Miles Showell is too arrogant to even acknowledge the fact that all things equal, a AAA pressing will best his smoke and mirrors operation 1/2 speed nonsense he's been churning out over the last few years. If you look at his interviews in the past it's abundantly clear he looks down on analog/vinyl in general and is likely only doing the 1/2 speed projects because that it's were the market/jobs are these days. Digitally sourced projects rob us of the fleeting opportunities for them to be done right. Such a shame as these are some of my favorite albums, and could certainly benefit from quiet surfaces. Too bad Intervention Records didn't get this project.
