    A gooder. I've been listening to him quite a bit lately. Life of Illusion is an awesome song.

    Reissue.  Worth every cent of the $180 I spent.  Well done and the LPs sound exceptional.  This is the way all vinyl reissues should be.
    Awesome!! I have this as well & it's one of my favorites in my collection.
    The Live Anthology just slightly tops it though.. The quality is out of this world and the presentation (book style) is the icing.  


    Is the 2nd pressing as good as the first?

    I see these for just over $100 on ebay and I would like to pick one up if they are.

    If you have the 4-CD set, you're all good. Every track was digitally sourced, so you're not missing out on any analog warmth or depth. Other than having it on your shelf, there's absolutely no reason to own the 7-LP set if you already have the 4-CD set. Both sound equally amazing, but the CDs are certainly less labor intensive.

    I generally agree with this.  I have the 24 bit FLAC files along with the vinyl.  I actually did an A/B not too long ago because I'm strange like that.  I streamed through my Yamaha WXC DAC while playing the vinyl.  I just flipped back and forth between the phono and the aux listening for differences.  I could hear some extra depth or oomph to the bass on the vinyl, but it was pretty subtle.  I don't regret the purchase in the least though.  For a hundred bucks, completely worth it in my opinion.

    I have the OG version w the discs and single LP.

    Maybe I'll pick up a used version for under $100.

    ^ Thanks!  I'm not familiar with that 12" so that's nice.  I suggest you sell your version for $795 also and buy 8 1/2 copies on vinyl.

    HAHAHAHAHAH!!!  I'm thinking it's a pipe dream to sell for that.

    Post holiday vinyl splurge.

    - Grateful Dead - Cornell ‘77
    - Pink Floyd - Pulse
    - Explosions in the Sky - the Wilderness

    The Pulse box is awesome. Very nice package.

    Posted this in the other section also, but since I did finally get the US version today.

    Ok if anyone cares here are the differences between the US and EU pressing of vault #8.

    PACKAGE
    Packaging is exactly the same, no difference in the book style package and exact same spine information, style and position.
    However, the EU version does have the LPs in separate black paper sleeves. So you may see more scuffs from the US version as you try to remove them from the book pages. I would have liked the black sleeves to by poly-lined, but I guess you can't have everything.

    LPs
    The records are the EXACT same cut. They're from the same plates, plated at RTI. Both versions were cut by Levi Seitz at Black Belt Mastering in Seattle. These plates were then sent to press at Cascade Record Pressing, per information here. Now there is not any information regarding this plant in the runouts. Usually Cascade etch CP-#### on their work however there are none present on the US pressings, if I had no information from here, I would have assumed they were pressed at RTI. The plates sent to Europe were pressed at GZ Media. This can be found by their job number stamps on the EU pressings runout.

    Sound
    These should sound EXACTLY the same. Since they're from the same plates (cuts), there should be no sound difference. Now I have not listened to both yet, and pressing errors can cause audible differences, but that would be the pressing plants fault.

    The look of the LPs look very nice, all seem to be flat, and labels centered. Look forward to listening and see what we have.

    It sure is. I read some discogs reviews first before hitting up my record shop yesterday. I knew what I was getting.
    gave it a spin today and sounds great!!!

    How does that Ice Cube album hold for today?  I find him laughable now and can't take him serious.  Just curious as to what you think?

    Love that Kowalski single. Scream Teams cover of 96 tears is fantastic.

    I've read a lot of great stuff about The Fall and Buzzcocks but neither have registered will with my inner ear to this point.  I just can't seem to get into them, and yet they are so well received my many people with similar tastes to mine.  I keep waiting for the music of those bands to click with me.  Of course, if and/or once they do, there goes some more money, haha!

    Sound is good, not terrific. Sound stage is fair. I would like to hear a little more depth in the music, but I guess that what you get with digital.

    The pressings were great, I have nothing bad to say about either US or EU pressings. Flat, quiet, centered.. really good.

    I really want to compare to the FLAC HD, but if it's the same quality, then I don't want to open the damn thing.  Catch-22.

    Yeah, I read that somewhere but apparently those days took their toll.  At least they weren't fatal times like the end result of too many  others.
