty of time to figure all this out. This could have been painless and simple for the fans but why do that.
