  1. I believe it is a Spotify fan pressing... meaning NIN will not be sending out an e-mail. As others have mentioned, this may just be an exclusive press that someone got the rights to and NIN didn't really have much to do with it.
  2. Mine was top notch quality, but the 7 inch sounded mehhhh. Some of the best quality pressings in SWAPS from my ears are Panda Bear and Nils Frahm if you are into any of those. Both are unique to VMP (45RPM remaster for Panda; alternative album cover for Nils). I'll also prop up The Books and Main Source if you want to try something a bit different in regards to experimental or 90's rap.
  3. Off to ETS to see the salt that will be spewed by the NIN collectors... As others have mentioned, NIN's fanbase is filled to the brim with completionists due to the 'halo' model. This non-advertised, after the black came out, listing will drive some of em bonkers. Glad I got in... but at $42 CAD... it stings.
  4. I will say once NIN fans pick up on this, they will buy it and it will be gone. It runs about 2x the cost of the black version, but if you are going to kick yourself in the future about missing it, I'd go for it.
  5. New song is tits! Also just spent way too much on a 6 song EP/LP white version but screw it. My favorite band.
  6. As @YouTwo mentioned, you can sign up and swap for Clipse OR you can also sign up and probably buy it from the store in time. All Essential titles go up in the store eventually, so just keep an eye out here https://app.vinylmeplease.com/products/essentials I love the TVOTR pick. It is truly an essential album from the 2000s, in my opinion. Feels like they focused on one of the bands best efforts versus the Beach House pick. And frankly, given the resurgence of reissues / represses in general, VMP is going to have a very hard time finding OOP but really sought after records going forward. Most of the ones people clamour for (e.g., SFTD) have probably been explored ad nauseam. So if they are going to repress readily available albums, I prefer they choose the best of the best from bands that others may not have given a hard listen to.

    PO Soon: Washed Out - Mr. Mellow

    I agree with how disappointing this was, especially given the length and previous offerings. Glad to see some people enjoyed it.
  8. I post more on the VMP side as a lot of their exclusives and store variants actually end up cheaper for us Canucks than ordering direct through US/EU stores. I'm a big supporter and really enjoy how they expose me to music I wouldn't find on my own given time constraints, where I look, etc. That said, the forum is toxic as heck sometimes. There's a group of on/off/disgruntled members that struggle to not sweat the small stuff, and I just don't get it (I should, it's the god damn internet...). When I log on, 1/2 the time it feels like I walked into a restaurant with a bunch of people who HATE the restaurant but keep coming back to let the chefs and management know how they fucked up, or like a child who keeps telling you they are going to call the social services on you but you know they never will. Give up the ghost, please... Anyways, I do want to say that all communities have their issues, as I think VC can sometimes also display those aggressive / over-obsessive tendencies. But damn, the VMP forum takes it to another level sometimes...
  9. I feel like people want these without first listening to them... but I guess #thehobby
  10. AM will be available for a bit so you can SWAP this month for a different selection or Black Sabbeth(BS). If you are in for AM/BS I think you will find something else to enjoy in the swap selections in a 3 month membership. - Order BS this month (if possible?) - Listen to swap options over the next month. - Decide on a swap option or ROTM (probably Clipse if you are into hip hop) - Grab AM, ROTM or both (buy AM from store)
  11. I'm a 15 minute walk from Rotate so I will pop over tomorrow, as I also have to sell some beauts to keep the collections tuned. If it was 28 I'd be shocked, but I still think they wouldn't get the limited white given I haven't found another distro with it. Either way, I appreciate the head's up @armadillo01!
  12. Do you remember how much? I wanted the white and figured it would be hard to find outside of the official shop. Looks like I may have grabbed the last one too as it is now sold out?
  13. Holy moly this is what I have been waiting for! Thank god I didn't drop that $300 for it in that shop that used be in the Black Market 2 years ago...
  14. VMP have done this in the past. The National Boxer last year was simply a colourway of the widely available pressing. Some people feel the old AM pressing feels 'compressed' but really if you like what you hear, then I don't suspect this pressing to blow it out of the water.
  15. Sadly I don't think they are doing stand-alone side subs yet. But if you sign up for the ROTM, swap it out with something else you want (they have some old RH&H records in the SWAPS now if I am not mistaken...) you should be able to enlist with the side-sub then.
