RE: What vinyl are you listening to?

This evenings LP is The Flower Kings "Banks of Eden". I reviewed this album for Metaltalk.net, and was sent an MP3 to review from. I really struggled to hear into the mix, and was finding it difficult to write the review, even though I enjoyed the music. On a whim I bought the LP/CD package from my local shop and the music came alive, especially on LP. How anyone can listen to compressed music as a main source beats me. Smile

It's still Bend Beyond by Woods for me. A truly great album. West-coast with a scratchy psych-pop twist.

Mark Knopfler's "Privateering" from last year. I wasn't a huge Dire Straits fan but this is a really enjoyable listen, and excellent quality sound too.

And he's peeling off those dollar bills
Slapping them down
One hundred, two hundred
And I can see those fighter planes.

Very good.  Quite similar to Becoming A Jackal.  My wife and brother were listening with me and it was instantly liked by all of us.  I think it'll be a grower too.  There are few extra tracks on the free with vinyl mp3 download which I haven't listened to yet.

This is such a great album, I've listened to it a few times today as I compare different Dynavector cartridges, fiddly work, but so far no broken needles  Smile
