Editorial Reviews

This limited edition LP is pressed on 180 gram vinyl and includes specially-compiled liner notes from Bob Mould as well as David Barbe (Sugar), Ben Gibbard (Death Cab For Cutie), Samuel Fogarino (Interpol), Paul Banks (Interpol), and Lou Giordano (co-producer/engineer). The critics lauded the album and to this day their top-ten lists are packed with bands who would never have gotten there unless there was Mould and his Sugar.

I was looking forward to this reissue for several weeks. I was severely disappointed at the quality of the remastering. For starters, "The Act We Act" isn't even at the right speed (it's slightly slower than the original CD release), AND the song is distorted, leaving me to believe that it was pressed too loudly to the vinyl. But all of the songs suffer from bad vinyl mastering. You can't hear the acoustic guitars very well alongside the electrics in "Helpless"; "A Good Idea"/"Changes" just sounds plain bad. This is one of my favorite records of all time, and its a shame that my 20-year old CD sounds better than this. Side 2 is more of the same.

Incidentally, it comes with a free download. You get both the WAV and MP3 files. I listened to the wav's, and they sound significantly better than the LP, but not quite as good as the original 1992 CD. The drums are overly compressed (the snare is slightly distorted in some spots and the cymbals don't sound quite right). However, the guitars sound a little "bigger".

The other problem with the MP3s and WAv files is that the segue between "Fortune Teller" and "Slick" on the MP3s is awkward in the way it was cut. The train effect is both at the end of "Fortune Teller" and the beginning of "Slick". Essentially, the train is supposed to slow down at the end of "Fortune Teller", then pick up speed and segue into "Slick". What happens is the train slows down, picks up, then there's a click as it switches tracks, then the train slows down again, picks up speed, and then goes into "Slick". Seriously, did anyone at Ryko listen to this before releasing it?

For comparison, I bought the new Foo Fighters record (which also comes with a download). I would call myself a casual Foo Fighters fan, but a HUGE Sugar fan.

Easily one of the best albums to come out of the 90's. It's pretty much perfection from start to finish. It doesn't get much better than this. They did a great job with this re-press as it sounds fantastic and the updated liner notes are nice.

Excellent music. And if you have a copy that plays, it will be excellent. But I have now had to reorder four copies to get one that is not warped or has skips.

"Celebrated Summer" from NEW DAY RISING
"I Apologize" from NEW DAY RISING
"Who Hangs Behind Your Eyes" by Mercyland, from a forthcoming single

LIFE BEFORE SUGAR is about 53 minutes.
