  1. I'll second the DK Audiophile (and Double Audiophile) sleeves over the 2.0s. Have finally finished cleaning all the unsorted new/used titles and will now slowly be going through to replace my round-bottom 2.0s with new sleeves. I haven't had any problems so far with the round-bottoms, but I don't like that they can kinda slide around inside the jacket...or bunch up...but, yeah, there's not a whole lot of "antistatic" going on with those round-bottoms. If you hold off until Sleeve City does one of their 15% or more off sales, they're decently cheaper than the MoFi. I do find them to be a bit stiffer than MoFi sleeves as well, which I consider a plus. Then again, I store my records between the jacket and outer; I don't try to stuff them back into the jacket.
  2. Oh damn, the announcement is tomorrow. Almost forgot. And so begins the referral wars...
  3. Maybe you'll get lucky and there will be a few copies during next month's garage sale. I imagine you'll have to be quick on the draw, though.
  4. Heads up for the soundtrack fans out there...Score for The Crow is hiding in the Sale section on the VMP store. A whole whopping 12 doll hairs.
  5. Preordered, along with Page Avenue and Enema of the State. Hopefully everything ships out approximately on time. Haven't preordered this far out from SRC before. They're making a killing this year with all the reissues, but I'm with @vinyl addict on this one. Some of us just want a black record. That being said, my VMP copy of My Morning Jacket's Z is absolutely gorgeous. I just hope it sounds as good as it looks.
  6. Record Store Day 2017

    Yeah, UK exclusive. I was going to get it for a friend's wedding present. Now I'll just have to hope it doesn't get flipped for an astronomical amount.
  7. Record Store Day 2017

    Hopefully the complete lack of interest here in the Dark Crystal OST matches with real-world demand. With The Labyrinth getting a wide release later this year, this would make a great companion piece. then again, I'm kind of a sucker for Trevor Jones soundtracks.
  8. Record Store Day 2017

    I was originally joking about it with friends, but they seemed way more interested in it than I was
  9. I have a delivered copy of the Oxblood from their MerchNow shop, but won't make it back up to my house until tomorrow morning. I'll try to snap a photo for everyone. Didn't get it as part of any bundles though.
  10. SDRE - The Rising Tide Repress

    I know it doesn't account for much, but I couldn't get a straight answer from the guys at the Sub Pop shop in Seattle one way or another about a wider release. Apparently they're not getting told much, either.
  11. Record Store Day 2017

    Aqua being UK only just shattered my chances at what would have been a really easy wedding present for a friend. Back to the drawing board...
  12. I think it depends on how much they're being charged per record. Based on the overstock they have to order to cover damage during shipping, there's no way they're not getting some sort of massive discount on a bulk pressing/order. As for continuing to one-up themselves, I feel the staff have enough of a sense of humor about themselves that they might just deliberately put out a lemon to see how many people jump ship, but there's still plenty of untapped releases out there that they could pull something pretty big out that nobody was really expecting but everybody may not necessarily want...Savage Garden's S/T was never pressed, for example. I personally don't give a shit as long as what they choose has some sort of relevance and substance. Since I can finally take a second and address the "I don't want someone choosing for me" comment, that's totally your prerogative. Just don't see why you feel the need to shit on someone else who doesn't mind it as an option and has the disposable income to do so. I've certainly felt like I wasted more money gambling on represses of stuff I knew that was pressed like shit.
  13. They exceeded 10x their previous new subscriber gain. Don't think anybody would have anticipated that. They took a chance and at least they had the forethought to think about some sort of strategy to keep somewhat ahead of things. This could have gotten way uglier if they hadn't
  14. There should be a link to select your swap in the announcement email you get or it can be done in the VMP Store. Still have a lot of good options in there; wouldn't mind that Black Sabbath or BBNG.
