I already have the Noshame disk. Will probably just stick to that.  ::)

Justin was saying that the Shameless print is nicer though. Doesn't suffer from the horrible stadards conversion that marred the otherwise excellent NoShame release.

Ok, seems like it could be worth it.

I'll probably end up getting it then but I'll wait till it's a fiver.
I've shelled out full price for all the others only for them to become fivers not far down the line so it's inevitable it will happen with this also.

Yeah, quality wise one hell of an improvement (tho' I haven't seen the finished disc, but am more than sure that Marc's done a sterling job) - there's certainly heaps more detail in what I've seen. The cinematography on Strange Vice is quite murky to begin with, so every little helps...
Regardless, great film, and nice to see it represented in the UK.

Like Aarron I'll wait until it goes down in price and then flog the NoShame disc.

Wardh checkdiscs arrived this morning. Will do a NoShame / Shameless comparison when I've managed to shake this atrocious hangover...

You'd think after helping them with the release they'd give you an official release version wouldn't you.

Not had time to review the whole disc - but it looks pretty good. My ultimate fear proved unfounded - the audio holes on the Eng dub are indeed patched. Obviously most of you are going to watch this with Italo audio and Eng subs, but it is nice that a non-fucked Eng copy exists...
I always felt that the NoShame was widely divergent in terms of quality. The opening, kinky dream scene and underground stalking session looked muddy, smeary and indistinct, while the slapfest flashback and various billowy curtain shots looked crisp and luminous. This is, of course, somewhat down to the cinematography, but certainly exacerbated by the standards conversion and forced contrast on the NoShamer. The problematic scenes, while still murky and gloomy, are greatly improved on the Shameless, and yes, one can actually see the rather hearty desserts Rassimov gets to chow down on in the dream scene, rogue hairs and all. But there is more to discussing the merits of a disc other than a discourse on Fenech's wonderful attributes, right?
Wrong.

I've heard the same atrocities done to Ennio Morricone's What Have you done to Solange? a while back...

I hate these rappers. I bet they don't even know what music they are slamming on. They just take whatever "the dude who know da' computer shit" manage to put together and add pathetic lyrics on it. It's mind numbing.

I remember an interview with an hard core rap band. The journalist asked "who creates the music in the band ?". The guys couldn't answer. They couldn't even name one composer, programmer or DJ! They said "hmm... well... you know...it's done in the studio...". They were just clueless about it.

I respect all forms of music as long as it's original (it doesn't even have to innovative). But these sampling mongoloids always get on my nerves!

Agreed!
I prefer a band covering music.

Actually the track was produced by Necro who knows his shit when it comes to Eurocult stuff.

Sampling done properly is an art, but not a lot of people can see that.

Over the space of near enough 26 years I'vr collected Hip Hop records I've heard people slag stuff off saying how unoriginal something is because they know a sample has been used but have praised something they thought was original beats until I pointed out that something was indeed a sample.

We all like different kinds of music Zarith, what sort of stuff do you like?

I'm not having a dig at hip hop, i used to listen to a little of the more main stream stuff. Today I prefer bands covering songs.  :D

Sampling, well done well, can be very effective. I actually quite the idea of remixing and reimagining older music and creating something new. And, let's be honest, there's very little originality around these days anyway. There's only so many songs that can be written using the chords that are available - the secret is in how those chords are played.

I like music from all different musical genres. As a musician myself I listen to everything and always keep an open mind, otherwise how can I progress as a musician? You have to embrace all musical styles and integrate it into your work.

My first impression was the same as Zarith's but now I've had this damn song stuck in my head for the better part of two weeks and I quite like it.
