Reviews of the Melvins - Stag (11):
Did a sound comparison of the TMR reissues versus the MOV reissues: this definitely benefits from being released on two LPs. Sound is noticably clearer. More direct with more air around the cymbals and hi-hat which is very noticable on track "Goggles". TMR release is also cut louder than the single disc MOV release. Both of the other TMR reissues (Houdini + Stoner Witch) sound inferior to their MOV counterparts though. Soundwise I recommend Stag as TMR release but Houdini and Stoner Witch as MOV releases.
This copy sounds awful, along with the rest of the third man reissues. Noisy as hell. Avoid and get the Music on Vinyl reissue instead. Way way better. If your copy on third man sounds good, wait till you hear the MOV. Sold my third man copies of all three and got the MOV as replacements. Much happier.
Okay - it is a drag that they haven't used the original vinyl artwork. Fans want the original 'look' of a release, so it seems like a no-brainer... However, the gate-fold is high quality; heavy-weight card, great image resolution and features enlarged paper-cut artwork from the original CD booklet on the inner panels (I remember some great artwork in there, mind...). But - How does it *sound*...? Play back on a Pro - Ject turntable with an Ortofon stylus through an old Kenwood amp. First thing to notice is - this is a relatively quiet press. The intro of 'The Bit' demands you turn the volume up. But when the song hits - it's crisp, dynamic and full. So much detail! I'll admit to having grown up listening to this through poor quality CD HiFi systems. I was floored by how much new detail I was hearing (particularly on the middle section of 'The Bit' and the scream section on 'Goggles'). This album repays repeated listening. Having purchased the CD when it was released in '96, I'm hearing so much more on this vinyl pressing. Also (and this is relevant, I think), this double pressing really helps when 'digesting' the record as a whole. Side C almost acts as a primer for '97's 'Honky' (a favourite, oddly overlooked record in the Melvins' catalogue). I actually ordered the 'Music on Vinyl' (European single LP) pressing of this after reading all the comments here slating the Third Man pressings, but was sent this in error (didn't complain as this press retails for £28 here in the U.K!) - was so pleased when I sat down and played back. What a treat. My pressing of Stoner Witch is the Music on Vinyl re-issue and that is faultless, and I have heard a *lot* of bad things about Third Man vinyl. But personally, I think this has really benefited from the remastering and is a quality press.
Great pressing. Awesome sound. And you know you need it loud from the first song...
This is a great Melvins record. The fidelity of this vinyl is superb. But the vinyl itself is noisy and it's a drag.
This was the best sounding out of the three from tmr. My bootleg single lp version sounds just as good though and the boot has the proper cover art.
Unfortunately Third Man Records did not use the Original Vinyl Cover/Artwork for this Reissue. The Original Vinyl has a smiling flower while the CD Version has that "mad flower" which was used here.Otherwise it's the same as with the other 2 TMR Reissues: bad pressing quality by URP with off-centered sides. I think mine has Side 3 and/or 4 pressed off-centre. Not as horribly as on Houdini though.
This sounds so much better than the original pressings. Louder and more dynamic. Don't waste your precious cash on an original, spend it confidently on one of these reissues.
this sounds so very very good go for it fer sure
I am hcv men
Sounds great! Just received the 3 T.M.R. reissues and all sound amazing.
Remastered Melvins here & there! Mmmmmm....I m wondering how it sounds...
