An Evening With The Reminder

An Evening With Vinyl

The Reminder has arrived after a 21 day passage via USPS. Judging from the package handling, creases and folds it crossed Canadian\United States boarded in a pitch. Upon arrival I held it with the intent to return until I was haunted. My desire to hear it again was stronger than the pressing compulsion for flawless vinyl. I was moody and it's content would be my solace.

The album is the a genre defining with some truly engaging swings. I'm partial to listening with an Audio Technica AT440mla phono cartridge with AT120e. However, I trashed the stylus and so it spins in full micro-line effect. I am reminded that the AT440mla is faint and tinny. The phono setup sounds like cellophane & laryngitis for vocal passes but I'm forced to listen as so until the elliptical ATN120e arrives. To prove this I've tracked a popular tune for grins & giggles.

I really like this album but am frustrated by the poor recording quality of the CD. How is the vinyl in comparison?

The recording quality is good on the vinyl. I typically always go with LP over compact disc. There is a more head room and dynamics. This recording comparison just is not fair. I expect more from the vinyl and less from the disc.
