mewithoutYou - Brother, Sister

The next installment in my quest to rip all the mewithoutYou Collector's Editio 2LP/45RPM cuts. I've heard this album hundreds of times, but never until I had to manually pick out surface noise did I notice that even the CD has subtle clicks all over it--are we hearing the click track? This master makes it somewhat more noticeable than before, whatever it is. Doing click removal by hand grants the benefit of discretion, and in this case, I opted to remove only what was added by vinyl playback in an effort to preserve the original recording, blemishes and all.

All that aside, it's a huge improvement in dynamic range. Definitely my new preferred version.
