Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Accelerate [VINYL] (Vinyl)I bought this for my boyfriend as he's a big REM fan like myself but unlike myself he's also a vinyl nerd. When I first got the vinyl and gave him it we were sad to see that we were given two side one records. Luckily Amazon sorted it out really quickly and by the end of the week we had the brand new vinyl all intact.
So about the vinyl itself, it sounds amazing. I'm not as nerdy about the details but it does sound better due to the 45 rpm usually used for singles. It's louder and sounds cleaner. The album itself is fantastic but I imagine anyone buying the vinyl will want it as part of a collection and probably know the album itself anyway. Even if you don't you get the album on disc inside the sleeve, so it's win/win.
I was very pleased with Amazon and this item.
