    Bagged Break's Resistance yesterday and noticed after playing Martyr, that just before the breakdown it loops over and over again. A mate of mine said that this happened to him as well, but i just put that down to a pressing error, but seems it has happened to mine. Anyone know how if there is a way to fix this (probably not)? Or just email Symmetry or something? :S

    inspect the record first!
    can u see a blemish or scratch there?
    have u tried cleaning it?

    i have had records that do this when using a poor quality stylus but work fine using a better one.

    Just tested and mine plays fine. However I don't like the mastering on Resistance. Some of the eq levels seem too high and they seem to have substituted clarity for noise. Maybe that's why the needle's jumping out of the groove

    I'm pissed off about mine, a massive chunk has come out of the Don't Look Down record, and it skips just before the drop. Haven't played Martyr in a while but don't remember any problems..

    Yup, the chunk that came out didn't actually affect the playback of the tune so I dealt with it, but it's now fucked. Really tried to look after it well but it seems it doesn't want to be played.

    What the fuck are you on about?

    Slow Down? Too Much? Salvage? Conference Call? All fucking incredible tunes. The whole LP is essential. Not many albums nowadays are made like that

    Yeah I was referring to the vinyl mastering. Sounds worse than the CD even using shure whitelabels.

    Return to the Temple EP also sounds awful on vinyl. Both mastered by Beau. Maybe I'm being overly critical.

    It definitely haven't anything to do with that! The CD's are on most Albums at the moment which are distributed over St Holdings. Even If LP, Mosaic Vol.1 LP etc.

    I have no problems whatsoever with the Vinyl. All are sounding great. Mastering is nicely done... IMO

    Beau is the best masterer in the game so it wont be because of that
