Finally a repress of the sold out and in my opinion best record of M. Ward. The label say, that there will be a limited number of copies available on lovely green vinyl directly fromÂ Jealous Butcher Records. I don’t know how many are pressed, but they will sell out for sure. With the initial pressing from 2009 they released 500 on Translucent Blue and they go for big money now. i reckon, that this could be the same with the green vinyl.
M. Ward's 3rd LP has been out of print on vinyl for a few years now. We've gone back to the original plates for this repress and made a limited number of copies available on the lovely green vinyl you see here. Follow this link to preorder your copy now. Preorders will ship by the February 19th release date.
This, M. Ward's third album, places him in the forefront of a modern movement that is clearly progressive while simultaneously sounding regressive, feeling dusty with age, and manifesting a genius that is pure and untempered. His music defies description except to say it is coming from somewhere seeped in the early blues with a Neil Young overlay and the feel of country, blues, pop, and folk.
M. Ward makes beautiful music--sounds like you have never encountered--and he sings along with the melodies as if he can't help himself. Who could if they had this much soul? It is all coming from a very deep place inside him and you owe it to yourself before you pass--the main issue he is addressing on this album--to hear these songs because they are the most soulful and melodic tunes you will have heard in quite some time. This man lives in his own songful world and I can't thank him enough for sharing it with us on Transfiguration. If you put this album on your turntable it will be a long time before you take it off. The more you listen the deeper it gets--just like M. Ward, I suspect. This is genius, pure genius, and you need to hear it. - loujack, 2005
