Vinyl LP - Sealed
It's been 11 years since Alkaline Trio released their first full length album, Goddamnit. In that time, they've toured the world, sold over a million records, and expanded their sound radically beyond their original straight ahead punk style, incorporating production slick enough to earn them mass exposure. Now with This Addiction, their seventh album and first for Epitaph, the Chicago rockers are heading back to their roots. "This record is a rock record but our punk rock upbringing definitely shines through, more so than our last few records," says singer/guitarist Matt Skiba. "The vibe is similar to our humble beginnings. It's a step forward but I also think it has glimmers of our past in it." To recapture the sound of the early days, the band took a less is more approach on this record, keeping the keyboard to a minimum and sticking to the guitar driven slash and burn that has made them a household name.

Vinyl records are able to capture the purest quality of recorded music in true form. This is possible because the initial recording is captured on an analog source (usually tape) for the ultimate in High Fidelity sound, it is then pressed onto virgin vinyl. Analog recordings capture the bottom end (or bass) while adding sweetness to the high end (or treble) better than any digital recording ever could. Analog systems are still commonly used before they are digitally transferred to CD. This means that the sound then is altered in the transfer process when CD's are produced. The word fidelity means accuracy and faithfulness. High Fidelity sound is faithful to the original sound made by the artist, capturing maximum accuracy of what was intended for the listener to hear. Vinyl records capture those sounds for the ultimate High Fidelity listening experience!
180/200 GRAM Vinyl LP
These vinyl records are produced with 180 or 200 grams of high definition premium grade virgin vinyl. This is a higher quality audiophile pressing than the typical vinyl record of 100-120 grams. These limited edition LP's are manufactured with the hi-fi enthusiast in mind. A 180 or 200 gram LP is sometimes also referred to as an audiophile pressing, there is a higher bass response and an even warmer High Fidelity sound. 180 or 200 grams LP's are typically manufactured in limited amounts and are considered collectables, commanding a higher price.
Typically, a vinyl reissue is a repressing of an original LP, usually extracted from the recording's master-tapes. In some cases, reissues are remastered to lower surface noise and improve overall sonics. Reissues help preserve the music of an original recording, especially when original LPs become unavailable or can no longer be found. Reissues can be pressed on a variety of thickness from 150 gram to 200 gram and offer a great opportunity for records collectors to own many classic recordings.
