Anybody got the LP? Worth it?
I guess it makes them extra money.
I have really enjoyed the mellon collie and aeroplane flies high reissues, quite amazing how much great material they had considering those two releases were already very long. The adore one is very weak by comparison, i've only heard the bonus tracks on spottily (gone now) and it only had 4/5 of the discs, but what I did hear was very unmemorable, some alternative versions were nice enough. Not sure if the LP comes with the bonus tracks, but the mellon collie one did when I got it.
that I enjoyed listening to on Spotify (until they took it down). There's a disc that is only a mono version of the album which is a bit pointless (sorry mono fans).
Adore is a brilliant album but I wouldn't fork out £55 for the Box Set.
yeah i've listened to a lot of the extra content on Spotify and decided against picking up the box set.
Probably should have used a different word, I meant the Vinyl reissue of the album itself. I heard the original vinyl pressing was actually mono and rather good but this is stereo. It's £20 so wondered if any of you lot had it, don't want to waste money on cack.
and yeah, amazing album innit.
all of the past pumpkins reissues have had terrible vinyl, think amazon took it off sale because of complaints, I have the MCIS one and it is very bad, hopefully they've sorted it now. the fans were pretty vocal last time so I'm sure if it is bad it would be easy to find out.
wow really? the MCIS one is mega money as well, what's wrong with it? I keep hearing about some botley pressing plant called GZ, is that anything to do with it?
there was definitely talk of a bad pressing plant that they keep on using. think the issue is it was mastered too loud, and this becomes more problematic towards the centre of the record where there is less space for the grooves. it just sounds really distorted. I ended up getting it for free, it took ages to arrive so they refunded me assuming it was lost, then it arrived, I sent an email saying it had arrived but sounded awful and they said just keep the refund and vinyl
gutted. thanks for pointing that out though. might ask local record shop if i can test Adore first, they've got the facility i think
