    I've been using Kiwi shoe polish for years with no issue. They have a few different colors but I prefer black so I don't compromise the integrity of the vinyl

    Maybe they are just keeping your money until you learn how to write a sentence or stop using lol like a 12 year old when it's not even relevant. P.s. You can probably get the blink 182 record you want from a board user.

    OP here, hahahahahahahahaha omg you guys are amazing, literally laughing out loud over here, some of them are comedy gold!! Also, that's some serious artwork right here... FYI I didnt, it came like that, mabye bc I signed up via Twitter: On a serious note, I didn't come up with that by myself, my local vinyl store recommended it, seen them do it as well, and I've been cleaning my vinyl (old and new) with Windex for 2 years now, never had any complaints, they actually always sound(ed) great afterwards. Soo idk what happened on this one, must've used a different brand than all the other times. Either way, can I get any honest ideas on what to do with this one, I suppose there's residue on it, any careful way to remove that?

    I would imagine this happened to you because the email you sent them to cancel your order was about as unreadable as this post

    Ok took a bunch of pic of my collection so I could catolog what I have figured I'd share it. Some shots comparing the OG presses vs the new ones. Hit me up if you have any questions.

    OP took all that razzing and followed it up with a great lighthearted response. Well done, welcome to VC good friend To answer your question: the damage is possibly already done, but the best you can do is clean it properly with record cleaning fluid and and remove whatever Windex residue is left on there.

    You're clearly new to the concept of Brand New threads on the boards, but that's okay. This topic will probably break 100 pages minimum, and remain active for a good while. Especially come October. General forum etiquette also suggests that you don't go into popular threads and tell people to cease discussion. Buckle up or piss off; those are really your two options here.

    I think you're confusing it with the OST for Sinbad's genie movie, which was 100% vinyl only.

    Some of you want a new jacket because of a seam split? C'mon guys, returning/requesting replacements is just going to jack up the prices for future releases. I can see a damaged record, but a seam split? Some of you need to stick to CDs.

    Good job lads. I think this might be the first time OP didn't throw a tantrum after a bit of light comedy. I'm guessing his German "windex" is probably much closer to being safe to use than ours. Actual windex is full of chemicals that just stick inside the grooves and dry. Ruining the record. Thinks to know: Tug is ridiculous We don't like Reddit vinyl collectors We hate our forum owners We are all hypocrites

    Very well said. You make fair points for both sides. Call me a negative nancy or whatever, but I guess the issue I'm having – and what I'm ridiculing – is the prioritization of FOMO. I see it a lot on the boards but only really spoke up about it, tonight, because it pertains to a release that I also participated in paying for. I guess I feel a little more weighed in to voice my 2¢ because I'm a customer who got "stung" like everyone else, instead of someone on the sidelines. I think you and everyone else are 100% correct in saying that this "repress" could've been handled a whole lot better. Doing a broader run on black vinyl would've made the most sense. Or a separate variant /3,000 or /5,000. Whatever DC sees fit, really. It's nice to feel rewarded for being on the ball and ahead of the crowd – anyone who's been buying vinyl and variants for any amount of time can probably relate to that feeling. But what my posts addressed were the people who basically lost interest in this release once it was determined that they're not getting a slice of a pie that's highly sought after. Maybe it's too abrasive for some people to hear, but I genuinely feel like if you're relying on a record's rarity or FOMO to make a $50 purchase - as in, that's the driving factor, above the music itself - you probably shouldn't be lining up to buy said record in the first place. I don't mean to sound condescending when I'm saying that, but I think it's super silly to be jazzed on a repress and then go soft once it's announced that a lot more people are going to have access to virtually the same exact product, even though they weren't glued to their phone or browsing VC during the 2 hours it was available. Most of us are in the same boat – the boat where we wanted this album, but didn't want to pay $100 for it. Some people are double-dipping just because, and that's fine too. The point is that there's ample room on this boat. Flippers are going to be salty about it and that's fine with me. And like I said earlier today, I'll probably feel burned enough to go through the hoops of canceling my order if these do indeed show up for half the cost in a stateside distro, or something. But I don't think the possible change in cost is what people are getting bent out of shape over. I truly think it's the lack of rarity, and I also think that's pretty dumb. Yeah, sure, it really sucks if you were misled to believe that you had to drop $45 yesterday, and now you're having to scrap by with Ramen meals or otherwise sweat until Friday, when it's payday. But at the same time, I'm not 100% sure you should be buying vinyl so freely if a surprise $45 drop is going to disrupt your checking account for the remainder of the week. But that's not really my place to say, you know? Just an earnest observation and thought on it. I guess at the end of the day, I'm siding with everyone who admits that they'd love to own one of the 1,000 copies of this reissue that went quick, and have something to show for it. Maybe a holographic jacket or something snazzy. I can see why people would feel like a tiny note on the center labels feels like a weak consolation prize for being among the first to order. But more importantly, and on a much bigger scale, I'm stoked as hell to own an untouched copy of this album for under $50 PPD, and I'm glad more people can join me in that excitement.

    Being part of a vinyl board and skipping songs in 2017? Yikes. Batter Up has some superb vocal melodies, too. It's such a nice comedown and slow burner after the string of tracks leading up to it. Love that hazy, surreal outro to it as well – sounds like wandering through a dream you're beginning to wake up from. Which is kind of perfect if you've got the album on loop and allow it to replay into the intro sample of the woman recalling her dream.
