  1. My 90s nostalgia is nearing 100% complete!!! Just need Fiona Apple's second album.

    Far - Water & Solutions: What Happened

    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.

    Hum - Downward is Heavenward Reissue

    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.

    Hum - Downward is Heavenward Reissue

    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:

    Far - Water & Solutions: What Happened

    Seconded, just got out my SRC copy. Woefully underwhelming copy, probably did the best with what was available. Unfortunately if you don't have an unmastered copy or a protools file there's not a lot that can be done to restore dynamic range/detail....is what I have noticed in reading about the subject of mastering for vinyl.

    Pinback - Blue Screen Life reissue

    I've been stuck on Summer in Abaddon for years, have the contemporary LP only. Never really got into any of the other Pinback records but... Rob Crow's My Room is a Mess is an absolute gem. Surprised that hasn't got the LP treatment, it's a short record would easily fit on a single LP.

    Hum - Downward is Heavenward Reissue

    Taco Bell is tight! So is it sold... jk jk . Very glad that this wasn't a Coloring Book situation. I'm inferring from Matt's posts after big-boy-jesus' birthday there will be another round available, that what everyone else is ascertaining?

    Far - Water & Solutions: What Happened

    So this pressing differs from the SRC, as in a new stamper?! That's boss if so. I was not exactly blown away sonically by the SRC copy or perhaps just a bit not into Far like I had been in the early 2000s when I first discovered their music. I was so crazy about them back then I spent like $80 on a Quick CD and Listening Game not as much. I absolutely love the original two Sketchy EPs and "Tricky", that'd make a good single LP. I do have the Sketchy#1 10", did #2 ever come as a vinyl pressing?

    Kanye West - The Life of Pablo

    LoL. I found a copy of school spirit unedited in lossless last week by chance. Time to find that hill.

    Kanye West - The Life of Pablo

    But Yeezus was one of the most poorly mastered albums of all time... of all time! I really do want a more dynamic version of Yeezus & Pablo. It's a shame all that exists is digital with the same 4-5dB of dynamic range. I'd like to see a double LP of Yeezus with some alternate versions i.e. before Rubin cut out the strings/orchestral parts. And the original sample of the choir on "on sight". Oh and a copy of "School Spirit" without the expletives reversed. School spirit uMtherUkfa !

    PO Now: Failure - LP5 and new EP

    I really disliked EP3 a lot. But as a whole album, it's grown on me quickly.

    System of a Down Re/Pressings

    I should say "People are saying..." I know several people personally who just hate the band.
  15. I love this LP... but not as much as Ixnay. Hmm. Still have a signed CD of Ixnay. True story I met Mr. Holland when he was coming for recurring training in his CitationJet in the early 00s.
