Absolutely one of the best sounding LPs in my collection. The dynamics, tone, warmth, clarity - UNREAL. This BLOWS AWAY the CD. Can't recommend it enough. (I am sure the black vinyl version sounds just as good!)
The last review says this is an overpriced gimmicky colored reissue. The MSRP is the same as the black vinyl, maybe a few bucks more? Nowhere near "triple" the price of the black vinyl. It also sounds fantastic, highly doubt the black vinyl sounds any different. Maybe back in the day the colored vinyl sounded bad, but from an audiophile label in the year 2017, colored vinyl and black vinyl sound exactly the same. Highly recommend either color of this reissue, the sound is TREMENDOUS.
Dude, just try ripping your vinyl to flac files and you can see the dynamics measured in the soundwave imaging are the exact same for the color and black vinyl variants. You are not an expert so why should anyone listen to you? Stfu. Your "ears" and "high end system" do not qualify you to know what you're talking about...sorry
lol I don't care whether you want to believe me or not. I'm the one who bought BOTH variants, play tested both on a high-end setup, and made an informed opinion that the black vinyl variant of Soup is superior to the gimmicky colored variant. Then I sold my "soup-colored" variant for more than triple what I paid for it and that was that.You? You're the guy who has ZERO proof to the contrary, who just sounds mad that he forked over more money for some pretty-colored vinyl variant that sounds like crap compared to the black variant. If your colored variant sounds so good to you on your obviously subpar system, then why keep beating the issue into the ground here? Sounds like someone has sour grapes.Doesn't matter to me whether you trust my opinion or not. The fact that you're here arguing an opinion you yourself can't offer proof to the contrary of is all the "proof" anyone reading should need. By all means, enjoy your gimmicky Ben Folds Five red vinyl, bruh. A fool and his money are soon parted.Can't wait for your next reply that will be rife with subterfuge and assumptions for the sake of arguing on the internet about stuff you are clearly clueless to. Whatevs...smell ya later.
Hi everyone, first post. It's been my observation that colored vinyl markup has more to do with collectibility. The "rare" baseball card. The rest is good / bad pressing. My complaints about colored vinyl is the maintenance. It's much harder to see dust and crud.
Yet you still haven't proven your colored vinyl myth to be the case with either this reissue or the Soup reissue. Because what you're saying is simply untrue. All you have is your word, and since you've left plenty of angry reviews on colored vinyl reissues in the past, I don't really trust it. Seems you're on a crusade here. Glory to the black vinyl gods.Perhaps you are unfamiliar with this concept, but the burden of proof is on the one making the assertion -- that'd be you. I don't have to prove you wrong. You have to prove yourself right first before getting your panties in a bunch over the alleged drawbacks of colored vinyl.Yes, there have been colored vinyl reissues of albums that sounded bad. No, this does not mean colored vinyl is inherently evil. It's entirely dependent on the pressing.There's been a lot more garbage pressed to black vinyl than to colored vinyl, but that doesn't make black vinyl garbage.Since you clearly have no interest in proving your point when it comes to the Analog Spark colored vinyl reissues, this really isn't worth my time. Smell you later.
"So who's really feeding into the reseller markup of colored vinyl?"If you can't beat 'em, join 'em, right? I did in fact sell my "soup-colored" Blind Melon album for over $100 and made out good; let some other sucker fool himself into thinking he's got some audiophile edition of an album that substitutes sound quality for a gimmick like colored vinyl, which has been notoriously lacking in quality compared to black vinyl since day one, and is routinely discussed on the SHF forums where you claim to post.Notice how in that Soup thread at SHF you posted, NOT ONE PERSON could verify the audio quality between the black variant and colored variant? Just some guy named "Cowboy Bob" claiming that I'm probably pissed I didn't get a colored variant (when, in fact, I got BOTH) but offering no evidence to the contrary. Whereas I actually play-tested both against each other and can verify the black variant sounds superior to the "soup" colored variant, as black always will to colored vinyl.I'll take actual facts over what "Cowboy Bob" thinks ANY day. Yee haw!Just because you post on SHF doesn't make you an audiophile. ANYONE can claim to have a good turntable, setup, cartridge, etc. But someone claiming colored vinyl sounds just as good as black vinyl to justify their gimmicked color variant? That's a dead giveaway the person is clueless, as is the case with YOU and "Cowboy Bob", I'm afraid.
I'm a member over at SHF and other sites. No flaming of the colored vinyl is being done with the Blind Melon reissue OR on this reissue at all. I'm not playing this shit on a Crosley. I have a good TT, a good cartridge, a good receiver, and good ears. Stop misleading people with this old-fashioned idea that colored vinyl is inherently worse than black vinyl. It is simply untrue in this day and age.I did find this comment in a thread about the Soup reissue on SHF:"Now here is the thing...someone on Discogs claims that they have the colored and the Soup variant. According to him the black vinyl is vastly superior in sound quality and detail. Can anyone confirm???"source: Discogs comment that post is referring is from YOU. It's literally the ONLY negative comment I have read about the colored vinyl from Analog Spark. And then you followed it up with this comment:"I will sell my colored version for 2-3 times what I paid for it and make out like a bandit, while perhaps investing in another superior black variant copy."source: who's really feeding into the reseller markup of colored vinyl?
Colored variants immediately get sold for double to triple their original price on the online markets, offering zero incentive in the process. Some of you honestly sleep better at night knowing you own a gimmicky red colored vinyl of this album simply because the cover has red on it and they charged more for it? That's just ridiculous. Also, check around...just like with the recent colored variant of Blind Melon's "Soup" repress, the colored variant is getting flamed on Steve Hoffman and other audiophile sites for having subpar sound compared to the black variant, which is the way vinyl is meant to be pressed. Not on some pastel disc that compliments the album cover scheme at the expense of the sound quality.
Gimmicky colored markup that costs three times as much as the standard black variant and offers absolutely no incentive to justify its cost. Black vinyl will *always* sound better anyway.
Sounds excellent. Packaging is wonderful too -- I wish more labels used these types of jackets.
