Vinyl version of Isla Review,
This review is from: Isla [VINYL] (Vinyl)
This is a quick review of the vinyl version of this recording.
First off, the music is great. A sort of world-jazz, as I've heard it described, with an interesting combination of instruments and sonics.
The vinyl version does not come with the bonus track that is on the CD and download versions. But don't despair, the record comes with a download coupon for a high-quality 320kps version of the album c/w the bonus track. The sleeve is made from rather thin stock and therefore prone to damage if one doesn't handle it carefully. The vinyl pressing is average. I was a bit disappointed with the quality. There is noticeable pops/clicks on my copy right out of the shrink wrap. I think if you're going to do a vinyl version of your recording, a little extra time and money would be a wise move. Otherwise there doesn't seem to be a lot of point, to me anyway.
In closing, 5 stars for the music, but 1 star deducted for an average vinyl pressing.
