Comment2012 - Merge / MRG268 / Remastered (White Vinyl) / Vinyl By request - Destroyer's Rubies. The running order of the tracks seems to be different from the CD - specifically Loscil's Rubies is Side 3 of the double album, rather than being tacked on at the end. The vinyl was new out of the shrinkwrap. Unfortunately, side 3 (Loscil's Rubies) was ridiculously noisy - bad pressing. The track itself has a fair amount of "static" noise, especially on parts 1 and 3, but there was significant noise beyond that which was not on the CD. I did my best to clean it up without impairing the flow and/or content of the music. Fortunately, The rest of the album was nowhere near as bad as side 3. That said, I would consider the rip trumpable if someone was able to get a better pressing. All things considered though, it is a pretty great record. Much more dynamic than the CD - DR12 as opposed to DR7 for the Special Edition CD. Just got a new phono stage and cartridge that together really sing - first rip with the new stuff. Hope you all enjoy!
