  • This pressing sucks. It is good to see that I'm not alone in having this opinion though.

  • DO NOT buy this pressing from Plain Recordings... Just as other users have said, an amazing album but the sound is just terrible. Huge let down... Unluckily, I blindly bought their 3 releases under this pressing, and the 3 are just as bad, no wonder they were cheap. If you just want to have an object that spins... Buy this. But if you are here for the music, stay with the CD's or older pressings!

  • Horrible sounding reissue..buyer beware!

  • Didn't have any complaints as far as sound quality on my copy like some of the other reviews. The packaging is rather basic and lacking though.

  • I love this album so much. Bought this record, returned it the next day .. One of the greatest dissapointments of my life .. Terrible sound quality, groove-distortion, vinyl imperfections audible, low res artwork .. Everything that could possibly be wrong with this recording has been messed up .. Don't buy this..

  • As far as I can tell, Plain Recordings are only really good at making expensive and inefficient frisbees. Don't buy anything from Plain Recordings if music is what you're after.

  • I have to ask: is it a low volume issue with you guys or what? I ask because with my turntables, this isn't an issue since I can simply turn up the master volume on the mixer which has an absurdly high maximum volume anyway.In any event, I compared the CD copy I already own to the vinyl after reading the reviews on here and the vinyl is genuinely an improvement in sound quality. Maybe my ears are retarded or something but that's my honest opinion!

  • Low volume on an LP raises the noise floor considerably. If there are contaminants present (which there obviously are in cheap vinyl) they will be that much louder when you crank the volume, often overpowering the music. There are optimum db levels and playing times for LPs, under 20 minutes per side at 33.3 rpms, and something like 12 minutes on 45 rpm.

  • Agreed. This pressing is terrible. Most Plain reissues have been pretty subpar, but this one is by far the worst. I waited 11 years for this masterpiece to come out on vinyl, and this was a huge letdown. My 128kbps AAC file of California sounds better than this coaster. The insert artwork was obviously blown up from a CD cover, and the "master" probably came from the same source! Plain has no website and there is zero information about them online. They are sketchy at best. I wish Rhino or Mobile Fidelity Sound Labs would have released California. 180 gram pressings of digitally sourced recordings are a joke. Especially when they cram more than 50 minutes of music onto one disc!

  • Exactly, and this release currently holds a 4.5 rating - one can only assume that these people are reviewing the album itself and not this awful, awful pressing. I would imagine a lot of those reviewers still have their copies sealed.

  • I have to agree that this is an absolutely shocking pressing. Whilst I agree that this most definitely could have benefited from a double vinyl pressing, it still should have been mastered to a far better standard than it was. Plain did the same with Disco Volante with both releases having a flat sound, low hi end, hi low end and muddy mid range. They distort when there are multiple things going on and on top of that it was recorded so low that you can here every little bit of dust in the grooves even on a mint pressing. Awful pressing, so bad that I consider Plain recordings worse than many counterfeiters out there. Plain are little better than confidence tricksters with official backing.The deficiencies here are concrete and intrinsic to the mastering that plain have done. In fact 'mastering' is a term that should not be applied here, we should stick to 'cut' as they are certainly not masters of anything by flat, and limp dirge according to the two Mr. Bungle classics they've violated.AVOID AVOID AVOID.Anyone out there who knows what they're doing with vinyl mastering and the will to do this record justice, please do so as we're crying out to hear this album in all its glory on what I consider a superior format.Equipment: Rega Planar 3, 640P pre amp, TX-SR604 amplifier, JB510 and Wharfedale Diamond 9.1 speakers, Rega Bias 2 cartridge (also tested with Goldring 2100). Then I played the CD...wow, excellent.*Edit: Rainbo Records were tasked with pressing this mess. Where the buck stops is not known, but Plain would surely have been told that one piece of vinyl would not be enough for the amount of music on the release and the demanding nature of that music which would have required even more space.Viva la Vinyl.

  • This album is nothing short of amazing, but this pressing suffers mightily at the hands of Plain Recordings (it's a good idea to stay away from them for the foreseeable future.) They had a chance to really do this album justice as every track was recorded analog and extreme care was taken during the production phase to make this sound as good as possible.Not so with Plain. Regular issue, nothing special, very poor quality artwork. Then there's the music. They could have spread this out with a little more thought on a double vinyl, but this sounds extremely muddled. The CD sounds better than this; actually, Spotify's digital streaming copy sounds better!You should still own this because it's a wonderful album that challenges the listener, but buy it second hand. Don't support Plain Recordings like I did.

  • Hello "leavingharvard",here's another owner of the Plain-pressing. I have to say my copy sounds just as clear and good as the original CD's. Where I do agree, is that on the artwork of the inner vinyl sleeve could've had more effort put to it, clearly. :)
