Picked up Acadia Strain's latest album on vinyl tonight. Found out my store WILL have Fall of Ideals, but NOT New American Gospel on Record Store Day...
I reviewed the vinyl edition for our Classic Wax series at Metal-Fi. Just be aware, it's a picture disc and the sonic upgrade over the fairly well produced original CD isn't that big. You can definitely hear the bass more, and there's a bit more width and depth to the stereo image. The cymbals to my ears actually seemed a bit pushed back in the mix compared to the CD, but they sounded more natural and less "processed." That's really about it. Considering a good copy will cost you $100+, IMO it's not really worth it.
Really? My song of the year. I guess I'm an old burn-out too?
I quite liked it, but Ozzy doesn't sound as good. He sounds sort of uninterested, and the performance reminds me of karaoke. I'm missing the passion!
