Excellent price, comes with simple artwork, with a deeper meaning. I recommend the CD, it sounds phenomenal. Love the samples.
Very lengthy, but I get sad when it ends, it's such an adventure for your ears. I could listen to it a million times. I really like the theme, along with the songs. I will help you listen and rank all the songs. If you want to hear the story, listen to the songs By the way, there is a twist in the last 20 seconds of the last song, listening to it Made me laugh, it is beautiful. I love all the songs, but: 1.
Beautiful song. Amazing twist. The theme of his last name has lots of meaning. Can't spoil it for you thou- 2. Catchy flow. The song is perfect for anything. Whenever one listens, it makes you feel something. It just has so much character and your head will be bouncing up and down. Such a nice mood. A bit overrated, though.
Terrific sample. Morphs well with the lyrical flow and hard beat. Holds the heart of West Coast Rap. I like the origin of the "Ain't nobody prayin' for me" used throughout the album. Very religious-gimmicky song. I adore that theme. The song has such a wide spectrum of enjoyment. Just an amazing package. When Artpop came out, they did the same thing, as well as Joanne. I'd like to say this will grow on those who are on the fence initially, because it's her best album in years.
Rain on Me is her first number 1 debut since Born This Way, a very smart follow up single to Stupid Love that didn't seem to make much of an impact. A shame, because that song is just as good.
Edit: Seems like a lot of people are saying this album is either dated or underwhelming. Suddenly Joanne is better when Joanne was hated when it came out. Personally, I think this album has much more immediate hooks than either Artpop or Joanne.
They vocals are soaring, the songs glisten and sparkle. I stand by what I say. Maybe in time others will find they like it better. Its just in a clear plastic sleeve. I wasnt expecting this record to be in a clear plastic sleeve. I enjoy the artwork on albums and this album has none. This is very disappointing. If you want artwork do not but this LP on vinyl.

This is undoubtably Gaga's poorest work to date. Poorly produced, this album is not even good enough to be played at the background whilst cleaning your home.
The sound is horrible. Nothing innovative, nothing new. Just "boom boom boom". It's all over the place. Very loud, very 90's like. Imagine a no-one-ever-heard-of Euro pop band - it's worse than that. Even the collaborations with Ariana Grande and Elton John sounds really really bad and aren't enough to save this mess.
This album should have never be released. Long awaited new release from the lady, the stupid love single has been out for a while as most will know I have been listening to the hd file for a week via my daughter big fan of gaga and my copy of the vinyl arrived Friday 28th May still awaiting cd and its a thumbs up from me it's an album that's been played many times, the daughter and my wife love the club feel of it and I agree it's a has a more dance feel and her vocal quality suits it well.
I'm sure it will be played regularly and seems well produced especially in HD on good equipment, at 42 minutes not a long album but entertaining anyway. Fantastic album got it within 2 days. Very quick delivery!
Thank you x I love lady gaga and after listening to a few songs off the album they are stuck in my head! Catch covered "Shake Your Head" and released as single, which peaked at 8 in Norway.

It was then that I noticed that the actual tracks on the individual albums weren't in the same order as on the cover or the original, and that there were actually some additional tracks, like one of those extended cd reissues. I can only guess what that all means, but it can't be good and can't be from the masters. Caveat Emptor. I think it's worth putting this on.
This is an exchange with HD Tracks I had a while ago. I think it speaks for itself. From: Support [ mailto:contact hdtracks. Some Girls came from the tapes, so I suppose it depended on the condition of the tapes. They use their own mastering engineers, so I imagine they aim for the best possible result.
The compression may be an aesthetic choice, or may be done so to accommodate use on portable devices. At any case, I do empathize with your comments. My apologies if someone has already asked this.
However, the LP reissue is Can you tell me please what the original sources for the HD Tracks files are? Or just As for our sources; We are provided with the best possible analogue masters available.
On top of that, our sound engineer has over 35 years of experience in cutting and mastering records for major labels. Very interested to compare to originals though. Our records are pressed in the Netherlands record Industry- one of the best in the business. This is my biggest grievance with vinyl toady. Lots of labels have cottoned on to the fact that they can make great margins from knocking out a badly sourced record so long as they put a 'g audiophile vinyl' sticker on the front.
I sometimes think these labels would do better getting a mint, native original LP, cleaning it, transferring it to 30 ips tape via a reference level set up and then cutting again. Call me crazy but I think this would sound much better. Obviously if you only want the classics then you will usually get a good deal but if it's anything that was on an independent Been reading Plain Recordings and 4 Men With Beards are one in the same and have the same mailing address.
Most of what I've read isn't positive. Not uniformly bad but definately hit or miss, and for typical vinyl prices I can't afford to take chances on labels like these. Can anyone chime in about the simply vinyl nick drake releases? Legend states that "Pink Moon" was the only Nick Drake album that still has the existing analog, 2-track master. The rest Legend also states that because of the availability of the "Pink Moon" original tape, it is the only remaster done with an entirely analog signal path.
I purchased this album with that information in mind. The album, IMO, sounds incredible. I've never heard a 1st pressing, only CD masters until this point, so I can only compare what I have heard.
It's a Universal remaster. Seems to be known for its superiority over other, questionable reissues. Is Get On Down if you're into hip-hop at all. The do a lot of reissuing of Wu-Tang LPs. Not a single one I've heard comes even close to the OG presses. All are flat and muddy sounding.
I've heard better MP3s than some of their presses. Scorpio and many other "to be avoided labels" are reissuing many hip rare underground records that the high end reissue labels aren't doing and will never do. I've been around vinyl since the 70s and many of the Scorpio records sound good and have stickers stating "manufactured by Rhino" whatever that means. Try finding an original copy of Gris Gris. The Wah Wah label from Spain has reissued tons of obscure 70s records from France and Germany that I am glad I am able to own in the vinyl format, regardless of the source.
These "bad" labels have their place and often provide a service for people who want more than Living Stereo and certain Blue Note records in their music diet. Rhino is a division of Warner Brothers and if you see Rhino, chances are sources are good, even if the label is Scorpio. Of course sometimes content trumps source but if the source was originally analog and the source is available, using a CD to cut a record is inexcusable.
About the "manufactured by Rhino" you see on the back of the Scorpio reissues, those are legit and pressed by Rhino. John, Gil Scott-Heron. All of the Meters and Electric Prunes albums have the "manufactured by Rhino" sticker on the shrinkwrap. I thought it was cute that Rhino used the wrong labels on the Meters and Dr. John LP's so people don't pass them off as originals like that dealer in New Orleans by using the 2-color Reprise W7 label for the Meters and the old 50's Atco label with the harp for Dr.
The reissues sound nice but the original recordings weren't audiophile material. I suspect the James Brown reissues are from CD but it's nice to see them out there, it's also funny to see a mid 60's King LP with a early 70's Polydor label with JB's picture when he had the big fro. The Electric Prunes and Reprise Meters albums sound great, the Josies are OK since the original recordings weren't that great but the music will get you moving.
I prefered a complete analog experience, that's why ilisten to Lp in the first place. So i buy my lps produce before the digital era, with warts and all. Another informative article by Mikey and terrific feedback from the many knowledgeable readers; most of whom, I imagine are far more knowledgeable than myself, which is why I am throwing my question out to the field.
Is there an easy and inexpensive way I can improve my system? I built a low budget LP playback system below a few years ago and, frankly, the sound is uninspiring. And, I still own the first LP my family ever owned - Neil Diamond's Moods from , which my mom bought on impulse as we were returning home from school and she saw the album in a record store window.
She hit the brakes, put some money in my elder brother's hands he was the bravest of us three boys, although not the eldest and said "Tell the store owner that your mom wants to buy the man hanging in the window. The album is badly in need of a proper scrubbing, and sounds as noisy as ever, but we still love giving it a spin.
I know the individual components are quality pieces because I never buy any hardware or software the real subject of this article that hasn't received some favourable reviews from credible sources, so I am sure it's that they are not complementing each other as a system.
I've been toying with the idea of replacing the Pro-Ject pre with a Bellari VP tube pre amp, but I am wary of throwing money at the problem out of blind ignorance. They have also released some excellent sounding pressings, for example of film soundtracks or historical compilations—they are not a pure re-issue label, they also have original releases, though no original artists I think.
They also seem to be in the habit of clearly noting transfer sources, involved engineers, studios and plants, which is always commendable. Best see if you can find a review before purchase, or whether you can give it a listen. Don't dismiss them outright because of the label, because you might be passing up a good vinyl. Well if the source and other info is listed on the record, of course consider that release.
Thanks for that information. A lot of websites that sell new re-issues have little to no information about the pressing. And even if they did, as a new collector, is it trial and error or is there a comprehensive list out there of the good and not so good producers?
Acoustic Sounds is as good as I've ever seen in terms of having commentary on re-issues. I'm getting into this conversation pretty late it looks like but I've gotten some really great sonding Lp's on Doxy. Plus they're titles that most labels wouldn't dare put out. All these records sound very good, so I'm very happy with this label. While the Music on Vinyl might be from a high rez digital source although given I've never seen one on HDTracks etc, maybe not , it definitely isn't just ripped from CD, as the mixes are distinctly different.
It's definitely a good effort. Wax Time reissues are sold widely by reputable record stores like Amoeba and Rasputin, and while not in the price range of the true audiophile masterings, they're not exactly cheap, either The tell-tale sign to me is that, while the jacket art is pretty close to the original, the label never is -- it's always a Wax Time label, never Columbia, etc.
Again, this is s jazz material that is in the public domain in the EU. Wax Time is made in Spain, if I recall correctly. Last time I checked, they didn't even have a website, just an email address, which also makes one suspicious that the operation is a bit fly-by-night.
Perhaps they don't have the dynamic range of a re-mastered LP from a major label, but I find the sound quite enjoyable on my vintage system. I have not yet tried any of their jazz releases. And I must say Why can't the major labels get their act together in this regard?? Same deal for Jazz Wax Records, too -- more public domain stuff that appears to be 'mastered' from CDs. For your general information, unlike other reissue companies, we have only ever used analog masters on our vinyl releases.
Not only were they very cheap, but they are great-sounding, quiet, g above-average pressings. They are:.Fame Goes To Your Head (voc, inst)/No Typa Drugdeala (voc, inst) inch (Item ) Darn Good, Out Of Stock inch, Vinyl record Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
