Damnit, I've already posted three fucking reviews this week... but I really wanted to do this one.
is there a limit to how many reviews staff can post or something?
Digging: YOB - Clearing The Path To Ascend
No, there's no limit but it would suck to bump that many other staff reviews off of the front page. Especially since some staff don't post reviews all that often.
It would be interesting to hear these rereleases, the production was so bad on their stuff that it wasn't even worth listening to. Screams & Whispers was a bit better but some modern production would do wonders for their music.
Well, I bought volume 2 (the re-recording of Reason) and the production is awesome now. It's still kind of raw, but it has totally fixed the muddy sound of the original and is a lot more powerful and clear.
It looks like they also fixed the album artwork, heh.
Yeah, their artwork was always pretty bad until Screams & Whispers. I'm going to end up buying Vol. 1: Suffering Hour this weekend because I know that one could definitely benefit from the re-recording.
If you haven't heard the re-recorded versions, there is a blog on this site with two songs from the original albums and their re-recorded versions so that you can hear the difference:
