Direct Metal Mastering and Animal Collective

So Fat Cat have reissued Sung Tongs and Feels on vinyl again but with a new version which is meant to be far superior supposedly, the new reissue features Direct Metal Mastering.

This sounds like a clever marketing ploy by Fat Cat to reissue this album on vinyl again to would-be collectors and old collectors as well but the question begs is this "remaster" any better than the original? I'd have to purchase a 2nd copy of these albums to find out. A description of the new mastering below:

Direct Metal Mastering uses the most advanced technology in vinyl manufacturing.
The groove is cut directly in copper metal. Transient response is greatly improved. DMM yields better detail resolution and a lower noise ratio. remastered direct from the original master and pressed on heavy weight 180g vinyl audiophile discs. This release is strictly limited to 1000 copies and housed in a plastic wallet. Mastered at Abbey road studios and pressed by portal space records. This is your chance to pick up classic Fatcat records albums in the most lavish vinyl format available.

For the first time in limited edition 180g DMM vinyl, ‘Sung Tongs’ is a dazzling, bold and adventurous pop album. Diverse in its scope and yet fully coherent, the album moves from chiming acoustic guitar songs to gentler, more dispersed picked ballads, to sprawling, guitar-swell psychedelics, bubbling, acid-warped vocal fx, and tribal, almost shamanic trance-outs based around looping vocals and hypnotic kick-pulses.


Now i love vinyl as much as anyone but i doubt the untrained ear would be able to tell any difference, if anyone has both copies let me know!

No shit, I was looking around the internet, trying to find out about DMM for the same reason. I recently bought a reissue of Feels for $20, and then a week later went to my local record store and saw the Feels DMM for $40. There is no difference in the package besides a tiny "Made in UK" on the $40 one. Now, I just spent way too much money on a new turntable/speaker setup and thought maybe I needed the DMM for great sound. So, last night, I listened to my $20 Feels with my head next to the speaker, listening for anything out of the ordinary, anything unsatisfying. I found none. The $20 Feels sounds great; although, if I had not bought the $20 "normal" Feels,
I would shell out the extra dough. But no, there's no real difference besides cost and bragging rites.

DMM itself doesn't have a great impact on sound quality, provided that the "normal" mastering was done properly.
However, DMM LP's back in the 80's were on occasion pressed as double LP's running at 45rpm, versus single LP at 33rpm. This greatly reduces the inner groove distortion and improves the sound quality.

DMM is not a marketing ploy but the real deal. Invented by TELDEC (Telefunken-Decca) to raise the sound quality bar for records, in an era where the CD was the threat.

It diminishes the groove noise by 10dB, which is a lot. It eliminates pre-groove echoes, and gives cleaner transients.
