My local record store finally had Kanye's new album in stock. Excited to hear it, although the album was mastered by Vlado Meller and has a DR value of 4, with some of the tracks going as low as DR 2(!). I wonder how my poor ears can handle that…
Kanye West - Yeezus
While I was at the store I picked up two LPs that had arrived for me. I also picked up a Record Store Day exclusive Sigur Rós double album while I was there.
PJ Harvey - To Bring You My Love
Kraftwerk - The Man-Machine [2009 remaster]
Sigur Rós - Hvarf / Heim [limited edition colored double album]
When I got home I found out that a vinyl I'd ordered online had arrived and could be picked up from my closest post office. When I was adding it to my collection on Rate Your Music I discovered that a total of four different version of the vinyl had been added there, all with the same catalog number. Because I had no idea which version I'd ordered (I assumed it was standard black, but no such version was listed on RYM), I decided to open the shrink wrap and take a look at the discs. Turns out they are clear vinyl, which looks absolutely gorgeous.
Agalloch - Marrow of the Spirit [clear vinyl]
