Pixies/Sonic Youth reissues at JB HiFi

Recommended Posts

I see JB are having a sale this weekend.  Browsing through the on line catalogue I see they have some Pixies 'Trompe le Monde' and Sonic Youth 'Goo' reissues.

 

Is anyone familiar with these?  Do they cut it?     @metal beat    @candyflip

 

Edit - Also Sigur Ros 'Kveikur'

Good question.   Honestly not sure as I own originals.😱

 

There has only been one recent reissue of The Pixies and I believe it sounds good.

 

Goo is hard to tell. Seems Euro pressing may sound better ?

 

Both great albums thou.

 

Can't comment re Sigur Ros as not a fan.

What was wrong with the originals. Both Goo and Tromp le Monde have very good engineering and production. Also, we are talking about alternative rock here - the point is angst and energy.

Decky, did you read the ops's question?

 

Absolutely nothing wrong with the original pressings. 

 

  But if you don't own them you need to find out if the reissues have been done decently or go via the laborious and probably expensive task of finding original pressings.

I have goo in the box set - think I purchased from Amazon US for just over $50 delivered. It is the remastered 4 LP from 2005.  It is superb and great value.

Haven’t heard these- sorry.

i buy almost nothing from JB so don’t know which exact pressings these are, either.

To really know without buying and listening, you’ll need more info than the JB website gives you.

Have you seen the price on disc cogs for the orange Dirty? I bought mine back in the day, should of bought more.

My biggest record buying regret was not picking up any of the first 6 sonic youth albums  that I saw at a flea market in the late 90' for $15 a piece, could of used the grocery money, kids could survive on 2 minute noodles for a while.
