Quality Single LP Vinyl.
on 6 June 2017
Won't harp on about the actual album and music other than to say, this was my Soundgarden discovery album and I have been a fan of everything before and since. If you're looking at this, you probably know how good the music is and this album will always have a special place in my heart.
I have had this on CD for years, since 1991, with the bonus SOMMS disc. I have been slowly picking up 'special' albums on vinyl over the last few years. I was originally drawn to the recent 2-LP re-release on vinyl but the price just seemed a bit steep (£30+), although I'm sure it's a lovely package. So this was my next best option - the single LP original release, doesn't specify whether it's remastered or not (although buying through Amazon it came with the Autorip MP3, which is the remastered version) all for just under £13.
This version has very stripped down packaging - single LP in a white paper sleeve and outer sleeve with basic track information (the original CD I own has expanded packaging with lyrics etc.) but I wasn't fussed about that.
The important thing was the sound quality of the vinyl itself......and it doesn't disappoint! On first listen it's a big and bold sound, deep bass as well as picking out little nuances that I've never heard on previous listens on CD. No surface noise either when playing which I have found on some other purchases, even when new.
So I would highly recommend this for any Soundgarden fan on a budget who wants to grab a quality bit of vinyl.
