#2247 - Talking Heads - More Songs About Buildings and Food (180 Gram)(Front)

    • Originally Released:  21 July 1978 (US)

    • This Release:   2013

    • Mastering:   Chris Bellman

    • Comments:   Of the first 4 Talking Heads albums, this is the one I’ve listened to the least. Listening to this high quality reissue, I have no idea why. It’s packed with great tunes. This is the 180 gram EU reissue and it sounds great. Mastered by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering and pressed at Optimal in Germany. Soundwise, this is only a slight improvement on my original Australian pressing, which more than holds its own. May not be worth the extra money over easy to find originals, but it’s a keeper for me.

Do you have this pressing? If so, what do you think? Do you have a different pressing? How is it? Please feel free to comment.

Queens of the Stone Age - Like Clockwork (Front)

    • Originally Released:  31 May 2013

    • Comments:   A stunningly good release. The music itself is still growing on me with each listen, but this 2 x 180 Gram 45RPM deluxe edition is high quality in every respect. The gatefold cover is made of very thick and sturdy card stock, with beautifully designed inner sleeves. The vinyl, pressed at Pallas in Germany, is heavy, flat and (in my case at least) clean as a whistle. As for the sound, it is magnificent. There’s a depth to the sound that I have only ever heard on a handful of releases, and the soundstage is nice and wide, with all the instruments and voices clearly defined. I don’t know if this is due to being cut at 45RPM, and I’m not going to buy a regular edition to compare. Whatever it is, this is an absolute joy to listen to.

Ssssssssexy Cover

    • Originally Released:   25 February 1973

    • This release:   2010

    • Mastering:   Chris Bellman

    • Comments:   180 Gram reissue that replicates the original glorious gatefold cover, including billion dollar bill, cut-outs and insert. Most importantly though, this pressing sounds amazing.

One billion dollars!

Such a great photo – I don’t think they ate the baby (as far as I know)
