Mastered from the Original Master Tapes, Pressed at RTI, and Strictly Limited to 3,000 Numbered Copies: Warm, Full Sound of Mobile Fidelity 180g Vinyl LP Breathes with Openness and Airiness
There’s definitely nothing wrong with echoing classic rock and harmonic pop sounds, especially when it’s done this well. Drops of Jupiter, Train‘s two-time Grammy-winning 2001 album, revels in sweeping hooks and soulful comfort borrowed from proven 70s methods. Remarks of jealous critics aside, the approach resonated with the public and made Train a ubiquitous presence of mainstream radio, a status the group still enjoys.
Mastered from the original master tapes, pressed at RTI, and strictly limited to 3,000 numbered copies, Mobile Fidelity’s 180g vinyl LP brings listeners much closer to the band’s roots-rock instrumentation and vocalist Pat Monahan’s smooth tonalities. Free of the harshness, boxiness, and flatness discernible on the CD, it breathes with an openness and airiness that grants the music translucent qualities. Previously restricted, dynamic headroom and instrumental separation are enlarged and enhanced. Suffice it to say that this modern classic has never sounded anywhere this good. It’s a record made for experiencing in analog, and one timeless in construction and mood.
