  1. Also, seeing how negative that last post sounded, I'll just add.... I haven't listened to this album start-to-finish in quite a while, and crushed mastering aside, it still holds up. "Eriatarka" kicks like a fuckin' mule. Brings back memories. I just wish there was a more dynamic master out there somewhere. I'm mostly collecting and listening to 70s and 80s pressings these days and you just can't beat a really good analog rock recording cut well where you can crank it all day.....
  2. 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 c
  3. I assume you sold that OG Siamese Dream right?

  4. I contacted customer service, and a guy switched out Doors for Demon Days for me before they shipped. Not sure if the same would work for you. Honestly, I might wind up getting the Doors album anyway.... IF the reviews are good. There really isn't a good version of the mono cut available anywhere. But VMP are so hit-or-miss on these, although sometimes they really knock it out of the park (like that Aretha record). Anyway, @MyEnemy, if they get this one right, I'll probably take that Doors off your hands.
  5. The first Zeppelin I bought, when I got back into vinyl in 2011, were U.S. originals pulled out of the used bin for $7.99 apiece. Some U.S. copies can sound AMAZING. (Ideally, if they have an "RL" or "AT/GP" in the deadwax. There's more to it than that, but it's a start.) The "wrong" pressings can sound like bad AM radio. Of course, I didn't buy the right pressings, and wondered why Zeppelin sounded so bad on vinyl. Then I got the Mothership on vinyl, used for about $40. Compared to the "bad" pressings, it's a clear improvement. A few years later, the 2014 reissues came out, and those
  6. Sadly, yes, even the ones originally recorded to tape. That's why prices for the analog originals stay super high. Once in a while an artist is smart about it (like Petty doing an AAA reissue of Wildflowers) but not often.
  7. Sigh. I was a huge fan of this band for sooooo long, but now.... I just can't. But I'd still buy a repress of Desert Life in a heartbeat. Even if I know in my heart of hearts it'll just be a super generic vinyl-cut-from-digital issue. At least I'm lucky to have fantastic sounding copies of their two best albums: The double AP of August (seriously, buy this if you haven't before it's stupid expensive) and the original double Satellites cut from tape (bought in 199-ish for... $15 I think?).
  8. Also available here, with shipping comes out to around $85. Based on the description I'm still not sure the original samples are gonna be included.... But if not, then what was the 3-year legal holdup? https://thesoundofvinyl.com/*/*/Since-I-Left-You-20th-Anniversary-Deluxe-Edition/6XSJ0000000
  9. A National setlist without Terrible Love OR Mr. November OR Fake Empire OR Bloodbuzz Ohio? Was this even a show in 2018?!? FTR I would've loved to catch a show like this. The last couple times I've seen them, I've suffered from "National Fatigue".... Not their fault, just that the new stuff doesn't grab me and they tend to rotate the same handful of older songs. I guess this is what happens when you follow a band for a while. The third time I saw them remains my favorite setlist (and performance) of theirs. I know why Matt won't do it now but MAN I miss the years when he would play s
  10. I think I have Variants #4 & 5 out of /100 (approx). Saw her play solo in a room that held maybe 50.... She was sold out of the tour variant or I would've snagged that too. Still waiting for 6131's elusive "Plays Quietly Without Pops Or Clicks" variant.
  11. The QRP August is either between pressings (which has happened before) or is OOP. Either way, smart move on grabbing via VMP. AP also needs to repress both their versions of Pet Sounds while they're at it....
  12. If this doesn't sum up the Taylor Swift marketing strategy, I'm not sure what does.
  13. The fact that the guy who once screamed "God is dead/ And no one cares," while writhing on the floor in S&M bondage gear, just composed a perfect 1930s musical pastiche of a score in 2020 is.... mind-blowing.
  14. Thanks for the heads up. I spent one very long, very fruitless Friday, driving to 5 different Targets who all had "6 copies in stock" according to their website, and none on their actual floor for sale. (I guess I should've looked in children's clothes, in hindsight.) And during a pandemic, at that. Not a good idea all around. So I will gladly order multiple copies of this online, and let Target deliver to me, rather than dealing with humanity yet again. And yes, multiple copies.... because I've been a PJ fan for 19 years, and if I've learned anything, it's that anythin
  15. Yeah, apparently all of the $20-25 vinyl reissues use the same digital mastering going back to the 80s (done by George Horn). The only difference is the color. Different outlets sell different variants each year: VMP did one, as did Kohl's, Cracker Barrel (!!), and I think UO has done 3 or 4 by now. If you want all-analog, this is the only one to get, and it's gonna set you back $150+ at this point. (The 45 RPM version of this is even pricier.) But you might get lucky and find one cheaper!
