Man...I bet we have a lot of opposites in common

I remember when this first came out, the general reaction was that it wasn't Menos El Oso 2. I think time has been kind to Planet of Ice and many fans have realized its brilliance.

Has anyone been able to confirm the latest repress is a repress of the 45 RPM pressings from 2007-2008? The description on the store has the same "vinyl remaster courtesy of Bernie Grundman" sentence that accompanied the 33 RPM represses, but I’m guessing it might’ve been left there by accident.

I emailed David at Suicide Squeeze. He said this isn't a repress of the 45 RPM pressings from 2007-2008, and that "We recut the lacquers at 45RPM and moved to another pressing plant."

Is that good or bad news?

That's what I'm wondering as well, but we probably won't know until people have it in their hands and can compare.

 

I don't own this album on vinyl yet, but it seems the consensus is the early 45 RPM pressings are vastly superior to the more recent 33 RPM pressings. I've been on the verge of buying the rather pricey 45 RPM version for several months, and this new pressing isn't making the decision any easier...
