  1. The Third Man Records Thread

    I do love Jack White and his various bands, but in my opinion, he really does not put on a good arena show. I saw him from the upper level of Madison Square Garden a couple years ago, and it was one of the most boring concerts I've ever been to. I've seen him a lot from the front of arena-size venues/festivals, but that was my first time high up. Totally not worth it. I think a big part of it is that he seems to eschew a large production (video screens, catwalk, flashy light show, etc.). Without those things, the energy really does not carry far.
  2. Has US shipping always been $36 for the bundle? Yikes.
  3. Yeah, Amazon courier. Left packaging feedback but doubt that I get any response. If they keep this up, though, I'm going to get super picky about minor dings, etc. and make them replace items with any issues.
  4. Amazon cutting costs on packaging? Here’s how my copy of U2’s “War” showed up today. FFS. Thankfully no damage, even in the snowstorm.
  5. 15 Passenger has the same colored versions up now. Apparently these are each limited to 2000 worldwide: https://15passenger.bandcamp.com/
  6. PO (Soon?): Beck - Mutations

    My copy from Sweden did, and I assume UK gets the same pressing. There was no indication on the sticker that the 7" was inside.
  7. Wolf Parade - Cry Cry Cry (10/6)

    In case helpful to anyone, I got my order confirmation at 11:33am ET the day they went on sale and got a signed copy. Also lucked into seeing them in Toronto tonight in a ~150 person room. Holy shit what a show. Saw them a couple times in the early days in rooms like that, but it's been a long time. Anyway, catch this tour if you can. New material is great live.
  8. PO (Soon?): Beck - Mutations

    Preorder from Bengans (Sweden) for about US$28 shipped: https://www.bengans.com/en/artiklar/beck-mutations-vinyl.html Same UPC as listed on Bull Moose, and tracklist includes the 7" bonus songs.
  9. The Third Man Records Thread

    In case you're still wondering. About an inch and a half of extra depth.
  10. PO up for new Matthew Good, out October 20: https://matthewgood.store-08.com/music/mg050028-matthew-good-something-like-a-storm-12-vinyl/
  11. Is this mould?

    Could be. You can always clean them with some diluted isopropyl alcohol if you're worried (Google for instructions). Make sure to replace the inner sleeves after cleaning.
  12. Agree. The only other similar box I have in my collection is this one (which happens to be the only context in which a pizza box is acceptable): https://www.discogs.com/Fat-Boys-Fat-Boys/release/4054743
  13. No reason to be using boxes like that. Such a cheap-out move. Very disappointing.
  14. The Third Man Records Thread

    Yep. Probably about an inch of extra space in the depth, and loose on the length/height too. And it's just a box--no insert to hold the book/print/pins as they've done on other box sets. You'll definitely need foam or, as trickster said, other LPs to fill the space. Can post pics later unless someone beats me to it.
  15. The Third Man Records Thread

    The box on this Vault is kind of disappointing. Way too big relative to the contents and no inserts.
