Default These Days 2LP

After many years of owning a vinyl copy of These Days I played it tonight.
The sound quality is emense. The drums, guitar and Jon's vocals are so raw.
It has much more of a live in the studio feel to it.

Well worth getting a copy if you can find one.

Has anyone else noticed the difference in the sound to the cd copy?

I own this and have a vinyl rip of it. Yes it's light years ahead of the CD version. Not that the CD sounds bad or anything but it's lacking in terms of dynamic range. On vinyl, the drums actually pound out of the speakers and the bass is nice and thick. This is my go-to version of the album.

I need to find a vinyl rip of that then, as with the government import restrictions I literally can't buy anything and I won't find it here.

Your Prime Minister needs to wind her neck in a bit and stop acting like a tool.

Actually, is our President as we don't have a Prime Minister, though we have a Chief of the Cabinet of Ministers. Still, yes, she needs to do that.

Yes but Argentina is one of the biggest countries in the world, so getting into a border might be a little hard. As soon as I'm back in Buenos Aires I'll try to find one, there're several vinyl stores and there might be one These Days around there.

A little help, please? You guys are lightyears beyond me when it comes to technical analysis of music and recordings. It's fascinating to read your discussions about production and styles and use of real instruments vs. synthesizers or machines and autotune,etc.

Rumen, what am I looking at here? The images look very similar to me except for color. Am I missing something? Or is that your point, maybe? That there isn't a lot of difference?

(Or is this discussion so far over my head that it would be useless to try and explain?? )
