Warped & Defective Vinyl and HORRIBLE Mastering
First off, this LP was packaged impeccably by Audiophile USA so I do not hold them accountable for any of this honest and brutal review. A See Moreudiophile USA's box is like a tank with multiple layers of extra cardboard, bubble-wrap and popcorn. The album cover was shrink-wrapped perfectly and no dings whatsoever in the cover. The cover and sleeve are beautiful. The vinyl itself however, is Warped & Defective and has HORRIBLE Mastering. 2007 was around the rebirth of vinyl I am thinking because this LP sounds like $hit. I only played Side 1 because I do not want to run my $2500 Kiseki Blue NS MC Cartridge through these nasty grooves ever again. There was extra vinyl all around the edges of the record from when it was sloppily pressed. Picture an untrimmed piecrust. Come on Bruce - you're the BOSS! Oh well, live and learn. I will still buy vinyl from Audiophile USA as their packaging is the best I have yet to experience and I have shopped 'em all folks. They are highly recommended by me.
