  1. PO SOON: U2 - Songs of Experience

    Pre-order for this will be going up tomorrow according to some friends in the know. Standard and deluxe versions, here's a photo of the deluxe. Rumored $50 on Amazon.
  2. PO - Brand New - Science Fiction

    As pumped I was to get my indie exclusive and as much as I really love this album - I'd have to agree the vinyl listening experience was not as great as I'd hoped.
  3. RSD Black Friday 2017 thread

    The U2 release is a limited edition of the new single "You're the Best Thing About Me," somewhat unfortunately.
  4. Like others, I love the album and it's been in my wantlist for awhile, but the price point seems high. I'll watch the Amazon thread for this one.
  5. https://www.mybloodyvalentine.org/shop/default.aspx 180 gram vinyl album mastered from analog tapes using Studer A80 VU PRE and Neumann VMS 80 cutting lathe for full analog signal path. Comes in a heavy weight tip-on style gatefold sleeve with poly lined printed inner sleeve. This vinyl is purely an analog cut and therefore does not include a download.
  6. INXS Store has red and black versions available for pre-order now. 2017 marks a triumvirate of anniversaries for the legendary Australian rock band INXS. It’s now 40 years since they first formed the band; 30 years since Kick made them global superstars; and 20 years since the untimely passing of their iconic frontman and friend Michael Hutchence. “You can hear this album like you’ve never-before,” says Giles Martin of the new 30th-anniversary Edition of INXS’s seminal sixth album Kick. “You can hear Michael so close to you, you can hear his breath. You feel like you’re in the studio with the band. You have a record that’s 30 years old, but it’s been taken in a completely new direction and you can listen to it in a completely new way and it becomes new again. Great music and great songs, they don’t get old.” 2017 marks a triumvirate of anniversaries for the legendary Australian rock band INXS. It’s now 40 years since they first formed the band; 30 years since Kick made them global superstars; and 20 years since the untimely passing of their iconic frontman and friend Michael Hutchence. For vinyl enthusiasts, there will be a Half-Speed Remaster of the classic 1987 album cut over two heavyweight, 180g LPs at 45-RPM for supreme fidelity, cut by Abbey Road Studios’ Half-Speed Mastering pioneer, Miles Showell. Includes Download Card & certificate of authentication. “Classic, fabulous pop songs that jump out of the speakers, now more than ever before!“ Andrew Farriss of INXS says of Kick’s new edition. “The latest INXS vinyl cuts are an outstanding sonic achievement, especially the Kick album. I was truly amazed to hear INXS’ recordings sounding so incredibly fresh, clear and kick-ass, like vinyl on steroids…” Side A 1 Guns in the Sky 2 New Sensation 3 Devil Inside Side B 1 Need You Tonight 2 Mediate 3 The Loved One Side C 1 Wild Life 2 Never Tear Us Apart 3 Mystify Side D 1 Kick 2 Calling All Nations 3 Tiny Daggers Release date: 11/17
  7. The Vinyl Deals Thread (non-Amazon)

    Hell yeah!! Had Exit Planet Dust in my hand in a shop the other day and just didn't want to spend $30 on it. This rules.
  8. Some Cheap Vinyl at Amazon

    Mezzanine back down to $12.43
  9. PO (Soon?): Beck - Mutations

    I'm assuming there's still no update on Midnite Vultures? (or The Information, fwiw) replied to the wrong page, i see the discussion above.
  10. That I can thankfully pass on. I've been gunning for a copy of Bernstein's score for the original NOES since I've been collecting - currently having an internal debate over whether or not I need the rest of the box to justify what's going to be a pretty steep pricetag.
  11. I'm gonna need a fat wallet when they/DW finally announce the NOES box set...
  12. PO: Pearl Jam reissues

    Ha, I needed a new slipmat and was at the PJ Wrigley shows. This is a hugely convenient score for me.
  13. PO: Pearl Jam reissues

    10c just emailed me and told me I'm in the "shipping queue" for Lets Play Two and that it should ship soon. Not getting my hopes up for a special variant, but I guess we'll see when it gets here.
  14. The Concert Thread

    Saw U2 in Kansas City a few nights ago - they're my all time favorite act, especially to see live, and I've seen them 10 or so times over as many years...this most recent show really blew me away. They hadn't played this tight in years! Just really locked it in and delivered. This was my third Joshua Tree Anniversary show and very easily the best. I also work in a venue so I'm seeing shows most nights - coming up in the next week, we'll have Jonny Lang, JJ Grey & Mofro, Dale Watson, and a few others I'm excited about.
  15. Yep, Road Apples is great! I didn't realize it would cost $90 to ship. I'll definitely be waiting to see if this is carried in stores, or at least well-reduced
