System Of A Down
About this deal
Anyway, here it is at last. What does the vinyl sound like? Pretty good! Real heavy bass, Shavo's lines sound literally alive through your speakers. John's percussion shines & Serj's vocals sit proudly & defiantly on top of the mix for all to hear. Picture at the cover is in deed enlarged but, dude, this is about 2 decades later and picture still original. I-E-A-I-A-I-O" contains interpolations from "Knight Rider" written by Stu Phillips and Glen Larson. Courtesy of Songs Of Universal, Inc (BMI)

Voices, and drums sound clear, bass sounds exactly as it should: at times pretty clear, and at times like opaque and bombed. Guitars sounds crashing and dirt. that being said I wasn’t expecting a mind blowing pressing, and it wasn’t any worse than any digital version of this record. would recommend:) Amazing to finally have this landmark album on vinyl. Quite why it took so long is a mystery, especially with the amount of shitty bootlegs that have been floating around for years.Flat quite pressing for me, sound is not as fatiguing as the cd, I did direct a/b comparisons on an expensive revealing system. Mixed at Enterprise Studios, Burbank, CA and Akademie Mathematique of Philosophical Sound Research, Los Angeles, CA.

I'm a bit dissapointed it is not 180 gr weight, and no merch inside. But it costs not so much, so okay... On the other hand I wound give even more to have SOAD in my collection, so I'd love to have a poster or something. mine sounds pretty decent. this album doesn’t have a fantastic mix to begin with, regardless of medium- and this didn’t promise a remix so i’m not disappointed. it sounds fine, perhaps slightly more warm and dynamic than digital but not a mind blowing pressing.
Of course it'll all depend on your turntable setup, but I'm pretty sure anyone with a half-decent setup will find the same results I have. Also there are some traces of pink vinyl on my white pressing, which makes me think they used the same stampers for all of these unofficial pressings.
