Sure it could, it's not even a good closer ... and I'd also argue that a climax of an album shouldn't be in the last song (and that it's not here, given that I don't think there's much differentiation within the album itself) ... that musically, we want to hear a climax toward the middle of an album, and then resolve at the end. The best albums don't climax at the very end, they use the end of the album to wrap up all of the material. To bring you down from the ride. To naturally resolve.
Transatlanticism is the album that does this perfectly, in my opinion.
Every time I mention it it always blows somebody's mind, haha. I didn't notice it at first either, I guess because the rip that I had had too much empty space at the end of the last song, but once I got it right it was very cool.
RFTS sounded great, but I agree.. WP sounded a bit too flat for my liking. We'll be finding out in a few days exactly how GR sounds. Regardless, these TDS vinyls are something that I have to have in my collection no matter how good/bad the quality is.
RFTS was decent, I wouldn't say it was great. War Paint sounds bad. One of the few records I prefer to listen to digitally compared to vinyl. Both colors came out sounding totally meh. I'd love to do a remaster and rerelease it sometime, maybe with some bonus tracks. A boy can dream.
While I prefer digital, there's just something about vinyl. Maybe it was the nostalgia factor that made it sound better than WP, but dear Lord WP was horrendously pressed. I'd for sure throw more money your way if pressings are as good as The Graduate ones were!
Haha, thanks. I'll look into it in a couple years.
Compared to The Graduate pressings, how's that Lovedrug "Wild Blood" sound? Always wanted that on vinyl, just never bit the bullet..
I'd say it sounds better. They recorded that album in a very organic kind of way that translated really well to vinyl. Might be the best sounding record I've made. It's the kind of album that was made to be listened to on wax.
