4.0 excellentEssence | July 29th 16

Love it, of course. But everyone saw that coming.

It takes a lot to look at your past work and go "this is not good enough, I'm a lot better than
this", and for someone who puts as much of himself into his records as Lunn, these albums may not
necessarily hold the same value or connection for him that they previously did, but Lunn has still
meticulously gone back over these dark horses of his discography and completely reworked

Social Disservices especially sounds a lot different, since his recording situation for that
was so miserable. What was previously a muddled, incoherent, messy album now sounds born again,
newly sinister and haunting.

Once rough gems of an otherwise consistent and excellent discography (yes, even Kentucky), new
life has been breathed into these albums - they now sound a lot more cohesive, focused, and well-
rounded. If you didn't like these albums before, definitely give them a shot now.

Recording quality is a bit shotty but still, a good recordr


3.5 greatzaruyache | August 14th 16

Both albums sound markedly better, but don't sound as good as they *should* due to the inferior
quality of their source materials. Still, that's not to say that Lunn's writing was bad, but just
that his recording resources were limited when these albums were initially recorded. Both albums
sound better than the originals, though, and that's what's important here. Marston and Morris are


4.0 excellentSuzyC | August 10th 16

'Social Disservices' clearly improved, sounds so good and terrifying.


3.5 greatXenophanes STAFF | August 10th 16

Most important one man black metal artist around (which is surprisingly a big field) drops music for the third year in a row. Great teamsters of his most looked over albums. Yadda yadda get it.


3.5 greatWillie STAFF | July 26th 16

I've never heard the original versions of the two remastered albums on this release, but they sound pretty damn good here. Excellent black metal.
