The Secret Machines are never going to make it to "The . Ten Silver Drops is an album in need of some plan of attack. Lacking the dynamic cohesion that made its predecessor more than the sum of its tracklist, it feels like merely a collection of random tracks, which, despite their common themes, begin to sound haphazard in their arrangements and sequencing.

On their second album, Ten Silver Drops, Secret Machines have scaled back some of their musical ambition in favor of melody and emotional honesty. Their first album used epic-length tracks, spiraling guitars, fuzzy organ tones, and breathless vocals to propel the band into the realm of inner space traveled by Spiritualized, among others. The cool thing was that they tied these drifting surfaces to a rock-solid bottom reminiscent of Led Zep, sometimes with propulsive beats straight off a Neu! track. There are still plenty of guitars on Ten Silver Drops, and still lots of space and atmosphere

The Secret Machines have offered up a truly beautiful record for its second release. 0. I think this album does a good job of telling what was to come.

Secret Machines are ostensibly a guitar, bass and drums trio with plenty of clout to their sound, and lots of big melodic songs courtesy of brothers Brandon and Benjamin Curtis. But the refreshing thing about them is that they are adept at sidestepping rock cliché. Lean and limber with a canny grasp of dynamics and a mercurial sense of rhythm, they pull off the trick of sounding quintessentially American while also embracing, for example, the motorik propulsion of Seventies Krautrock exponents Can and Neu!

I would add - I grabbed and Alone Jealous and Stoned 12" single off discogs and it sounds loud and clean and fantastic. There are many to be had for cheap. It's obviously not the whole album but that and the other songs on 7" are enough for me. I don't think I'll chance the extra coin on this OP or reissue.
For those of us who have the original release this one is a very very poor copy of that one, that btw isn't the greatest packaging ever produced. Sounds well but overall is just an average rerealease.
The record does play quietly, of course one hopes that means it has much more dynamic headroom than other editions. To me it sounds wonderful. The pressing is flat and no surface noise and sounds magnificent with what seems to me really well done mastering.
I have always absolutely loved this album. The packaging is just beautiful and well put together. Unfortunately, I find the actual music lacking. The record seems to be much much quieter than any other record that I have, so much so that I need to turn my amp (headphone and stereo) way up to have it at a listenable level. I also find that the low end that I always loved is very lacking, especially in the first track. It really does not have that bottom drive. I can EQ some to bring it up, but honestly I prefer using source direct to listen. After waiting four months for this record and being excited seeing the packaging I was rather disappointed when I put the needle on the record.
I feel the album still sounds pretty great despite having to turn it up. It does seem that the bonus disc is mastered a bit louder and it sounds great. I wouldn't discourage anyone from picking this up.
I agree that it does seem to be mastered at a very low level. I had to turn it up significantly to reach my normal listening level.
This is exactly what I was afraid of. What you're hearing is at least partly due to cramming too much onto each side. I messaged them as soon as I saw it was up for possible repress and begged for the original LP to be spread over two LPs. They said "...we’ll make sure that it gets produced to the highest standards". They should have skipped the bonus material and just split the source material (hopefully remastered for vinyl) over 2 LPs - spreading it out alone would have been a huge help. Optimal pressing time caps out 20 minutes. "Maximum" is supposed to be 25 and this exceeds that. It's a shame, because Now Here Is Nowhere sounds pretty dang great.How does the bonus disc sound? Does that help make up for it?
