Sleep “Dopesmoker” 2xLP

Shame on us for not writing this up yet. When this release was announced, there was some valid speculation on whether or not another version of Sleep’s legendary album was really necessary. After hearing the remastered version, we are both in agreement that it was, indeed, necessary. This is louder than you’ve ever heard the album before. There is more clarity and depth to the recording on this version, without sacrificing any of the sludge and red-eyed haze that makes it so spectacularly heavy in the first place. I would go so far as to say that even if you already own the Tee Pee version, as I do, that this is still a necessary purchase. The entire internet agrees. I will not attempt to explain the myriad of ordering options available, just make sure you pick this up – southerlord.com.

  1. Shipping to NYC is $15. WTF, Southern Lord? Would have bought this but I’ll pass.

  2. yea….. shipping….. wow…… no thanks!

  3. Southern Lord mailorder sucks ballz.

    p.s. If anyone cares about these things, the TeePee pressing is basically a bootleg – nobody in the band got anything for it. So if you actually really love and worship Sleep, buy this record and support the human beings who actually made the music.

  4. The shipping is on the unreasonable side, but I still had to pull the trigger since the record will undoubtedly look/sound amazing.

  5. “p.s. If anyone cares about these things, the TeePee pressing is basically a bootleg – nobody in the band got anything for it”

    This is not true, but just another rumor in the history of this release. It was legitimately released by Tee Pee, but is now long out of print.

  6. wouldn’t sleep on this one… no way.

    interpunk.com is selling the LP (180 gram black 1500 variant) for $27.50; $4.90 media mail.

    for those interested in a cheaper shipping option…
