One of the best albums, if not THE best hip-hop album of the 's. I've got so much love for Kanye based on his limitless talent - he truly is one of the greatest artist of our lifetimes with an absolutely insane understanding of musical techniques. I think most people don't care to try and understand that this goes far beyond the music itself - the melting of fact and feeling, love and hate, happy and sad - duality and emotion which Ye seems to be able to paint a perfectly balanced yet vivid picture of using LP chosen canvas of personal, social and societal reactivity and reflection, meanwhile never forgetting the most ancient of harmonic rules that predates all popular music, and bringing it up-to-date with celebrity culture by personifying and addressing society's bloodthirsty appetite for entertainment and consumption in my opinion he goes on to illustrate this better in "Yeezus" - I think he discovered the amazing impact of the subtle or extremely distinctive comparison of feelings through the music.
This is just scratching the surface of the harmonic association that Ye uses to make the audience feel emotionally connected to the feeling of the music and the tonality of the composition in the wider context of himself as en ego-driven entity, while simultaneously singing about the most absurd, abhorrent or mundane things How does he make us feel so close, yet so far away from him personally?
The emotional connection? The celebrity driven disconnect? The perspective of the lyrics? He never sings "to" you, it's always "at" you - it's always in the context of someone else: his partner sJay-Z, the media, governments, art, fame, even his own thoughts I keep discovering tiny nuances of Ye's personality on old tracks that I listen to and it throws through a loop trying to figure out what it all means - Hopefully I get there in the end :.
I bought the album because I like the music, however that is subjective so not something I would think needs a review from a stranger on the internet. What I can say though, is that the packaging is poor and the corners are damaged.
The sleeve for record 2 is badly torn and the records are very dusty and don't look of a very good quality, at all. I've yet to listen to the sound quality of the vinyl but I don't hold much hope. I'll update the review on first listen. I received the wrong product Karaoke Machine instead of the vinyl, a bit disappointed as it was for a colleague's birthday.
However, the refund is now being issued and another vinyl was purchased. I have rated four stars due to the mix up, but delivery was prompt and on time as stated. Also, the vinyl that did arrive is beautiful. There is a slip at the front so you can choose which cover to have on the vinyl.
Colleague was very happy overall! Report abuse. This album is one of Kanye's best, I absolutely love it! This vinyl is a work of art as it comes with various different pictures so you can pick what is on the front of the vinyl. It's spread over 3 discs which means it's a full on listening experience. I went to use the vinyl very excited as Kanye is my favourite artist only for me to find as the first time of playing it to skip.
I looked for ways to stop this from happening as there were no visible scratches I tried almost everything I could see to no success so if you want it as a collected get it but if you want to use it avoid it.

Support your local independent record store. Sturgill Simpson. Over the past year, the group recorded the album in their hometown, collaborating with producer David Bottrill [Tool, Rush, Muse, Peter Gabriel] behind the board. As their most ambitious body of work to date, it consists of 15 tracks, surveying sonic landscapes of rock, psychedelia, punk, metal, alternative, and prog threaded together by the innately expressive musical interplay of these four musicians.
At the same time, an atmosphere of loss, loneliness, and longing permeates through the trio of cathartic vocals as they musically say goodbye to old friend, confidant, and longtime manager the late Nick John by architecting a magnum opus that bears the influence of his eternal memory. The War On Drugs.
Courtney Barnett. Vinyl LP pressing. Bob Marley is the most recognized artist worldwide, whose music connects with people of all ages. LP of all races. With everyone. His message of universal love and compassion and his political stance for equality and justice has resonated with people the world over.
His ability to convey this message onto a lilting reggae beat enables people to easily assimilate the meaning of Album) he has to say. With his affiliation to Sanctuary Records who recently purchased both the Trojan and RAS Records catalogsDoctor Dread was granted permission to use those tracks for this project, which he had envisioned so many years before. That day in the studio in Kingston was pure magic.
The sole surviving member of the Wailers, Bunny Wailer, was on hand to experience this session as U Roy ripped through 14 songs in just four hours. The results are staggering and fulfill the demand of all successive artistic efforts- Make It New! So now with an amazing painting of the Rasta last supper gracing the back of the album cover and the musical notes flowing freely from a goblet on front, we are ready to present these remarkable recordings to all Bob Marley and music fans the world over.
I wrote 'Death Disco' about that. I played it to her just before she died and she was very happy. That's the Irish in her, nothing drearily sympathetic or weak.
The men had a cassette machine with an unusual tune on the cassette, which they kept playing over and over. The girl remembered the song, and that, along with her recollection of the car and the men's voices, is how the police identified them. The police eventually stopped the car and found the cassette was still in the machine, with the same distinctive song on the tape. To give him his due Levene went mental for it. We were at The Manor.
We had a drummer [David Humphrey] with us who was pretty Album) [ Wobble cited "Careering" as his "second-favourite track from Metal Boxand probably my favourite John Lydon vocal LP. Levene explained his synth playing in the song was an attempt to replicate the sound of ambient machine noise heard from a downstairs toilet, achieved by dropping an item on one of the synth keys to keep it going. Wobble said that Dudanski made extensive and imaginative use of the tom-tom drums  and Levene told Simon Reynolds that "No Birds" is one of his favourite songs on the album.
Meanwhile John is lying under the piano and singing that weird feedback voice, while twinkling the keys at the same time, just to be annoying. You can hear the piano on the record," said Levene. I didn't know what I was going to play. Wobble's playing the bassline and drums are playing so I had to do something. At some point John decided he hated his guts. He just wrote this really nasty, finger-pointing, over-exaggerated, ripping parody of what the guy was — 'Society boy.
We'd wear it wrong and it looked even better, we didn't want the black leather jacket look like these punk bands. So John just decided to hate this guy, that's what happens and there's nothing you can do. He wouldn't be his lapdog and John thought he was a star and wanted that.
He was galvanised into action and within a few hours 'The Suit' existed. Wobble whose playing in the song was inspired by bassist Cecil McBee and drummer Martin Atkins recorded the song together. Levene recalled that "Socialist" featured cheap synthesizers he had purchased: "Me and Wobble were really having fun fucking around with these things, whilst submerged in the mix was this huge soaring sound, rising upwards from the drum and the bass, like a whale's cry.
Later on I dubbed up the cymbals, so you have that spiralling metallic sound. Lydon called "Chant" an "old English ditty with a string synthesizer". Album closer "Radio 4" was named after the BBC radio station.
Before that, the BBC was so boring! It took until about before we had FM radio. Levene played the bassline "as if it was Wobble playing," and played a Yamaha String Ensemble to create the layered synth sounds. Tiny Vee Jay Records ended up with the contract. They released a few singles that went nowhere, and gave up. When Capitol announced their intentions to release the Meet the Beatles album in earlyVee Jay realized that they had a bunch of Beatles material sitting LP their vaults.
A lawsuit from Capitol prohibited Vee Jay from releasing any Beatles product after October,but between January and October of that year, they released Introducing the Beatles, Songs, Pictures and Stories of the Beatles a reissue of that album with a different titleThe Beatles vs.
The Beatles and Frank Ifield. The Jolly What! That album was released in February, with a cover depicting a drawing of an old man with a mustache wearing a Beatle wig.
The album sold poorly, and in October of that year, looking for a last-minute boost in sales before their rights to sell Beatles records went away, Vee Jay made some changes to the album:. The stereo pressing is one of the most valuable vinyl records sold in the U. Titled simply The Beatles, the album had a cover that was all white, though the name of the band was embossed on the cover. In addition, every copy of the album sold during its initial release was individually numbered.
Multiple copies were made in both the U. These were given to members of the group and to high-ranking record company employees. All other copies were consecutively numbered though various numbering systems were used on both U.
One would think that since every copy bears a unique number that all copies should share equal value, but collectors are particularly interested in finding copies that have low numbers. Pricing can vary dramatically for numbered copies of The Beatles depending on the number. The Beatles was sold with numbered copies in a number of different countries besides the U.
The cover and label of this particular U. Apparently, the album was originally intended to be released without the song, but it was added at the last minute and new stampers were made. First pressings of the album, issued in both mono and stereo, list no song titles anywhere on the cover.
The back cover of the album shows pictures of 25 other Vee Jay albums, but has no information about either the group or the contents of the record. About the same time, Vee Jay also released a few copies of the album that had blank white back covers. This may have been a production error.
