Outstanding Presentation of The Sound and The Fury

Well worth the wait, mofi presents Love Is Hell in its entirety. Not all of the bonus tracks are Adams' best work; however, "Halloween," "Gimme Sunshine," and "Black Clouds" rank with some of his best work. The mix used for "Anybody Wanna Take Me Home" is not the same as the Love Is Hell CD nor Rock N' Roll; it is unique to this release (short intro and no fade out/in at the end). There are seemingly other subtle changes to the mixes, which add to this new listening experience. The title track has some noise not previously present, but that is the only flaw I noticed throughout the three records. There is a warmth and clarity one would expect from mofi. "This House Is Not For Sale," "English Girls Approximately," and "Wonderwall" are especially stunning on this pressing. If getting a low-numbered copy is important to you, I just ordered last week from this site and received #444. I've heard that some pre-ordered elsewhere over a year ago and got in the range of #2000-3000.
