Yes - The Yes Album

Rhino 180g Debunked


Sonic Grade: F

A Hall of Shame pressing. The worst version ever? Could be! That notorious hack Ron McMaster strikes again.

Rhino Records has really made a mockery of the analog medium. Rhino bills their releases as pressed on "180 gram High Performance Vinyl." However, if they are using performance to refer to sound quality, we take issue with their use of the word.

We found the performance of their vinyl to be quite low, lower than the average copy one might stumble upon in the used record bins.

The CD versions of most of the LP titles they released early on are far better sounding than the lifeless, flat, pinched, so-called audiophile pressings they did starting around 2000. The mastering engineer for this garbage actually has the nerve to feature his name in the ads for the records. He should be run out of town, not promoted as a keeper of the faith and defender of the virtues of "vinyl". If this is what vinyl sounds like I'd switch to CD myself.

And the amazing thing is, as bad as these records are, there are people who like them! I've read postings on the internet from people who say the sound on these records is just fine. It's sad.

Their Grateful Dead titles sound worse than the cheapest Super Saver reissue copies I have ever heard. The Yes Album sounds like a cheap cassette, a ghost of the real thing.
