Unhappy modern pop/rock records

The other day a local record store was going out of buisness, so i thought that id buy a few records. I bought a smashing pumpkins record and brought it home to listen to it. Maby its just me, but it really sounds like they just took the digital recording (maby even strait from the cd???) and put it on a record producing machine. Now a days, do record companies just record digitaly then transfer over to records for the limited production runs that most rock records see? Compared to some of my dads much older and way over played records from the 60s/70s, the old overplayed ones sound much better.

I would say some records are good and some bad. I bought some records recently also. "Welcome to the Monkey House" by Dandy Warhols sounds great. The White Stripes "Elephant" is good also (apart from a bass-heavy track my record player doesn't like - it skips). Green Day "Warning" on the other hand doesn't sound very good - the older Green Day records are fine.

Best regards,

Default Matador Records

Matador records had the following to say about the new Mission of Burma album:

"Said double vinyl version will be mastered in true all-analog from the 2-inch master tape at Sterling Sound - guaranteed no digital stages - and will be pressed in 180-gram vinyl at RTI in California. "

Somebody still cares...

Isn't Elephant recorded on all pre-1970s (ie analogue, valve) gear?

I believe that is the sripes preference for recording, yes. Not sure about the age but they do use a 100% analog studio.

This bit is written on the inner sleave of disc 2:

"All songs on this album recorded to eight track reel-to-reel at Toe-Rack Studios, Hackney London, England by Gentleman Liam Watson in April 2002 except track 4 recorded at the BBC Maida Vale Studios by Miti

No computers were used during the writing, recording, mixing or mastering of this record"

Best regards,

I also find that it's pot luck with any recording, not just LP. Generally I much prefer the sound of my modified Planar 3 over stock Marantz CD6000KI but all the Beck CDs I own sound great. However, the best sound overall comes from Lambchop LPs - perfectly clear, smooth and detailed; it's a good job they are a great band too

BTW, it's Toe Rag studios

Default We need something new

I'm looking forward to sacd and dvd audio. I hope they put an end to the cd once and for all. Those mediums are analog like it should be, not the digital **** like cds. I still prefer the lp to the cd, the sound of the lp ain't that sterile

I think he meant that they were analog-like, like it should be.
