My Bloody Valentine reissues


#1

Mine arrived in the post today, anyone else get theirs? Really enjoying Loveless belting out at the moment. It’s not as bassy as I expected, often “remastered” seems to mean “with the bass turned up” but the balance doesn’t seem to have been messed with in that way here.


#2

Picked to up from the post office today but not listened yet - saving it for later when I’m doing work


#3

Has he turned loveless up?


#4

How are the liner notes?


#5


#6

Hmm hard to say. It sounds loads better, lots more of a dynamic range but it’s not clear how much of that is a function of me hearing it on vinyl on a nice set up rather than a shitty cassette player back in the day or a shitty cd player more recently.


#7

It sounds… Different.

Not better or worse, just different


#8

hmmm…it could be my audio set-up which could be better… but I am finding this more different than I thought I would and perhaps due to my familiarity and love for the original Loveless recordings I am slightly underwhelmed…seems a tad trebly…maybe that’s the point or i just need to fiddle with my mixer…and Shields knows much more than I do…as it stands though I think I’ll keep my other vinyl copy and the cd remasters…Haven’t yet checked the 'isn’t anything"re-issue but I feel that might work better for my tastes

This thread has caused me to part with £27 of my moneys. I don’t need it, but liveless does belong in my shelves somewhere.


#10

Listening to sometimes now
pretty sure it’s my fav song ever


#11

Ditto (as in favourite song ever). Like standing under a waterfall of guitar. Shiver.


#12

Sounds like the whole thing was pretty intensive…

Will pick up my copies once I’ve been paid!


#13

hopefully mine will arrive today then

was not expecting them to be on time


#14

“The obvious thing to do in this day and age would be to cut it onto two vinyls”.

aaaarggh!


#15

Mine just arrived. Did anyone else get 2 copies of isn’t anything one in the record sleeve and then another in just a plain white sleeve?


#16

I think some copies have been shipped with a test pressing thrown in. Consider it a bonus.


#17

The one in the official sleeve had a bit of surface noise and the one in the plain sleeve didn’t so I’m guessing they bunged the extra one in as a quality control thing as Sheilds got grumpy any the quality of the original pressing.


#18

Got excited it was the new album when I first opened it.


#19

Yes I got the same - I haven’t listened to both versions yet but I’d be surprised if I detected the difference - I do think this latest mastering of Isn’t Anything is great and is my favourite version (in contrast to Loveless)
