I disagree. If you are listening on the proper equipment, you will notice a difference.

Also: Is the artwork going to be 100% the same? Identical jacket? Exact same insert? No bonuses at all? I'm not sure we know all that yet. Even if it is the same in the art aspect, there is still a difference between 180g vinyl and lesser quality vinyl. Not sure how you can guarantee them sounding exactly the same.


Yes.
You are right, I shouldn't have said guaranteed.

Same artwork, just added their sticker to the cover. http://store.mtsrecords.com/products/7850

I really dig vinyl from a collector's perspective, but does your average listener really bother to listen close enough to pick up on the difference? Call me a non-audiophile, but I'll stick with my Revelation copy.

i think hes referring to the A/V cable craze back in the day. companies used to sell "premium" gold plated av cables promising better quality..but there was no difference between the cheap 20 dollar cables and the 500 monster ones. it was an analogy.

That definitely is an advantage. I guess the point of my argument is that MTS releases records right after they've just been released and expect people to buy them because they're "better."

They sell audio and HDMI cables and mark them up in price thousands of times when they do the same thing as a cable that cost fractions of the price. The signal is all digital so none of the quality is lost as opposed to when the signal is analog.

Alright, didn't know about this since I'm not in the US, thanks to both of you.

MTS also takes months to send their shit. I still haven't gotten my Transit 'Something Left Behind' LP. What the fuck.

I loved this comment on the release that I saw on PunkNews.org:

So they're celebrating 10 years, despite 8 years of inactivity? Man, my first girlfriend is gonna be surprised next month when we celebrate 12 years together.

Email them about it. I did 5 days ago and got a response within an hour and they magically sent it out the same morning. Seems fishy but I did get it.

Same here. I got Forty Hour for $30 on ebay a few months ago.

I say they re-release that sexy clear Has a Gambling Problem vinyl again.
