Them Crooked Vultures
"Them Crooked Vultures"

This goes into a sad collection of records that I shouldn't have bought on vinyl. Wolfmother's "Cosmic Egg" is another.
The reality is that these successful bands, signed to big labels, don't mix their album for a vinyl release, but put the same mix they release on CD out on vinyl. The result is a very compressed, thin sounding record.

The music is much more interesting and compelling than most, (thanks to the musicians in the room) but I was so distracted by the disappointing sounds coming from the record that I must officially put this album in the "Better Bought on CD" category.
