Did anyone order Amputechture or compare the CH reissue to the MOV reissue?

Based solely on the fact that I listened to the MOV once and the CH once (years apart) the CH is superior. I've not done a side by side and my setup has changed for the better since, but I'm guessing the CH is superior. Having typed all that, the MOV sounded just great. So...I dunno.

So it looks like the October pre-order for Deloused is a repress by MOV?

If true I hope I am able to grab one at my local on street date. Variant is very slick and goes much better than the puke variant VMP did.

feels like a site typo but what are the chances they half press green between A & C to ditch their remaining illegal gold stock from 2015?

There was nothing "illegal" about the 2015 press. Cedric was just passed he didn't actually own the rights to his music.

technically it was, not for Cedric but for Omar. At the time, MOV was pressing for Universal Europe as a loophole to Omar's exclusive vinyl rights as stated in their original contract. They weren't aware of the represses until Cedric went on Dean Del Rey's show (or Maron?) and explained the situation, with Dean mentioning how he was about to buy a copy until he saw Cedric's tweet about it being a bootleg. It all seemed sketchy at the time but was ultimately proven by the Cloud's Hill represses. Tremulant and the Summer Session demos were never a part of the contract hence they have been released digitally while all studio albums can only be released by the band on vinyl.

 

ps how can I remember that but still forget to buy dish soap after work today?

Him calling it a bootleg, and it being pressed due to a loophole does not make it illegal. If there wasn't a clause disallowing that pressing in the contract and MOV paid licensing to the owner of the contract (the label) then it isn't illegal. He didn't like it and didn't read the contract closely enough. The Cloud Hill represses that came 5ish years later don't prove anything regarding legality of previous presses.
