    (This is a copy of what I posted over on the Mastodon thread) I was checking out the different 2-LP pressings of their albums, and it's weird that Hunter starts at around $80 but a few of the others are actually pretty reasonably priced...

    Just found this thread while casually lookin to see if anyone knows the best Leviathan pressing. But here's a heads up DON'T PAY SILLY MONEY FOR CRACK THE SKYE ON 2LP!!!! I had it years ago, hoping it'd best the cd. It ABSOLUTELY DOES NOT. Even...

    Totally! Just spinning it, this album is foking unbelievable! I didn't expect such a terrific album at that point. And... it still gets better with each listening. I also love the fact that they finally have a skeleton on the cover!!!!!!!

    I love this album, right down from the artwork, and find it really laughable when people are calling it "commercial". It's not "Remissions" - so what! - but it's inventive, fresh and heartfelt. So many layers. It's a really great, modern metal...

    What is "CTF"? "Crack The Fkye"?

    Contrary to Discogs the European vinyl edition of "Emperor" does have the full "CB" initials in the deadwax. Not sure who pressed it but it's outstanding, polylinered inners and one of the most silent records I've recently heard. In fact there is...

    Best succinct review of this album one can get, really.

    Yeah, bad sounding Mastodon LPs should not be surprising anyone these days. They did one proper double LP of Crack the Skye that is beyond expensive now because the only version they reissue is the single disc bastardization (which either has...

    Yes. And usually it’s fine the second time but I rarely have issues with their packing. I think it really depends on the area you live and the warehouse that’s used, based on comments throughout the forum over the years.

  12. latheofheaven liked bresna's post in the thread Best Sounding Version of Kind of Blue.

    "Kind of Blue" was recorded in the hallowed CBS 30th Street Studio. This studio, a former church, has an incredible sound that I think comes through better with the stereo mix. Miles Davis & Paul Chambers had their feeds fed through the echo...

  14. OldSoul liked Travelin Man's post in the thread Goats Head Soup Deluxe Edition coming.

    The subject matter of “Brown Sugar” is quite dark and complex, as is “Dead Flowers” and really that whole album. You can’t tell by just the music, I suppose.
