I came upon this realization...

I came upon this realization when listening to my cassette copy of Loveless. At that point in time, I wanted the album in every format I could get my hands on. To my surprise, I found I enjoyed the cassette version of the album the best (better than my CD and vinyl versions). I enjoyed it so much, that it became my favourite album all over again. On closer inspection, I found that what was giving me this new appreciation for the album was that the tape was being played slightly faster than normal. It gave the album a brighter, tighter, more embryonic sound. It was like I found another world within the world of Loveless.
