Default Revisiting trail of dead - source tags and codes

Discogs alerted me that a 2lp reissue of this album is being released. I put my cd on for the first time in ages and it's still beautiful. Never really got into anything else they ever did but this is the shit.

Worlds Apart is a great follow-up that deserves more credit than it got, partially attributable to P4k giving it a lashing for no good reason other than to backpedal off justifying the perfect 10 they gave Source Tags. Cool band who suffered from too much critical scrutiny in their prime even though they never really made a consistent record in the second half of their career. I wish Aereogramme copped the same amount of hype after the fact, they well and truly deserved it.

Album is bananas, one of the 1st records that convinced me to reassess the guitar tone I was getting, love how the guitars almost sound like brass horns at times, "Baudelaire" is fucken 1 of my faves, plus love all the crazy sounds and segways thru teh album makes me wanna just blow farts out of my butt in all the colors of the rainbow

Saw them play source tags front to back in a tiny tiny venue. Always a good live band but that was something else

I love how there's always a thread about this band every 3 months (and finally not one made by me).

Source Tags & Codes was and still is a big album for me. Unlike most of what was shat out from the rock world in 2002, it was legit crazy and blurred lines between genres. And it still sounds incredible today. Relative Ways and the title track still make my heart ache, but I'm a pussy so whatevs.

I really enjoy just about all of their output. I don't know what all this shit is from people who didn't like Tao. Like, come on fuckers, this isn't SP2 we're talking about; give the shit a chance.

rando on discogs about the euro pressing:

I'm so disappointed. Rubbish pressing. The c-side is badly off centre resulting in horrible warbling. Ugh!!!

I might get me the original then.

Shit like this is why I've held off on vinyl reissues in general.

I really don't understand how they fuck up some (re)issues so badly though. You get test pressings when you have your album pressed. You listened to it with preferably a group other people, usually the ones in the band, who know how it's supposed to sound. You give your feedback to the company that presses the vinyl.

I mean that's what my band does with our albums, we'd want to be sure our 300 copies don't sound completely warbled or something. You'd imagine that bands that actually sell stuff make sure of this even more.

i'm sure you don't have to worry about copies of your records being repressed by different labels. that's the difference between a reissue and a repressing.

the companies mostly putting out worthless reissues don't care about the quality. they are glorified bottleggers.

two notable offenders are: "plain recordings", and "4 men with beards". especially the former. the latter isn't bad but they are unofficial and source from CDs.

Well i wouldn't jump to conclusions that quickly. There 30 discogs reviews that say it 's terrible and one that's said 'well at least it's cheap'. I'd give them the benefit of the doubt. Alas my copy of It's A Wonderful Life by Sparklehorse was 30 euros though.
