    Dire Straits Expand Musical Framework And Come Into Own On Making Movies: Co-Produced By Jimmy Iovine, Thematic Album Soars With Personal Songwriting And Epic Arrangements


    Cinematic Landscapes And Intricate Passages Sound Sublime: Mobile Fidelity 45RPM 2LP Pressing Of Making Movies Mastered From Original Master Tapes, Features Audiophile Dynamics


    Bruce Springsteen Pianist Roy Bittan, Mark Knopfler's Guitar Playing, And Passionate Performances Turn Making Movies Into A Classic: Includes Romeo And Juliet, Tunnel Of Love, Solid Rock


    Making Movies marks a magnificent turning point in Dire Straits' career. Considered by many fans to be the group's most complete album, the 1980 set witnesses leader Mark Knopfler greatly expanding his songwriting palette and setting his storytelling amidst more complex, involving arrangements. Dire Straits also benefits from crucial contributions from Bruce Springsteen pianist Roy Bittan and the departure of rhythm guitarist David Knopfler. The songs spark with a mÉlange of poetry, passion, and cohesion that engages the senses and begs to be experienced again and again.


    Mastered from the original master tapes and pressed at RTI, Mobile Fidelity's 180g 45RPM 2LP set of Making Movies breathes with reference-caliber airiness, spaciousness, dynamics, and separation. Produced by Jimmy Iovine and Knopfler, the record - which contains many Springsteen-esque elements - features the cleanliness and clarity that have long been Dire Straits trademarks. The extra-wide 45RPM grooves on this edition provide previously unattainable detail, information, and soundstaging. This is what audiophile recordings are all about.


    You know you're in the presence of sonic greatness as soon as the first few seconds of the opening Tunnel of Love pass, as the introductory passage built on organ and piano - new additions to Dire Straits' palette - intertwine with the unmistakable coil-spring twang of Knopfler's guitar. The three-dimensional, full-bodied presentation of the latter instrument on this Mobile Fidelity LP is alone worth the price of admission. Crisp, rich, and balanced, the analog sound brings Knopfler's Fender Vibrolux and Music Man HD130 amplifiers into your room. The romanticism of Bittan's piano, precision timekeeping of drummer Pick Withers, and steady roll of bassist John Illsley come across with similar potency, scale, and verve.


    Always more about the whole than the sum of their individual parts, Dire Straits demonstrate that while Knopfler is the lynchpin, this record is a true band effort. Bittan's role cannot be overstated. His melodicism poetically complements Knopfler's subtle staccato rhythms and more than makes up for the exit of David Knopfler. Expansive and cinematic, the aptly titled Making Movies puts a premium on interrelated subjects (love, relationships, heartbreak) and deep-seated emotions that play out in heartfelt lyrics, intense singing, and epic frameworks. Everything clicks.


    The album's power isn't lost on Iovine, who later told Rolling Stone: The right people were in the room together. It really was making a record in the pure sense of the term. The whole thing sounds like one song. But you what that is? That's the writing, the guy who wrote it. He wrote the album like that; he wanted to make the album like that.


    Indeed, the first five tracks - Tunnel of Love, Romeo and Juliet, Skateaway, Expresso Love, Hand in Hand - comprise a mini-suite united by theme, harmony, and spirit. Every member of the newly configured Dire Straits has a say in the shaping of the material. There's not a note out of place. Iovine and Knopfler's standout production puts it over the top.

    Dire Straits (45 RPM) (Pre-Order) (On Sale)


    Dire Straits' Self-Titled 1978 Debut Distinguished By Jazz-Inflected Mix Of Folk, Blues, Country, And Rock: Guitarist Mark Knopfler Displays Uncanny Precision, Intricacy, And Texture


    Mastered From The Original Master Tapes And Pressed At RTI For Optimal Sound: Mobile Fidelity 45RPM 2LP Set Engages With Natural Tones, Superb Balances, Reference Imaging, Sterling Clarity


    Breakout Dire Straits Album Includes Sultans Of Swing And Down To The Waterline: Band's Shuffles, Boogies, And Ballads Spark With Crispness, Soulfulness, Coolness


    Dire Straits' arresting self-titled debut arrived in the midst of punk's reign but couldn't have been further removed from the era's slash-and-burn style. Recorded in West London in February 1978, the band's tasteful, jazz-inflected set embraces folk, blues, and pub rock while also tracing a direct line back to the beat-oriented sound of early rock n' roll. Country and roots accents further distinguish the British quartet's stripped-down music from any 1970s peers, as does the transparent production, which has remained revered among audiophiles the world over - and which has never been better than on this meticulous analog pressing.


    Mastered from the original master tapes and pressed at RTI, Mobile Fidelity's 180g 45RPM 2LP version of Dire Straits features natural tonalities, superb balances, you-are-there imaging, deep-black backgrounds, and pristine clarity. Even if you've heard this album hundreds of times before, you've never experienced it with such lifelike sonics and premium richness. This numbered, limited-edition collector's set immerses you within the smoky, laidback atmospherics of every song. This is how all vinyl should sound.


    Crucial to every arrangement, Mark Knopfler's winding guitar lines emerge with supreme transparency and multi-hued textural detail. His intricate playing comes across as if it's being transmitted via his 60s-era Fender Vibrolux amplifier placed right before you. The cleanliness, dimensions, and live feel are that good. His bandmates, too, benefit from the extra groove space afforded by this 45RPM edition. Rhythms skate and swirl; percussive effects resonate with crispness and attack; the leading edges of notes naturally decay.


    Dire Straits' strong, well-edited batch of original material further enhances the overall enjoyment and makes the record one whose pleasures go far beyond the organic sonics. Just as Knopfler's narratives pour forth with poetic and surrealist texts, the musical settings - an intoxicating combination of easygoing shuffles, back-hall boogies, and pop-honed ballads - mirror the old-fashioned soulfulness inherent in the classic recordings of the late 50s and early 60s. The lyrics are equally captivating.


    Drawing from his time as a youth in Newcastle, Leeds, and London, Knopfler invests tunes with an autobiographical slant and emotional connectivity that become obvious the moment he opens his mouth to sing. Down to the Waterline, Wild West End, and Lions all feature colloquial touches that add to their reach. By extension, In the Gallery functions as a tribute to Leeds sculptor Harry Phillips (father of future Knoplfer collaborator, Steve Phillips) while the record's breakout smash, Sultans of Swing, pays homage to struggling bar bands.


    Through it all, Dire Straits performs with a subtle cool and clever poise that no band ever matched. Just how good is the chemistry? Bob Dylan heard the quartet and invited Knopfler and drummer Pick Withers to play on Slow Train Coming. But even Dylan himself didn't hear Dire Straits sound this magnetic back in its original heyday. Now, everyone can.

    Over 3.2 million albums sold. Out of print on vinyl for over 20 years. Reached #1 on UK charts and #18 on Billboard200. Mastered from the original tapes and pressed/plated at RTI. Includes hit single "Dreams". 180-gram LP, housed in a Stoughton old style tip-on jacket.

    Their first full-length shows a band fully formed, with faint debts to the Sundays and the Smiths, but turning out more-than-tuneful pop behind the gorgeous lilt of Dolores O'Riordan. Dreams and Linger both seem to weave magic spells that remain even after the tracks pass, and there is a glorious freshness to the performances that's impossible to resist. It remains their most satisfying outing. -Chris Nickson

    Reissued For The First Time On Vinyl Since It's Original Release


    Cut From The Original Stereo Tapes By Ryan Smith At Sterling Sound


    First Stereo Recording Of Ethel Merman Recorded At The Legendary Columbia 30th Street Studios


    Grammy Award Winner For Best Original Cast Show Album And Widely Considered The Greatest American Musical


    Pressed And Plated At RTI On 180-Gram Vinyl


    Housed In A Stoughton Old Style "Tip-On" Jacket


    With a percussive score by Jule Styne, and solidly crafted lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, Gypsy stands out arguably as one of the two most perfect musicals ever created (the other one being Guys And Dolls). Over the years, it has been revived frequently, but Ethel Merman's larger-than-life portrayal remains the standard by which all others have to measure up. This was the first stereo recording of Merman, produced by legendary Broadway cast recording producer Goddard Lieberson and recorded at Columbia 30th Street Studios.


    This is the first vinyl reissue of this album cut from the original stereo master tapes by Ryan K. Smith at Sterling Sound and pressed and plated at RTI. 180-gram vinyl housed in a Stoughton old style "tip-on" jacket.

    One Night Stand: Live at the Harlem Square is the second live album by the American singer-songwriter Sam Cooke. The album was originally released in June 1985 in the United States by RCA Records. Initially recorded in 1963 to be released as a live album entitled One Night Stand, the concert at the Harlem Square club (in Miami's historically African American neighborhood of Overtown) was not released until 1985. RCA Victor, at the time, viewed the album as too gritty and raw and possibly damaging to his pop image, and quietly kept the recordings in their archive.


    The album is generally considered among the best live albums by contemporary music critics, and has been ranked in best-of music lists, including on Rolling Stone's list of The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.

    Planet Waves (On Sale)


    Chart-Topping 1974 Record Reunites Dylan With the Band: Interplay Alone Worth Experiencing Set in Highest-Possible Fidelity


    Mastered from the Original Master Tapes: Mobile Fidelity Version Brings Underrated Gem to Fullest Light With Warm, Revealing Sound


    Edgy Personal Album Captures Legendary Artist Straddling Line Between Romance and Suspicion: Includes Beloved Favorites "Forever Young" and "You Angel You"


    Bob Dylan's Planet Waves became an event even before the album was released and revealed itself as an understated masterwork. His first studio recording in nearly four years, the homespun 1974 effort finds him reuniting with the Band, by then firmly established as virtuosos. The chemistry is obvious on every song. And the modest and spare production only magnifies the honesty and purity of the collaboration. Mobile Fidelity's 180g LP deepens the music's emotional connection and rustic warmth to the fullest possible extent.


    Mastered from the original master tapes, this collectable audiophile edition brings to the surface the communal interplay and warm, relaxed vibe established by Dylan and the Band. Listeners will finally sense the sensitive tones made possible by the ensemble's laidback nature and watertight playing. The deep body of Richard Manuel's piano, pinpoint decay of Garth Hudson's organ, and clarity of Dylan's vocals emerge with new perspective. As a result, Planet Waves leaps from the background of Dylan's catalog into the fore, the revelatory sonics helping earn the record serious consideration as one of the Bard's finest.


    Recorded in just three days time, Planet Waves is at its core an exhibition of the inimitable folk-rock honed by Dylan and the Band. Recalling the Americana spirit of The Basement Tapes while adding a domesticated edginess and subtracting a degree of wildness, the set personifies simple charm and scraggly sweetness. Couched in the context of Dylan grappling with the chasm between family life and the road, Planet Waves fittingly encompasses myriad moods and contradictions, with tunes ranging from unquestionably devotional to overtly dark. In between, the singer attempts to navigate peace, catharsis, and resolve.


    Per Dylan's hallmark, many tunes on Planet Waves involve twists and subterfuge. Not, however, the best-known offerings-the often-covered wish "Forever Young," celebratory roll-and-tumble "On a Night Like This," devotional "You Angel You," which spark with love, romance, and prayer-like tenderness. Yet the seeds that blossomed into 1975's traumatic break-up album Blood on the Tracks are also planted here. Complex feelings and deep-seated personal confusion surface on "Wedding Song," the hardscrabble "Tough Mama," piano-centered "Dirge," and knocking-on-heaven's-door darkness of "Going, Going, Gone."


    Throughout, Dylan's voice supplies subtle hints about his mindset and intent as the Band shadows him step for step, adding to the thematic ambivalence and contributing to a debate over meaning that continues today. Indeed, such relevance confirms the significance of Planet Waves 40 years after its original release. Mobile Fidelity's analog version digs beneath the surface and helps expose the record's buried strains.

    Winner Of Six Tony Awards Including Best Musical


    Pressed And Plated At RTI On 180-Gram Vinyl


    Housed In A Stoughton Old Style "Tip-On" Jacket


    A biting satire of contemporary lifestyles, Company marked the emergence of Stephen Sondheim as the premier composer-lyricist of his generation. The success of the show, which opened on April 26, 1970 and enjoyed a run of 690 performances, spawned countless imitations of one form or another, and paved the way for the greater realism expressed in musicals since. It also established a creative relationship between Sondheim and producer-director Harold Prince that culminated in some of the best works seen on Broadway in the ensuing years.


    This is the first vinyl reissue of this album cut from the original stereo master tapes by Ryan K. Smith at Sterling Sound and pressed and plated at RTI. 180-gram vinyl housed in a Stoughton old style "tip-on" jacket.

    Housed In A Stoughton Old Style "Tip-On" Jacket


    Winner Of Ten Tony Awards Including Best Musical As Well As The Pulitzer Prize


    For their fourth work together, Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II wrote one of the great musicals in Broadway's history, South Pacific. The musical opened on April 7, 1949 at the Majestic Theatre, and enjoyed one of the longest runs on Broadway up to that time (1,925 performances); it deservedly won the Pulitzer Prize, along with a plethora of Tony Awards®. Upon its release, the original Broadway cast recording became the longest running number one record in history. The legendary recording features Mary Martin and Ezio Pinza, was produced by Goddard Lieberson and recorded at the historic Columbia 30th Street studios. Interestingly, the album was released at a time when record formats were evolving. South Pacific, as a result, became responsible more than any other single recording for converting the record buying public over to the new 12" LP format.


    This is the first vinyl reissue of this album cut from the original mono tapes by Ryan K. Smith at Sterling Sound, pressed and plated at RTI on 180-gram vinyl and housed in a Stoughton old style "tip-on" jacket.

    At Best Cuckold

    Embarking upon a sophomore effort can be a daunting task for any young upstart, and there's no denying Avi Buffalo's own bar was set quite high with 2010's celebrated eponymous debut. Fear not, there's nothing in this tale about The Second Album-a.k.a. At Best Cuckold, due September 8th in Europe and September 9th in North America on Sub
    Pop-that even remotely resembles a slump; in fact, it would be entirely appropriate to say that this Long Beach, California, enterprise is getting better with age.


    Ah, yes, age-much was made of it when Avi Buffalo's first album hit, and for good reason: While their Millikan High School classmates were preoccupied with quaint and youthful pursuits, the musicians behind Avi Buffalo were busy making an off-kilter pop gem that eventually bowled over NME, The AV Club, Pitchfork, the BBC, and numerous other outlets on both sides of the Atlantic.


    The creation of At Best Cuckold turned out to be a three-year journey; a stretch of time that resembles its predecessor. While transitioning from teenager to twentysomething and traversing the interpersonal wilds which accompany that age, Avi kept playing music, collaborated with and produced several friends (including Kevin Litrow's N.O.W. project and
    Douglas James Sweeney's Arjuna Genome), and even started DJing. He also wrote new songs, and by the time 2013 rolled around, it was time to begin capturing his latest sparks-with that, the band headed into the studio on New Year's Day.


    At Best Cuckold was recorded at Tiny Telephone, the analog-friendly San Francisco studio run by John Vanderslice (whose Bowie tribute Avi contributed to), and engineered by Jay Pellicci (The Dodos, Deerhoof, Sleater-Kinney). Avi then built on the "clean and tight" recordings from Tiny Telephone with analog and digital overdubs, and completed the
    record with Nicolas Vernhes at Rare Book Room studio in Brooklyn. The result is a quirky yet comforting set of songs driven by refined pop songcraft and sneaky moments of grandeur that stick in the brain. Classic-sounding melodies are delivered with a modern sensibility, creating an album that's equal parts timely and timeless. Well-placed piano, sax, clarinet, French horn, and cornet further enhance the proceedings with a glorious orch-pop sheen.


    At the ripe old age of 23, Avi Buffalo is ready to take on the world (again), armed with all of the experience he's compiled over the past few years. And he's made sure the second time around will be just as memorable as the first.

    Bonnie & Mariee (Discontinued) (On Sale)

    As great things often do, these sessions started with a simple conceptual challenge. In this case, it was the brainchild of Bonnie Prince Billy, after being asked by Spiritual Pajamas co-founder Britt Govea if he had interest in singing a song with Mariee Sioux at some point in the future. The idea has given birth to this wonderful collection of tunes.


    Bonnie offers a stunning original and Mariee returns the favor with her own equally beautiful song. After these two were recorded, the fun and productivity simply could not be contained and additional cover songs were put to tape by analog recording master Jonathan Wilson to round out this legendary session.


    These wonderful recordings feature a dream band of musicians: Paz (A Perfect Circle, Zwan and The Entrance Band) on bass, Nate Walcott (Bright Eyes) on keys, Jonathan Wilson on guitar and percussion, Farmer Dave Scher (Beachwood Sparks and Jenny Lewis) on slide and additional keys, Derek James (The Entrance Band) on drums and Dave Brennen (Dirt Blue Gene & Hope Sandoval and The Warm Inventions) and Emmett Kelly (The Cairo Gang) on additional guitars.


    Flowering tongues, love skulls, whales trapped in ice, be thou not deceived and touch yourself a hundred times. These songs carve a place in your heart and tattoo your brain for ages to come.


    This very limited edition double gatefold 7 vinyl release from Spiritual Pajamas is a must hear for fans of Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, Mariee Sioux, and for all fans of finely recorded and performed music. Leave your shape behind, because when the avalanche slips off of your face the circle will close, God is not mockedBonnie & Mariee!

    Insides

    Like many others, Ghostly became enamored with Fort Romeau's idea of slow
    listening, the concept of enriching relationships with music through careful
    attention and focus. His understated take on deep, groove-friendly house started
    pushing this practice three years ago, when the producer's debut LP, Kingdoms,
    appeared via 100% Silk. The native Londoner, born Mike Greene, has evolved
    considerably since then, finessing his sound over the course of three breezy 12s,
    one EP, and lengthy DJ sets at some of the best clubs in Europe-not the least of
    which were Berlin's famed Panorama Bar, London hotspot Plastic People, and
    Robert Johnson in Frankfurt. Those years Greene spent immersed in his craft and
    new inspirations have generously informed the eight stunning productions which
    comprise Insides, Fort Romeau's long-awaited sophomore album.


    Playing in those clubs definitely had an affect on how I approach composition and
    pacing, Greene shares. I want to allow things to breathe and develop gradually
    over longer track lengths, rather than cram everything into four or five minutes. His
    patient methods are a central component to the billowy house music on Insides,
    though this isn't an indulgent album of gratuitous buildups and tiresome
    breakdowns. Each production is pointed and purposeful, as the artist crafts every
    second of analog electronics with rich detail, nuance, and refinement.


    Throughout Insides, Fort Romeau guides us down misty corridors lined with supple
    synth pads, quietly thumping kicks, and elastic low-end sequences reinforced by an
    emotive confidence. Thick dancefloor cuts like All I Want and Folle are built on
    such satisfying elements-sounds so full-bodied, you'd swear they're knocking
    against your bones. This, too, is by design. I wanted to make sure all the songs
    have a tangible quality, says Greene of his LP's physicality, to make texture and
    grain become as important a part of the vocabulary as timbre and pitch. This was
    accomplished with an arsenal of machines, including his Moog Voyager, Yamaha
    DX7, Roland Juno-6, and Korg 770, a vintage synth he describes as having so much
    presence and vitality, it almost feels like it's alive. Equally important to the weighty
    presence of his music is meticulous post-production. The record was mixed on an
    analog desk and mastered to tape, Fort Romeau elaborates. These processes are
    as much a part of the sound as the synths and sample sources themselves.


    There is also a deep stylistic eclecticism to Insides, and coming from Greene, this
    was galvanized by deep cuts he discovered while digging to find music for his
    extensive DJ sets. Old kosmiche, disco, and early electronic records are among the
    strongest influences, and Fort Romeau used them as an impetus for creation. It's
    those strange and wonderful tracks that you find on the b-side of an old record that
    sparked my desire to make something new, he shares, but it's very important for
    me never to feel like I'm making a pastiche. Indeed, the sleek expanse of Lately
    and the title track's jacking grooves take cues from buoyantly cosmic dance music.
    And yet it's the personality of a young artist coming into his own that makes Insides
    such a graceful collection of house music, one that only further enriches the soul
    over time.

    Rides Again (Pre-Order) (On Sale)


    The Joe Walsh-Led James Gang Balances Edgy Hard Rock and Sincere Country-Tinged Ballads on 1970 Classic: Rides Again Features the Radio Favorite Funk #49 and Multi-Part Bomber


    Mastered from the Original Master Tapes, Pressed at RTI, and Strictly Limited to 4000 Numbered Copies: Mobile Fidelity 180g Vinyl LP of Rides Again Presents James Gang in Full-Scale Detail


    Led by future Eagle Joe Walsh, the James Gang establishes a power-trio template for all times on its 1970 sophomore album. Home to the top-down favorite Funk #49, Rides Again sparks with a stylistic versatility, hard-rocking edge, and balladic vulnerability united by tight-knit musicianship. The quartet's penchant for crunch-laden boogies and focused jamming pours out on the first half of the record before the band pulls its trick bag out on the second half and injects keyboards into the stylistically varied mix. From start to finish, Rides Again is a 70s rock classic - and, now, one that at last features first-rate sonics to match the music.


    Recorded at the then-brand-new Record Plant, the songs sound more authoritative and fun than ever before on Mobile Fidelity's restored analog pressing. Mastered from the original analog tapes, pressed at RTI, and strictly limited to 4000 numbered copies, this 180g LP teems with involving textures, details, and depth hidden from view on prior pressings. The dimensional body and weight of the guitars, probing low-end of Dale Peters' bass lines, reedy timbre of Walsh's singing, and pacing of the crisp percussive cues are all enhanced. Increased separation between the instruments and airier, more open soundstaging add to the record's toe-tapping fun and seemingly unlimited groove quotient.


    Walsh, without question, remains the biggest draw on Rides Again. The FM radio staple Funk #49 - kick-started by the irresistible declaration I sleep all day, out all night/I know where you're goin' - continues to be identified by many as a Walsh solo tune. Yet it, as well as the sexual thrust of the head-bobbing Woman and proto-metal slash of the multi-part The Bomber, fully represents the pure chemistry and locomotive momentum of the James Gang. With Walsh's Echoplex-equipped slide guitar making psychedelic- and blues-leaning comments, his mates pick up on the direction and answer with melodic responses.


    Throughout the record, the trio's synergy clicks at every turn. Such interplay extends to the more diverse, country-tinged fare on Side B. Streaked with throaty organ passages and reflective moods, sincere midtempo ballads like Tend My Garden tease with rave-up structures and express a softer side of the group. Similarly, the acoustic-based Garden Gate and Jack Nitzsche-orchestrated Ashes the Rain and I showcase sincerity and diversity suggesting the James Gang prepared to defy limitations afforded most of its peers.


    Yet Walsh's departure in 1971 changed the group's fortunes - and, by extension, upped the value of Rides Again, which survives as a near-flawless example of earnest 70s rock and organic playing.

    The Pixies Trompe Le Monde On Numbered Limited Edition 180g LP From Mobile Fidelity


    Pixies Swan Song Sparks With Electrically Charged Hooks, Outer-Space Atmospherics, And Eminent Tunefulness



    Mastered From The Original Master Tapes: Restoration Turns 1991 Album Into A Sonic Blockbuster


    Frank Black-led Set Includes Contagious Cover Of The Jesus And Mary Chain's "Head On"


    The Pixies verged on commercial breakthrough when the now-iconic band released Trompe le Monde in September 1991. A sea change in popular music tastes that the band helped initiate began to sweep the world. And the Boston quartet seemed prepared to lead the way, with this, its eminently tuneful fourth record, jam-packed with crafty hooks, prickly tones, catchy elements, outer-space atmospherics, electrically charged energy, and delightfully quirky lyrics.


    As it stands, Trompe le Monde takes its place as one of the finest swan songs ever recorded. If the Pixies wouldn't have broken up right after its release, there's no telling what would've happened. All that you need to know is that the 15-track effort is as hard rocking and brilliantly innovative as any of the group's creations. That's no small feat.


    Mastered from the original analog tapes and pressed at RTI, Mobile Fidelity's numbered limited edition 180g LP presents the ensemble's abrasively melodic landmark in a fidelity it's never enjoyed in any prior version. Featuring lusher keyboards and moodier soundscapes than its predecessors, but also reclaiming the nasty guitar edginess and swooning distortion of the group's earliest efforts, Trompe de la Monde finally comes across as the Pixies intended: A sonic bridge between college-rock's influential cruder-textured albums and the polished professionalism that distinguished alt-rock classics.


    In other words, Mobile Fidelity's version presents it as the perfect-sounding album: Replete with grit, rawness, and character, but mixed in with radio-friendly smoothness and virtuosic professionalism. Awash with incredible timbres and tonalities, myriad new details rise to the surface. Listen to the counterpoint melodies and layered vocals on "Letter to Memphis"; the trash-compactor feedback and thumping bass during the whipsawing "Planet of Sound"; the "Spyhunter"-like pace and limitless depth now present on "Subbacultcha." Dynamics, contrasts, low-end frequencies, and imaging are all significantly enhanced. Compared to the original CD, Trompe le Monde emerges as a new album-a sonic wonderland that's not far removed from that of Nirvana's celebrated blockbuster Nevermind.


    Musically, the Pixies were never better. On par with the groundbreaking Surfer Rosa and Doolittle, Trompe le Monde explodes with hyper riffs, jerks to stop-start progressions, elates with cheerful emotions, and bangs on to giddy surf-fused arrangements. With Kim Deal absent from the songwriting process, vocalist/guitarist Frank Black takes the reigns and doesn't disappoint. Tales about sea monkeys ("Palace of the Brine"), aliens ("Planet of Sound"), and love ("The Sad Punk") bop alongside memorable jabs at hipster pretensions ("Subbacultcha") and inflated egos ("U-Mass"). A contagious cover of the Jesus and Mary Chain's "Head On" will have you hitting "repeat." Power pop, wanderlust punk, theatrical glam rock, reconfigured reverb-laden country-all here, all encouraging repeat listens.


    Nearly lost due amidst the alternative trend that it played such a key role in spawning, Trompe le Monde gets new life courtesy of this extremely punchy, greatly balanced Mobile Fidelity issue. If you missed it the first time, don't make that mistake again. Essential with a capital "E," and the perfect way to close Mobile Fidelity's Pixies catalog restoration series.
