Hello, amigo. I really don't like your blog to be honest. You seem so arrogant in your answers, and the ripping or bitrate is so bad. I think you should do a favour to yourself and to us, and just shut it down!
I don't suppose you really have the guts to publish my comment...

if you don't like it amigo...do not come here...no one invited you,you choose to be here....i don't go to places i don't like,if you do...then you got a biiiiiiig problem...and me and people here are not obliged to make your problem ours....all the best

Over The Moon said...

That guy is an ass, Mutant Sounds. Plus [surprise!] he's Anonymous! Pay no attention, just keep up the great work and sharing here. You are an incredibly generous person.

All kind regards...

Beaker said...

in all fairness, is there a reason the bitrate is generally kept so low?
i think the site is great, and i'd listen to this stuff coming out of a broken tuba, but

Over The Moon said...

A lot of the bit rates here are 200+ -- that's low? C'mon -- at least be fair!

FM SHADES said...

I sure mr.mutantsoundz would like all the posts to be as high bitrate mp3 as possible. All us blogger's are usually sourcing material from other underground music sources, be it Soulseek, private servers, ect... Sometime all you can find of some rare record is 128bit files... Just be thankful you can even hear what those records sound like, and if you ever find the original you can buy it knowing its good or not.

Shane said...

I think he posted something earlier this week in which the musicians were all playing broken tubas, didn't he? And that is why I'll keep checking this website after work before I do anything else.

god, all these fucking geeks that complain about bitrates and quality of the rips!!

all of you geeks, dorks, and assholes who complain about bitrates and quality have some choices. Buy all the vintage vinyl and tapes yourself and then you will never have to complain to anybody again, you will only have yourself to complain to. Start a blog yourself and post things in your kind of quality. Contribute to Mutant Sounds and post things in your standard quality. Or the best choice for you is to just leave Mutant Sounds.

All three of you (or just the one of you) are not going to stop anything so consider your choices.

Mutant Sounds, just continue to delete the comments this idiot makes. It's probably just one over obsessed geek out there who is making these comments. But for his benefit I will say that it's probably just two or three people out there making these comments, oppossed to the hundreds that are happy.

I am sure if this blog was posting more bourgeois-avant-composer music like some John Cage type things there would be a couple of other small time dorks that would come here and waste their time complaining about bitrates and quality because those are the kinds of geeks who consider themselves to be some sort of audiophiles even though the record collection they have is very small and only features usually like two forms of music...boring and strict.

Mutant Sounds is posting things like DDAA and things that came out on Vanity Records, the majority of this stuff is out of print and very hard to find. The real people who are fans of this music and who really understand and appreciate the vibe of this kind of music are very thankful for the things that Mutant Sounds has always been posting.

But I don't think this lonely "amigo guy" is just some strict audiophile geek who only cares about quality. I think he is also one of these lonely guys out there who hates the idea of blogs posting rare records from his collection or at least his mp3 collections. The kind of records that he use to be able to impress his friends (or one friend) or at least himself with. These kinds of people hate the idea of any blog posting any cool rare stuff, they hate the music blog revolution in general. They don't believe that music should ever be shared. They want to keep music a hidden art. They are like all of those asshole vinyl LP dealers of the world who are extremely pissed off because they can't sell the Association P.C. album they have for $100 any longer, the blogs have shared it and the real music fans who would have spent $100 on this LP already have it now. These evil guys will do anything to stop blogs. The best thing is just to delete the comments by them and don't let them piss you off.

The true music fans appreciate everything that Mutant Sounds has already did in the past and is currently doing now.

Mutant Sounds, I know if must be annoying everyday to read and delete the comments of these really disturbed, selfish, and ridiculous people but just keep on deleting these few comments and don't ever let any of the negative energy they spread get to you. There are many Mutant Sounds fans around the world who are extremely happy and totally dig your cool blog.

thanks

Damnit MutantSounds - Now that you posted the DDAA tapes I guess I have to put up the RNA LP this weekend:-)

Look for it on Sunday. Some other cassette comps on their way as well.

Many thanks for posting these, I've wanted to hear these for so long, and now I can save the wear on the LP.

re: Klaus Bloch, do you need A La Ping Pong - Phase II?? I have that (unarchived at the moment)

there's a lot albums you have uploaded that have horrible blips and skipping. surprised no one has mentioned it yet...

ommyth said...

The frequently mumbled troll refrains could easily be diminished or curtailed altogether if the naysayers got off their asses and posted a few albums themselves! As it stands, we're not likely to see anything from them save for the same, lame-ass complaints.

This isn't a lossless bootleg site - rather, it's the shareblog equivalent of Oxfam! Mutant Sounds is helping to eliminate a wide range of aesthetic depravation woes, and for these charitable efforts we are rightly grateful...

The hungry don't mind if the spoon is plastic or the bowl has a chip in it - they just want good food.

Many thanks for the incredible feast!

Dont let comments dissuade, really. This is a resource and a half, just hearing this stuff in any form is fantastic for me.

the bitrate nazi is an interesting phenomena. with their spectrum analysis to determine whether or not the source material was really from tape or not.. it's a portable format. it will sound ok if you play it through a normal speaker setup. it will still sound shite through a laptop, doesn't everything? so they complain because it's not in flac with a log file... i'm glad to be able to hear things I wouldn't get to hear normally due to their ridiculously hard-to-get-ness, regardless of quality.

The Cruciferius album scrambles on the first track and there were about 3 or 4 others that did which I've unfortunately deleted. Sorry I didnt take note of thoes.

you are so small anonymous!

trolls go home. mutant - keep up good work we are behind you my friend support and love!

maybe mutant sounds is too stupid to realize the blips and skips are not in the original recordings.

delete this message.

punkfunk said...

Rather than deleting the message perhaps we should delete the messenger. It's instructive to see the kind of nonsense you see each day but posting this bile and having posters like myself respond is just what these trolls want.

your blog is by far the most important one, as far as i can see. as sophisticated as your project is, you gotta deal with ignorant or stupid people who can't complain. i, among others, will spend hours and hours of enjoying your posts. i can't thank you enough!

Hi everyone, this controversy about bitrates made me want to post my little comment too. First thing, this blog is GREAT. If Mutantsounds was at the head of a major company, maybe today's musical landscape wouldn't be so vomitory... Keep it going, what you're doing here is not only generous,it's NECESSARY.

But on the other hand, I must say, even if some people will call me names, that I understand the complaints about bitrates. It's not because a record is rare that it has to be listened to in poor sound quality. On the oposite, because if it's not in print you can't go buy it if you like it.

I don't have a blog myself, but I'm a soulseek addict, so I understand the problem very well. I'm also trying to share as much interresting and hard to find music as I can find, but I really pay attention to bitrates (no I don't listen to music through laptop speakers, and yes, you hear the difference between 192 and 128 Kbps).

It's true that some recordings are just not available in good quality on the web, and in this case it's better to be able to listen to them in poor sound than not at all. But the pleasure of listening evaporates a tiny bit in the process. It's like admiring a painting in a book. It's certainly not the same experience as being in front of the original, but it's certainly much better to see a beautiful full-page reproduction of it on glossy paper than a small one with faded colours, don't you think so?

The complaint about bitrates and ripping quality should not be adressed to Mutantsounds anyway, as he certainly didn't rip all the music he posts himself, but to all the people who rip their rarities with no consideration for those who will listen to them. I mean, what's the point?

I don't think anyone who writes a little complaint is necessarily a "fucking geek", but if some people want to see me as such, I don't care at all. All the good to you, Mutantsounds, and to your suporters too. This blog is amazing anyway, even with its little imperfections.

I noticed track 2-11 won't extract. Some sort of error.I downloaded it twice and the same problem occured. Any chance when your back from your holiday you can up the corrupt track?

Thx

mutantsounds said...

FM Shades--->try unrar it with the option to ignore file routes(or something like that) in winrar

un bruit de piano said...

The bitrate is ok. Not like If I could tell the difference, anyways.

J.H.M. said...

What a strange band... I like them, though. Very unique. The only other band I know with this sort of sound (and still not exactly that) would have to H.N.A.S. Cool.

Laurent said...

Thanks for that great post. I prefer listening to these recordings with low bitrate than not listening at all !!

Anonymous said...

Wow! I started current, and over the past few days came all the way back here page by page! I'd like to say this is a FANTASTIC blog, with TONS of very rare, hard to find, and/or obscure albums from all over the world! Without this blog I would never have been exposed to some of the fantastic stuff from Sweden, Italy, France, Belgium, Chile (to name a few I have downloaded)!

Also fantastic is how respectable Mutant Sounds et al are to the musicians themselves, in pulling things when they are re-released and/or when asked...except for the one nameless band that I saw posted, and for their rudeness they will never be listened to on my end! ;)

I'm a bit of a musician myself, who got so sick of it all, everything I ever did remained free at AcidPlanet (kindof crappy some of it, but...if you guys like some of the stuff I have heard, you may like the sound,lol!)

I just want to post a major thankyou! I see for all the whining from some people, the links are still around, and updated, and this site has lasted several years. I hope it's still active and continues to be! People need to experience more than just their little corner of the world!

As to the bitrate comments...geez people, lighten up. I played everything I have dl'd on an mp3 player, my car stereo, and my pc. Guess what? 128 is cd quality! 320??? You will NOT!!!! notice the difference! And some of the industrial stuff like Throbbing Gristle and such, actually sounds BETTER the lower the bitrate, LMFAO!

Trust me, I've been doing this stuff a lot longer than some of you bitrate geeks have been out of diapers! My first PC was a Trash-80 from Ratshack! I have done research and know what I'm talking about, and have experimented with listening on a pair of flat monitors using several different bitrates. 95-128 is fantastic! Yeah, MP3's are a lossy codec, however most human ears can't tell the difference. at least it isn't the pisspoor RealMedia format from 10 years ago with the bass so crappy your sound always came out muddy, or the OLD WMA codec that gave tinny artifacts! Some of you out there know what I'm talking about! ;)

So, lighten up and be appreciative, these guys are doing something, and giving of themselves time-wise and collection-wise, that they do NOT HAVE to give! It's true sharing, and if more musicians AND listeners did that, the crappy RIAA would collapse and the musicians could finally make what they deserve to make...and maybe all these one-hit wonders and teenyboppers, Mass-produced BoyBands and DisneyGeneration "musicians" would disappear or be forced to have some sort of TALENT to support themselves rather than put out the radio tripe we're force-fed daily!

THANK YOU and AMEN to Mutant Sound!

Best blog ever, sorry that the word appears to be that low. Every time I search for some good band, I fall on your blog.
you seem to be really open minded, it's really impressive, music should be like that every where ! Any chance to find you on soulseek ?
