On their third album, the War on Drugs essentially continue to stake out their own particular patch of ground in 21st century rock & roll with an indie bent, nodding in equal parts toward older traditions and newer ones with a difference of two decades in between them, captured right down to the cover art, which is pretty much a companion piece to

  • Zinnthi
I thought this pressing sounded excellent to be honest. Would def recommend
  • Prince Persie
Why the hell did they do this at 45 RPM? To be annoying? To stand out? It's stupid.
  • Nahn
This is the least essential piece of The War on Drugs' catalog, and to make matters worse, the pressing is poor. Secretly Canadian is pretty reliable, but this is a miss. And better versions of many of these songs can be found on the Future Weather EP (although you might want to be careful with that pressing as well). Thankfully, the rest of the band's LPs sound terrific on vinyl.
  • JoJoshura
I'm really pleased with the way this vinyl sounds actually. I'm reading some complaints about the "muddiness" or perceived lack of clarity in the music... I suspect the artist was going for a slight spacey, hazy, atmospheric vibe here... I believe the pressing is accurate to the production intent. It's also telling that this plays at 45RPM-- the sound quality is meant to be emphasized here, otherwise why they bother spreading out a 47-minute album over two records? The only issue I encountered was the needle jumps right out of the run-out groove onto the center label on side C! Never had that happen before.
  • Inerrace
I bought my copy from the band at a gig when they were touring for "Lost in the Dream". I have had it for a couple of years and finally played it for the first time today. (I did a 24/96 recording of it) I also have the CD copy and have listened to that many times. I find my copy of this LP to sound very nice. Some of the complaints below lead me to think a few may not appreciate the different style this band has. I think the mix is correct for this album, with the vocals placed exactly how they want them to be. My copy is not off-center or warped and it sounds great. If you are thinking of picking up this 2 LP 45 RPM pressing I am going to encourage you to do so. I will admit to believing it is possible that some people got poor copies. I just want to say they are not all bad, as my copy is fine.
  • Winn
To say this pressing is "bad" is not accurate. My version is unlistenable. I mean every song on my records as well. It sounds like it is being played with a weight sitting on the record making it play in slow motion. I really wish I could find a half way decent version.
  • betelgeuze
Play it at the correct speed then listen to how it sounds. It's a 45. C'mon people.
  • Vutaur
I have to add my dissapointment with this LP, not the music, but the pressing. I had to send back the first copy because it was off center and warped (most notably on disc 1). I recieved a 2nd copy and it's the exact same issue.
  • Dolid
My copy sounds really really bad! No joy in listening to it, despite the fact that it is an amazing album.I prefer the digital version.
  • Aloo
I like this album a lot. I still prefer Lost in the Dream, which is a modern classic in my opinion, but Slave Ambient is a quality piece of modern rock.There's nothing wrong with my pressing, in fact it sounds great! But, I can understand other reviewers thoughts on the mix as it does set the vocal back within the sound stage.
  • fr0mTheSkY
I'd probably give this album 3/5 stars. At first it's quite good, but if you listen to more than three tracks at a time, they all run together. Every song sounds the same.The vocals are mixed pretty low and the singing is rather incoherent. That tells me he isn't confident enough in the lyrics to sing and mix them clearly.
  • Fomand
Got a defective record as well. I contacted Secretly Canadian and they had another one in the mail in like 12 hours. To be fair to them, this is the first defective vinyl I've ever experienced. Remember when Vespertine shipped with flaws in all the discs?
  • Beazerdred
This has got to be in the top 5 worst modern vinyl pressings I've had the misfortune of hearing. Avoid. Yes, it's off center. But in addition, mastering is poor, vocals are recessed, many primary instrumental parts are nearly inaudible... it's a mess. So bad I thought my cantilever had been damaged. A shame because it's a great record. Don't get how Secretly Canadian can be ok putting trash out into the market.
  • Fountain_tenderness
My copy sounds great, sorry to hear that some are less than happy with it.
  • caif
The sound on this pressing is horrible. It's all compressed and muddy. Can't even listen to it.
  • Andromakus
Yup, my first copy of Lost in the Dream was pressed off center, had to buy another one. My copy of Slave Ambient is fairly warped. Get your shit together Secretly Canadian and use better pressing plants.
  • grand star
Sounds great but is pressed off center. I'm on my third copy and all of them have my tonearm swaying madly back and forth a half inch in each direction. Great album and the sound quality is there for sure, just a shame about the careless press operator.
Sounds great
  • Galanjov
Mine is off center and warped. It sounds okay, considering.
  • Kanrad
War On Drugs may like to paint themselves into a corner, viewing themselves as some sort of down and out neo-psychedelic, dream-pop losers, stoned on really good weed, washing exotic textures that swirl like smoke from the stage out across the upturned faces, settling on and laying waste to those at the back of the room, while raising the temperature ‘til everyone is moving as one ... leaving you with nothing to do but hold your breath, slip to the bottom of the pool, then push yourself back to the surface just long enough to gain a breath of pure air before you smile, surrender to the dancing waters, and float off into the night sky.The album’s layered with songs filled with shifting murkiness, and drenched with a dose of low hanging atmospheric clouds that at times will sound more than vaguely familiar, though placing this vague sensation will spin your head around, and by the time you’ve had the thought it’s gone, swept up through the ceiling, leaving you standing in awe as one song rolls relentlessly into another creating a hazy jam of sheer delight ... a stoner’s dreams come true.Or I could just say that the band’s from Philadelphia, play all the clubs that exist in the magical world of sparks below the elevated trolly line, playing to the converted, and those seeking the divine light of inspiration.***Don't go thinking there's anything wrong with your turntable as you drop these gems onto the platter, they were stunningly recorded at 45 rpms.
  • MilsoN
This album is really good,unfortunately it sounds like crap.prob bad mastering.
  • SupperDom
Agreed. Sounds like it was mastered from a cd.
