Admittedly, while this album didn't jump out at me on the first couple of listens. There is a lot going on with this record...lots of layers and moods, and I can definitely see it being a slow burner. Bad News on the other hand sinks it's hooks in me from the start...what a great song.
Rise Above has started doing a US pressing for their releases...with all of them on purple vinyl. It is kind of nice of them to give those of us in the States a chance to pick up their vinyl releases without having to spend an arm and a leg on overseas shipping. So why do I look at this purple vinyl with a bit of disdain...like it is some kind of second rate Vertigo French pressing, or an Italian pressing for Neat? I hate buying them, but they are so damn convenient.
At least for this Horisont album, I can convince myself that at least the purple vinyl looks good with the album cover.
Cool looking gatefold cover, with a comic style layout for the lyrics of the title track.
500 pressed on purple vinyl.
