Side one seems to be warped slightly and as the tracks go on the quality of sound gets more and more awful, also the final track seems to speed up and slow down and distorts. This is not my deck I have no problems with any other records. I also noticed that the Center seems misaligned as the needle is rocking back and forth. Apparently there were similar problems on the previous reissue as well.
Sloppy and really poor service from DCD as it would appear that no one checked that the fault was resolved.
Also NO response from them on their Facebook page to complaints, happy to promote and sell, less so to resolve issues?!!!
Their music seems to be a combination of traditional music from New Zeeland, classical music, pop and a touch of early 4AD rock!

What became of the other lads who played on this-?
I hope Brendan and Lisa remember them when royalty checks roll in-have they disappeared-one played tympani on SPLEEN-and then-? Their playing was top notch- and so were some of the arrangements-if they had any say in them.
The subjects and lyrics put them so far above most of the dross around them, that I felt hope again, for music
This reminds me of the joys of Summer of 1984, and listening to it again-in better sound is -soul stirring;
I wonder if the 'Summer of Love' in 1967 was like this ?
Some dont give it full respect because it has an 80's guitar/goth motif. Meh!
The lyrics were profound with out being pretentious. Ocean, Fortune, WITW are my favorites.
AS they became more complex, eclectic and 'world' and the pretentions grew, I lost interest;
'How Fortunate the Man with None' -a fine piece im sure, but a little of this goes a long way
Dont get me wrong on DCD -the lyrics and subjects are generally well done.
But album after album it starts sounding like a 4AD Priest pontificating the nature of the universe.
With FULL respect for the man-does he ever feel/express joy-or smile? He is like a musical TARKOVSKY( a master, also)-continually profound, deep and serious-from what Ive listened to-and what I am generally drawn to;
DYING SUN and the rest I tried, but couldnt get into-and I enjoy eclectic music- PORTALS OF GRACE by Azam Ali is an example.Read more ›
