This pressing sounds muddy, plain and simple. I've never been a fan of the sound quality but at this point if I sold it, I'd be losing money. Oh well
Art and design are beautiful, but the inner sleeves are made of thin paper, they are very delicate.About the sound: it is more dynamic than the mp3, however it is not enough to be good, in my opinion, this one is of the records with the most boring and flat sound in my collection, without details or sharpness.
Does anyone have just the Mr. Muggs picture disc for sale? I ordered it and the seller failed to provide me with it.
I just listed it on eBay. on ahead and make an offer, and mention you're from discogs.
midget_thug Does anyone have just the Mr. Muggs picture disc for sale? I ordered it and the seller failed to provide me with it. i found it here. . . . . .
the infamous demon album. Goliath is the demon they spoke to. the album itself is supposed to be a ghost trap
My favorite Volta album???? If they ever reunite it would be delightful to see reissues on colored vinyl!
I have ordered this record twice now from different sources and both came with the same weird scratches on the B and C sides. Has any one else seen this? Both records were open but told to me unplayed. plus the scratches look almost intentional but like I side they were from too completely different people on opposite sides of the US and the scratches look almost identical. On the same sides just in different locations. I don't know it is really weird. I mean is this record cursed also or is the a conspiracy agents me having a good copy of this record? If any one knows anything I would be interested in hearing before I go buying another one. I can send pics also to help explain.
Are the very small scratches? I bought a copy for cheap cuz of this issue and you can only hear about 2 clicks due to it. Only paid about 60 bucks so it was worth that small defect. You have me wondering if it's common now though. I do have another copy with no scratches. The scratches are in the same spot on the 2 sides like there was something inside the sleeve between the albums.
It is probably from the glue on the inner sleeve
I was worried about the sound quality of this, especially considering how much these run, but this is a really stellar-sounding press. Some records just sound "as good" as the CDs on vinyl but this one sounds really unique. The vinyl has a punch to it that you don't get elsewhere. If you're on the edge and can't decide I say wait for a cheap one and then go for it!
WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!in my humble opinion, last of the saga of the REAL essence that volta started with. Not knocking octo or nocto but c'mon... this shit seriously kicks!!
They definitely lost some of their essence with Octahedron, I don't think many people will argue with that, but IMO Noctourniquet was a great comeback and closer for them. It's not as balls-to-the-wall adrenaline inducing as Goliath or as classically psych-prog as Comatorium but it gets a lot of points back for being tastefully experimental.
mr. muggs 7 inch is here included too, so all is the same. or is there any version in black vinyl out there
