Back again with another vinyl rip, this time of Takumi Iwasaki's debut album "Meat the Beat". I plonked down $50 on this album since the only version of it I could find online was the same shitty 192 kbps MP3 rip with carelessly applied noise reduction. Now here it is in lossless high-res quality for probably the first time ever:

This is a tiny bit more crackly than my usual rips, but even then this trounces what you can normally find anywhere else. Shame that there isn't a reissue since this is a brilliantly-produced album.
Feel free to distribute my vinyl rips or use them as part of your compilations!

I have no idea who this is, but given your other rips, I'm excited to listen to someone new. Thanks again for taking the time!
