If anyone has this box please hit me up. It's the last one I need and I pay good for it.
Akisame
My black copy edition sounds great. Too bad that the original composer yamaoka wasn't given credit. Also there's so much music from the game that is not on this soundtrack.
olgasmile
Absolutely fucked that they don't credit Akira Yamaoka on this or the Mondo Silent Hill LP.
Bajinn
Many fans give him these LPs to sign after concerts and he has nothing against it
Perdana
I'm really not sure what's the reason for this, and I'm pretty sure Yamaoka doesn't consider these as official releases himself, if anyone's gutsy enough to directly ask him is opinion on Twitter or Instagram... That could be interesting to read. He was credited on the original CD releases, so there's something else imo.
Ielonere
Artwork is okay I guess. I just wish that Mondo would use more official artwork on their releases. Sounds is good though.Waiting for Silent Hill 3 next, it's my favorite game in the series and I hope the artwork will be less bland than this.
Kage
Cover and back awful, couldn't they put the original art?
Breder
Probably cheaper to hire freelancer artists than spending extra on licensing official artwork from Konami
Fenius
@ the 2019 Mondo release - Bad artwork, blah blah blah. It's okay and reminiscent of the game cover with the same theme as 1, just hoped they left the title for the spine and obi as with continuity as before but also emphasised with the bleak fog and fuin theme in connection to the snowfall, blood and rust of the first game. Looking back they did it.Whats an actual issue prevalent with all releases so far is there seems to be important ambiences missing like Forest Trail that are more consciously prevalent to a playthrough then hearing 6 different scenarios when you realistically can only ecounter one at a time but I digress. Secondly is that Akira Yamaoka is nowhere to be seen for being credited which says something to either Mondo and Konami.
fetish
I don't get at all all the negative comments about the artwork. It could have been better but it's decent, and reminiscent of the game. Unlike the fucking disgrace they did on Castlevania IV, and so many other of their releases. Remember that first of all, Mondo is a Art Gallery, not a label, visuals first, sound comes last, and their visuals are questionable most of the time to say the least, even if they did some nice ones (Metal Gear Solid or especially Contra III was amazing).There's far worse than this cover art, we can estimate ourselves happy with the result when I see their catalogue overall.
Taur
If anyone is looking to sell a copy then send me a message!
Thozius
i just realized that the album art just looks like something made in Garry's Mod. really wished they used the CD artwork with Maria.
TheSuspect
As is often the case with Mondo, I wish they'd used the original artwork for the packaging instead of amateurish looking fan art. Pressing sounds great though.
Kea
While the packaging art is drag and generic I can gladly say the music is here in a good showing for the most part.We get an atmospheric soundstage utilizing the stereo well for most tracks but not all. It has power and especially depth behind it which fits nicely in this well resolving sound.Some dynamics might not be fully drawn out and separation could be better. Bass too is not as full as Id like it in places but for the most part its decent.Something I did not quite expect however is the vinyl quality here. Its got only very soft crackling at worst and a couple pops over the music on my copy. GZ might be starting to listen to the complaints.Equipment Used:Rega RP1 with Paratrace tipped Nagaoka MP-200 CartridgeCyrus 2 AmplifierSystem Fidelity SF-3050 Tower SpeakersCustom made HQ Speaker Cables
Kardana
other than the prevalent surface noise and some pops on my copy, it's an okay release.
Adoranin
There is no complaint on sound quality and I'm satisfied with the chosen artwork as well. This all could have been much simpler if you ask me. Overall this is a very nice release and I'm just hoping that Mondo won't stop issuing the remain episodes. Especially part 3 and 4: The Room.
Samuhn
My copy has some major sound issues on the beginning of the b-side track. Also i find many songs with noise in the background... so not the best pressing in my experience, unfortuantely.
Ance
Mine has too!!! Also is this a black vinyl edition?
Yramede
perfect sound, hope the Metal Gear release (and Silent Hill 3 hopefully) are this clean
Mojind
Usually I'm utterly wary of Mondo (their pressing sound quality is questionable to say the least) but this release thankfully sounds flawless!
Bulace
Good things first: I love this OST and I was waiting for many years fr someone to release it on vinyl. Also - mine copy has perfect sound quality. 10/10Now not-so-good things: Cover art - well, this is definitely missed opportunity, It easily could have been epic, and what has been chosen is so generic.. Pity. I like color ov vinyl #2, not so much the "fog" one.But after all, it's a solid release. It sold out so quickly, but there will be a black vinyl edition avaliable in other shops as well soon.
Fenrikasa
When I wrote that comment it was avaliable for example at zavvi.com, but now it says SOLD OUT as well :(
Buridora
Do you know exactly when and in which shops will it be available?
Marg
I was afraid to get a bad pressing because this one cost me a lot (with delivery and customs costs...). But mine sounds perfect. I think it is a matter of luck.
Love Me
DaftCold I was afraid to get a bad pressing because this one cost me a lot (with delivery and customs costs...). But mine sounds perfect. I think it is a matter of luck. I wanted mine packaged in a certain way but they didnt do it. Fortunately mine arrived without seamsplits. Also cost around 70$ in the end, records cost 35$.
one life
My copy arrived with a seamsplit in the jacket. Mondo replaced the jacket. Side A has an imperfection that creates a pop consistently on track 2, even after cleaning. It's also quite noisy. However! The noise adds to the atmosphere of the score, so it fits. DO NOT PAY OVER LIST PRICE FOR THIS. You'll be ripped off. I'm glad I only paid $35. I am now double thinking any future Mondo release.
Goltigor
When the D label is the best looking and most creative part of the art in this set you know its generic. The Silent Hill 1 cover was much better.
Faegal
You must know perfectly how I conduct myself as well then, even better than me it seems, because Ive not had any passive aggresive attitudes. Then again, you seem to be reading into things that arnt there many times.
Moswyn
If you were interested in discussing anything at all you would have clarified what you meant instead of projecting over vinyl records. I'm more than happy to listen, which is what I've been doing from the start instead of peppering my responses with passive-aggression and finger-wagging. If your next thought is "you've been doing it too," I'm fully aware of how I conduct myself and I only give back what I've been given. If this is the next hill you wish to die on, that's no big deal. You do you!
MOQ
I think you read too much into the word "attack", no need to be defencive about it. Metaphorically attacking an argument or statement is not the same as a personal attack. And I would be happy to clarify your misunderstanding but you seemed more interested in strawmanning sadly.
Hudora
I'm not attacking anything, that's genuinely how I read what you said. If that's not what you meant find a better way to explain it. It's like when I explained what a "bad record" is and you argued that. I don't have a problem understanding you otherwise; my point was, there are pressing plants with bad reputations and it doesn't matter who works with them. If you don't find that to be the case and that's the hill you wish to die on, it's really no big deal. You do you.I was agreeing with you about art on a record sleeve and having talked with you before didn't cross my mind until you brought it up again. I would call that an "attack" like you do for me but that'd be way too silly.
Kit
Yes I thought you might be trying to reference that, but thats not what I meant with the argument. Remember when I said that you didnt listen to what I actually say and just attack a strawman instead? Im getting some Deja Vu here.
Moonworm
Recall when I said a bad record is a bad record, and you argued me on that? No? Maybe? It's called sarcasm, I was paraphrasing you.
Nkeiy
"There's no such thing as bad records, only bad equipment as they say." Ah, no.
Agalas
GZ does a good job! They totally botched the Pyschedelic Furs reissues last year though with swapped labels. I suppose that's because Columbia told them not to take care in producing their product, and they didn't just slip-up what with how much product they're getting out the door regularly. They're doing a good job, aside from things like that.I mean, as long as you have good equipment it shouldn't really matter how good or bad anyone told them to conduct their business. There's no such thing as bad records, only bad equipment as they say.
Modifyn
kyle15 I wish they got the same artist again because I love what he did with the first one. At the expense of sounding rude Sara Deck shouldn't have been let anywhere near this; I borderline cannot stand her art. Also I feel like both should have been red. The white is ok but that red disc is gorgeous. Cant wait to hear the quality control Mondo puts on GZ ;^)))

Eigeni
Sounds excellent! Yamaoka's virtuoso ambiance and industrial soundcrafts shine through with a live patina. Nice, nice nice. Great release like the first one. Hoping 3 and 4 (and Origins, and yes, Shattered Memories) come on down the pipeline eventually. My only gripe is the cover art; it's so typical video game cover compositionally. With a wealth of imagery and such to draw from the game it's a lil eh they went with back-turned-to-viewer-and-floating-heads but it is what it is. (a silly thing to note for those of you a little too waist-deep in the world of internet nonsense, inner gatefold Pyramid Head is in a pose very similar to the Virgin/Chad meme which I cannot unsee and those aware hopefully won't unsee either) The little back cover spot-varnish "surprise" is a nice touch though and gave me a smile. Overall pretty perfect, don't miss it, etc. Here's hoping Mondo has another run made for those who missed out.
Zeus Wooden
I agree with you on the cover. Feels super generic and is a total missed opportunity considering all of the iconic imagery in Silent Hill 2.
Painshade
Great sounding pressing, my copy is dead silent there's not a single bit of surface noise. I gotta say the one thing that is kind of lackluster about this pressing are the colors. Specifically the red black swirl, if you're not looking closely it's easy to miss the redness of the LP it sorta just looks black at first glance. I also noticed that there wasn't a single reference (as far as I can tell) to the actual composer of the soundtrack Akira Yamoaka instead it just says the music is by Konami, which is pretty shameful if you ask me. But in the end that doesn't really matter, it's all about the sound and this pressing delivers!
Tto
About 8 / 16bit soundtracks, Konami Kukeiha Club is the name of their sound team, including all their artists. There was no soundtrack done by a single person for Konami Games back then, or almost, so it makes sense to use this to include all the group. For Silent Hill, Yamaoka is the only person behind the composition, and he was credited on the previous CD releases, just like it should be. I'm pretty sure Konami just fucked him up for whatever reason about these reissues, I don't know if he gave an answer how he feel about these vinyl pressings but I'd not be surprised that he consider these as bootlegs actually, speaking as the original artist.Anyway, it's both a disgusting move from Konami, but also from Mondo, they simply don't care much about their soundtracks and that's the proof, take Data Discs for example, not only they're working directly with some of the composers, but they also include liner notes from them in their releases (Streets of Rage 3 for example). Yamaoka is touring everywhere with his band and is not at all difficult to reach or to contact in english, I'm pretty sure he would have been more than pleased to help for these reissues but Konami probably prevented it, and Mondo, as usual, don't give a single fuck since their customers are 75% record flippers / instagram posers and 25% people owning a turntable, enjoying their records.
Landamath
Genuinely thought the red swirl is just okay. Wasn't as cool looking as I thought it'd be. :c
Runehammer
I agree that it's silly, but Konami doesn't allow specific composers to be credited on their soundtrack releases for some reason. You'll see that all retro OSTs are also credited to Konami Kukeiha Club and not the specific composer(s).The exception is Sunset Riders, which had the composer credited. However, iam8bit haven't released anything Konami since, so I'm getting a feeling that they didn't run the decision to credit the composer by Konami.EDIT: Since this was first posted iam8bit have released the TMNT IV soundtrack from Konami, so I guess they're not in the dark. But no specific composer is credited on this one either.

Usaxma
Same... (filling in for the ten word word limit limit)
Kelerana
Just finished the game for the first time I played it (I know almost 20 years after it's release but I'm not a "gamer") and it was a powerful experience, mainly thanks the soundtrack. Good pieces of ambient music sometimes fairy, sometimes dreamish but always aerial and somber which transcribes an atmosphere of deep melancholy.
caif
Masterpiece of ambient experimental music. This album is pure talent and devotion to music as an art form.It's a shame that just because it's a "video game" soundtrack it didn't get more recognition.. It's right up there with the best of them.
Yllk
does anyone have this ,>_> i would kill 4 it!!
Twentyfirstfinger
hey, do you happen to have any more copies of the cassette?

Akira Yamaoka the composer and producer of Silent Hill has made his best work on this part of the series "Silent Hill 2", the ost has a very deep and special feeling of loneliness and you also find dark emotional sounds in each track, like if you were dreaming while listening from the beginning to the end. This kind of music is what makes the game so special, you can experience the dark world of Silent Hill trough the music without even playing the game. I consider this soundtrack one of the best cd's ever released in the history of emotional music, it deserves a 10/10 for my taste, thank you Akira Yamaoka for making the fans of Silent Hill more amazed and satisfied each day of our lives. Most Popular tracks : "Theme of Laura", "Promise (Reprise)", "True", "Theme Of Laura (Reprise)", "Promise" My favorite tracks : "Heaven's Night", "Alone In The Town", "The Day Of Night", "Fermata In Mistic Air", "Noone Love You", "Laura Plays The Piano", "Pianissimo Epilogue"
