    Rush ‎– A Farewell To Kings
    Label: Mercury ‎– B0022376-01, Anthem (5) ‎– B0022376-01, UMe ‎– B0022376-01
    Format: Vinyl, LP, Album, Reissue, Remastered, 200 Gram, Gatefold
    Country: USA & Canada
    Released: 21 Apr 2015

    I found an CD version of this album for sale on Discogs and couldn't resist. For now, I've got the LP, and it sounds good. A little more surface noise (even after a good cleaning) than some of the other Rush LPs in this series, but not bad.

    As an aside: I'm listening to this on my SL-1210GR with Shure V15 Type III cart with a JICO SAS/B stylus. I added a maple wood butcher block between the turntable and surface. I also added IsoAcoustic Orea Bronze isolators between the turntable and the butcher block (turntable is on my wooden desk and inches from my PC - not ideal, but I don't have a better way to set up now). The addition of the butcher block and the isolators make a small but noticeable difference.

    Less background noise, better highs (prior to the change, the highs were slightly tame and soft (is rolled-off what I'm thinking, or is it recessed?); they are much crisper and clearer without picking up any brittleness - I assume due to the changes), and the bass seems to have tightened up without losing any low end extenstion.

    Very small changes - similar to moving from a generic power strip to a PS Audio Dectet.

    Tool is one band I need to get to know better. I honestly don’t think I’ve ever heard any of their music!

    He had a couple of killer early EPs like this one and then his debut The Dance Paradox was the shit.

    Bandcamp offers their full discography for 25% off; it wasn't quite worth it for me but there are still plenty of great songs by Juniore.

    Separately, here are couple of songs, old and fairly new, which share a similar, slightly sad mood:





    Protomartyr has become a recent favorite. Some excellent songs, noteworthy lyrics:

    Bit of nostalgia for Christmas. Spike Jones and his City Slickers - Spiketaculars. Great musicians having fun.

    Started digging. Neu! is freaky. "Negativland" alone is something that will linger...

    The album is available on Tidal. I just dig the tape.
