Today I was listening to my original CD version from 1997 on good headphones (Grado GH2). With the right kind of mood and chemical balance, I get sucked into Jason Pierces magnus opus each and every time... except for the times when I try to play this cult classic on my turntable. The original vinyl version is noisy as hell and the Plain reissue from 10 or so years ago sounds even worse. Why in the world did this super massive and influential late 90s classic never get some decent audiophile vinyl treatment? Why, why, why? Its one of the only albums that still makes me happy to own/use a CD player. Still I’m sure a well done vinyl reissue would sell like hot cakes - so why hasn’t this been done yet?
