Reviews:
  • Nahn
Not an easy decision on MOV's part — cut it to a 2xLP set and lose some of the seamless transitions on the album. But in its current form, it actually sounds fantastic — the low-end is deep and resonant, and the highs soar. This was a release done right. Snap this up before its value rises.
  • Kalrajas
This is a really beautiful release of one of my favorite Mew albums: A masterpiece! But oh boy, how I wish they would have made a double album out of this. It's not only that the mastering in itself sounds slightly over compressed and is fairly bass-heavy (not necessarily in a good way), but who on earth thought that it was a great idea to cut such a bass-heavy mastering to a single vinyl with around 25 minutes on each side! It's just not physically possible to do that AND have it sound great at the same time. Especially the inner tracks A Dark Design and Louise Louisa sound over compressed, woolly and slightly distorted. While it doesn't sound terrible, I would still prefer the CD-version. Such a shame...
  • Darksinger
Bought mine yesterday. Kind of upset about how it sounds to be honest.
  • Fountain_tenderness
i have classic black vinyl version. LP in black anti-static sleeve, with booklet and poster. nice issue.
  • Foginn
Any proof of this? That is not supposed to exist at all?
  • Saberdragon
What number has this copy? And can I buy it?regardsbrenøe
  • Granijurus
I got my copy yesterday and it sounds great! Don't really notice quiet mastering nor over-compressed sound.
  • greed style
Apparently I spent $39.00 so you won't have to. This is a sucker-punch to fans.
  • Neol
FFS it sounds like I'm listening to FM radio. Over-compressed. I was so looking forward to this vinyl release, but it lacks fidelity. :( Listening thru a Sansui G5700 and Yamaha NS-10Ms.
  • Kipabi
Weird that this has no album matrix on it, but maybe that is because of the clear vinyl? Sounds great overall though. Bass is nice and rich. The lower volume is not that low, to me anyway. Just thrilled to have this on vinyl.
  • Rolorel
A great sounding pressing. Mastered quieter than some of my 80s albums even, but you can tell they made sure all of those strong transients from the drums are preserved. The top end is open and clear, and the bass is deep. The volume drop is in no way a negative for me; just turn it up louder to compensate. Thankfully they really got the details right on this one sonically. Also was really impressed with the quality of the sleeve and inserts.
  • Keramar
Beautiful pressing and I'm so happy to finally have this album on vinyl. I'll admit I was a bit concerned when I first dropped the needle and noticed the quieter mastering, but with the album cranked just a smidge above my usual level, the music is definitely experienced to it's full potential. Grab one of these before they sell out!
  • Stonewing
My copy is a tiny bit warped which i rarely see on MOV releases. Doesn't affect sound as far as i can hear and the mastering sounds awesome to me, just the aesthetics of it not being 100% flat when spinning. How is your copy?
  • Xar
The volume drop is due to the length of the album, 53 mins. That's well past the recommended capacity of a single disc. Crank it and it sounds great, though.
  • Mustard Forgotten
My copy is flat. Only thing is the low mastering. I have heard the same from two of my friends who also bought the record.
  • Eyalanev
The mastering is very low on this record. I don't know if it is intentional, but a bit strange. Reminds me of The Cures Disintegration - "This music has been mixed to be played loud so turn it up."
  • caster
That's usually the case when they squeeze 53 minutes of music onto a single LP. I have to say though, I'm pretty damn pleased. I was quite shocked with the way they transitioned into side B. Literally a fade out in the middle of Saviours that starts on side A and continues on side B. Weirdly, though, it's probably the best place they could have done it. That section is very minimal. I think MOV knocked it out of the park, personally. I just cranked the stereo a bit more. Overall, the sound quality is pretty stellar.
  • Browelali
Not a surprize; George Marino died of lung cancer in 2012. His mastering techniques have been fading since.
