Elastic Skunk
My copy is super clean aside from an anomaly on 'D.' I haven't had any skate issues or "whooshing" sounds. My predications are that the count between plate swapping was super high. I think there are clean copies of this and some noisy copies. Pretty common in pressings around the 800-2000 copy range.
I love Mercedes
I can testify my copy came at least 98% perfect. The master is fantastic.
so are these golden pressings all pretty noisey?
mine is noisy AND has a few tracks that are totally unlistenable due to skipping. guess I'll have to track down a regular copy for listening.
DAMN IT this thing actually looks gold. Not just dirty yellow like I thought it would. Shouldn't have skipped the preorder..
espeically now that its going for 2-3 times as much as it was two weeks ago
Great record, gold vinyl is awesome.. But it should really be on a 1LP.
Why complain? It sounds fantastic. They didn't make it so loud that it distorts; it's clear and crisp. I'd prefer they stick to 2 LPs.
(The idea that you can 'cram' 20 minutes of music onto one side of an LP is a bit like the idea that you can 'cram' a fridge with one pint of milk. Go and listen to a compilation that has 41 minutes on a single side and then come back and talk about cramming.)
47 minutes is a perfectly proper LP length. 60 minutes would have been pushing it but I've got discs that are that long and sound marvellous. Putting something this short on a 2LP just results in side changes every 10 minutes and an unnecessarily loud pressing more prone to distortion, tracking errors, etc. It starts feeling like a compilation with that many breaks.
