A thread for newly purchased records - CD, LP and Digital Download formats.

Lost Ground by Defeater





The narrative in the lyrical content ties in with the artwork; it really is an incredible EP.
The record also came with the Digital Download.

Do people even buy CDs anymore? I can't imagine this would be a popular thread.

That said, people still do buy CDs Razz

Unsuccessful trolling aside, I would like to see some statistics to back your claim up.

The last CD I bought was 101 More 80s Hits. 5 CDs containing, as said, 101 Eighties songs.

I don't often buy CDs, and never buy digital music, on principle. Usually because it's not in my prefered audio format. If downloads were wav files, I'd be more inclined to purchase.

Not a great deal really. Some Jesus and Mary Chain stuff and I'm trying to hunt down some old PWEI CD singles that I should have bought a long time ago. When they were on RCA they released a lot of single mixes and some odd B-sides that never made it to albums or on compilations (and do we really need three different PWEI compilations with nearly exactly the same bloody tracks?). Finding it a little difficult to track down "Very Metal Noise Pollution" EP and "Wise Up Suckers".

FLAC > WAV. Also, Apple offer "ALAC" (FLAC with support for iTunes metadata) downloads for certain songs.

A deluxe edition of Bleach is coming out soon. I'm not sure what the bonus material is, but it might be interesting.

It should be out now. My friend's got it and he reckons it's fantastic because the album has finally been mixed properly.

Also, there's a live Reading Festival record of theirs which apparently is a lot better than Wishkah.

I heard a couple of songs off it on the radio. It seemed good and its been getting great reviews. There's also a DVD of the perfomance.

It has been remixed? I wonder what it sounds like. If it is over produced, the music may lose some of its intensity and angst - Which is what makes it so charming a record.

Oh dear, the band's carer is a bit of a mess of music really. Probably the "This Is the Day...This Is the Hour...This Is This!" album which has the first three real PWEI sounding singles (Def Con One, Wise Up Suckers and Can U Dig It?). From there probably the other albums in order from "Cure For Sanity" which has a more harder dance influnce. There's also their first album "Box Frenzy" which is really Beastie Boys/KLF influnced and a bit of a mess as they're making a trasition from Grebo (dirty pop punk) to an Age of Chance and early KLF/JAMMs type outfit. There's also a compilation of their early Grebo stuff called "Now for a Feast" which is mostly a bunch of a minute and a half pop punk songs.

I thought the original sounded fine. Though the songs from the same sessions that appeared on "Inseticide" needed mixing pretty badly. Admittedly something like Mudhoney's debut album and even Superfuzzbigmuff EP sound a lot better than Bleach, and they had the same producer, studio and label. I saw the remastered album in stores, but decided against it. Think they've devalued my UK "Sliver" CD single by including that live show on there. Wish Sub Pop would have included some outtakes from the sessions like the alternate slow version of Blew and the unused version of Floyd the Barber (they used the demo version on the LP).

Can you indulge me a moment of stupidity, but how is flac better than wav? Isn't wav pretty much pure PCM that can be scaled to any frequency range, whereas flac uses lossless compression? Or is that the crux of it - it has all the benefits of a raw PCM audio stream, but has the ability to compress/uncompress on the fly (thereby saving storage space) and possibly hold metadata as well?

Oh, and I thought iTunes doesn't support flac? Last time I tried importing some it had a hissy fit... this was a couple of years ago though, newer versions of iTunes might play with it a bit better.

Anywho, as for me, I'm a bit of a slacker when it comes to buying CDs, I've been getting distracted by too many SID podcasts of late Razz Last CDs I got that I've enjoyed are Ladyhawk (no laughing, she's awesome, there's a NES on the CD jacket Wink ), Grafton Primary's 2008 album (can't recall the title off the top of my head), and The Galvatrons' debut album, which is full of slightly nerdy, glam-80s wiggly-wiggly win.

I know! I wept when I found that out. Joy Division's albums have damn-near perfect production, so to do this to them is criminal. Sad

I'll stick to the Heart And Soul boxset for now.

@Greoboruri: Thanks for that. I might track down "This is the Day..." then. I've always been vaguely interested in PWEI, but I'm just slightly too young to have been into them when they were active. The main reason I found out about them was because tDR did a lot of their album covers.

Pretty much this. FLAC is lossless, so no sound data is lost. This means it has all the benefits of an uncompressed PCM stream, but with around 75% of the filesize. Unlike a WAV file, you can store ID3 tags in it, too.

It doesn't. It supports ALAC, which is a modified form of FLAC that supports iTunes metadata, among other things.

I've wanted the Heart and Soul box set for a while now - I only have Unknown Pleasures on Vinyl, which gets played on a weekly basis.

Everything else I have of Joy Division is in Digital format.

The thing is, though, if you want to hear it loud, just turn your stereo up.

Mixing albums so they're constantly peaked is a really bad way of making something sound loud, because it kills the dynamic range. You end up with music that's just solid noise, and not in a good Sunn O))) kind of way, either. Have a listen to albums like Oasis' "What's The Story Morning Glory" or Sleater-Kinney's "The Woods" or the last Metallica record, and you'll know what I mean. They're all horridly clipped records (which is a shame in Oasis' case, as its an otherwise amazing record).

This isn't even an audiophile thing, either. Pretty much anyone can tell when music is heavily clipped, because it just sounds wrong.

If a band is meant to be loud, then play them loud. Don't let some mook at a mixing desk do it for you.

A friend of mine bought it back when it first came out (which was some ridiculous number of years ago now), so I was able to grab it off him. It's basically everything you ever wanted to know about Joy Division but were afraid to ask.

They've also recently remastered all of New Order's Factory albums, which should be interesting. I'll probably get at least the remasters of Power, Corruption and Lies and Low-Life.

EDIT: Just remembered the whole reason I went to post here...

A friend of mine came over today and I ended up with about 4 GB of music from the CDs he brought around. Among other things:

- The first two Mercury Rev records
- Three early Wire records
- The new Flaming Lips record
- The new Plastic Ono Band record
- Two albums by a band that I can only render here as **** Buttons
- Some old Frank Zappa/Captain Beefheart records
- A couple of older Fear Factory records
- The remaster of Nirvana's Bleach record
- Nirvana Live at Reading Festival (watched the DVD too-- fantastic show!)

Also bought that Them Crooked Vultures record off iTunes.

There's probably some stuff I forgot. **** Buttons are really amazing, though.

Yeah i do agree with you, just turn the volume up if you want it loud.

I have a few albums that have been so called "remastered" that have been mixed so much that have killed off the dynamic range and sound distorted and end up sounding worse then the original release. As for manowar albums i still enjoy them.

Anyway last Cd's i purchased were

Metal Chruch - The Dark , Epica - Design Your Universe & Korpiklaani - Spirit Of The Forest

Uh, Greo and I were talking about PWEI before. Also, I have a lot of dance music, I just didn't get much of it yesterday.

The second **** Buttons record is pretty electronic, though (well, prog-rock, but you get the idea). It's godsdamn fantastic.

Maybe he was talking about the UK prog/psychedelic band from the 1970s with the same name. Razz

(BTW, I have that album, and it is really bizarre.)

Dunno if this counts but picked up Bill Hicks - Rant in E Minor (he's not a singer he's a stand up comedian. Desperately needed some Bill in my car for the half hour drive home...oh how I love this man).

As great as Rant in E-Minor is, Relentless is his best album.

Don't think I saw Relentless in JB.

I also have the 'best of' kind of CD (forgot it's name. Philosophy I think?) that was put together made of snippets from all his shows - pretty well done but would like them all individual.

Get the "canonical" four albums: Dangerous, Relentless, Arizona Bay and Rant in E-Minor. They're the albums that Bill actually made before he died (though Arizona Bay and Rant were released posthumously). Rant is great because it was made when he knew he was going to die and didn't give a crap anymore.

I picked up R.E.M. Live At Olympia and London Calling by The Clash this morning.

I just did, and they are quite excellent... except for the singer I find him a bit rough for my tastes and the music.

Recent pick ups for me:

Drowning Pool - Sinner
M83 - Saturdays = Youth
Stone Temple Pilots - Thank You
Rammstein - Liebe Ist Fur Alle Da
Killswitch Engage
Karnivool - Sound Awake
Korn - Life is Peachy
Disturbed - The Sickness
Devildriver - The Fury of Our Maker's Hand

some of it was new stuff to listen to and some to replace what I lost when I broke up with my ex. Live may suck, but at least the music is great.

"The very best of" provides a good selection of their best songs, but if your planning on buying all of their albums getting a best of is probably not a good idea, sorry Confused

I'd like to say I am more knoweledgable on the subject than I am, but generally people regard "The Queen is Dead" as the best, it has plenty of great songs on it too. 'Meat is Murder' and 'the Smiths' are good ones to go with after that. I have to say I'm not a "best of" person, but any "best of" of the Smiths is always brilliant.

I think I remember a song of theirs. Cassandra or something?

I wasn't specifically referring to dance music, exactly. I tend to listen to electronic stuff and hip-hop these days - stuff with beats (though I think I like downtempo electronic more - Frou Frou, Royksopp and the like).
