Vinyl lovers beware!,
This review is from: Cold Roses [VINYL] (Vinyl)
I am now on copy number two of this album and thought I should comment on the quality, or lack of it, of this piece of vinyl. 180g it may well be, but do not be fooled into taking this as a sign of good quality. My first copy arrived with disk one so warped that I did not even bother to risk my stylus. Whilst disk two had a much more consistent curvature, the whole way round! Add to this the frying of breakfast and altogether you have all the reasons that there was a mass move to CD.
I have just received my second, replacement copy and to be honest it is playable but crackles in a number of places, is still far from flat and is visibly not a nice looking piece of vinyl.
All this said, the sound quality of the recording is good, when not accompanied by crackling and the album content is great!
I love vinyl and buy a lot of it, such a shame that the quality is so variable.
