Anyone ever noticed that the album has a real eerie quality. The production is almost ghostly. Listen to it with no distraction and really good headphones and you'll see what I'm on about.


It certainly does and there is some strange leakage at the beginning of Anything that sounds like somebody clicking drum sticks (like the sound of counting in a song) but not actually in time to the tune. Have you noticed that?

I just want to invite you all round to my house. Listen to it on Vinyl, dance all night and comb our hair into jelly rolls.

I know it's highly unlikely, but I wish that any FZ could be released in DTS. I've got five recording by other artists in this format and I believe the sound blows most everything else away.


Even though this has wandered off-topic, both Halloween and QuAUDIOPHILIAc (if you can still find them) are DTS (with both hi-res stereo and a 5.1 (or the latter, 4.0) mix).

I'm the kid who's greeting you through the window. Just in case you haven't seen me yet.

Thanks! I got Halloween and the DTS is great. Zeets is an experience.

I used to think my record must have been warped or scratched, which would explain the thud-like beat of the bass drum during Cheap Thrills. Then, a lifetime later, "Greasy Love Songs" was released on cd, and sure enough, there was that thud-like beat, again.

I prefer the original thud version to the remix. 8)
