What a wonderful surpise this album was. Neighborhood Watch by Gregory Uhlmann. Got it free for ordering something from the topshelf webstore, I've got to say I'm surprised I like it! Reminds me a lot of my all time favorite artist, Alex G Sean Sandoval. Family Album by Stephen Simmons. Nashville Americana artist Stephen Simmons reaches deep into his own family tree for an album of clear-eyed, open-hearted storytelling.
Charming German indie pop with the keen melodic sensibilities and melancholic undercurrent of some of the style's best practitioners. From Liberty Street by Mapache. Rootsy cosmic Americana with good time family vibes from Glendale, California. Printer's Devil by Ratboys. My top release of by far. Such a good record from top to bottom.

The back of the gatefold is close to the original. The cardboard used is thick enough to withstand clumsy handling. Combined with a rather glossy finish it feels rather sticky. I always get the urge to wash my hands after I handled this gatefold.
This may be due to me buying the record second-hand but I normally only get this feeling with records way older. The inner gatefold is a beautiful, calm, rural landscape, typically for black metal releases of this era. The lyrics and credits are placed on the bottom of the inner gatefold and blend perfectly with the picture. The sleeves housing the records are plain black paper. Combined with the cardboard of the gatefold this drives me insane. Placing the record sleeves in the gatefold sleeves is a frustrating task, as they get stuck quite often due to the materials rubbing against each other.
The records themselves are as perfect as they can be. Sound quality: On a scale from hit to miss this is clearly a miss. I was really excited to put this record on but in the end I was really disappointed. The rest of the album is a wall of sound. It is save to say, that the original master was not used to create this reissue. I did some research and I strongly suspect that the master from the equally bad CD-reissue by Century Black was used to create this LP.
A comparison between the original release and the reissue can be found on the stevehoffmann. The various other sources like streaming on Spotify, YouTube and Amazon music sound way better.
Conclusion: While doing my research, I found a lot of posts complaining about Back on Black releases and even calls to boycott the label.
