Of course you have to turn the volume up from the CD setting. Volume up, the vinyl sounds better than the CD - gut reaction. It genuinely made me wonder. I am not a techno head, why can't they always get it right like this? Reply Notify me Helpful. June 7, Report. I pretty much stay right away from gram reissues, more often than not they are very disappointing, usual reasons, they can sound like someone has smothered your speakers with a blanket, they can sound way too tinny, sibilance issues, horrible distortion from being pressed too loud etc Even though I have the original pressing of Goldfrapps Felt Mountain which has some serious distortion issues whether it was a pressing fault or the fact I bought it 2nd hand and previous owner damaged it with a worn stylus or something I'm not sure I thought this excellent album was worth taking a chance on with the gram reissue even just out of curiosity.
I have just purchased and listened to the european white vinyl gram reissue and I am extremely impressed. It just felt right to my ears straight away, not pressed too quiet or too loud, no dreaded sibilance or inner groove distortion. The real test was the high frequency sounds, again very little to absolutely no distortion.
I was even surprised at how well it handled the brilliant track Deer Stop, even the distorted vocals didn't get over distorted which is even more remarkable considering it closes out side 1 anyone familiar with vinyl will know that distortion is much more evident towards the end of each side I think I heard maybe 2 very faint ticks on the whole album and background noise was almost non existent, it was beautifully quiet throughout.
No vinyl pressing is ever going to be perfect there's always gonna be some surface noise, distortion, sibilance etc, either there will be very little and hardly noticeable,somewhere inbetween or alot, that's just the nature and charm of vinyl, but the quality of the pressing and how it's treated on repeated spins can make a huge difference. In closing I would definitely recommend this european gram reissue to anyone who wants this album on vinyl, hopefully a vinyl reissue of Goldfrapps Seventh Tree can be done this well, I'd buy it in a flash.
Amazing quality. This is probably one of the best sounding albums that I own not that I have a large collection.
