    Under the Pink finally gets a worthwhile 2xLP vinyl pressing via Barnes & Noble July 16th. All the other previous versions of this album squeezed the album onto one disc. I think Side 2 comes to over 30 minutes.

    A1 Pretty Good Year - 3:25
    A2 God - 3:58
    A3 Bells for Her - 5:20
    B1 Past the Mission - 4:05
    B2 Baker Baker - 3:20
    B3 The Wrong Band - 3:03
    B4 The Waitress - 3:09
    C1 Cornflake Girl - 5:06
    C2 Icicle - 5:47
    C3 Cloud on My Tongue - 4:44
    D1 Space Dog - 5:10
    D2 Yes, Anastasia - 9:33

    why don't i remember "yes, anastasia" at all? my brain just cannot fathom what that song even sounds like. i could have sworn the album ended with "space dog" \_(ツ)_/

    anyway, am i going to buy this album again to have a better quality version of it? probably...

    am i really going to buy this again?

    LOL I have like 3 copies of this album already and I'm still getting it again. It's guaranteed to not sound like total ass. Yes Anastasia is one of the best things she's ever committed to tape. It's like a mini opera. When those strings come in... Fuck.

    The last few songs kind of flow together. Great song/album.

    Inspired by the conversation in this thread, I went back and listened to my original pink-colored press of 'Under the Pink.' And you know, despite cramming so much music onto a single disc, other than it being a little too quiet and the wear and tear of time (some pops and ticks here and there) I think the record sounds pretty darn good, and honestly blows out of the water many modern 2LP presses in my collection.

    Am I still tempted since I adore this album? Of course! But I'm starting to hit storage limitations and need to start being a little pickier about what I buy. So maybe this one isn't essential for me.

    I really would want a re-issue of Boys for Pele with the original versions of the songs restored, but I'll buy this.

    If the original sounds great, then by all means you shouldn't feel obligated to splurge on another copy! I guess I should preface the vinyl complaint specifically with the Music on Vinyl repress which sounds bad, and the "remastered" reissue which somehow sounds even worse?

    I didn't notice much difference in the CD remaster over the original.

    ooh could you please expand on this? Are the vinyl versions different than what’s on streaming platforms these days?

    Unless I missed out on something, the original version of the album has been OOP on physical format since the original release. They messed with Professional Widow by replacing it with this sorta dance remix and changed Talula into the version from the Twister soundtrack. It was a really weird thing. It was only available on digital formats for a while like that too, but it seems they've restored it to the original version on Spotify.

    the pressing that came out a couple years ago seems like it has all the correct versions of the songs...
