ALBUM REVIEW: Asphyx "The Rack" Century Media Vinyl Re-Issue

A classic album on a classic format! The packaging is quite nice, with the clear vinyl feeling quite deluxe, leaving my barbarian hands trembling with the glorious gem held aloft, then plunged violently onto the rack... er, record player.
At least, my listening to this re-issue was a BIT like that. So what about sound quality? Quite good! The guitar stays forefront but all the tracks on each song are clear and well-balanced. I was at first somewhat displeased that it wasn't all soupy guitar and vocal bark, but hearing the bass shine through was quite nice. Mind you, none of the dirt has been removed, only separated and cataloged, so you can place each pile into its respective grave.
Keep up the high-quality re-issues Century Media!
