Finally as the highly anticipated release of Panic! At The Disco‘s latest album Death Of A Bachelor was pressed into record form, luckily I received it just a day after it was acquainted to the world, I thought after multiple listened on my record player, it is the appropriate time to review and essentially identify the difference in terms of sound quality between the digital version of this wonderful album, and the record version.
So, the long await was over ever since January when Panic! finally announced a record/vinyl pressing of Death Of A Bachelor, which naturally I ordered immediately and received straight away the next day which was extremely exciting.
Eventually, after a couple of listened to the entire record, it is true what people say that music sounds so much better through a record. On my record player, the crisp crackling when placing the needle onto the record itself defiantly distinguish this ever long median of music in comparison to other formats such as cd and digital download.
In terms of the sound quality, and what songs suited being played through a record compared to digital, the sound on a record player from my point of view is much more enjoyable, comforting and relaxing. Even songs such as “Emperors New Clothes” and “Victorious” which from the album are clearly the more uptempo powerful tracks, even on record they are still done as much justice as digitally.
The selection of sons from the track listing of the album that sound faultless on record for me are the title track “Death Of A Bachelor”, “LA Devotee” and “Impossible Year”. Unquestionably a picking off the more down tempo, steady songs however this hugely helped to enhance Brendon’s pure vocals further. Accompanied by the instrumentals such as the elegant, aesthetic piano piece in “Impossible Year” really doing this recent album justice and giving it the credit it deserves even through record.
Do any of you people out there have a record player? If so have you gladly purchased Death Of A Bachelor by Panic! At The Disco on record. Let me know in the comments section below.
