Anyone else have an opinion on the sound quality of this pressing?To me, it sounds quite empty & flat.I actually prefer my CD copy.
Same here with my clear copy, absoluttaly dissappointing and YES , mastering is different for CD than Vinyl. People who cares about the vinyl pressings make a special master and equalizing for a vinyl press. This is even more important when you want to make a new vinyl press over a CD that have never been released on vinyl before. the only explination that I see (thinking good) is that they didnt have the money/time to make it right and they just release it as a new item to sell... in any case it only prooves that Anachronsounds sucks making vinyl ( and thats very poor in the "VINYL ERA" that we are living! go to any little band in bandcamp for example, anyone sounds better than this! )
Glad I'm not alone in thinking this.Maybe it would have been better to spread the album over two records (45rpm?), but then again the album isn't exceptionally long so it's no excuse.Perhaps they simply used a CD copy as master instead of mastering it specifically for vinyl?I'm no expert in recording technology but I've heard that mastering for CD is different to mastering for vinyl.
This pressing is definitely muddy, most of the parts run into each other where there is much more clarity on my CD and my Rip from said CD.
