Hall of Shame pressing and another Half-Speed Mastered Audiophile Pressing reviewed and found wanting.

This pressing is completely lifeless. Nautilus took all the rock out of this rock and roll band.

Another ridiculous joke played on a far-too-credulous audiophile public.  

But look who’s talking? I bought plenty of Nautilus pressings in the ’70s and ’80s, some good ones, some not so good. And some of them I liked well into the 2000s. What’s my excuse?

Even as recently as, say, fifteen years ago, I still had yet to achieve much of the progress in audio I would need to achieve in order to get past the last of the audiophile pressings I still clung to.

And there’s still one that just cannot be beat, even now.

Keep in mind I had been heavily into audiophile equipment and high quality records for thirty years at that point.

Which is simply more proof that audio is hard and that your progress in audio is most likely going to be slow, the way mine was.
