  1. Horny and burnt out now. That's the lyric I still remember. I'm sure there's more.
  2. neato! fixed the link: https://www.bullmoose.com/p/29219253/margot-the-nuclear-so-sos-slingshot-to-heaven-limited-edition-500-deluxe-gatefold-vinyl
  3. I think the Music On Vinyl pressing is equally good. I have both. And yes, I put my WB pressings in a MFSL sleeve when I first got it. Sold my white copy cuz yuck.
  4. Better stated by you, yes I did not find myself coming back to HitM. I do think Counterfeit Sky and 'I can see houses' are wonderful, the Focus and Come Crashing are good too.
  5. Ha I can make it through the new one, the Heart is the Monster on the other hand..... Don't get me wrong, I like many of it's songs.
  6. I was completely underwhelmed by EP#3 but all together it's good. They had a Magnified's worth of ideas. They shouldn't marry themselves to the hour+ runtime. I'm pretty pleased with the album but have moved on to other music for now.
  7. I think some of the discs had defects in the pressing but the sound quality is good-to-great. I didn't have any of those issues, mine was the second round. My turntable is a ProJect Essential II Digital with the stock cartridge (Ortofon OM-5E). I just archive my stuff in 24-bit digital cuz you know... dynamic range matters and I don't like wearing down my records.
  8. Great job on mastering/mastering source. I've never even heard anything but the CD/HDCD and this pressing has given me a real appreciation for the album. Full disclosure I never really liked this one compared to Astronaut / Electra ... but now I do. Dynamic range is important.
  9. My 90s nostalgia is nearing 100% complete!!! Just need Fiona Apple's second album. I did have the single LP version of this, the sound quality suffered severely as the album is over 75 minutes long! I sold it after learning about a Zimbabwean 2LP pressing, which of course is beyond rare.
  10. Just got my copy in the indyasfuc diy cardboard sleeve, very nice. The vinyl is better sounding to my ears than the SRC press. Good job guys. @jonahmatrangadotco I like the USB too, are any of the songs available in native lossless/wav/FLAC? The mp3s are done well, but you know... every bit and byte counts.
  11. Digital isn't bad folks. Overbearing dynamic range compression on the other hand sucks the life out of the recording. The reason you probably love AAA is it cannot be dynamically compressed in the same way.
  12. haha me too. listening to the album on Tidal with their fancy normalization, good enough. that succcks. if you use Chrome you should be able to store your CC# and just enter the CCV. also i feel validated... I hate it too is totally my favorite Hum song:
  13. This is pretty ridiculous, so next week same time/same channel?
