My copy plays quietly I just re-checked the deadwax, and I just found a very faint United Record signature along with the matrix, which is the same on the Back To Black release processed by Optimal.
This explains why this is such an awful pressing. VinylandKicks86 April 21, Report. I hope the european Back to Black reissue has better quality control. Reply Notify me 2 Helpful. It is quite a crackly sounding pressing. But, I actually enjoy the "old record" vibe it brings.
The songs are exquisite, odd at times, soothing at others. The first and title track rolls out some very intricate chords within an irregular time signature, however maintaining a regular flow when coupled with Nicks whispered voice. A simple but effective piano solo creeps in the middle, making it perhaps the most polished song in the album.
This whispered and earthy voice is maintained throughout the album, and the manner in which he intertwines it with some delicate guitar playing is what makes it one of my favourite albums of all time "Which Will" is a great example of this. The lyrical content also manages to adhere to the organic and natural aesthetic while also delving into his internal anguish and loneliness that blighted him throughout most of his adult life.
In "Place to be" he describes how he was once "strong in the sun" but is now "paler than the weakest blue", placing us listeners into his deeply troubled mind, that he claims was once more wholesome and contented. By the last track of the album "From the Morning", the dust settles and his inner pain finally subsides, as if it was a darkness that was endured to truly appreciate the blossoming sunlight.
With lyrics like "And now we rise, and we are everywhere, And now we rise from the ground" creates this transcendent atmosphere, where depression and inner existential musings are washed away by a great swooning force that opens up the hearts of all it engulfs. I believe the words "see she flies, she is everywhere" is him referring to a Gaia-like entity that is responsible for this cleansing "force".
Pink Moon uncompromisingly strips virtually everything away leaving his voice and guitar however there is a very perfectly placed piano part in the title track , and what results is a beautiful duet for a brief but perfectly constructed thirty minutes. Anyone know if there is a way to tell if this is a reissue or possibly an original?
