    YES! I had a feeling this one would be next due to the first one sold so good. This is excellent news, can't wait!

    Thank you AF!

    Fantastic! So great to see Audio Fidelity do another title from this band. Can't wait. I'm already screaming "Bulls On Parade" over and over in my mind!

    Wow, I was not expecting another RATM title...great news! Hope our host can comment on the source material.

    BOB was likely still using analogue tape in '96 yes?

    EDIT: found this on gearslutz

    Both Stephen Marsh and I agree that, compared to the master tape, the issued version sounds thin and hard - really neutered bottom and vocals pushed way forward again like the self-titled. It's really like an extreme version of the last album. The real mixes as described by Master Marsh sound big and ballsy - tons of attitude. Recorded in a rehearsal space (that Stephen used to frequent) and he says you can hear the burlap over insulation 'inside-out walls' construction of the room on the master tapes.

    So, how do you guys want it, thin and hard or big and ballsy? Final mastering is this week.

    Wow - this is incredible news. I hope this release does well so that we can get Battle of LA and Renegades - these 2 are my favorites from them but are unfortunately completely ruined by the overly compressed cd mastering.....

    Woohoo!! Even though it is my least favorite RATM record it features some of my favorites and after experiencing SACD (Cd layer though) mastering of the s/t issue - I'll definitely grab this one too :)

    And +1 for Battle of LA next time \m/
