  1. It’s a strange thing this — I would think that clear vinyl would definitely sound better than any other cloloured vinyl, including black as there is no colour dyes added to the vinyl. How wrong am I!? Most of my clear vinyl records not only don’r sound very good, they are also mostly very noisy!

    LIGHTS’ acoustic take on her third album Little Machines is one of the better sounding clear vinyl I have but not outstanding. Joao Carvalho’s mastering is actually quite beautiful here, how I wish this was pressed on black and and a better pressing plant for that little boost on its dynamic range.
